Like Post-It Notes and champagne, the Wordsmithery was an accident. Founded in mid-2012 by wedding & portrait photographer Megan Kuethen, we got our start helping photographers find the right words for their about me pages. Demand quickly grew, and before long, Megan was helping businesses with much more, from message coaching to blog posts, social media to brand strategy, and beyond.
With a diverse background in sales & marketing, technical & creative writing, and traditional & creative business, Megan combined her experience crafting words with her consultative business background to form the Wordsmithery, a service unlike any other she'd found. Whilst other copywriters offered quick turnaround, custom copy, or great SEO content, no one seemed to understand that creative entrepreneurs already have the heart behind the words. Megan found she had a special gift for getting to that heart and seeing the core of a person and his or her business. From there, it was an easy process for her to put into words what these entrepreneurs so badly needed.
Today, we're proud to have helped photographers, wedding industry professionals, small corporate businesses, and creative entrepreneurs of all kinds by clearly communicating the heart of each business, not just with outstanding copywriting, but also with brand strategy, online messaging, social media management, and much more.
It's more than a little ironic that I've been writing About Me pages for the last 5+ years because I'm so uncomfortable with talking about myself--especially when it comes to bragging... and isn't that what most "About Me" pages are for? In truth, it's probably that hatred of self-promotion that gave me an understanding of what other creative entrepreneurs were needing in their businesses.
The hardest thing about being an artist and a business owner for me has been articulating my vision. Megan is an expert at identifying strengths and closing the gap between what's in my head and what's read online. Wordsmithery has been the missing link for me.
Megan has helped me so much throughout my journey in owning my own photography business. She has helped me with writing my portrait and wedding contracts, responding to the difficult or unique client situation, and even helping me design my album samples to present to clients. I honestly don't know where my business would be without her thoughtfulness and wisdom. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I am forever grateful.
I have always struggled with translating my often unorganized thoughts into professional and interesting wording. I could not be more thrilled that I have found The Wordsmithery. Megan is so thoughtful and talented, I've never met someone who has been able to help me define my brand so well.
Megan has the uncanny ability to express my voice in such an eloquent manner, despite me giving her a jumbled mess of thoughts and ideas. She's quick, and she is a master of language. If you are a creative mind but need assistance with your online presence, you can't go wrong in hiring Megan. She's truly a gem!
I spent an evening with Megan before my big promo video shoot. I was in desperate need to of defining my why. I'm awful when it comes to words so I knew I needed help. With Megan's help, I was not only able to write up my promo video, but rebrand brand my business based on one simple sentence. I will soon be enlisting help once again for an expansion of my business!
Megan is the bomb! She created the PERFECT copy for me! I can't wait to finish my site!
If you need a new BIO (or even if you don't), get Megan Kuethen with The Wordsmithery to write you one! You won't regret it!
