Service Description

With more than three years in online media, I know what will and won't take off on the internet, and as an employee of the internet journalism field, I've spent a long time familiarizing myself with effective key words, tags, SEO terms, and photos to create viral content. I know that a story needs the following for it to thrive on the internet:

* A compelling image
* A unique set of SEO keywords that aren't oversatured
