Web content strategy
Tame the content monster
The best way to ensure your web content meets user needs and business goals is to combine solid content strategy / planning processes with proven editorial best practices. I’m not a consultant. I provide practical, hands-on help at various stages of the content process, including content creation, to help build better websites.

Second-look writing and editing
A pair of fresh eyes
You’ve redrafted something so many times you can’t face looking at it again. The company website or brochure writing has ground to a halt. Your annual report reads like it’s been written by 15 different people. Time for fresh eyes?
