About Website Wordsmith – Carolyn Kohler, SEO Writer

I am thrilled when my clients achieve more success as a result of our work together. As an SEO writer, I specialize in helping business professionals attract their ideal customers through their websites. When I write about my clients, I learn all about why they love doing what they do and what makes them really good at it. I help them convey their unique story to the world.

Whether you need great website content, a blog post, a persuasive white paper, or any other type of written communication, I can be your voice. My expertise as a SEO specialist helps get your website listed higher in search engine results in Google and Bing.

I have worked with hundreds of professionals and business owners, from attorneys and therapists, to contractors and computer forensics firms. My clients tell me they appreciate my sound marketing advice, ability to simplify complex information, and talent for communicating what makes them truly exceptional.

SEO Writer with a Business Focus

I grew up on a dairy farm in a small Ohio town that had more cows than people. I soon realized that milking cows was not going to be my future! My family moved off the farm when I was in high school, and my Mom opened an organic grocery store in our garage. That was long before most people knew what organic food was, let alone its benefits. I often wonder how much easier it might have been if the Internet had been around then, and she was able to get the word out about her store. That’s why I am so passionate about helping my clients “get the word out” about what they offer.

I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to go to college, and I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. Later, I earned a Masters in Business Administration. I honed my writing skills while working at several San Francisco-based corporations, including McKesson, Levi Strauss and Charles Schwab. I managed large-scale information technology projects, and I often found myself in the role of translating what my business partners wanted to my technical team members and, in turn, explaining highly technical concepts in layperson’s terms. I often find myself using that same skill today, as I convey what my clients do to their online audience.

In 2005, I decided to start my website writing company, Website Wordsmith, to use my writing and project management skills to benefit small business owners. What I especially love about what I do is helping my clients communicate to the world what makes them truly exceptional.

A Love for the Outdoors!

I currently live in Mill Valley with my husband, Tom. Whenever I am not writing website content or white papers, blogging or managing projects, I head outdoors to hike the hills and beaches of Marin County and the slot canyons of Utah. I also enjoy outdoor photography, bicycling, and watching brown pelicans skim over Richardson Bay.

I am a member of the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce and Business Connections Chapter of Business Networking International in San Rafael.

I invite you to view my portfolio for examples of my writing and read my LinkedIn profile. You can also hear what my clients are saying on Yelp!
