Content marketing is the new normal.

Content marketing is the creation and sharing of online material such as blogs and social media posts that stimulate interest in your business. Not only is it a fantastic way of engaging your customer base and building trust, but it’s become the go-to way your customers find you.

However, many entrepreneurs find that creating quality content is time-consuming and tedious. And the fact of the matter is if you’re not making the most of your content, you’re losing out on potential customers, partnerships, and revenue streams.

I can help.


Managing a blog and social media content may be the last thing you want to do today, but for me, it’s a fun, exciting challenge. I save my clients’ time, energy, and all the headaches involved with creating online content while getting results. How do I do that?

First, I get in front of your potential customers by optimizing your content to keep you at the forefront of search results. I’m not talking about keyword stuffing, but thoughtful, longtail keyword placement that works into content seamlessly. Keywords, like hashtags, are tools to help your customers find YOU.

Second, I create content that matters to your customers because it’s valuable: informative, interesting, inspiring. My goal is to get your customers to act, whether that means planning a trip (how?!), buying gear (which stuff?!), or booking a night somewhere amazing (but where?!) by empowering them to make a decision. This builds trust between you and your clients so that the next time they have questions or are making plans, they come directly to you.

Who do I work with?

I work with many types of businesses and publications in the finance, health, lifestyle, and travel industries. I write content for businesses who want their content to matter to their clients.

What do I do?

Content Strategy Planning is one of my favorite activities. I work with you and your team to create a content marketing plan that sets goals, makes the most of your sales or event calendar, saves time, and gets measurable results. Strategies including blogging, social media, and guest posting.

Long-Form Content Writing is a pillar of content strategy. The average length of top-ten search results is over 2000 words. I take SEO by the reigns and get your site to the top of search results while offering readers the content they need and actually enjoy. Beyond blog posts, long-form content includes Ultimate Guides, Lead Magnets, and e-Books.

Website Content Writing consists of things like product descriptions, employee bios, and landing pages that gain client trust and convert visitors to customers.

Social Media Management is one of the three pillars of e-Commerce success, but it is also a major time suck. Let me take your social media to the next level, organically building followers and earning engagement to keep you top of mind.
