FEEDBACK!

“We did a survey last year of our guests and many of them said they knew about our event, [Watoga Art in the Park], from Hashtag Lewisburg publication…exciting!” – Gail Hyer, Marketing Specialist at Pocahontas County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. June 18, 2018.

“Your article featuring the Asylum’s Burger of the Week helped boost sales and draw attention to our ongoing burger specials. It’s clear that Hashtag Lewisburg is being used as a guide to what’s going on in Lewisburg. It’s definitely the “Social Newspaper.” Christina does an excellent job! – Paula Marie Thomas, Asylum manager. October 24, 2017.
