Writing for Websites

Do you need your website and web copy written and optimized for the search engines? I am a trained SEO content writer. An interesting and informative website is one key to a successful business—and it should be well written too!

First, you need a web developer. I’ve been working with Suburbanbuzz.com for a decade and recommend the company as an awesome website builder. Then you need a content writer to create your marketing copy. That’s me—your content writing specialist!

Digital Content

If you already have a website, there are simple solutions for improving it. Strong content writing is the key to maintaining a website that works as hard as you do. See the tips below:

  1. If you have less than the optimum word count on each page, your site is lacking. Do you need help with content? I produce excellent content and can help your website compete with other sites. Hire me to populate your website and I’ll take care of these issues.
  2. Have you ever clicked on a website filled with typos and grammatical errors, or a website that had awkward flow? It makes me wonder why anyone would invest money into their site without having it proofread. Hire me to proof your website and it will have the professional presence your customers deserve.
  3. Some sites aren’t optimized for the search engines. Search engine optimization, or SEO, is an effective method to attract traffic. If you want people to find your site and you want it to rank on Google, I can help ensure your site is optimized with powerful and key word-rich content writing strategies

Blogging

A blog is key to transforming your site into a dynamic sales tool. Stagnate sites do not attract traffic like dynamic sites. Google loves news and considers a blog post to be news. By adding fresh, unique content on a consistent basis, you are feeding the search engines. In fact, you become an authority and rank higher than even large firms when you blog frequently and apply SEO content writing practices to your posts.

But what if you aren’t sure how to blog effectively? That’s where I come in. I love blogging and have written for many industries, from medical to real estate to legal to plumbing. A good blogger will know how to create content for topics that are important to your business, as well as generating ideas and producing key word-rich content.

All businesses need an active blog and a good blogger! Hire me to blog for you!

Social Media

I love social media and am pursuing a master’s degree in digital media. Do you need to jump start your social media presence? Or do you need help keeping up with it all? I love to write for social media platforms and administer pages—Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and more. I can link your blog posts to your social media sites and push traffic back to your website. I can also watch for comments and feedback, and then relay questions back to you.

Magazine Articles and Interviews

Check out the Magazine Portfolio section of my website. I have tons of writing samples and recent interviews. I accept editorial assignments worldwide and often help coordinate local (Houston area) photo shoots. When you need to contact and interview a  subject, I can help.
