Hi. I’m Carolyn Erickson and I love helping small businesses get online.
I started out as a professional writer for both print and online publications in 2005. In 2009, I launched a local blog using the WordPress content management system. In the years following, I built a large readership by consistently writing useful, timely, shareable content, engaging with readers effectively on social media, and constantly working on and learning about search engine optimization (SEO), and WordPress web development.
As I became more proficient in these areas, other independent publishers and small business owners began seeking my advice and help. I discovered that many small businesses and one-owner companies have a great need to establish an online presence, but don’t have the budget to contract the services of an online marketing agency. I helped many people get a solid start on the Web, whether by teaching them how to do it in a PixelTime class in Wichita or being hired to do it for them.
My goal was that every client was glad they chose to work with me. I provided a wide range of digital media services for small business, including content writing, SEO, social media, email newsletters, and WordPress website support and maintenance.
Here’s a brief resumé listing some of my skills and work experience:
