Milo Sindell President, Skyline G

“If you’re looking for Case Studies, this is a really nice little organization to partner with. Our experience, frankly, has been excellent.”

Franklyn Peart Co-Founder, CentreStack

“We’re already recommending SK to our customers. It is important [for a company] to have social proof. The more social proof, the more it matches the experience your prospects are looking for, which builds trust - a key factor in closing a deal faster.”

John Morgan, Director of Marketing, Elemental Machines

“SuccessKit has been great. I have created Case Studies in the past and I realize how difficult it is to get them to commit and be fully engaged. SuccessKit is able to draw out key points - we can tell them, ‘ABC company had this problem,’ and they will document our solution.”
