You Need Compelling Content
After working for more than 10 years as a writer and editor in the personal finance niche, I have seen my fair share of content that makes your eyes glaze over.
It takes time and expertise to research, outline, produce, and edit financial content that can rank in Google and remain helpful to everyday readers who want to reach their financial goals. Thankfully, this is exactly what I do.
Some of My Clients Include
Every article is different, but the goal is the same: Help readers understand complex topics so they can manage their own finances and get ahead.
Making sure readers get to a client site is also a top priority. As I craft or edit a piece of content, I keep SEO best practices in mind so I can help drive traffic and therefore client revenue.
Kim Porter is one of the most diligent writers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her stories are always delivered on time, well written, and include everything asked for in the assignment. Kim also does a great job of going the extra mile to include extra information or a new perspective that will help readers that editors may have missed.
Additionally, Kim is very easy to work with. She responds to emails quickly, is proactive in seeking necessary clarification, and is exceptionally receptive to feedback. She's also just a delight of a human being. If you're thinking about hiring Kim, stop considering and just do it.

What Working With Me Looks Like
I allow my curiosity to drive what I do, which means I'm genuinely interested in every article I write.
When I get an assignment, I reach out to my network of experts and set up interviews to learn more about the topic.
I write the article using the brief as a checklist, making sure all the topics are covered and keywords are used.
Most importantly I enjoy the process of writing and putting all the research together into one cohesive story.
What I Do Best
I'm gifted at interviewing people and asking all the right questions, then taking that information and telling a story. Along the way, I let my curiosity drive what I research and write. And when the tone of the article calls for it, I can thread pieces of wit or humor into my writing.
Kim is a rockstar! We've been working together for about two years now and she's been my go-to copyeditor from the start.
Her copy-editing and writing skills, organization and communication skills, and her friendly demeanor make working with her a joy. And, she always lets me know when she's visiting NYC so we can get together for a coffee. I highly recommend Kim as a copyeditor and writer.
