Whether personal or business, our stories come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from articles and books to “About Us” pages to social media posts.
Before we can start putting words to them, though, it’s important to understand what our core underlying story is.
Who and what is our story about? Why does it matter so much to us? And, most importantly, why should it matter to somebody else, like a prospective client or customer?
The story building process is about me asking some questions, listening to your answers, and the two of us exploring together what the best way forward is. Which are the parts of your story that need to be filled in yet? How does it align with the story your audience tells itself? What would be the best format to bring it to life?
In short, it’s the critical first step before your story can be brought to life.
Do you have a story you want to share with the world? If so, then it’s a great time to be alive. These days, articles can be published in a wide variety of outlets, both online and offline.
What’s more, articles can take the form of anything from a casual autobiographical yarn to brand marketing to an informative thought leadership piece.
So whether your goal is to establish yourself as an industry expert in your field or simply connect with like-minded readers, I can help.
I’ll work closely with you to give your article a clear shape, then make sure it’s compelling enough to keep somebody’s interest all the way to the end.
Coauthoring & Ghostwriting
If you have a personal story to tell or a professional idea to convey, but writing isn’t your strong suit, I can help.
Depending on your needs, this collaboration could either be credited (coauthoring) or uncredited (ghostwriting), and as short as an article or as long as a book.
Whatever the case, contact me when you’re ready to move forward. And keep in mind that in addition to (or even instead of) the writing, I can also help with any brainstorming, planning, outlining, and research aspects of your writing project.
About Pages & Profiles
One of, if not THE most important parts of your website is the “About” page (or pages). This used to just be where people went to learn more about who you are, what you do or make, and when you started doing it.
These days, the about page is where visitors expect to find a compelling and authentic story: one that tells them WHY you do it, what your mission is, and how it aligns with theirs.
Likewise, many third party websites like Facebook and LinkedIn give you space to talk about yourself and your business. These “profiles” are yet another great opportunity to tell your story to the people you want to connect with.
Web & Original Content
Once you’ve got a story to tell, it’s important to let it grow beyond the “About” page on your website. I can work with you to write or rewrite the text on all parts of your site, from the homepage to the contact page, in a way that keeps the story consistent throughout.
In addition, I can help you strategize and write content for blog posts, white papers, case studies, sponsored content, or even printed collateral.
Refinement & ESL Help
Do you already have some writing ability, but still want to make your story as strong as it can be?
Or maybe your writing skills are great, but English is your second language? In either case, all you may need is some proofing, editing, or refinement help.
So whether it’s for your website or you’re contributing article content for outlets like Forbes, Huffington Post, Slate, LinkedIn, or Medium.com, I’m happy to help you strengthen your writing before it goes out the door, so you can put your best face forward for the world to see.
