Meet Digital Marketer and Writer Meryl Evans

 

Bio

Meryl Evans headshotI’m Meryl K. Evans, Digital Marketing Maven and author of “Brilliant Outlook Pocketbook” and the co-author of Adapting to Web Standards: CSS and Ajax for Big Sites. Since starting this writing and content marketing business in 2000, I’ve written and edited for “Billiards Digest,” “The Dallas Morning News,” ECT News Network, Lockergnome, MarketingProfs, “PC Today,” O’Reilly, Pearson, Sams, Web Worker Daily, Wiley and WROX. Meryl has written copy for businesses ads, cars (from Porsches and Jaguars to Lexuses — or is that Lexi? — and Hondas) and games including Fib-or-Not? and Meet, Mix, and Mingle.

My blog went live on June 1, 2000. It’s been asleep for awhile as I prefer to channel all my blogging energies on my clients’ blogs.

How your business benefits: Your businesses will build and maintain relationships with your clients and prospects through digital marketing such as email newsletters, emails, landing pages, blogs, articles, and more. Whatever your digital marketing goals, you’ll achieve them with my help.

Email newsletters: Original Editor-in-Chief of Intel Solution Services’ “Connected Digest” and Shavlik’s “The Remediator Security Digest,” a popular newsletter on computer security that started with a few thousand subscribers and climbed to over 100,000 subscribers during my tenure. I’ve been the editor of Professional Service Journal — an email newsletter for business-to-business (B2B) professional services providers — for more than 10 years.
I’ve worked in education with New York University’s online graduate program where I’ve helped students with their theses. (Gentrification in Harlem was one of the more interesting topics.) Past jobs include two Fortune 500 telecom companies, federal government in Washington, D.C. and IT consulting. A native Texan, I live a heartbeat north of Dallas in Plano, Texas with my husband, three kiddos and one four-legged one who thinks she’s human.

Why work with me? I have a reputation for providing high quality digital marketing services and deliverables on time (usually early) that matches your company’s requirements. Most clients work with me again, some come back even after changing companies. Here are client testimonials.

History

Meryl first joined the Internet pre-revolution in 1992 with Internet in a Box. She blogged the rest of the meryl history for your reading boredom.

Why the dull, uncreative names?

I racked my brain to come up with a name that would stick. Alas, nothing came. Ironically, I loves to read about names and the meanings behind them. I’m even a professional namer! Yet, I couldn’t name this electronic baby.

I never had a nickname, a big hobby or a way for making up a creative name using my name. For example: If your last name was Boot, then a good Web name would be “Reboot.” Although I had a handle from my BBS (pre-Internet) days, I was embarrassed for ever having used it. Considering “meryl” is so uncommon considering the lifetime of misspellings and mispronunciations, I used it thinking a better name would come later. No brilliant idea ever came. So, meryl stuck.

Not So Vital Info

Bio: The cool version

I’ve been hanging out on the pre-Internet aka BBS since 1986. (I appears in BBS: The Documentary, which landed me my own IMDB.com page. Color me shocked.) I met the Internet in 1993. In digital years, that would be the 1800s. I fell in love with it at first text.

I’ve written for anything and everything relating to Web design, technology, content marketing, writing, automotive and buffaloes (not kidding).

I’m the president, CEO, CIO, CMO, CFO and founder of meryl.net, writing, editing, content marketing, social media management, tech fixer-upper and all that extra stuff services.

I’ve blogged about living life as a deaf person. Mi numero uno priority ees de familia. You can find this southpaw in the Lone Star State … not wearing 10-gallon hats.
