My Story

Hi there! I’m Stephanie (aka Steph Shakes) – I’m a content wizard and a Jill-of-all-trades based in the Chicago area but fully remote in North America. I have over seven years of content under my belt in an agency setting and freelance basis.

In my several years of content marketing, strategy, and writing, I’ve worked with dozens of brands (B2B and B2C) to drive business results. I will work with practically any industry and have worked with automotive, cybersecurity, web hosting, DevOps, cloud, insurance, real estate, Ecommerce, executive recruiting, and more subject niches than you can think of.

I simplify complex topics and turn them into a pleasant experience for the reader. My detail-oriented personality makes me a content strategy, writing, and SEO editing expert. I can research and pick apart content for the most compelling and human work available and adapt to any voice tone. As a bonus, I pride myself on quick turnaround times and transparent communication. I approach my work with empathy, humility, and grace, to better connect with you, the client, as well as the reader. 

Work Samples

SEO & Content Writing

On-page SEO and heavy research is a base for my content writing projects. I use keyword research, competitive analysis, and other SEO best practices to write compelling content. My content writing projects include blog posts, social media, ghostwriting, guest posts, thought leadership pieces, emails, eBooks, case studies, white papers, web copy, infographics, and more. 

Content Editing

I’ll edit any copy, including optimizing SEO keywords, headings, and more. I’ll adhere to your brand style guide and adapt to the tone and voice quickly. I’ll check writing for plagiarism and fact-check. 


An eloquently written copy is essential for brand recognition in your business. It’s not just about words. I’ll make your website copy impactful for more conversions. 

Content Strategy and Plan

The devil is in the details. I will help you design and execute a content strategy and offer human SEO content writing and copywriting services to help you reach your conversion goals. Then, I’ll create a content plan (calendar) to follow. 

Social Media

Social media strategy and creation is the first love of my career – it’s what got me started in content. I have experience in optimizing social profiles, engagement, consistent posting, and scheduling and reporting.
