Writer Alyssa Ast

From a young age, the power behind written words has fascinated me. Writing is who I am. It is why I exist. I always knew I had a talent for stringing sentences together, but my professional writing career didn't begin until 2007-- at the ripe age of 19. 

I was oblivious to the lengths my passion could take me until I was introduced to the online writing world. I started at the bottom by blogging, writing for content mills, and juggling journalism on the side. As I energetically began my journey as a new writer, my aspirations took a sudden turn once I was introduced to keywords, algorithms, and the deep inner workings of the internet. 

After writing a few books and co-owning a series of lifestyle websites, I quickly fell in love with all things SEO and SEM. Unskilled and unknown, I crept my way up the SEO ladder by helping small businesses develop their brand. Young and ambitious, I continued to seek bigger and better fish. 

As time has ticked by, I've built my career and reputation as an SEO professional. Over the years, I've held freelance and contract positions with multiple top 5 marketing firms in the U.S. I've had the opportunity to work with clients and companies from around the world, including many well-known brands and businesses.  

I've worn many hats throughout my career, with just a few including:

  • SEO Writer
  • SEO Campaign Manager/Developer
  • Community Relations Manager
  • Brand & Website Developer
  • SEO Strategist
  • Social Media Manager
  • Link Building Strategist

I have also published a few books, provided material for online marketing courses, and contributed to various articles published on industry-leading websites, like Marketing Land. However, as I dove deeper into the SEO industry, I missed the gratification that came from helping everyday people succeed. 

As the daughter of a former small business owner, I know firsthand the blood, sweat, tears, and sacrifices that go into running a business. Sadly, 45% of businesses fail within the first 5 years. I understand that every business is a life source. Every dollar is food on the table and a roof over your head. With mortgages, college tuitions, and retirements on the line, a business must succeed. 

Although I have taken my marketing hat off, SMBs will always have a place in my heart. I bring 15 years of experience from the online and business world with me as I use my writing talent to support the backbone of our country.
