Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)  When that’s the unfortunate scenario, don’t despair. You CAN be a...

He approached me about writing a guest post for BGB, and when he offered this particular topic, I thought it a great fit and so immediately agreed. I’ve been struggling a bit myself in the creativity department, not really from lack of ideas, but lack of motivation. However...

Writing as a Career- Are You Feeling the Creative Seduction?

W

This is a guest post from Chris Hoole. I have to agree, going pro as a writer is pretty daft. It’s not easy, it’s not always fun, and sometimes you wonder if you’re in the right line of work. However as he mentions, for many writers it’s not always a matter of choice… it’s almost a compulsion! Kind of like diarrhea of the fingers or something. Words.  Must...

So it’s important to keep that in mind when going into business for yourself. * You are responsible for the world’s perception of you and your services. * You are responsible for marketing yourself and creating a name for yourself. * You are responsible for following-up on leads...

Since revamping my website with revitalized copy and search engine optimization, my client load has more than doubled. What has really surprised me is the number of people who come to my office saying that the copy on my website is what got them to call me.

People feel like they get a real sense of me before coming to meet me. This is amazing and means so much in a field often clouded with fear of the unknown. Cori was fantastic to work with in that she went above and beyond to really get what I needed my copy to say and HOW. I think it required a lot of patience on her part and I am so thankful I trusted her to help! Thanks Big Girl Branding!!
