Writing services for businesses

business writingAs a successful magazine and newspaper journalist who has interviewed hundreds of businesspeople and proprietors over the years, I’ve lost track of how many people I’ve seen lose valuable opportunities because of poor communications. Clients, customers and new markets are reached not just through referrals and the salesmanship of individuals but through the written word. Often, the first contact the public has with a company is through a brochure, website, advertorial or promotional flyer. And all too often, small and mid-sized businesses have either no written materials or shabby and poorly-written ones at best.

I’ve turned to business writing because I’ve seen the effects of poor communications and know how to help companies and proprietors communicate their messages. Whether it’s content for a new website, copy for a brochure or even articles and interviews for an internal company newsletter, I am a qualified writer that can connect you and your audience with polished and professional prose.

With almost a decade of professional writing experience, my work has appeared in such consumer publications as Nationalgeographic.com, Washington Post, Miami Herald, Dallas Morning News, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Times, Bankrate.com, Investor’s Business Daily, Times-Picayune and New Orleans City Business. I am also a member of the American Society of Business Publication Editors and a regular contributor to a number of trade and industry publications such as Stores Magazine (National Retail Federation), National Real Estate Investor, Public Works Magazine, Workforce Management, Heavy Duty Trucking, Realtor (National Association of Realtors), Hotel and Motel Management and Multichannel Merchant. Special project clients have also included AOL, Gulliver’s Travel Associates (U.K.), North Star Travel Media, HGTV and the Louisiana Office of Tourism.
