ABOUT Jamillah Warner, the poet with a passion for business post image

I’m MsJ, the gritty writer and freelance blogger who helps business owners get clear about their marketing message.

There’s one goal here, to help you discover the core message behind your brand and then package it in as many forms as possible.

Whether you’re blogging to build your business, creating posters for an upcoming event or being interviewed for the local paper, every bit of your communication should spread your main message and it should be natural and organic.

Make The Message Look Easy

Like great fashion, a strong marketing message takes effort. In fact, you have to work so hard that you make it look easy.

Rambling, for example, is simple for you, but hard on your audience. You just start talking and hope you end up somewhere.

But a short, tight message may cost you hours in prep work, yet it makes the message easy for your audience to digest and easy for your people to share. Now that’s good for business.

“Each sentence has a nugget of truth in it….Jamillah just has a wealth of information.” — Kelle Boyd | Ann Kelle Designs
