Professional Salon

Welcome to our professional vendor site. Here you can find the people who will work with you to develop your writing skills, your story, and your marketing strategy. We have trusted, reliable and transparent experts in their field, working diligently to serve their client's specific writing, publishing, or marketing needs.  

WIC practices due diligence in vetting and interviewing each professional listed in the Profesional Salon. Each professional is an independent contractor and as such contracts directly with individuals. While all professionals listed are personally interviewed, vetted, and have agreed to adhere to WIC guidelines of being transparent, communicate readily with their clients, and perform their expertise with integrity in a fair, honest, respectful, manner, WIC, its founder, representatives and officers are not responsible in any way for the independent arrangements made between WIC members and any one of the chosen professional(s) hired. In summary, members are personally responsible for their relationship with any vendor and vendors are independent contractors who answer directly to the members they contract to work with.

In order for any vendor to be listed on our site, each have agreed to meet the following criteria: 1) be professionally proven in their field; 2) be willing to provide references to our members; 3) have a proven track record to follow through and do what they contract to do; 4) offer our members a discount; 5) act respectfully and listen carefully to the client's needs. In return, WIC requires its members to provide timely compensation and would ask each member to regard the expertise given by our vendors seriously and thoughtfully. If you have personal questions please send an email to [email protected] or post your question on the forum for other members input. 

Vendors are listed in alphabetical order.
