Service Description

I'm interested in both article-length and book-length projects as well as blogging, copywriting, and editing. When editing, I'll cover not only spelling, punctuation and grammar but also overall content, technique, flow, redundancy, and clarity.

I'm also interested in marketing projects with an emphasis on social media, developing website content, and managing email campaigns. I can set up your Infusionsoft account from scratch or jump in midstream to help you design and manage your campaigns, email broadcasts, and sales funnels.

While I'm more than happy to do isolated (that is, one-time) projects, I've really enjoyed developing ongoing relationships with some of my clients, working with them on longer-term bases. I've assisted with start-ups as well as established businesses, helping my clients reach their goals ... and learning a great deal in the process.

Areas I'm particularly knowledgeable about and interested in include but aren't limited to....

Outdoor skills, activities and adventure
Travel in the U.S. and abroad
Wilderness survival, preparedness and rescue
Home decor
Real estate
Eldercare
Literature, both fiction and non-
Creative writing
Film
Fitness
Current events
Home and office organization
Personal finance
DIY and gardening
Sociology and interpersonal relationships

Although I'm much more concerned with quality and client satisfaction than I am with speed, I can work quickly if need be. So if you require a fast turnaround with quality results, please...
