  • No Pants is the New Pants

    I tell my clients if you want customers to look your way, you have to give them the honest-to-Pete real you. How does your product live in the world? How does it help people? Why should they believe you? What can you give them that no one else can? My advice for the adventurous: Take off the pants. Lose the pretense, the jargon and the self-aggrandizement. It is not about you. It is about what your company and your products do for your customers. That is the story I will help you tell. One of the wisest things I've ever read about product marketing came from the writer of a children's book. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, creator of The Little Prince, said, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work ... teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." For business owners not sure of what to do with the internet, digital media, mobile technology or social media, I am their digital marketing, content marketing and e commerce specialist. I help them figure out what draws attention from a finicky market and how to tie their marketing efforts to profitability. As a writer, I work with clients who insist upon personality, uniqueness and courage in their marketing. Content is at the heart of a thriving company. It requires doing more than just putting words on paper. It means showing customers the value you deliver. Your customer is the only one that matters in the conversation. Make sure they know that. I have worked with a lot of clients who have been willing to show their heart. Here are some of their websites: www.beards.net, www.seoriver.com, www.mywifipassword.com, www.dayoconsulting.com, www.enterprisetraining.com and www.rezoop.com. Companies are in the business of making money. Unknown territories like SEO, social media, Web analytics and new media are a little less intimidating with a little (or a lot) of help from someone whose business is marketing with messages. There are a lot of terrible writers out there. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. My hourly rate and project bid prices reflect experience, quality and innovation. Mediocre rates will give you mediocre messages that will bring you mediocre results. If you are okay with mediocrity, please look elsewhere.  less

    I have produced virtually every type of advertising and marketing piece in use today and have won both market share and awards for my clients as a result. I can apply old-school direct marketing techniques to any medium and can be as creative and original as the project requires. I can also write to very specific character counts and meet the tech requirements of any CRM system or CMS a client has in place. While I have worked in many different client categories with great success, I excel at making technical communications understandable, actionable and compelling for B2B and/or B2C marketers who wish their target audience to commit. In short, I can improve your click-through rate and make your phone ring. Major brands (see my samples) trust me with mission-critical projects and with print pieces produced in the millions. You can, too. In addition to being a highly skilled traditional and Web copywriter, I am a proven SEO expert as well.  less

    I have worked as a freelance writer and editor for more than three years; in that time I've been a part of four long-term projects and a host of shorter, one-time projects. The content I've worked on is quite diverse, ranging from biographies to e-commerce products, as well as miscellaneous topics such as health and medicine, food, fashion, technology, insurance, business and law, home and garden, education, and more. I can handle pretty much whatever comes my way, breaking down complex topics and making them easily accessible whether I am writing or editing. My command of grammar is impeccable, and I have worked with Chicago and Associated Press styles extensively; I have some experience in APA and MLA as well. Although I am a native U.S. English speaker, my work includes Australian and U.K.-based content. More importantly, my journalism background has taught me how to juggle several tasks at the same time. I can prioritize and complete tasks under tight deadlines without compromising quality. Although I'm equally capable of working independently with minimal supervision, I thrive in team environments where feedback and constant communication are required. For several projects I have assisted with style guide development and expansion; I've also done quality assurance, ensuring that writers and editors were meeting style and content requirements. I take pride in maintaining good relationships with the writers and editors on a team. When it comes to providing feedback, I can handle even the most complicated grammar issues. I've trained writers and editors, and heard many times that they appreciate my thoughtfulness and helpful suggestions. My approach is not just saying "fix this"; I provide guidance and examples so that writers and editors can learn and improve their skills without stabbing blindly in the dark hoping to hit on something that works.
