ABOUT ME: I have a unique record of success building high-traffic websites, verticals, and audiences. I've also led highly successful app and product launches. I combine data-driven strategy, a deep understanding of SEO, and old-fashioned editorial excellence.

I'm known for building and growing strong and loyal audiences in a sea of internet noise.


CREATE a strategy to build or grow your audience.

IMPLEMENT the strategy.

TEACH you how to continue to do it.

I customize the plan to your needs and goals, but it usually includes many of these components:

Analyze Metrics * Audit Content * Create Content Strategy * Create Editorial Calendar * Analyze Social Media Metrics * Create Social Media Strategy * Analyze Site SEO * Create SEO Strategy * Create Style Guide for All Platforms * Consult in Hiring Content Creators * Create Content Process + Workflow * Train New Creators in Process * Create Inbound Marketing Strategy * Consult in Creating Content Partnerships * Create Influencer Marketing Strategy

WHAT IT TAKES: This process takes 50-75 hours and costs ~$8-20,000. I often also continue working for clients on retainer for 5-10 hours per month.

THE FINE PRINT: I am only offering this full-service package and am not taking smaller projects. This package works well for start-ups and mid-sized companies that want to take their digital presence to the next level. I live at the intersection of words and technology, so I truly enjoy this work.
