Trust Blue Coast Media Group to execute every assignment professionally and on time.
Googled yourself lately? Do you show up on searches related to your field? Many professionals realize they need to be published, both on their own sites and in busier media sites. You have the knowledge but not the time to write. We are professional writers who can place "your" columns in targeted media.
Ghostwriting and Profiles
We specialize in writing for you -- that's ghostwriting, an element of thought leadership. We also write informed, in-depth profiles on you and people important to clients and readers. Our well-written profiles can be repurposed for everything from a newsletter article to a Wikipedia entry to a corporate profile.
What will amplify your brand while making your customer look forward to hearing from you? An eBook of recipes or fashion tips? A magazine curating news and social media posts of interest to them? A monthly newsletter sharing trends in their field? We will create the perfect vehicle to generate leads.
Your thought leadership, social media and email newsletters build relationships and bring visitors to your website. Does what they find enhance your online reputation? We can create a WordPress site like this one in one week or partner with your developer to refine and restock your existing site.
Here's where we give you high credibility: combing your post, newsletter, publication and site for errors while powering up your language. A lot of people can write but are just too busy to review structure, grammar, spelling and facts. We've got you covered. We even know AP Style from Chicago.
We are experienced, respected journalists with high standards who are determined to help our clients succeed in their business with topnotch wordcraft in everything from letters to presentations to websites to videos to newsletters. Great communication is the key to great relationships.
Expert Story Telling
Have you told your story? Do you know it? Our journalists have had thousands of articles published on business, real estate, sports (especially golf), wine and food, fashion, architecture, design, furniture, shopping, consumer issues, law, travel, arts, health, fitness, wellness and tech.
Attention to Voice
We aspire to connect you to your audience, so we will advise you on which tools are effective in building your online presence. Then, we will use a jargon-free voice that will resonate with your desired reader, client or customer – from B2B to B2C, corporate to small business, 80-something to 20-something.
We will customize to meet your needs. Here are a few examples.

WHAT WE KNOW
We know we don't know everything, so we aren't shy about asking questions. Here are some of our favorite topics.
Keith DuBay challenges clients to exhibit thought leadership by differentiating from the crowd. In collaboration with them, he has written on commercial real estate, financial reporting, taxes, cyber-security, accounting, energy, mining, enterprise risk, banking, investment management, personal finance, renewable energy and transportation.
Lifestyle and Leisure
Susan Fornoff covered sports for USA Today; baseball and fitness for the Sacramento Bee; real estate, golf, home & garden, consumer issues, design and travel for the San Francisco Chronicle. She has written magazine articles on subjects ranging from ADHD to golf fashion to the fate of brick-and-mortar retail.
Golf and Sports
Susan and Keith have collaborated on Susan's GottaGoGolf.com and GottaGoGolfMag.com content, which includes fashion, resorts, equipment and advice. Susan's years in sports make her something of an insider, and in 2014 she created a profile that helped a baseball star secure a $95 million contract.
