Freelance Writing

Chances are, if you came here, you already know my name and my work. (If so, you may skip to the rates section.) If you don’t know me or my writing reputation, read my short resume, and continue reading!

I’ve been paid to write, online & print, since 1997. As a freelance writer & ghostwriter, I specialize in creating interesting editorial content (articles, interviews, blog posts, opinion columns, etc.) to match your brand’s character & engage your audience.

Writing to engage an audience is not merely a goal, but a distinction which sets my professional writing services apart.

Whether the article is to inform, explain, persuade, or entertain, it’s always written with the reader in mind. That means I don’t write SEO articles per se; instead, I believe in organic SEO and write for humans. (For a deeper explanation, see my article on SEO here.) Whether you have Business-to-Consumer (B2C) or Business-to-Business (B2B) communication needs, I’ve got you covered with articles which appeal to human beings. That’s the first step in engaging them.

Engaging readers means involving them in your site, your business. Be it a conversation or comment, a bookmarked or shared link, a newsletter or RSS subscription, a sales lead or purchase, or other call to action; I write to get answers to those calls. After all, the goal of your written content is to evoke a response, have something to show for it, right?

Simply put, I write to meet your needs by focusing on the needs of your readers and targeted audience.

A few other things you may wish to know:

Everything is 100% original, written and researched by me. I do not farm-out or outsource writing projects to other writers.

Purchasing ghostwritten articles grants you full rights to the written works: you publish them in your own name and may rewrite them, sell them, insert links, use them however you wish. (If you want to know how to make the most of your articles, consult with me about the  dos and don’ts of written content!)

Over the years, I’ve written about pretty much everything (except highly technical specialty or medical fields), so don’t hesitate to contact me about your writing needs.

That's what an experienced Internet marketing specialist, social media marketing professional, helps you gather & determine.

Content is only part of the equation.
