A Word from the CEO
We're a copywriting agency fueled by a lot of passion, talent, and commitment.
It’s been quite a journey since I started my agency in 2011.
Today, I’m a top content marketer, best-selling author (So You Think You Can Write? The Definitive Guide to Successful Online Writing), host the Write Podcast, created #ContentWritingChat on Twitter, and I’m a contributor to major publications including Content Marketing Institute, Huffington Post, Search Engine Journal, to name a few.
My roots were humble. I dropped out of nursing school in 2011 to do something I loved, writing. I self-taught myself at every step of the way, taking on hundreds of freelance clients, and I figured out how to make a living at it. I walked into content marketing along the way, and instantly fell in love!
The secret sauce to creating incredibly good online content?
A ton of practice, even more hard work, and a pure passion for writing.
I look for all these qualities when I head-hunt every new member for our team. Our tests rule out all but 2% of applicants. Once our writers are in the team, we ensure success with ongoing mentorship.
Since our early days, we’ve grown to include over 60 copywriters, strategists, social media experts, and hundreds of clients around the globe.
Our exclusive editorial process is a 5-step, foundational point that stops unexceptional content from passing through. Check out our process page for more. We’re confident (and structured) to create at all content levels – authority-level, general blogs and web pages, industry expert content, infographics, blogs, social media creation and management, and much more.
We’d love to become your new go-to content creation agency! I personally guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.
