Proud to be a Partner with SMART Growth Marketing

I’m proud to be a partner with SMART Growth Marketing as an independent copywriter. I met founder Darien Hill last year at Tasha Chen’s annual gathering, now known as The Manifesting Event. I shared a table with him and his lovely wife Davina, and when I told him what I did for a living, he asked for my card. Soon after, I spoke with him and then-biz-partner Jody Layne, which led to my work on multiple copywriting projects for a diverse array of SMART Growth Marketing clients.

My association with them has been rewarding, fun, and informative. Among other things, Darien has taught me how to write effective Facebook ads, landing pages, and eBooks, which is particular helpful in this rapidly changing technology and social media arena. Furthermore, I appreciate SMART Growth Marketing’s commitment to excellence – not only for their clients, but for independent contractors like me. Thanks to their knowledge and expertise, I’ve developed my copywriting skills, gained valuable insights, discovered industries and clients I never knew existed, and expanded my own professional services.

Although I’m no longer hosting The Writestream on Blog Talk Radio, I’m hoping to interview Darien and Annie again on Your Book, Your Brand, Your Business on W4CY Radio in the near future. If you are a small business owner seeking to leverage social media for even greater success, I highly recommend visit SMART Growth Marketing and scheduling a free coaching session with them.

About Jody Layne

Jody Layne loves people and loves to talk. Her passion is working with clients and brainstorming what will work best for them. She also loves to teach what she knows. After 25 years as a professional marketer, Jody has worked in lots of mediums, but it is the SMART marketing concept that she loves best.  She believes that consumers don’t want to be sold to anymore.  They know what they need and when they are ready to buy, they will do their own research.  The products and services that are most relevant and the companies that provide the most value will be the ones that win the sale.  Jody has presented her ideas to a number of groups over the years and loves to work with businesses who understand the value of marketing.  She also owns a software company with her husband, is a marathon runner and she is a mom to the coolest 13 year old ever.
