You don’t want your readers to nod off and drool all over their desk or their shiny new smartphone when they’re reading your content, do you? Heck no! You want them to consume your articles and keep coming back for more.
That’s where I come in. I don’t like writing. I don’t even love it. I’m cuckoo for cocoa crazy for it (what can I say, I loved Cocoa Puffs as a kid)! With today’s insatiable demand for information on the web, you can’t afford to lose out on potential customers due to ho-hum content. I'll not only write you some killer content, I'll make sure it's well-researched and that your content stands out from that of your competitors. For me, the challenge is part of the draw!
I understand the importance of SEO, but I also understand that it's the content that turns traffic into actionable leads and keeps people coming back for more. Point being, I write for humans but I also make sure bots get their egos stroked too! The same goes for print. You may not be as worried about SEO for printed materials and publications, but you still need content that makes readers hungry for more.
I’m not just blowing smoke, I have 10 years of editorial experience spanning writing, editing, design, and content management. I’ve managed more than 20 freelance contributors, trained six copy editors, coordinated and contributed to 72 print issues, one nationally published book, more than 120 email campaigns, and 12 road maps/travel guides. I've also designed two nationally published collector's edition magazines, as well as numerous media kits, marketing and sales collateral, advertisement creatives, and more.
I work hard and I always make my deadlines. My aim is to exceed expectations and I will always deliver my best. Why? It's simple. Your content or design reflects on me too—and I want to look good, just like you do!
