SEO Content for Humans

Today's most effective marketing copy goes beyond catchphrases. Web content needs to communicate not only to the human reader, but to search engines as well.

(e.g.) creative content makes data-driven decisions to create compelling, unique copy that drives organic growth and conversions.

about

Let's Work Together.

I more or less fell into the world of SEO writing over ten years ago when, setting aside my initial aspirations to be a Serious Journalist (bills, you know?), I found myself at an eCommerce company. Before long I found that I really liked SEO writing — it involved many of the things I liked about journalism (research! facts! digging!) and none of the stuff I didn't (interviews).

Put Your Words to Work

If you've found yourself conflicted by knowing you need SEO content, but feel it's too robotic, you aren't alone. Despite what a lot of online examples would have you believe, it is absolutely possible to have eloquent SEO content that's written for people...while still doing all the good technical stuff behind the scenes.

Over the past 11 years, I've developed an SEO-friendly style that passes data to search engines but reads like an engaging, informational article that your visitors will actually enjoy.

Benefits of Custom SEO Content


Rank

Finding just the right keywords — in a sweet spot between demand and competition — is essential for creating well-ranking content. We'll find and turn this data into clickable results.


Compete

Content gap assessment identifies topics with a search demand that are not addressed well (or at all) by competitors. By finding these gaps, we can target opportunities for valuable backlinks and high SERP rankings.


Inform

The best SEO content does double duty. While it communicates with search engines, it also informs and engages website visitors. Build brand value and trust with content written for people, not computers.


Convert

Whether the goal is to sell a software product, get new client accounts, or generate leads, SEO content works. We'll blend data and persuasive language to boost traffic and inspire conversions.

The Pillar + Cluster Content Package

The Pillar + Cluster package uses a proven SEO content model where a core, comprehensive article (the Pillar) is supported by a cluster of three additional articles that go in deep detail on related topics. By focusing on a different topic cluster every month, you can build authority content about all areas of your business, and build valuable linking connections to aid your SEO + rank.

This service is for MarTech SaaS brands and creative consultants who want a library of authoritative, informational content they're proud to link to — but just don't have the time to do it themselves. Every aspect of the content creation process is handled for you, from initial concept to research and writing.

over 10 years b2b seo content experience

Hi, I'm Emily.

The world of search has gone through countless changes since I started writing SEO content in 2010. One constant, however, is a continual push toward promoting and rewarding websites that use real, natural language — not lists of keywords that don't provide value to a human reader.

I love telling a story...but I hate writing fiction. So what I want to do is tell your company's story — or help you tell it yourself. Your website content is the perfect place to express what you and your business are all about, and we can do it in a way that targets the people who want to hear from you most.

Frequently Asked Questions

who do you work with?

I work with marketing tech SaaS brands and creative consultants. My clients include independent web designers, email marketers, digital marketing agencies, membership software platforms, digital asset management companies and more. Check out my portfolio and see if it looks like a good fit for you! Not sure? Drop me a line and we'll chat about it!

does my business need SEO content?

If you or your client have a website, yes. SEO content is the most effective way to develop long term, sustainable growth. Whether the website is geared toward a digital product, subscription, or service, SEO content writing will be highly beneficial for overall traffic and business revenue.

Where do you get your seo and keyword data?

I am happy to work with data provided by your agency or incorporate SEO research into any package. My research may include several information sources, including industry-leading SEO tools. My favorites are Ahrefs and Screaming Frog.

Do you write emails, landing pages, and social media content too?

At this time, I currently only offer long form SEO content writing and technical auditing services. By focusing my work in these two areas, I can provide a more comprehensive service to deliver maximum results.

why do your packages require a minimum 6 month commitment?

SEO is a slower-growing yet sustainable method of digital marketing. As such, it takes about 6 months to gather initial results when starting from scratch. This time frame allows us to gather data that is useful for future strategizing!
