Making Words Work: A Practical Guide to Writing Powerful Content

Words are the foundation of everything online.

I wrote Making Words Work to help folks who need to write purposeful things online, including copywriters, content writers, marketers, and business owners. It's filled with helpful advice and do-able strategies to help you write better and faster, grab the attention of your readers, and most of all, enjoy the process of writing.

Powerful content is how you build a solid foundation in an online world.

We've been working with government agencies, nonprofits, and social enterprises for more than twenty years. This is our niche.

We know that organizations like yours are unicorns. Your mission, your people, and the services you provide are unique, and so are your content challenges. That’s why we don’t offer templates, packages, or cookie-cutter solutions.

Instead, we start by listening and learning. We figure out what you like and dislike about your existing content, what your internal capabilities are, and what you need help with. Then, when we really understand who you are and what you want to accomplish, we work with you to make it happen.

Powerful content lets you:

  • Establish authority and build trust
  • Create a strong online presence
  • Communicate and educate effectively
  • Promote your mission, your values, and your programs

We make sure your content is strong, impactful, and capable of doing the heavy lifting.

Content Reviews and Recommendations

Are you confident that everything you put online is a positive reflection of your organization? Is it inclusive? Helpful? Impactful?

You ARE your content. To establish authority, build trust, and achieve your goals, you need content that’s powerful, purposeful, and respectful to all. We take a holistic, objective look at what you have now, identify your strengths and challenges, and provide you with a practical action plan to move forward.

Content Consulting

Imagine having a trusted advisor with 20+ years of experience helping you build authority online. Think about how much faster and easier things would come together.

Content expertise is worth out-sourcing. Fresh eyes. New perspectives. A depth of knowledge you may not have in-house.

And you can create a custom consulting plan that includes strategy calls, support for key staff, content marketing training, and even project management.
