You need to do three things: connect with the right audience, create a compelling message, and make it easy for your audience to become customers. And you need to do all that in a crowded marketplace.

You already know how important it is to get your message out, but you might also have a big pile of work on your desk. You might not have time to manage your website or social media accounts. Or you might just be stuck, trying to come up with a smart marketing or social media plan.

The Agency of Words helps you take your best stories — the why, how, and right now of your business, in words and in images — and puts them together to create memorable experiences for your audience.

Great marketing engages the right people — your people — and spurs action. A smart, genuine voice draws them in. You have that voice. I can help you find it. Let’s get to work.


How do you get great content? Hire a copywriter with the skills of a surgeon and heart of an assassin. Web content, editorial content, mission statements and ad copy.  Smart, classy writing focused on your core message.


Smart social media strategy and tactics means you work smarter, not harder. Learn how to promote an event across channels or how to run day-to-day social media communications. Words, pictures, audience. Let’s get you there.


No-nonsense, confidence-building training and information on how to build better businesses through creative, savvy marketing. Workshops with smart, accessible content tailored for your audience.

Mission, message, audience.

There’s noise out there. You know that. But you can reach through it.

Don’t worry about “thinking outside the box”. Keep the box. Cut holes in it and make it into a fort, because forts are cool. Your people will see it and want to come hang out with you.

That’s how you reach your audience. Do and say what resonates. What’s true to you and to them. That’s where the magic lives: your imagination. Your creative spark. Your purpose.

Your job is to show up at your best.

My job is to help you create smart strategies and clear messages that resonate with your audience.

“Great stories captivate your audience. They create connection points. It’s about more than just ‘content’. It’s about people.”


“Stacey’s understanding of the intricacies of interactions on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram is invaluable to my work with Craft Nova Scotia, Canadian Craft Federation, and as a volunteer for the Nova Scotia Printmakers. Her timely advice on having a common, approachable voice, and tweaking it for each platform has helped our non-profit organizations, and our membership engage with our community, stakeholders, and collectors effectively, even as the social media landscape changes by the minute.”

Julie Rosvall


Program Coordinator, Craft Nova Scotia

“Stacey helped me with content and branding ideas when I first started my blog a few years ago. She was incredibly helpful and perceptive to my audience needs and provided great input on how to get my message out effectively. I still use the tips and guidelines she gave me and I highly recommend her services.”

Rachel Mathews


Owner, Successful Garden Design

“Stacey agreed to be a beta reader for my most successful book The Age of the Platform. In so doing, she gave me some valuable insights and feedback. She has a knack for seeing important details while keeping an eye on the big picture. I appreciate her no-BS approach, her sense of humor, and her respect for the craft of writing — all the things you’d want in an editor.”

Phil Simon


Award-winning author, professor at Arizona State University

“I attended Stacey’s workshop and found it very useful. I was so inspired that when I got home I immediately retooled my social media presence to make it more user friendly. I also revisited my marketing materials and added more content. I hope she returns and offers another session!”
