Dawn Allcot is a full-time freelance writer, editor and social media specialist whose goal is to help small business owners make more money through Web-based marketing.
After a strong history in technology trade magazines, about a decade ago Dawn sought to “write for publications that everyone knows.” Since then, her work has appeared on websites such as AOL Careers, the Verizon website, Yahoo! HotJobs, the AMEX Forum, Mint.com, Care.com, Chase.com, and in Bella – NYC magazine. She has also ghostwritten stories for Huffington Post and a host of other sites.
Her impressive client list, over the years, has included top content and editorial firms such as IdeaLaunch, Stream Companies, Clearlink, SocialMoxy, IHS/GlobalSpec, and Prose Media. She is the former Social Media Strategist at Crestron Electronics. Currently, she holds the title of Social Media Specialist with KMB Communications, a strategic communications, copywriting, content creation, SEO, and social media marketing firm, and is also part of a competent, confident, and conscientious team of writers at Gina LaGuardia Editorial Services.
Dawn Allcot specializes in taking complex, technical topics and making them easy for audiences to understand. She also has a knack for providing lifestyle advice in accessible, friendly terms that seeks to inform and entertain, never talking down to readers.
Some of her favorite markets to cover include: Audio Visual Technology, Home Automation, Finance, Moving, Small Business Marketing, Parenting & Pregnancy, Senior Care, Home Improvement & Design, Careers and much more. She has written about subjects as diverse as dental care, eye care, automotive mechanics, and accounting.
Dawn lives on Long Island with her husband, two children and three annoying but lovable “furry babies” (cats). In her spare time, she likes reading business and marketing books, bicycling and shopping. She spends too much time on Facebook and Twitter and not enough time cleaning the house. If you live on Long Island’s South Shore, you may spot her sipping a Mudslide and watching her kids play at the Venetian Shores sprinkler park during the summer. She is probably simultaneously monitoring social media accounts on her iPhone or outlining her next blog post.
