I'm co-founder of The Blog Squad, a Doctor of Psychology, and I have a specialty in content marketing for the Web for small businesses. This includes articles, newsletters, blogs, ebooks, white papers, and ezines for executive coaches, authors, speakers, and consultants. You can't have a strong Internet presence unless you've got good content. How's yours?
Here's how I can help you:
1. I can provide a review of your online content.
2. I can coach you for better online writing.
3. I can provide you with content for blogs, e-newsletters, and white papers & ebooks.
My story is never short.
You don’t live as long as I have without having a long, long story.
I am passionate about writing. I was trained as a journalist, wrote freelance in Europe for 18 years, and then became a psychologist.
However, this is not my story.
In high school, I won a scholarship from the Ford Motor Company National Journalism Competition, enough to pay for my college, and ensure my love for writing for life.
Nevertheless, this is not my story.
I worked hard as a psychologist and coach. Then I discovered I could make a living writing on the web. I founded Coaching Matters & Customized Newsletter Services in 1999 and continue to provide that service to a great group of professionals.
This is my story…
One day my husband and I moved to Lake Chapala, Mexico to (sort of) retire. We bought a home and sold everything in the US. I stopped all career activities (psychological testing, coach training for therapists) but I kept what could do online from Mexico: writing e-newsletters.
Lesson #1 Change is good. Technology is great!
I earn money working from home and play tennis every day! No commuting, no office to go to, just writing, and making money with plenty of time for fun.
Lesson #2: Fun is important! Learning is important too, and when I’m constantly learning, I have fun.
Lesson #3: If I am going to work hard, I prefer to be working for myself.
Here’s some more of my story.
One day I learned to master the powerful KickStartCart all-in-one database management system for my business.
Lesson #4: You CAN earn money while you sleep. The Cart makes it possible for new orders to be processed and delivered automatically.
Lesson #5: Writing is key.
You must have a number of information products, reports, ebooks, to offer clients in order to have sales. Hence, writing is crucial. It's marketing with content: content marketing.
One day I was home on my birthday (Sept. 4, 2004) and I was frustrated because I couldn’t update my web pages myself.
I was writing an ebook on how to do an ezine, and I wanted to post something about that on my website.
I got an email promoting blogs for businesses. It said “Any idiot can set up a blog and start posting on the Internet within an hour.”
That resonated with me. I’d been called worse than a “techno-idiot”. I went to Typepad and set up this blog and was published on the Internet within a couple of hours.
Lights went off. I immediately saw the potential for other professionals who want to be in control of their web pages and get their messages out to a global audience.
Within 6 months I had formed The Blog Squad, wrote a book on how to Build a Better Blog, was blogging daily on 3-4 blogs, and had built a huge audience of people asking questions about this “new fad.”
This is where the story gets interesting.
Within 2 years I had tripled my revenues, grew a database list of prospects ten fold.
I continue to provide all sorts of Internet content marketing and services to busy professionals like you.
Just because you buy a pair of new shoes, it doesn’t mean you can dance!
Anyone can set up and write on a blog; making your blog work for business is an art and a science.
A business blog is essential, and there’s more to getting results than you might think (Hint: Content Marketing!)
