My team at 5WPR is well beyond just an agency partner - they act as a true extension of our brand. They're always willing to go the extra mile and jump through whatever hoops necessary to make our business as successful as possible. 5W delivers a significant number of resources which is so appreciated by a small indie company such as Gussi! I hired this 5W beauty team at my previous company and brought them over with me when I joined Gussi. It's fair to say that I pretty much can't live without them!
