What our clients sayRead All Reviews
I didn’t realize how much I needed ‘Make Lemonade’ until I started using you.
Working with Make Lemonade allowed me to achieve something I could never have achieved on my own
Make Lemonade’s content was incredibly well-thought-out. They use a great template and everything was uploaded without any fuss. Best of all, their articles started ranking quickly, getting some results early.
I’ll definitely be using their content again. I’m a bit of a control freak with keyword research… okay, a lot of a control freak… but their content and processes were so good that I’d even consider letting them take the reins on that too!
Everything I hoped for!
My experience working with Make Lemonade has been exactly what I had hoped for in working with a content agency! I worked closely with Adam to identify keywords and articles that were the right fit for my site.
He was incredibly responsive, went above and beyond with the work, and most importantly, the content itself was fantastic and I immediately saw an increase in google rankings and organic traffic.
Outsourcing the content production has allowed me to fully focus on outreach, promotion, and building the business.
I’ve had a great experience working with Make Lemonade as Adam and Mark have been very responsive to all my questions and concerns from the start. The quality of articles have been great and it’s been amazing for my content budget. I would 100% recommend using their services.
Everyone at Make Lemonade is really kind, it’s just been a nice experience
Finding good writers that follow instructions has been impossible for me, until I signed up for Make Lemonade. I’ve only been with them for a month, and see myself using their services long term.
I am quite picky, but Adam has worked with my requirements, and even got on a Skype call to help me figure out a few things. And when I asked if it’s possible to use WP instead of the Thrive templates they use, he took some time and figured out a way to make it work.
GREAT service and AMAZING customer service. I’m looking forward to some sweet results.
Make Lemonade always takes the time to look in to my site and give me pointers which you don’t really get anywhere else unless you’re paying astronomical amounts of money.
Highest Level Service
Make Lemonade is the highest level service that I’ve ever tried.
