Founder and Managing Editor
I'm a writer, entrepreneur and digital strategist. After six years as a journalist, I transitioned to full-time entrepreneur in mid-2010. My business includes...
+ Growing a community around The Write Life, a website for writers: http://thewritelife.com
+ Creating digital guides and courses: http://alexisgrant.com/store
+ Helping small businesses grow communities through blogging and social media. One of our clients, for example, is Brazen Careerist; we manage and grow their popular blog: http://blog.brazencareerist.com
I'm also a manager, a skill I've learned on the job as my team grew to its current size of 10 awesome writers, editors and social media specialists.
I love brainstorming how to create buzz around a brand, smart ways to grow a following online, and strategies for making connections that will help you reach your goals. I'm fascinated by the new, digital world of work and alternative careers.
I founded a website for writers called The Write Life: http://thewritelife.com. My team and I bootstrapped and launched the site in July 2013.
In the first nine months, we cultivated a devoted community of readers, using quality content and community-building strategies to grow to 90,000 unique visitors monthly.
In March 2014, we offered a flash sale called The Writer's Bundle, selling 435 copies of the $79 bundle in just three days.
We help small businesses use blogging and social media effectively to grow communities and reach goals. For more details on our work, see http://socialexis.com.
For example, for the last 2.5 years, we've managed Brazen Careerist's blog: http://blog.brazencareerist.com. We also run the blog, newsletter and social campaigns for DC-based startup Eone Timepieces: http://eone-time.com/blog.
I blog about the new world of work and digital entrepreneurship at AlexisGrant.com. Through this platform, I also offer webinars, ebooks and courses: http://alexisgrant.com/store.
Problogger named me as one of their Bloggers to Watch in 2012, calling me a "publishing powerhouse."
