Exclusively responsible for guiding publications from inception through publication. This includes
idea generation, working with independent contractors to generate content, project
management, and formatting publications. Responsibilities also include implementing marketing
initiatives and developing and managing company websites.
Through my efforts, the company’s most popular title was able to generate over $130,000 in sales
during its initial year of publication. In addition, Publisher’s Weekly highlighted that title as being
among the industries bestselling, adult coloring books during the week covering May 15, 2015.
During this summer job I worked in conjunction with photographers and a section editor as I progressed through the journey from assignment to conducting interviews to meeting my deadline for publication. The majority of the articles that I produced achieved front-page placement within their respective sections.
Authored several titles that have reached bestseller status on both Amazon.com and international Amazon domains. In addition to authoring said titles, I also undertook promotional efforts and, as a result, was able to secure coverage on several prominent websites. Finally, one of my books was endorsed by foremost self-publishing expert Dan Poynter as “...meaning the difference between failure or ultimate success.”
Having begun creating static websites with only HTML, my knowledge of web development
evolved with technology until I became proficient in using WordPress as a CMS. I also engaged in
content creation for said sites in order to drive organic traffic and maintain a loyal readership.
Finally, I used affiliate marketing and integrated ads from networks in order to generate revenue.
It is was through this experience of creating, maintaining, and acting as the managing editor of
multiple websites that I was able to acquire the qualifications necessary to author WordPress 3 Site
