— Maryann Eberle, SEO Writer; Author

Melissa combines project management and SEO skills with a writer’s creativity and a warm personality. I reported to Melissa as an editor for a coupon SEO website that featured hundreds of articles approx. 1,400 words each. She also managed two other editors and 20 writers.


Since Melissa’s experience includes writing and eCommerce, she understood how to edit and write for an SEO environment. For example, she explained the nuances of using keywords and making articles more SEO friendly. In addition, she uploaded articles using a CMS and trained the editors on how to use it too.


She also set up an organized system of Google Docs, Gmail and spreadsheets that helped us do our jobs. With dozens of SEO articles coming through almost every day, Melissa’s project management system helped us work independently and productively. In addition, she kept everyone informed with one-on-one calls as well as conference calls, emails, and texts. Although Melissa always made sure work moved along efficiently, her warmth and kindness provided camaraderie and caring that motivated the team.
