    Here’s the thing – most “publicists” and “press release distributors” are lying to you. PRWeb / Marketwired / Business Wire / and similar distribution services are great for “SEO PR” and - used skillfully with well-written releases - can definitely build backlinks, traffic and conversions. But if you want stories that are actually written by a human journalist that appear in the pages of a magazine, newspaper or on radio or TV (let’s call it “traditional PR”), you have to email those journalists directly. NO JOURNALIST EVER READS PRESS RELEASES COMING ACROSS PRWEB. I can help you with both SEO PR and Traditional PR. Consider me your full-service outsourced publicity department. I am here to offer you my 20+ years of corporate and freelancing experience to write releases, develop media lists, construct PR plans, consult on strategy and even coach you or your staff members on outreach. I can't tell you how many times I hear someone complain about the PR agency they hired for $2,000 per month that talked big and got them nothing. And when I ask what the agency did, it's no surprise that results were lousy. Many publicists try to keep the process "mysterious” but really, with an understanding, tools, and guidance, anyone can be a publicist – it’s mostly about developing press hooks, writing good releases, keeping a flow of information going and understanding the mass numbers game and saturation effect. Want proof? The majority of pitching at the high-powered agencies is done by young, inexperienced college interns because it's so simple. Yes - you too can be a publicist! My approach is to offer an affordable flat-rate "a-la carte" style service structure to provide small businesses and independent entrepreneurs with the specific PR services they might need. I love pulling back the curtain to teach “civilians” how PR really works and am always eager for general phone consultations and education. SERVICES INCLUDE: * Writing Press Releases and Pitch Letters * Educational packets to understand the overall "PR thing" * Media lists - I maintain a CisionPoint account which is what corporate PR departments use to develop lists. It’s quite powerful, and quite expensive - basic subscriptions start at $5,000 annually - but I can provide you with the complete contact information needed to reach hundreds of human journalists. * Managing premium distribution services with uploads and editorial changes * Creating a long-term PR Plan - this includes things like key deadlines, some developed press hooks, outreach strategy, timing, etc. * Regularly scheduled calls if you'd like, to do a quick check-in / status report / advice session. ABOUT ME: * I worked a decade at the director level for a pair of well-known Fortune-500 media companies, handling national publicity with outlets ranging from "Good Morning America" to "Howard Stern" to the New York Times and People magazine, as well as hundreds of local print, radio and TV outlets. * After leaving the corporate world, I have freelanced extensively the past nine years with online marketers, building SEO release strategy via premium services such as PRNewswire, PRWeb, Marketwired, etc., to dramatically increase traffic to websites and Amazon pages. * I have written literally thousands of successful press releases, bios and web copy. * I have produced hundreds of short and long-term PR plans, for both large corporate clients and small businesses and am happy to help you. * I have several years experience in the rapidly-evolving field of Reputation Management and can help push negative Google results from Page One to Page Nine and lower. * I've written numerous successful Kickstarter projects, including the highly successful Sea x Sky backpack ($10K goal, $559K final pledges)

    Think of me as a Content Whisperer. I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO I AM. I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. I approach every job intent on finding a happy ending and we aren't finished until we get there. HOW I GOT HERE. I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. HOW I DO WHAT I DO. Asking questions, lots of them, and listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME. Read what my clients have to say about their experience working with me and my pledge to arrive at a happy ending, every time with every assignment. There are hundreds of reviews from clients that have become friends in virtually every industry and over thirty countries around the world. I look forward to hearing from you but know that I've made my practice not to take on work without conversation to first ensure a mutual fit. It's the path to happy, successful ending. Until then, wishing you good health and great success. andrew

    Hello. Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile. I am a full-time freelance writer living in Portland Oregon. Over the past fifteen years I have written over 250 works of fiction (5,000-80,000 words each), numerous articles, essays and a batch of biographies. Each were well received and display my flexibility as a writer. I'm at my best when creating strong female voices. I am college educated with a degree from UMass Amherst. English is my native language. Deadlines are not a problem. I will not waste your time or mine with clever covers. If unexpected circumstances arise and I'm unable to meet a deadline, I'll let you know as soon as possible. Words are powerful tools when used properly. I treat them with respect. I pass everything through Grammarly and read it aloud before submission. I read compulsively and my natural curiosity makes me an excellent researcher. Often a writer in my position must give away the rights to a project. While I gladly do this, I take my work personally. I will offer my best to you and deliver what I promise.
