Who, What, When, Where, Why and How About Me

“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It’s that easy, and that hard.”
Neil Gaiman

For over A.M. Scialis (Gmail)40 years, I did just that, putting one word after another, covering the business and entertainment beats for community newspapers & magazines. But the media world changed and I changed with it. My name is Anthony Scialis and I am now a Content Writer for Social Media.

My job is to make your job easier. Does it take you three hours to compose one paragraph? I can do 300 words just getting out of bed in the morning.

I assist with writing blogs and tweets so small biz owners can go back to doing what they enjoy and do best— run their businesses.

Unfortunately, some business owners tarnish their on-line presence by “going cheap” and letting a nephew, niece or someone on staff handle Social Media.

Too often I’ve trudged through personal and business blogs, Facebook posts, and tweets which were mangled grammatically; they were weighed down with words misspelled or misused because authors had opted for a lazy approach to Social Media rather than having developed a working knowledge of the tools of their craft.

Nephews, nieces, and college interns may be talented passionate consumers of Social Media, but they are not trained content marketers.

Passion is nice, but my over 40 years of experience, meeting deadlines & engaging audiences, will serve you better in exceeding business goals.

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

“A word after a word after a word is power.”
Margaret Atwood

When you operate a small to medium business in the 21st century, you need to be on Social Media. That’s where your customers are, and they ARE talking about you.
