"Kimberly helped my business grow."

Kimberly is my social media expert, my blog writer, my web consultant, my SEO consultant, a motivator, and the creator of business solutions. 

Kimberly has been a crucial member of my business team since 2020. With her coaching and consulting, I have increased my business by 50%. I earned $10k more in 2021 than 2020 because Kimberly taught me how to shift and reach more clients.

I pay nothing for advertising in print or social media. I do not have to because my SEO is strong. 

It is sweet to receive calls and emails from people who have found me just by searching. Kimberly has helped me build my brand. She will help you, too.

Your Business. Your Voice.

what I don't do

How does it work?

‘m excited to craft compelling copy that drives sales, but I can’t do it without first understanding your target audience and product offerings. Here’s what the process looks like:

  • Answer an in-depth copywriting interview and questionnaire about your business and target audience
  • Share the websites of your leading competitors
  • Provide access to your Google Analytics
  • Share your client testimonials, sales emails, meeting transcripts, and writing samples
  • Send us your web designer’s wireframes (if available)

Then, I’ll write the copy and send it to you for review, along with suggested modifications to the wireframes. Remember, a poor design and UX can hinder great copywriting from converting.

Once you provide feedback and edits, I’ll make the necessary changes and send you the final copy. For larger projects, a 60% deposit is due upon contract signing, followed by a 30% payment before receiving the first draft, and a final 10% upon project completion. For smaller or recurring projects, we kindly request a monthly retainer. Let’s work together to drive your business forward.


Common Questions

I work on an hourly rate that guarantees the best value for your investment. I offer project estimates with deliverables and estimated completion time. My rates and production times are on par with industry standards for high-quality copywriting.


Book my time at the start of the month with a retainer to ensure priority attention. You can use the retainer for a variety of services such as website copy, emails, graphic design, and coaching sessions. Unused hours exceeding one hour carry over to the next month, providing even more value for your investment.

Before crafting your website copy, I conduct a thorough copywriting interview and branded SEO strategy session. This helps me understand your business and your target audience.

Once we have gathered all the necessary information, I begin writing the website copy. It typically takes around 2-3 hours per page to deliver engaging and conversion-focused content.

If you want to maximize your website’s potential to rank higher on search engines, I can also add SEO touches that will enhance its optimization. This involves an additional 20 minutes per page, but it’s worth the investment in the long run.


No. But I can help you find grants and capital to pay for our services. 

I frequently see entrepreneurs trying to bootstrap their businesses. The truth is that most of the time these business fail because the owners don’t want to seek help raising capital to pay for marketing. 

Hard truth: Marketing should compromise 25-percent or more of your annual budget. For large businesses, their marketing budgets are often 50-percent. 

Your local business community is on your side and waiting for you to tap into their resources. I can help you locate them.

Absolutely! I offer two types of editing services that can help improve your current content and boost your brand’s presence:

  • Developmental editing: This service includes a comprehensive report that outlines the strengths and weaknesses of your content, along with actionable recommendations to improve it. I’ll also identify opportunities to optimize your content for SEO, making sure your brand gets the visibility it deserves.
  • Line editing: If you love your content but want to make it even better, this service is for you. I’ll go through each sentence of your content, making changes that provide consistency across your brand, increase conversion rates, and improve readability.

While I don’t personally offer proofreading services, I have a vast network of contacts in the editing industry. I’ll be happy to find the best proofreader for your industry and contract them for you at a small fee.

With my expertise and industry connections, you can trust that your content will be polished and optimized for success.


I start the process by truly understanding your brand and how you communicate your product or service. Through our meetings, I carefully listen to your unique speaking style and repetition of words to capture your voice accurately.

I transcribe our meetings and use the information to create word clouds, ensuring I have reliable data to craft your Branded Voice. The next step is to develop your Branded Style Guide, which outlines key phrases to use and avoid, grammar rules, and even boilerplate copy.

This guide serves as a secret marketing weapon for your brand, as it provides a consistent voice across all written content and directs your team on how to write for your brand. Additionally, it includes guidelines for implementing your branded SEO strategy.
