About Joe Nattress

Are you a marketing manager or business owner tired of the stress? The stress of not having enough time, marketing staff, or engagement with your marketing content?Joe Nattress Freelance Writer

If so, you’re in the right place.

I’m Joe Nattress. I can help relieve some of that marketing stress. I write online content that engages readers, builds relationships, and converts prospects to buyers.

And I’ve been told I throw some pretty good dinner parties, too.

But more on that later.

What I’m up to

I’m an online content writer and copywriter. I write marketing materials for nonprofits and socially conscious businesses, like yours.

I’ve also spent the last 20 years as a university English teacher trying to convince students of the value of clear communication. That means I’m part coach, part salesman, part entertainer. And part cat herder. I wear many hats.

One of my hats is that of a writing teacher. That means I’ve edited more piles of student papers than I can count. 20 years. Lots of editing.

And doing research, planning courses, creating lessons, meeting deadlines, and writing emails. Lots of writing.

It’s busy work. But when I see that spark when my students get it, it’s all worth it.

It’s similar to the feeling I get when my marketing clients see a boost in conversions and sales from something I wrote. It’s satisfying to see positive change in my clients’ bottom line.   

Why I choose to work with organizations that care

I work with people, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that care – about the environment, human dignity, equality, equal access to education, and animal protection. And just doing good, honest, respectful business.

This comes from my 3 strongest passions.

Social justice and equality

I grew up in the countryside on the West Coast of the U.S. My mom worked in social services and my dad was a small town teacher. I was raised to believe that everyone deserved to be treated equally and given a fair chance.

Animal rescue and protection

We also used to give a fair chance to the street animals we welcomed into our home. I grew up with a lot of cats.

My wife and I still rescue street cats and dogs here in Asia. We’ve got quite a “crew”, as she calls them, on our farm in Thailand. And our 2 former street kittens in Japan are very happy to be indoors during the cold winters.

Environmental conservation

I spent a lot of time in my childhood swimming, fishing, canoeing, sailing, hiking, and camping. Outdoor adventures have been part of my life ever since. My connection with the outdoors made me a passionate conservationist long before it was the obvious imperative that it is today.

What this means to you

My goal is to write marketing content that tells your story and accomplishes your mission. I do this by learning all I can about your product or service, doing further research on your market, and writing content that connects with your audience.

And since I work with companies that align with my own passions and values, I know that when your campaigns succeed, I’m making a positive impact on the world.

What’s next?

Oh, and those dinner parties?

Outside of work, I enjoy my life. I’m into travel, photography, and spending a lot of time on boats and motorcycles. And in hiking boots. I’m usually with interesting people. My wife and I are known for our dinner parties with lots of good food, good wine, and laughter. And dancing. And occasional Asian culinary delicacies like creatures with many legs. For me, life is always an adventure.
