Any business I do with Gussy Sews generates big buzz for me and my shop. The holiday gift guide was a constant source of traffic for me and I didn’t have to worry about renewing any advertisements since I was on there for a few months. It was great to not only be a part of this, but I discovered new shops to love as well. Gussy Sews is and has been one of my top referrers! Maggie goes above and beyond in being a host for your sponsorship. She truly cares about you succeeding and for that I will always stick around!

As a new indie business owner, finding your niche in the online world can be a scary and daunting challenge. The customer service I have received with Gussy Sews advertising has been amazing and they made me feel warm and welcome right away. The traffic to my site is growing daily thanks to Gussy and I couldn’t ask for more. If you are a new business owner, even Gussy’s blogs are inspirational and can motivate you to the next level.
