Arley’s Comments:

Great work! You’ve done a lot of effective research and have clearly organized this section. You give a lot of great advice to the reader and have shown some effective examples. My biggest piece of feedback would be to think a little more about the brand voice. You’re getting close, but you can work on the sentence level to make sure that your brand voice is consistent. Overall, good work!
