CASE STUDY: RELEVANT, ONGOING LONG-FORM CONTENT

Airbrake.io provides industry-leading error monitoring software for many of the world’s best engineering teams.  Over the course of our 14-months working together I created and published 5+ articles per week for the Airbrake.io blog.  In total, around 600,000 words spread across more than 300 articles were published for Airbrake.io, ranging in topic from language-specific error deep dives and design pattern tutorials in C# to DevOps best practices guides and even fun little JavaScript projects to celebrate recent holidays!

This focus on long-form, high quality articles which also emphasized search engine optimization provided a massive boost to Airbrake’s traffic.  Total monthly views increased by more than 700% over this 14-month period, while compound monthly growth was 16% throughout.  After a short time working together Airbrake tasked me with performing the basic process of publishing content onto their public site.  Once I began handling publication and search engine optimization — which ensured a timely and structured rate of publication — site traffic maintained a compound monthly growth rate of 21%.  While all this content was created and published in a ghostwriting capacity, feel free to look through the entire GitHub repository where all my works were privately housed and which Airbrake has graciously allowed me to make public.

CASE STUDY: A MULTITUDE OF DATA TECHNOLOGIES

Chartio was built with an innovative spirit and lofty objective: improve human potential by democratizing access to data and enhancing everyone’s ability to explore and understand data in practical and impactful ways.  Chartio empowers data analysts, executives, and teams to perform cloud-based data exploration through beautiful charts and interactive dashboards.

Over the course of 6 months Chartio tasked me with writing a number of tutorials focused on database management, queries, and best practices.  Chartio was looking to improve traffic and brand awareness in a wide range of topics, which offered me a chance to write and code within many different technologies, as seen in just a few examples below:

How to UNION Queries in Google BigQuery
How to Define an Auto Increment Primary Key in PostgreSQL
How to Write to a CSV File Using Oracle SQL*Plus
How to Resize an SVG When the Window is Resized in d3.js

As a result of working together Chartio was able to create a robust collection of dozens of tutorials, which has served as yet another way they’re reaching their goals of improving human potential by democratizing access to data.

CASE STUDY: A VARIETY OF FORMAT TYPES

Coding Dojo is one of the premier coding bootcamps found in the greater United States, with more than 7 campuses from coast to coast and over 3,000 successful alumni.  Coding Dojo was looking to improve awareness of not just their brand, but of the growing need for coding bootcamps, as the potential career opportunities after getting into coding continue to rise.

Coding Dojo tasked me with creating a series of articles and eGuides for publication on their site, the most extensive of which was the 30-page “How to Bootstrap Your Career in Web Development” eBook, which has been downloaded in its original PDF format nearly 90,000 times to date.  This project gave me the opportunity to not only brainstorm, outline, and write the entirety of the six chapter eBook, but to also design and create custom diagrams, charts, and other images necessary to produce a visually appealing PDF that Coding Dojo would be proud to show to potential customers.  The final eBook was submitted in multiple formats, making it relatively easy for Coding Dojo to post each chapter in a web-friendly, digital format.

  • Free Source Code

    Naturally, many technical articles require code samples as part of the tutorial or to illustrate the topic at hand.  All included source code is written and tested in my own local development environment before publication.  There is no extra charge for included source code in an article and such code is merely tallied in the overall word count.

  • Licensed Images

    When requested, I will include royalty-free (or appropriately licensed) images within each article.  As a client, you may request specific images or types of images.  Additionally, while my design sense is far from stellar, I am comfortable enough with Photoshop and Illustrator to create custom images if required.  The creation and/or sourcing of images will be subject to an hourly rate fee.

  • SEO Content

    Depending on your needs, I will create content that is fully search engine optimized to deliver better traffic, performance, and user engagement.  For example, a typical article will include one or more SEO keywords, a meta description, a page slug, and an SEO title, all of which can easily be entered into most CMSs or publication software.

  • Project Management

    As a client you’ll have access to a free, private, invite-only project management repository hosted on Asana.  All ongoing content will be posted there to allow for you — and any other team members you desire — to view, collaborate, and discuss ongoing projects or recent publications.  You’ll be instantly notified the moment a new article is ready to be reviewed, while also being able to access all previously-generated content.  This tool will act as a central, collaborative location where our ongoing work will reside.

TECHNOLOGIES & PLATFORMS I’VE WORKED WITH

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS

Guaranteed Deadlines

Once a project is set in stone and a deadline is agreed upon, I will ensure the project stays on track and is completed and sent to you prior to that deadline.

Ghostwriting

If you are seeking a ghostwriter to create stellar content that can then be attributed to you or another thought leader in your company, I have completed hundreds of ghostwriting projects in the past and would love to help you as well.

SEO Consulting

Even an exceptionally well-written piece may be ignored or forgotten without proper marketing.  In addition to creating pieces that meet modern SEO standards, I also offer consultation services to ensure your article and/or website will rank highly on Google and other search engines.

Personal Communication

Frequent and thorough communication is a necessity for a successful project, so I will always be available via email or private message.

Repeated Projects

Many clients are not looking for just a one-off project, but instead are in need of a constant flow of content to publish to a blog or social media source on a regular basis.  I am often available and willing to set aside enough time in the week or month to focus on repeated projects to ensure your company’s content stream never dries up.

Competitive Rates

While finding a writer through a large writing farm service is not too difficult, as the client you’ll invariably pay the extra overhead that the middleman farm service takes, which is typically 25-30% off the top.  By working directly with an experienced writer like myself, you’ll save money and have a direct line of communication to the creator.

Project Types

  • Articles
  • Blog Posts
  • Copywriting (Advertisement/Marketing)
  • Direct Mail/Email
  • E-books
  • Essays
  • Press Releases
  • Product Descriptions
  • Social Media Posts
  • Tutorials
  • White Papers

Batch Orders

If you are in need of a large volume of written pieces, a batch order for multiple similar projects might be just the ticket.

Shape the Piece to Your Needs

Every client has different needs and, therefore, each completed project should adjust to those needs as required.  My writing aims to match the appropriate tonetarget demographic, and narrative voice that your project requires.
