Who Are We


Stories to Savor has received a project inquiry from Juvanna Johnson, who aims to create a compelling reality show focused on the intricacies of addiction and recovery. Her vision is multi-faceted, covering both male and female perspectives, and highlighting the stark realities of addiction—from relapses and overdoses to triumphs like sobriety and personal growth. Although she's in the initial stages of her venture, her objectives are well-defined: to save lives and give back to the community.



  1. Initial Consultation: Schedule a 30-60 minute consultation between Juvanna and Stories to Savor for an in-depth discussion of the project. This is targeted to take place tomorrow between 2 pm and 5 pm or alternative slots later in the week.

  2. Project Evaluation: Review the feasibility of Juvanna's project, identify potential challenges, and determine how Stories to Savor can offer support. This includes aligning her needs with one or more of our service offerings like video production, social media marketing, etc.

  3. Budget Alignment: Discuss the financial aspects of the project to understand its scope better. Juvanna has indicated a willingness to invest between $800-$2000 in professional video production and a maximum of $600 monthly on digital marketing. Align her needs with this budget.

  4. Strategy Development: Based on the consultation, develop a tailored digital marketing strategy that meets Juvanna's expectations, primarily focusing on life-changing content that appeals to her broad target audience of men and women aged 17-80.

  5. Milestones: Set measurable milestones to evaluate the effectiveness of the digital marketing strategy in meeting Juvanna's primary goals—saving lives and community betterment.

At Stories to Savor, we are committed to transforming your social media platforms and video production into a compelling and captivating asset for your reality show/Docuseries.

Our comprehensive project for your Docu-series on Addiction and Recovery starts with an initial week of consultation, requiring a 50% upfront payment. This sets the stage for research, pre-production, and two pivotal filming sessions at your facility, all supported by a tailored digital marketing strategy. An additional 25% payment follows the first filming session, with the remaining balance due upon project completion.

The project timeline spans 15 weeks and includes the release of two carefully crafted pilot episodes. Importantly, social media marketing is not just an add-on but a critical component to amplify the impact of your series. It serves to engage your target audience more effectively and is integral for the message you wish to convey. Discontinuing the social media service requires a 30-day notice, and charges will be prorated accordingly.


Stories to Savor is committed to maintaining clear communication, meeting project milestones, and ensuring the highest quality production to create impactful products for Ms. Jackson's Docu-series
