• Well, hello there!

    I'm a Marketing Consultant

    I want to help you rock your small business content marketing.

    Start Here

Hi, I'm Alana Le

I’m a marketing consultant specializing in content marketing.

Business Blogging, Email Marketing, & SEO Consulting

I love helping small businesses with blogging, email marketing, and SEO.

My approach focuses on creating high quality, helpful, and meaningful content that you can use to attract more customers – and then turn them into loyal, longtime fans.

After all, these days it’s pretty easy to set up a website and a few social media accounts for your business.

But figuring out what to say once you have them? That’s a whole other story, and that’s what I love to do.

No matter whether you’re a DIY craft genius, real estate mogul wannabe, home renovation specialist, or personal fitness expert – you have something special to offer the world, and I want to help you say it.

I don’t mean that in a cheesy way. If you want to reach more customers affordably, that’s the way to do it. The more fresh, high quality content you create, the more Google will like your website… 

Marketing Coaching OR Consulting – Up To You

As your consultant, I’ll either teach you how to do what I do so you can DIY it, or I’ll write and share excellent content on your behalf.

We’ll use these to attract new sales leads, convert your skeptics and turn them into customers, delight your customers, and turn your customers into your biggest evangelists.

More About Me: World Traveler & Entrepreneurship Lover

I was born in Seattle but have lived all over the world, from Moscow to Manila. I speak fluent Mandarin Chinese as well as bits and pieces of Spanish, Tagalog, and Russian.

I have a BA in East Asian Studies from Davidson College in North Carolina and over 8 years of project management experience helping tech startups and small organizations thrive in some of the world’s most challenging markets, including China and the Philippines.

In other words, I know what it’s like to have big dreams and a really tight budget…

Kind Of Obsessed With Entrepreneurship

I’m also an entrepreneur who can’t get enough of helping other entrepreneurs succeed. Seriously, I’m addicted…

After starting my business, I was stunned at the lack of effective support out there for early stage solo entrepreneurs, especially those of us who work at home.

How can we all be feeling isolated, confused, and frustrated at the same time? I thought we might be able to change that by getting together and sharing our knowledge, and when I tried it, it really worked.

So I founded a website and business community called The Empowered Entrepreneur Co., which is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs survive – and even thrive – in those tough early stages.
