SEO Copywriting and Blogging

Are you seeking more traffic for your site? Whether your end goal is selling a product or drawing attention to a worthy cause, organic search results are the most cost effect method. Dropping keywords conspicuously isn’t enough, though. My specialty is in attention-grabbing and well-researched, evergreen articles with seamlessly integrated keywords to keep Internauts landing at your site and making their way to your conversion page.

Need more than just writing? I am proficient with the WordPress platform and can take certain administrative tasks off your hands.

Although I am happy to learn about new topics, you may want to take advantage of my areas of expertise, which include:

• general economics/business/finance
• East Asian languages and cultures
• general health
• athletic training
• and more. Just ask!
