I'm Julie Ross Myers.

I've written 6,630,000 words.

That's the equivalent of 73 novels.

If you're on this page, you're probably figuring out if you want to work with me. Okey doke, let me help answer that.

I've been around the block more than once. I know why people buy. And don't buy. I began doing digital marketing in 2000 and joined the original dot com boom. I left a senior position with an agency in 2010 to focus on web design.

Why I ditched a six-figure income.

Back in the day, my salary and two solid freelance clients easily cleared six figures. But, writing is about more than money. I want to feel good about the clients I serve and the work I produce.

In theory, going freelance full-time meant I could pick and choose my projects. But Miami is mucho expensive. Too often, I wound up working for nightmare clients just to stay afloat.

So a few years ago, I chucked everything and moved to Edgewater, Florida. It's a small town with nothing going on, but the low cost of living offers economic freedom and the slow pace gives me time to think.

Can I guarantee results? 

Here's the truth: no one can promise specific marketing results. No one. There are just too many variables. When a writer says, "My blog post increased traffic by 400%," you have no way of knowing exactly what that means. 

Regardless, I stand behind my work. If I fail to deliver on my promises, I'll refund your money.

When I'm not working...

I'm binge watching Netflix (like everyone else) with my toy poodle Max.
