WHAT'S YOUR STORY? Every person, every brand, has a story. Where you came from, how you started out, what you're working on right at this second, what you're planning for in the future, what inspires you, what keeps you going: those are all part of your story, part of your journey. How your business is presented online plays a key role in that story. Do your customers understand who you are and what you do? Are your customers finding you? Are your customers getting what they're looking for? Are your customers excited? Are your customers coming back for more? A good story inspires emotional engagement. It can give people the information that they want, that they crave, and the things they didn't even know they needed. A good story connects. Words are the cornerstone to any story, but how those words are presented also matters. Copy across platforms goes hand in hand with design towards delivering your story to the world in a consistent, driven, powerful way. So...what is your story? And how do you want to tell it? WHAT'S MY STORY? My name is Valerie, and I tell stories. As a child I would carry around notebooks and fill page after page with tall tales of stuffed bunnies come to life and mythical elves causing mischief. As a teenager, my words switched to love poems. Cringe-worthy love poems that, at the time, seemed like the most important, soul-filled words in the world. In undergrad my stories were fiction, but, really, thinly veiled stories of my life. And, in grad school, personal essays, when I realized I didn’t have to hide my life story behind fictional characters. Today, I channel those stories into blogging, copywriting, and digital design: combining words with photos and images and layout to craft narratives. I tell stories. And, with over a decade of experience in content marketing, content management, web design, and blogging, I can help you tell yours.
