Service Description

Hi, I’m Kristine M. Smith, an on-call writer for business owners and entrepreneurs who need cash-yielding results.

I write captivating website content, articles, brochures, and other materials that promote my clients’ products and services to their target audiences.

I’m painfully aware that online, you have just eight seconds to capture your visitors. I don’t squander them–or a single second that follows.

If I can get as drunk on your cork as you are about what you do, I can write for you.

Sad Story: Too many start-ups “go cheap” when hiring a copywriter. Because quality matters, those who do “go cheap” are inadvertently telegraphing something about the reliability of their products or services:

“Hey, I can’t afford a good copywriter. I’m running a shoestring operation here, hanging on by my fingertips.” Translation: Don’t expect me to be here in six months if my business doesn’t turn a profit real soon!

80% of start-ups fail the first year; more than 90% fail within five. Why is that?

Lots of reasons. But one of the primary reasons is that start up business owners usually don’t spend enough to hire a writer who knows how to raise their profiles and keep people engaged and coming back.

Start ups that cling to dimes lose dollars.

A copywriter worth the title MAKES clients money; she doesn’t cost them a dime! Are you thinking, "How can that be?" Keep reading!

* Hiring a competent writer is deductible as a business expense. The cost comes right off your taxes...
