Freelance Writer & Social Media Specialist

About Me

I create reader-friendly content that is also SEO-friendly. I believe the best SEO is content that is genuinely useful to readers. I also love social media and write content with social media optimization in mind.


I recently completed Hubspot's Inbound Marketing Certification (passing with a 92 percent score). I am a big fan of Hubspot's approach to content strategy, SEO, social media and inbound marketing. I also hold HootSuite's Social Marketing certification and CoSchedule's Marketing Strategy certification.


I blog under the nickname "Sam Sly" so most of my bylined work is under that name for consistency. 


In addition to content writing, I have experience in the following areas:

- Social media management

- Event planning and logistics

- Conflict resolution and mediation

- Not-for-profit and small business marketing

- Customer service

- Micro-social media influencer marketing
