Welcome. I’m Anna Edmondson, writer, editor, content strategist and the founder of AE Creative Content.
I’ve created a new approach to writing for online marketing that makes it accessible, less confusing, and more meaningful for businesses to connect with their audience. I help companies communicate strategically, with flair, and on brand.
More than anything in the world, I care about serving others. And if there’s one thing I’m really, really good at, it’s communicating clearly and helping others feel heard.
Prior to doing this work, I was an urban planning consultant for non-profit organizations working in developing countries. I wrote about big picture issues such as poverty and infant mortality. After living in Haiti and Thailand for nearly four years, I realized two things:
1) I loved working with diverse cultures
2) entrepreneurship can be a powerful agent for social change
So I quit my consulting practice and got a job in Bangkok with a public relations firm. Here I was able to merge my passion for social service with the hands-on creativity of business communications. Ten years later I published my first personal essays and began offering editing services to friends, organizations, and small businesses.
Fast-forward to today, I help marketing executives and entrepreneurs plan and execute their communications strategies, from websites, newsletters, and blogs, to books, workshops, and events. I have devoted my entire business to serving people who struggle with the confusion and overwhelm of content marketing and who really, really want to connect and be understood.
Sometimes, my work looks like a brainstorming session with a lot of lateral thinking and talking about ideas, stories, and details. Other times, it’s me at my desk, conjuring up the exact phrase to communicate a client’s brand.
When I need a team, I draw from my community of trusted experts, many of whom are members of Business Networking International, an amazing referral marketing organization. I recommend BNI to any entrepreneur who wants to up their game.
Ultimately, all of my work is about celebrating the values, passions, and talents of my clients.
Because the world is way better when we share our gifts with the world.
