The term, Freelance, was first used by Sir Walter Scott in his novel, Ivanhoe, in 1820 to describe a “medieval mercenary warrior” or “free-lance” (indicating that the lance is not sworn to any lord’s services). In other words, we are for hire and we will apply that same drive, enthusiasm and skill on your behalf that the old-style warrior offered.

If you have read any of the content to be found on the SMM BC and associated websites, then you have seen how Barry Welford can develop rich content that is search engine visible and is so engaging that people share it on social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, StumbleUpon and Pinterest. He has written on a variety of other major websites too and you can see PDF versions of some of these other articles in his Portfolio.  You can have him work on your behalf with the same success.

If you need speech writing services, then this too is available.  Whatever the size of audience, whether it be a keynote address or something to motivate the work team, Barry Welford has been there and done that and can work with you on a polished presentation.

You may notice that some of the SMM blogs feature guest posts by others. All of these have been edited to a greater or lesser extent by Barry Welford to ensure the end result has the same high quality and online visibility to be found in the works of Barry Welford.
