Taking the Terror out of Tech

I’m Marjan, a Smart Blogger certified content marketing expert, working from the Netherlands with over 30 years of experience in software requirements, analysis, development, and support for the Business Planning and Analytics, Financial, and Manufacturing industries.

My specialty is writing comprehensive engaging content that makes complicated and complex topics easy to understand and consume. I write straightforward language in a conversational style and illustrate abstract topics with concrete examples.

With me, you get someone who understands both the technical and human side of software development and other technologies, as well as the businesses creating and using it.

Why work with me?

My content will get you more traffic than other writers. Potentially 10-100X more.

Yes, that’s a bold claim, but I’ve been personally mentored by Jon Morrow, one of the top traffic experts in the world (Google him). So, I’m confident I can deliver for you.

But, I may not be for you

I’m more expensive than most writers. Because my work gets more traffic, I charge a minimum of $.25 a word and more for research-heavy pieces. And that rate will only be rising as my content gets results for my clients.

Also, I ask a lot of questions. Questions you may not yet have answers to. That’s alright. I can help you get them. And you really want me to get those answers, because I need them to get you those results!

It’s your decision

So, if you’re looking for a writer who doesn’t ask questions, guesses at what you really need and just writes what you ask, I’m not that person.

But, if you’re looking for someone who is intent on getting the results that move the needle for your business’ content marketing, then do get in touch to have a chat about the ambitions for your business and the content that can help you achieve them.

Make Me a Programmer

Front Row Agile (as guest author)

Happy Melly (as guest author)

Since I wrote these, the Happy Melly blog has been moved into the Management 3.0 blog. It looks like the “Can hobbies make you happier?” got lost in the process.

Software on a String

Software on a String started when I was still fully into software development as a developer. It holds articles on Delphi and C# coding as well as general articles on development practices. Later on, and especially when I became aware of Agile Coaching, I started writing on (agile) (software) (development) (teams). Yeah, I know, sorry, still a bit of a geek.
