You need quality copy. I love to write. Let's chat!

About Me

I'm an exceptionally skilled writer, designer, and entrepreneur.

Briley Kenney

SEO Expert | Contributing Editor | Content Manager | VP of Operations
I'm 36 years old, and I have been a freelance writer, copywriter, and entrepreneur for over 15 years.

You might recognize my name. Presently, I am the Senior SEO Copywriter for Commerce Strategy at Digital Trends. I work closely with my team, the editorial team, and our clients to craft exceptional prose. I also create a lot of content for DTMG's affiliate sites, including The Manual, 21Oak, Newfolks, and beyond.

I've done a lot of work for Code 9 Media. I served as a Content Manager and sidekick for the CEO, Chris Kite. He's a cool guy and he gave me a lot of free rein.

I was a member of the Ideaing team. I was originally hired to write about smart home products and entertainment. The site was eventually converted to a deals portal. I posted new deals daily and managed several aspects of the brand including a bi-weekly email newsletter.

Also, I was previously a member of the Lifewire team. We produced "how-to" content, intending to educate others about topics like technology, software, current events, and more. For a time, I also worked with the Lifewire commerce team to review products and create round-ups.

I wrote "best of" and long-form content for GadgetReview.

Finally, I also work for [confidential SEO company] generating content daily. Most of the work I create for the company is published under different bylines. I have also signed an NDA which is why I cannot disclose the name.

Unfortunately, what matters most is what you don't see. A great deal of my content has been published under a different byline. It's likely you've read my content somewhere and didn't even know! You can view a list of the topics I have covered for confidential clients.

In my free time, I worked with Little Killerz on an Android-based RPG called Tales of Illyria. I created the website copy and tailored most of the design elements. There are three games in the series, and across all of them, I have personally written more than 250,000 words.

I now work on an NFT project called Hype Beasts serving as a writer and dev, and designer in some capacities.

This is the stuff I'm good at!

Give me a topic and I'll do the research and give you a solid, engaging piece of content.

During my career, I have created a veritable treasure trove of content on a variety of topics. Content topics include B2B, technology, live-event apps, business advice, hoteliers and hospitality, video games, Wordpress tutorials, pets, health and fitness, parenting and more.

Check out my portfolio for a list of projects I've been a part of. You can also take a look at more of my published work here.

SEO optimization really starts at the foundation. You cannot plug keywords in and hope to succeed.

I work with SEO on a daily basis to optimize content. All of my articles include high-ranking keywords, meta details, and more.

In today's politically correct world, it's not enough to write. You must also be able to edit your own content and ensure it's free of grammatical and contextual errors.

I am an experienced content manager, and I have been tasked with managing a team of like-minded creators many times over.

Website copy, blogs, emails, TPS reports, you name it!

For nearly all my projects I must find suitable images to match the content or capture them myself. That includes editing the images to improve clarity, quality and style.

To create a website you need working knowledge of HTML.

I have designed several websites including the examples listed here.

What is writing usually accompanied by? Images!

I spend a lot of time finding relevant images - or capturing them. I also have experience editing photos by adding watermarks, text, and making enhancements.

I can handle outreach and secure hyperlinks for products, reviews, and more.

Since a young age, I have always been fascinated with computers.

I have built several custom computers for myself, family, friends, and colleagues.

Naturally, you use software like Microsoft Office to do your writing, and additional tools like Photoshop to edit images.

The list of software applications I am familiar with is long, and virtually endless. Every day I learn something new. It includes Excel, Word, Google Docs, Dropbox, Asana, WordPress, Grammarly, screen capture tools, video editing apps, and much more.

While I do know HTML and CSS well enough to create website from scratch, I prefer to use WordPress.

I have created multiple sites in WordPress including this one, Vulgamer, Techigar, AMP Tutorial, and many others.

I also work with WordPress and other CMS platforms daily to publish content.

Needless to say, I am well-versed.

After you create content it must be promoted.

Over the years, I have handled the social media accounts for Code 9 Media, Ideaing, and many others. If you want help promoting content on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and more, I'm your man.
