Content Management for Urbansider

After first being invited to do a takeover on their Instagram account, I spoke with Urbansider’s founder about their forthcoming Paris city guide website. It turned out they were in need of someone to write, edit, and manage all the content in English.

It was a natural fit! I’ve now been working with them for over three years masterminding their content on both social media and on, which launched in January 2019.

My mission has evolved a lot since then, and now along with editing and writing articles about Parisian life and coordinating a team of freelance writers (and managing the content budget), I’m also working on a complete redo of the website including an extensive SEO overhaul in collaboration with a local Paris SEO agency.

You can see all the articles and reviews I’ve written on my Urbansider author page.
