Hi. I’m Melanie the marketer!

I’m the go-to person for marketers, copywriters and designers who get overwhelmed with the amount of client work they’re managing and need a skilled marketer to carry part of the load. (Being too busy is a good problem to have, as they say!)

They need a marketer-for-hire — someone who can step in and partner with them on a short- or long-term basis, often producing some type of content for their clients. This could be writing blog posts or white papers or developing a multi-month email campaign. Or the creative pro might need a hand managing their client’s social media marketing channels or need to tap into my WordPress expertise to manage or update a client’s website.

Together, we share a mission of keeping clients delighted, delivering quality work, producing measurable results and finding innovative, new approaches to marketing and communications projects.

I also work with business owners, helping them make traction on critical marketing efforts they need to do — but have been avoiding.

I work with businesses of all sizes, but I enjoy partnering with small businesses and nonprofits. Often, the business owner has a marketing sense and knows his or her company’s differentiators. But the business owner is too busy running the company to make time for marketing and, often, marketing really isn’t the owner’s strong suit.

If you’d like to know more about what I do for creative professionals and business owners, learn more about my background, check the services I offer, or contact me to schedule a face-to-face or phone call to discuss how we can work together.

Partnering with Melanie for my clients is a dream. She is both a strategic thinker and a practical, hard worker. She challenges me and contributes in all the right ways, is willing to pick up the ball when needed and always meets her commitments. She is respectful of my client relationships, as well. What’s best is that I learn from her along the way, and we have constructive debates that make us both better consultants and writers.

I highly recommend Melanie as a partner and collaborator.

I initially connected with Melanie online over our shared love of the keto diet. This connection quickly turned into a business relationship when I hired Melanie to write a series of emails for my new keto-coaching program.

With Melanie’s understanding of the ketogenic way of eating, her writing skills and her ability to match my desired tone and voice for the emails, she was quickly able to write them on my behalf — and to my great satisfaction. This saved me a ton of time and allowed me to get my coaching website completed. Consider me a happy client!
