Damn-good ghostwriting for your small business
You wish great writing would magically appear on your website.
You want your site:
1. To look current
2. To generate new traffic
3. To help visitors decide to buy
The problem is: you don’t have time.
You don’t have time to write. And you certainly don’t have time to keep up with SEO trends. If only it would appear on your website with the wave of a wand.
The other problem: the White Screen of Death.
Although you’re capable of writing for your business, you’ve faced that blank document before. The cursor blinks, and no words come. What do you write? Is there anything new under the sun?
That’s where ghostwriting come in.
A ghostwriter sees your business with fresh eyes. They take your vast knowledge and make your company shine. A ghostwriter generates website content that’s both Google-friendly and useful and engaging to your potential customers.
I love ghostwriting
My work is to do a Vulcan mind-meld, pulling from your brain what you know know about your industry and its customers. With this information, I produce interesting, engaging, SEO-focused copy for your business website.
Instead of doing the writing yourself, it magically appears. You get all the benefits of an up-to-date website—with a fraction of the time investment and almost no frustration.
Ghostwriting supports your goals
When we work together, you get great website content that:
addresses the needs of your target market
sounds like your company’s brand and “voice”
helps build customer trust
attracts new visitors from Google searches
Note: This content is yours. You can use it any way you like, with no copyright or attribution to me. For example, you can reuse it in a newsletter, on social media, or compile blog content into a book to generate additional profits.
Once you pay me, the content is yours to use forever.
Why I’m the best choice for small business ghostwriting
I’m both a practitioner and an expert. Since 2007, I’ve run a web-based business using online strategies to promote my products and services. In addition, I’m a part-time instructor for my local Small Business Development Center where I teach small business owners strategies to generate sales online.
The online marketing game changes constantly. I nerd out on keeping up with it. The best way to stay relevant online is consistently producing excellent, key-word rich content.
You’re my ideal ghostwriting client
If you have a growing business with at least a few staff on board
If you’re innovative, and your business is an outgrowth of your passion
If you want to increase your sales without increasing your marketing workload
If you like delegating work to knowledgeable, competent experts
Businesses and owners like these get the best results from my writing. Do they sound like you?
1. I write your website copy
If you are creating a new website or rebranding an old one, you need compelling copy that answers key questions and engages customers. Website copy can include pages like Home, About, FAQs, and more. My content development strategy is consistent with current SEO practices and based on years of experience running an online business.
2. I keep your blog up-to-date
If you’re neglecting your blog, you are missing out on a fundamental SEO opportunity. Content is key to getting Google’s attention and standing out from your competition. As a ghostwriter, I can turn what you know into weekly, twice-monthly, or monthly blog posts.
As a blogger since 2007, I understand how this strategy is changing and how to stay on top of trends for the best results.
3. I help you make money (sales pages)
If your products and services pages are not written with the customer in mind, your sales might be lackluster. That’s why I use time-tested techniques to write sales pages that convert visitors to paying customers and/or qualified leads.
For best results: My sales page writing skills will absolutely make you money if…
1. You have solid products and/or services
2. Your site has a clear check-out/lead generating process
3. You are using an up-to-date strategy to drive traffic to your site
If not, let’s talk. I can help you get more leads and sales by working on the pages that make you money.
