Over the past two years, I have held the position of Senior Editor of PARKS & RECREATION Magazine, the membership monthly of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). (See web edition at www.parksandrecreation.org.) In that role I have written numerous features and cover stories; conducted interviews with national environmental, political, and thought leaders; created and managed the magazine's web edition; and launched the official blog of NRPA. My central areas of competency lie in research and interviewing, traditional journalism, blogging, and social media. I recently left full-time magazine work to pursue freelance work with businesses seeking to produce top-quality blogs. My current objective is to manage, curate, write, and edit blog content for a select group of small-business and corporate clients. See my LinkedIn profile (Maureen Hannan) for recommendations and full list of experience.

Chase Roberts Agency Contractor
***About Me***_______________________________________________________________ I specialize in one thing and one thing only: writing personality-packed, research-based copy that gets you results online. Currently, I work full-time at Rocket Media, a web design + internet marketing agency (http://rocketmedia.com/). Over the past few years, I've written online content for dozens of our clients in a punctual, professional manner. For what it's worth: I have a B.A in Communications and an M.B.A focused in marketing. So, yeah, I work hard. ***What I can wordsmith for you***_______________________________________________ *Website content (home page, about us page, product pages, etc) *Landing pages *Email newsletters *Blog Articles *Ebooks *Case studies *Social media contest copy *PPC and Social Ads *Transactional emails *Email automation workflows Note: If you need me to work with a team, I have experience working with web designers and developers to write copy for responsive website redesigns. ***How we'll work wonderfully together***______________________________________________ Any writer can say they're professional, so let me show you that I am by explaining the best way we can work together. (Note: Obviously this process can change depending on the work—especially for smaller projects—but it's a good starting point). *Step 1: One FREE 1-hour call* Before you commit to hiring me, we can talk in more detail about your project, including: *What your big goals are (web copy is merely the means to a larger end) *What your current problems are *What results do you want to get out of my services (dolla dolla bill, y'all!) *More about you and your target audience Hit me up on Skype to chat about these details. After the call, I'll detail a scope of work, time needed to complete the work and pricing. If we jive, then it's on to... *Step 2: Deep dive research* Feeling comfy enough to hire me? Good. All good copy is research-based copy. So at this point I'll uncover more about: *Who you—or your brand— are so that I can write in your tone of voice *Your products and services, so I can uncover their features and benefits *The specifics of your target audience, using the right tools and online research methods (how deep I go here depends on how well you know your audience and your budget) *Step 3: Create a strategy and/or needed deliverables* Once I've gather enough information, I'll create a plan of attack and/or review deliverables with you. These can include: *Target audience personas *Voice and tone guides *Email workflow overview *Editorial calendars (for articles and newsletters) This will get you and I on the same page before I write a word. *Step 4: I write; you review* Self explanatory. You'll receive a copy deck to review, and we'll hash it out cage-match style. *Step 5: Measure and adjust* If we're working together on an on-going project and I have access to analytics of any sort, I'll use what I learn from that to alter the copy or adjust how I writer for the next assignment. Step 6: You and I party and leave each other 5-star reviews. Because, in the end, we should enjoy life. :) Sound good? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
