Hi, I’m Chris Meyer!
I'm an independent Content Strategist and Writer and I live in Berkeley, California, just a 15 to 80-minute drive to San Francisco (depending on traffic).
I create content for and consult clients who need a professional writer and content marketing advisor who can help them generate more traffic and turn it into revenue.
My clients are small business owners, in-house marketers, and digital marketing agencies in the technology, finance, and real estate industries. A few of their names are:
- ARC Document Solutions
- One Trust Privacy Software
- Endpoint Closing
- Prateorian Digital Agency
- FORA Financial
- The Mortgage Hub
When it comes to work, my version of fun is finding the right words and images to help my clients overcome real business challenges.
The short-version of my story:
Fresh out of the University of Hawaii with two degrees (English and Finance) to my name, I started my career in commercial real estate as a salesperson.
On the side, I took up a variety of content-related jobs. In the beginning, those side jobs varied from helping high school students write their essays, to penning articles for college websites and writing copy on spec.
Then, I partnered with a designer to create a website and maintain a blog for a real estate client and I realized I could use my lifelong passion (writing) and combine it with my favorite part of real estate (marketing).
So I did, on my own for several months, and then full-time as an in-house content writer at a tech company. Following my time as in-house writer, I struck back out on my own with an evolved skill set which I’ve applied to solve a variety of my clients’ content problems over the past few years.
Today, I’m still working independently—something I love to do because it allows me to help more people with their content in a bigger way.
- I played college tennis for the University of Hawaii and still compete today. Only now, I’m a weekend warrior.
- I write short stories for fun and I like to make bizarre connections to explain abstract concepts. (Example)
- I've competed in three triathlons and only gotten lost once.
