What I Do

I call myself a freelance copywriter and content marketing strategist. But what exactly does that mean?

The short version is that I write words on digital platforms to help businesses get more leads. In terms of topic, I love working with B2B businesses that make a social impact. Whether in health, education, or environment, I do my best work when I’m helping mission-driven organizations thrive.

Here’s how I do it:

I strategize and write blog posts

My specialty is in blog content management, strategy, and writing. I help businesses use their blog to capture leads at the top of the funnel. I work with clients to identify action-based goals (e.g. sign up for the email list, schedule a free consultation, sign up for the free webinar, or simply click through to this link) and create content around those goals.

I help clients identify and target longtail keywords, optimize their content for these keywords, and bring in traffic through search engine marketing.

I do extensive market research to get inside the target audience’s head and understand how my client’s blog can offer better and higher quality value than what’s already out there.

I also help clients promote themselves as thought leaders in their niche. No fluff pieces, no empty writing. Good, solid work that shows their expertise and authority in their space.

I write persuasive website and sales copy

I also write copy to help capture leads lower down on the funnel (closer to making the buying decision). I work with clients to do market research and analysis before writing anything. For example, I look at pain points, primary and secondary benefits, customer avatar and segments, and a competition analysis, amongst other things.

Copywriting is a bit of a different skillset than content writing. It requires an understanding of the principles of persuasion, different templates and techniques for selling, and overall a creative flair for coming up with “sticky” and exciting words that sell.
