Copywriting and Content
for customers of Wild Apricot
Because it's often hard to write about yourself. It's also a lot of work.
Who I am
I'm a writer and copywriter, with several years of experience using Wild Apricot,
and decades of experience writing marketing communications and articles online and in print.

"Debrief" you and your people, pulling your story together

Write editorial content (articles)
Many other ways
Although I have written for, developed and/or managed dozens of websites
(using various systems and programming languages),
I am not a full-blown Wild Apricot developer.
If you need sophisticated programming services or a Wild Apricot site built from scratch, you may want to look further.
If you like a particular Wild Apricot Partner or other developer, and they don't specialize in content creation,
I can work with them; I often work with and for web developers.
Fresh ideas, or routine administration. Or both.
If you run your site yourself and your needs tend more toward wordsmithing, conceptual development, marketing strategy, content research, article- or blog-writing,
photo aquisition and preparation, and such, I am well qualified and eager to help. As you'll see here at my own pages, I am familiar
with a wide range of consumer and business fields, and have demonstrated my ability to learn quickly. I know my way around Wild Apricot's Admin View, having served as
Corresponding Secretary and Webmaster for a Wild Apricot client for several years. So I can also help with routine or complex busywork. My
work in business-to-business and technical and financial marketing has taught me the importance of attention to detail.

Information Architecture and Usability (UX Design)
If you and/or any of your members need a fairly simple non-membership website built, that I can do. I've developed
simple sites and online stores for several of my copywriting clients. If interested, please ask for details about
various sites I've worked on.
First step is to efficiently organize your content, site design, and admin interface, making it more
usable and easier to administer.
I admit ... My own website has become extremely "bush-like," as I've added onto it
over a couple decades without subtracting much -- to the point where it's part business website, part blog,
part educational. It's not what I would create from
scratch; its content has been built up over 20 years, representing even more decades of experience.
I refer people to parts of it for specific presentations.
For now, you can see my technical proficiency and range of experience.
But enough about me. This is about you. Whatever your need, first we
should talk about your organization and your goals.
