Really small businesses deserve help, too.


You know you need new website copy. You’re not sure you can afford it, but you don’t know how to do it yourself.

That’s where I come in.

At Kelley Gardiner Copywriting, the goal is give you the kind of help you need.

So you can have that new website copy that works. Without a five-figure marketing budget.

And we try to keep the process more fun too. Because life’s too short to make it a freaking grind!

"Thorough, thoughtful, and professional."

A little about Kelley

I peaced out from my day job in 2014. I was always writing on the side, but that’s when I really started in earnest—from fact-checking the music listings for the local alt weekly to writing “best cookies in town” listicles.

For the last five years, I’ve been 100% laser-focused on how website copy works. (When I’m not thinking about cookies.) I love helping small business owners get better results and feel more confident about sharing the online portion of their work.

My mission is to help you build a business that fits your life. 

Choose me if:

    • You want to be part of a community of small businesses that support each other
    • You could use a calm, steady presence in your work life
    • Your brand voice is: upbeat, positive, friendly, slightly quirky, bold, or exciting

Don’t choose me if:

  • Your business promotes weight loss as a goal in itself
  • Your brand voice is the actual voice of a zombie (too scary)
