In his recent article, The Biggest Content Marketing Trends in 2017, the Content Marketing Institute's Joe Pulizzi said:

"Writing still counts, perhaps more than ever. More than not, marketers are abuzz about social media and video without comprehending that most of our communication is still text- and story-based. And frankly, most marketers are really bad at writing."

The bottom line always has been that marketing fails without strong writing as its foundation. It is for that reason my firm existsto add immediate value to your thriving enterprise with my expert editorial content writing skills to help you reach the marketing objectives that can propel you to your next revenue level.

My niches are commercial and personal finance, business and property insurance, residential real estate, business operations and development, and legal marketing. I also write about HR, travel, and some lifestyle content. As I would I've done with actual journalism work, much of the content I write for brands is well-researched, editorial content.
