WHY ANNALIESE HENWOOD?

Annaliese Henwood headshotHello, and welcome to my website!

I’m Annaliese, a marketing content creator and overall digital marketing professional. For over 7 years, I’ve committed my career to writing content for businesses and nonprofits. Most of my experience is with B2Bs and SaaS companies, but my skills are flexible for any industry.

The companies I’ve assisted so far are:

  • Stuzo – an app development company
  • Virtual Forge – a cyber security company
  • The Wehrman Collaborative – a website accessibility company

While with these companies, I’ve enhanced my skills in the following areas:

  • Content marketing, including blogging, white papers, brochures, case studies, strategies, calendars
  • Email marketing, using HubSpot, MailChimp, Vertical Response, and Constant Contact
  • Advertising, using Google AdWords, Facebook, and Twitter
  • Social media marketing, using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube; including daily content activity, real-time engagement, and strategy development

If you are looking to hire someone for a digital marketing role, primarily a content writer, you’re in the right place. I’m available for full-time, remote work at a business in any industry. While I prefer full-time, permanent placement in a remote setting, I’m still open to other opportunities in Philadelphia, PA.

Contact me when you’re ready to see your digital marketing efforts succeed.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Why are all your career placements so short in duration?

I think it’s easiest to answer this question by going over each placement individually. Each departure has its own reasons and outcomes.

I left the Wehrman Collaborative because it was initially an internship position. After 3 months, the company was to decide whether to make the role a full-time, paid role. I stayed with the company for 4 months, but I ultimately chose to end the unpaid internship in search of a new career opportunity.

I left Virtual Forge because I sought a role that better fit my skills and career goals. My role at Virtual Forge became too administrative, and I wasn’t doing what my job description originally stated. I found a more relevant opportunity with Stuzo and left Virtual Forge.

I left Stuzo because the CEO took over the marketing department from my supervisor. He wanted to hire his own team to handle marketing tasks, so he let me go without warning. I then decided to give freelance writing a try and have been doing that ever since.

The key point here is: I don’t want to be a short-term employee.

My ideal career placement is one where I stay long-term or at least until I’ve made a proper impact. Any company with a low turnover rate fits with my placement expectations.

Do you have work samples you can share from past employments?

Although some documents are strictly private to the company, I can share a few examples with permission. Please note that these samples are for review with the purpose of proving skill and experience. They are not for sale, and plagiarism is prohibited by law.

With my freelance work, I created 4 digital books, which are available elsewhere on this website. However, you can get a free copy of my blogging book without form submission through this direct download link.

With Stuzo, I created a white paper about mobile app RFPs. It’s hidden behind a landing page form, but I can give you a copy now that the page is deactivated. You can get a copy without form submission through this direct viewing link.

With Virtual Forge, I created a case study for one of the company’s clients: the U.S. Department of Defense. It is available to you for viewing through this direct link.

While with the Wehrman Collaborative, I wrote 3 press releases. One of them was about eBook accessibility – the most effective one of the three. You can view the press release on the Cision (PRWeb) website.

When are you available to start in a new role?

As of June 2018, I am available to start within 2 weeks. I request at least 1 week to transition from freelance to the new role, including informing freelance clients of my departure. I do not have any other barriers to getting started.

What are your salary expectations?

It depends on the role, but here are some basic and flexible options.

  • As a content marketing manager, I request at least $60,000 annual salary.
  • As a multifaceted marketing manager (someone wearing many hats), I request at least $65,000 annual salary.
  • As an associate level marketing professional, I request at least $55,000 annual salary.

Again, these numbers are just examples and are not set in stone. They can be adjusted based on location, industry, company size, and other factors. Please do not hesitate to speak with me on this matter if you’re concerned.
