Margo Upson is a freelance writer, marketing consultant, and sometimes web designer. Born and raised near Ithaca, New York, and working with clients around the country, Margo asserts that she is a writer first, and a marketer second, but that she’s really in the business of communication. Her specialty is in helping small businesses tell their story through branding, content, and marketing strategy.
Margo began her career as a freelance writer in 2008, crafting blog posts and marketing materials for a wide range of both small businesses and larger corporations, including Pampers and Education.com. In 2012, she returned to school to continue her degree in marketing and small business management from SUNY ESC, and in 2014, opened a small business marketing agency.
In addition to her work in marketing, Margo also works with authors and other creatives, helping them to combine their artistic passion with business and marketing know-how. She has organized and taught online workshops on social media use for authors, and runs an author marketing website. She is joining Whole Heart Productions as their Brand and Marketing Manager, working with clients to develop personalized branding strategies.
When she’s not working, she splits her time between her family and working on her next novel.
