Sometimes the marketing team itself brings me in to meet with owners and managers. I review and give feedback on what the team is working on and often act as the neutral third party when owners are hesitant to try a new strategy or make an investment in technology.
I can help the company set the strategy, build a team, evaluate and hire trustworthy contractors, get trained, and keep the momentum going.
I enjoy working in concert with other consultants who specialize in web development, social media, search engine optimization, and digital advertising. I can provide the print industry expertise when it's needed as well as the digital marketing overview that brings the elements into alignment.
What if one simple writing assignment could change you - or your kids - life?
This is an interesting and important read.

Our readers were printing professionals who needed to be aware of technology changes and trends. I created an editorial stylebook to streamline submissions by guest columnists. I shortened our production cycle from 10 days to 3 days. When I was promoted to Publisher, I was already in the process of transitioning the magazine from a manually pasted up product to a fully digital workflow. Digital features included FTP site, softproofing, collaborative workflow for offsite team members and customers, website and e-publication versioning, and more.
