What I want to help you do:
* Design your website, or redesign it, to make it more appealing and functional,
* Get new people's eyes on your site by using social media to entice them to click, and
* Tell your story about what you do and why potential customers should give you a chance.
ThePhillyFiles.com is my site with more than local news posts, but also features of interest to all.
CohenConnect.com was my first project. It's a blog dating back more than five years.
Writing and Social Media
I work at the web hosting company IONOS, and that's where this WordPress website and my two others are hosted. I answer customer service calls concerning the company's web builder, MyWebsite, so I know the ins and outs of those CMSs (content management systems) very well.
My favorite part is helping customers create and fix their websites — especially making suggestions, introducing new ideas and fixing mistakes, both technical and writing. I’d love to do follow through with clients full-time, rather than see something for the first time on a random phone call that’s not supposed to last more than 15 minutes.
I also enjoy finding the right set of products for customers, so they're not paying more than they should, yet getting what they need. Plus, I handle billing issues.
I spent more than a quarter-century producing newscasts in Philadelphia, Miami and Connecticut. Journalists cover all sorts of stories so it's said we know "a little bit about everything" but are experts at nothing. That's not completely true.
I started producing websites in 2004 at the CBS stations in Miami and West Palm Beach, Fla. There were WFOR (CBS), WBFS (UPN), WTVX (WB/UPN). I did that for two years before teaching first grade for eight years. Then, I started my blog CohenConnect in 2015 and started working as digital media manager at WCYB in the Tri-Cities of TN/VA. From there, I returned to Philadelphia as a web producer for WTXF. I also spent time reporting for Philadelphia Gay News and reviving its social media. Since then, I started up a news website, The Philly Files.
My search engine optimization (SEO) skills drive results. Also, I offer advertising space on my other websites. Click around this page to see my social media feeds for them.
