About the Episode:
In today’s episode, we’re talking to Elise Dopson, an elite B2B freelance writer who’s worked with or been featured on sites like HubSpot, CoSchedule, The Content Marketing Institute and ConversionXL to name a few.
Hailing from Manchester in the United Kingdom, Elise actually got her start in the digital world with her very first blog – focused on beauty products she was into – at the surprisingly young age of 12! After graduating from high school, Elise didn’t feel like going to University would be the best fit for her, so she decided to head straight into the workforce and that’s when she landed her first gig working at a content marketing agency.
After a couple of years working at the agency, she decided it was time to strike out on her own as a freelance writer, so that she could do more of the actual fun writing work with clients, rather than simply spending hours project managing behind the scenes. She’s been rapidly on the rise as a B2B freelance writer ever since.
