Engaging Content

Helping companies create marketing content and lead generation pieces to engage clients.

When you know your prospects and address their pain with your content, you begin a conversation.

When their problem clouds their ability to see a solution, and they are blind with frustration, it takes extraordinary insight to engage them.

When you give words to their frustrations they know you understand them. Identifying their pain provides you access to a motivating moment.

Giving understanding and encouragement at the right time positions you for consideration.

Showcasing solutions you provided your clients allows anyone with those same problems hope for a similar outcome. Rather than claiming your own worth, sharing your clients’ successes elevates you as the best choice.

Knowing which stories to share when comes from my 20 years of experience in direct sales, 12 years as an owner/operator and over 10 years as a marketing strategist and copywriter.

I'm Karen Post, freelance copywriter.

My process starts with identifying your goals combined with a clear understanding of your client, so your content engages them from the start. I also identify where in the customer journey the copy will be used so it motivates them to take the next action.

Bio


Bio
Another business luncheon and the stereotypical rubber chicken meal. Staring down at my plate, I felt sadness wash over me.  

The Chamber of Commerce luncheon honored finalist for Business of the Year. Our hearing aid office earned one of the 18 finalists’ slots for Small Business.

We were here to celebrate our success yet my thoughts were tumbling. I realized this part of my life was ending. It was time to restructure my position in the business and move on.

The Chamber President’s voice interrupted my thoughts. He asked each finalist to stand. Then announced the winner for Small Business.

As we approached the podium to accept the honor, my heart was breaking.

We started the business back in 2007. He had been in the hearing industry for eight years by then. He had the skills and I had the business ability including marketing and processes.

During those 12 years, I refined our marketing message. As the marketing strategist, I wrote all the copy; advertorials, speeches, website, blogs, printed monthly newsletter, articles for newspapers, direct mailers and all internal documents.

Four years ago, I created an annual calendar and tweaked it, so it runs on autopilot.

A few months before the Chamber’s luncheon, I took an in-depth copywriting course, just to engage me.

During this course I learned how I could share my skills and talents with other companies. Prior to this course, it never occurred to me that my knowledge and skills could become my own business.

Becoming a marketing consultant to our staff at the hearing aid office prepared me for working with other companies. This enabled me to refine the process I developed over the years that benefited the hearing aid office.

Launching my copywriting business challenged me to step into my best self.

In a way, it seems I spent those 12 years interning for my copywriting business.

 “... developed materials that encouraged people to participate…” Karen does a wonderful job of organizing ideas and developing materials that help people get on board. I was working with a team that was attempting to organize people in the church to split into multiple teams and serve at multiple sites. We had a good idea, but needed help to get it off the ground. Karen created print materials that clearly explained the idea and encouraged people to participate. She was helping in creating a timeline for the organization of the event and its promotion. Karen was key to the events success!"

 “... brings humor and lightness to the working environment…” Having worked with Karen over the past years on a variety of projects, I’ve watched her stay focused on the goal and how to achieve it without creating angst. She has an innate ability to see the vision and narrow it down to the next logical step. It is impressive to see the project unfold in a timely and professional manor. She brings humor and a lightness to the working environment that makes the most difficult task a pleasure, and completes it with precision, no matter how difficult the task at hand is. Karen can also make any personality type feel comfortable and she brings out the best in the individuals she is working with. I highly recommend working with Karen if you want the job done well!"
