Does the thought of creating content for your business make you want to hide under the bed crying into a pint of ice cream, while Adele sings in the background? Oh, just me?

maybe Creating content makes
you say...WTF!  

sad
  • Should I be doing this or this or that? Or all of it? 
  • Is my writing voice strong enough?
  • Does anyone care?
  • Is creating content supposed to feel like WTF!?  
  • WTF is a content strategy? And why do I need one?
  • Am I wasting my time?

Good news. You don't have to say WTF to your content anymore! You don't have to hide under the bed with your Edy's French Silk Ice Cream, while sing-crying to "Careless Whisper"! (That was a little too specific to be fictional.)

Let's be real. All you want is someone to tell you what to do so your content isn't a hot mess...to help you plan and create strategic content. 

You want someone to Un-WTF Your Content

It doesn't have to be fancy, or complicated, or beyond your reach. You can do this. Yes, you. Step away from the ice cream and press pause on the pity party.

Even established content creators get awesome results from
working with me

"Melanie's suggestions helped me repurpose and revive older content, and it gave me an outside perspective on my strengths and weaknesses. She offered concrete, simple action steps I could take to improve each blog post.

I love that I have a punch list of techniques to try, and I feel like I understand exactly what I should do next.

I already have so much clarity, thanks to this process, on how to improve my product sales pages to reach my audience better, and a long list of blog posts that will help me attract my ideal reader."

Just Right and Not Even Close

I want this to work for you, but I know it
won't work for everyone. 

Who's a good fit for Un-WTF?

just right
  • You're a busy entrepreneur who knows there's long-term value in your content. 
  • You have a million content ideas but don't know how to choose.
  • You need to clarify your ideal audience and how your content serves them. 
  • You're starting to hate your blog because creating one post takes FOREVER.
  • You've tried every content calendar and planning freebie out there, and you're still not creating strategic, consistent content.

On the other hand, it's probably not a good fit for you right now if:

wrong choice
  • You've never said, thought, or typed WTF and are offended by it.
  • You don't care what your readers want.
  • You don't think content should be strategic. (Gasp.)
  • You've never cried into a pint of ice cream. (Hard pass.)

All the free downloads in the world can't replace 90 minutes with a content expert.
Tired of wasting your time? Cut the BS and sign up already!

sometimes you're too close to your content to see the big picture.

"Working with Melanie on my content helped me in ways I couldn't have planned for or foreseen. Not only is she amazing with helping you see your overall content picture, she can help get all those content details nailed down. 

I was blown away by the content inventory she provided me. It was like a little health checkup for my blogging content. It helped me identify the gaps in my content, and she helped me through her Content GPS to fix the issues and strengthen my content going forward."

FAQ

What if i don't like you?

Well, that's not very nice. But it's not possible to be liked by everyone. How about we start with a free 20-minute intro call? If we don't mesh, we'll call it quits right then and there.

can i get a refund?

Due to the nature of our work together, I won't give refunds after the fact. However, if something tragic happens in your life and you need to postpone or cancel our time together, let me know and we'll work it out.

why are you an expert?

I've been working in content creation for 17+ years. (Yes, I'm that old.) I earned a BA in Journalism and I'm 3 credits shy of an MS in Organizational Communication. It's what I do (well).

can't i just google it?

Sure. You can probably Google strategic content plan and content calendar. (You can DIY almost anything these days. Please, no DIY surgery. Ever.) But you can't Google a content expert to walk you through the process step-by-step. Only you can decide if you need a real person to help you, and if I'm the right person to work with you.
