Jessica Ashley will help you take control of your content

Ready to breathe new life into the content on your blog, on your brand site, in your newsletter, across social networks? To produce smarter, better content that sticks to your true voice?

Do you have big ideas or maybe even bigger projects in the works?

Does your site reflect how fabulous you are? Or is it outdated or limping along? And are you stuck, bored, disorganized or overwhelmed?

Let's turn that around. Together.


As a seasoned, high-level editor with experience at some of the largest, most influential women’s lifestyle sites (more details on that below), I will empower you to run your blog in a more systematic, creative, resourceful way. 

I will be your personal content strategist, and together, we will make your words, images and videos go from good (but haphazard) to fabulous (and clickable). I will show you how to claim your spot as the editor-in-chief of your blog and I can take over the site for your brand.

I am a seasoned, savvy, straightforward content strategist with tons of editorial experience at sites you love and loyally read. I am a blogger from way back with many credentials and I've built a career, from broadcast newsrooms to academia to nonprofit fundraising to professional blogging and editing, on making big ideas, simple concepts and great stories shine in words and videos.  

I will apply the techniques, tricks and strategy I developed as an editor at major women's lifestyle sites and in nurturing smaller sites to your site. I tallied more than 30 million pageviews and 40,000 comments and led channels to the top of ComScore charts in a matter of months. I successfully developed campaign pitches to big brands. And I studied SEO techniques and research with some of the best in the field. I recruited bloggers, built writing staffs and nurtured communities. I believe that great content will always win and I want you to feel that confident in the posts, videos and social engagement of your site, too. I will share my secrets and insights to help you create posts that light up you, your readers and brands you want to work with -- and keep it organized, assigned, on schedule and shining.
