10 Things You Can Hire Me to Do (You Probably Didn’t Know)

by | Apr 24, 2024 | Entrepreneurship

I am sometimes asked what I can offer entrepreneurs and businesses.

Fair question – but not always an easy one to answer!

As a musician and avid self-promoter, I have sunk my teeth into – and have gotten very good at – more things than I sometimes care to admit.

I usually don’t promote all of it, because it’s not necessarily what I want to be known for.

But if you’re looking for a seasoned, skilled, and versatile worker, you’ve found one.

Here are 10 things you can hire me to do (you probably didn’t know).

Written Content

Upon returning from Japan, where I grew up, I was dropped into the Canadian school system. There was just one problem – I realized very quickly that I wasn’t very good at reading, and my vocabulary was a little limited.

I became fascinated with words, and before I knew it, I was devouring vocabulary lessons in Reader’s Digest, dictionaries, thesauruses, and even encyclopedias. I got plenty of practice writing bad short stories and cheesy rap lyrics.

I have been writing content for the internet since 1997, and I have been blogging since 2006. I have helped my clients create a vast array of documents to help them grow their careers or businesses.

Here are but a few examples of the types of assets I’ve worked on:

  • News updates
  • Blog articles (SEO-optimized)
  • Press releases
  • Podcast scripts
  • Video scripts
  • Screenwriting
  • Business plans
  • Grant applications
  • Song lyrics
  • eBooks, reports, and whitepapers
  • Books (I’m available to ghostwrite)
  • Email campaigns
  • Sales pages
  • Copywriting

Self-Publishing

Looking to self-publish your book?

It seems quite easy at first, but once you start delving into everything that’s required, you can easily start to feel overwhelmed.

I’ve published eight titles myself, so I know the ropes. I’m more than happy to help you figure out your:

  • Book title and subtitle
  • Book description
  • Author bio
  • Keywords and categories
  • Interior layout
  • Book cover
  • Distribution (Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc.)
  • Pricing strategy
  • Promotion and advertising strategy
  • Audiobook

Audio Content

From music to radio shows to podcasts, I can help you make your audio sound amazing so your audience wants to tune in week after week.

Let me help you with your:

  • Bumper or station ID
  • Audio editing
  • Audio sweetening
  • Mixing and mastering
  • Producing

I am also told I have the perfect voice for a podcast and a good listener, so I’m happy to work as a host or announcer too.

Custom Musical Themes

Do you need intro or outro music for your podcast or radio show? Maybe you’d like to gift a special song to a loved one. Maybe you’d like me to craft your special theme (based on your personal qualities).

Whatever it is, I can make your musical dreams come to life.

Coaching & Consulting

One of my greatest strengths as a coach or consultant is in helping you achieve clarity on what to work on, what to focus on, and what steps to take next.

If you’re lost, indecisive, or even frustrated with your career or business, feel free to reach out. An outside perspective can be an invaluable asset.

Music Lessons

I’ve been teaching guitar since 2003, and I’ve also helped some vocal, bass, and ukulele students along the way. Whether you’re just getting started, or you’ve been at it for a while, I’m ready and willing to show you the way.

Graphic Design

I’ve designed many things through the years, including:

  • Logos
  • Business cards
  • Blog banners
  • Posters
  • Book covers

My approach may not be for everyone, but if I’m not the right fit, I probably know someone who is!

Illustrations

I was practically born an artist, and from the time I was young, I loved drawing, painting, and crafting. I have occasionally used these talents in my content as well.

Is there something I can draw for you? Let me know.

Web Design

I’ve put together dozens if not hundreds of websites over the years, for individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses, niche blogs, communities, events, and more.

Digital Marketing

Whether it’s social media, email marketing, content marketing, sales funnels, affiliate marketing, or influencer marketing, I’ve got experience in virtually every category of digital marketing you can name.

And if I can’t do it, chances are I know someone who can. I’m connected to SEO and advertising specialists, graphic designers, photographers, videographers, and more.

Final Thoughts

I understand well that you might not be ready to get going with your project just yet. That’s okay. You’re still welcome to reach out, and I’d be happy to have a quick look at whatever you’re working on.
