This B2B Writer Takes the Show on the Road
For AWAI member Shawn Dady, the flexibility and freedom from a typical nine-to-five work schedule are the biggest perks of the writer’s life
Working from home … or on the road … helps her stay involved in her son’s acting career. They travel regularly between Tennessee and Los Angeles, and she keeps busy all the while.
Over the last couple of years, she’s had a variety of clients, including many in her chosen niche of B2B; she specializes in writing about software.
“I have written articles for RagTag Research Geeks, promoted many small businesses in Tennessee via email marketing, and have designed and built WordPress websites for several different companies. I wrote most of the copy on those websites as well,” says Shawn. “Having been a Network Administrator for several years for medium- to enterprise-level companies, I now work as a software copywriter in the lead gen space.”
She recently landed a great gig writing B2B articles for eCommerce Insiders, an online publishing company that caters to those who provide services to online retailers. It was a connection she made at AWAI’s 2013 Bootcamp that helped her land the job. There she met a fellow copywriter. They kept in touch over time through social media, and when that writer was hired full-time by eCommerce Insiders, she brought Shawn on board as a freelancer.
“It feels fantastic!” says Shawn. “I’m in the process of writing articles right now.”
Of course, this ambitious B2B writer is still looking to the future. Says Shawn:
“Ultimately I would like to write copy for major software publishers like Citrix, IBM, Apple, WordPress, Intuit, Adobe and others. These are the clients I will be approaching in the future. Bring it on.”
Great work, Shawn. Keep at it.
