About Me

Hello. My name is Mary Beth Eastman. I’m a freelance content writer, editor and designer.

I have a degree in journalism and 20 years of experience working as an editor and designer for daily newspapers. I’m here to help you.

How can i help you?

Writing

Do you struggle with content? Coming up with ideas, writing it without sounding stiff or boring? Writing can be hard and take up a lot of your time. Let me take that off your plate.

I write online content that is simple, clear and enjoyable to read, making even complex topics like insurance easy to understand.

I use clear, simple language that doesn’t talk down to people, but rather meets them where they are. I can provide simple charts and infographics, too. I know visuals help readers understand what they find.

I specialize in writing for the everyday consumer (B2C), so you never have to worry that my writing is too wordy or difficult to understand.

Editing

I also provide copy editing, developmental editing and proofing of your content.

  • I catch your errors.

  • I kill mistakes.

  • I write headlines that are optimized for SEO results, for sharing on social media or for standing out in print (I’ve won awards for this).

  • I can help you revise and update old content, which can help your site traffic.

I’m an idea machine, able to use keyword research and other metrics analysis to develop topic after topic of blog post ideas. Or if you need help organizing your website or structuring your content, I’m your gal.

Design

Want a designer who understands what you’re trying to say, delivers rapidly and without errors, who knows that the words are just as important as the looks? That’s me. (I’ve won awards for this, too).

As a designer, I know the content is paramount - design it what makes it sing. Not only can I write your marketing copy, but I design it, too.

Get in touch

While I’m putting the final touches on my portfolio, you can visit my resume, my LinkedIn page or contact me directly. I welcome new clients.

If you want to kick the tires, get a quote or just chat, contact me via one of the above and we can set up a time to talk.

packages and pricing

After we’ve determined what you’re looking for, I provide you with a proposal including a quote. Your project may be

  • small, with just an hourly fee or price-per-word;

  • larger, which entails per-project pricing;

  • or ongoing, which I provide for you on retainer ( a great value).

Get in touch so we can see how I can make your life easier (and your business boom-ier). Isn’t it time for an upgrade?
