I get both.

Why We’re a Great Fit

Track Record: My content has been seen on The New York Times, Business Insider, The Next Web, and several dozen more, including the Grammar Gang.

Experience: I’ve worked both in-house and as a consultant over the past decade with clients like Hilton Worldwide & Hulu, among other companies across North and Central America, Thailand and Australia.

Knowledge: I have an MBA in marketing, and am a HubSpot partner with all certifications.

 

The Fine Print

What do you write?

✅ Long Form Articles: Primarily 2000 word blog content for marketing-related startups.

✅ Pithy: Short and concise wins.

✅ Data-Driven: ~2 hours of research before writing a single word.

✅ Reality > Theory: Practioner first; writer second.

✅ Insight: You couldn’t pay me enough to rehash the same ‘influencer marketing’ listicles (no matter how many upvotes it’s bound to get on Inbound.org).

✅ Voice: My first headline on this page was, “Stop Publishing Shit”. I thought it was funny and memorable. But my conscious got the better of me in the end.

What does it cost?

✅ Depends on term, frequency, and desired length. But usually somewhere between $0.60-$1.50/word.

Too much? My company might be able to help you. Check it out.

How does this work?

✅ You provide a general idea of audience & topics you’re interested in.

✅ I will send over monthly article pitches with a few headlines & description ideas.

✅ You OK the ones you’d like.

✅ My turnaround time is usually around a week. Once we get started I can plan ahead and give you firm dates going forward.

✅ My rate includes all brainstorm, research, content, images, etc. Pretty much everything.

✅ I typically bill or invoice when content is ‘accepted’ by you (prior to publishing). Longer, in-depth projects may require an up-front deposit. You can pay through either Stripe or PayPal (links for both included in my invoices).

Do you ghostwrite?

❌ No. But my company might be able to help you. Check it out.

Like you, I only want to work with the highest achievers and best possible people. So I’m very selective, and right now I only have room for 1 ongoing writing slot.
