Meet Angela Allen
Angela focuses on designing websites that work, are intuitive, and have the best possible content to provide organic SEO muscle that performs for her clients. She is an entrepreneur who has been assisting clients with their marketing needs and creating content for clients, since 1999.
Angela has served clients in 28 states in the USA and international clients in Taiwan, China, Africa, Canada, Spain, Bermuda, and the UK. A computer geek since the late 70s (thanks to her computer-building father and her own burning desire to own a robot to do her personal bidding), she has been working "virtually" since before the term was commonplace.
An active member of online communities for real estate agents and mobile professionals, she has served as managing editor of an industry news publication for Virtual Assistants and has been a contributing writer to several virtual, technical, and professional publications.
Angela promotes professional outsourcing, mentors those new to the field, and maintains her connections with an elite network of career outsourcing professionals with a wide range of skills. This means she can refer her clients to the cream of the crop service providers when those needs arise in any area of their businesses.
In every position she has ever held, communication has been her central focus. She loves helping small business owners grow through planning and creative marketing. Angela focuses her content creation for clients on developing SEO-friendly information online to promote their business.
Before launching her own online businesses, WickedWordcraft (later renamed Wicked Writer), Angela served as the managing editor of a small newspaper, as a political campaign media coordinator, a public relations consultant, the coordinator of a regional cancer program and also worked in fundraising and event planning.
