Storyteller/Journalist: Copywriting, Blogging, Interviewing, Video Scripting, Content Planning
Marketing and Advertising | Greater St. Louis Area, US
Who I Am:
I'm an award-winning wordsmith, producer and content planner with more than 15 years of experience in journalism, copywriting, video production, branding, digital media and more. Blah, blah, blah.
Bottom line: I make things pretty with words and glue stuff together with common sense. Go see some stuff: allisonbabka.com.
Things I've Made Pretty:
* Advertising/marketing copy & brand stewardship

* Newspaper/magazine/blog articles

* Content plans
* Video/audio campaigns and scripts
* Pre-production logistics
* Entertainment reviews
* SEO copywriting and ghostblogging
* Social media content
* Marketing/crisis talking points
* Leadership communications
* Focus group discussion guides/results analysis
* News releases
What I'm Doing Now (and What I Can Do for You):
I'm working with agencies and individual clients on a freelance/contract basis. Most of my projects focus on copywriting, blogging or video production/planning, but I'm also hired for general content planning, social media management and editing.
My love: combining words, video and general content into a cohesive story. My marketing background gives me big-picture eyes and traditional know-how, my news nose pushes me to dig deep during interviews and my producer hat forces me to consider minute details. The result? Compelling stories that fit into a lovely editorial calendar and move across channels.
Ultimate goal: make the world pretty by telling some neato stories.
Why I'm Even More Awesome:
I'm excellent at brand consistency, video shoot logistics, proofing/editing and pulling emotional soundbytes from otherwise aloof interview subjects. I'm more than just a girl with a bloody red pen, though; I'm also a kick-ass karaoke DJ with a penchant for singing U2, Miley Cyrus and the theme from "The Brady Bunch." Valuable skills, I swear.
