KMS does not offer copywriting for your website pages. Page content must be supplied by the client. However, for those clients who would like some help writing content for their website pages, please consider contacting someone from the resource list below. If errors are found, please notify me.
For small businesses just starting out, it can be difficult to wrap your head around additional expenditures like copy-writing. However, I highly recommend talking to a copywriter to at least write one or two of your ‘Cornerstone’ pages (main pages like your Home page, and Services page). They can set the tone; and it makes it much easier for you to follow along for the other pages within a website.
Hi, I’m Lisa Stambaugh. I’ve always loved writing — yes, even high school English papers — and thought it was my dream job. However, counselors suggested pursuing a more lucrative tech career, saying “you’re pretty good at math for a girl.” Engineering and Computer Science it was, then.
Fast-forward to the mid-90’s: managing an IT department, websites arrived on the scene. As the lone female web designer surrounded by male “Webmasters,” I laughingly called myself The Web Diva® and it stuck with me. After exiting the IT world, freelance web work was my next step. Frustration quickly stemmed from clients unable to deliver their essential website content — especially About pages.
I developed content for hundreds of my web clients, then branched out to serve folks hiring other (non-writing) web pros. After 23+ years building 700+ websites, I retired from web design to focus fully on my writing work.
Has writing got you flustered?
- Does writing seem like a daunting, difficult, and dreaded task; too overwhelming to start?
- Are you confused about what belongs where, and how to make it all consistent?
- Does modesty prevent you from highlighting your skills, concerned you’ll sound “braggy”?

“Anna Bradshaw is a freelance copywriter specializing in website copy and blogging for creative small businesses. She loves marketing strategy so much, that it’s not just her job, it’s her hobby too. You’ll likely catch her spending her weekends with a book in hand, and a notebook open beside her.
She loves seeing the confidence that well-crafted copy brings to busy entrepreneurs – accomplished business people who are selling quality products and services, but who don’t have time or interest in writing. Facilitating that time-saving, confidence-boosting transformation is her favorite part of copywriting.
Anna believes that clarity always beats cleverness in writing, and the best copy is honest copy. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for personality and lots of flavor. Speaking of flavor, she also believes in taking plenty of ice cream breaks.
She shares copywriting and small business marketing insights on her blog, and has also guest-blogged for Create & Cultivate, a women’s empowerment website.” email@example.com
