In a video review, Nathalie van Wijkvliet, the marketing director of Avanca, was interviewed about NewsWatch and said, “We love it! The team is great, the support is good, and the interviewer is excellent.” She went to praise NewsWatch for their aid in the promotion of their crowdfunding campaign. They needed 10,000 dollars in 30 days and, with NewsWatch’s help, they surpassed their goal and reached 456,551 dollars. With such a huge increase over their goal, it’s no wonder Avanca has worked with NewsWatch on multiple occasions and gives them such great reviews. Nathalie had also said, “We highly recommend working with the NewsWatch team.”
