Barbara Sturm

Generating leads with engaging and inspirational SEO-focused content

I am a Smart Blogger Certified Content Marketing SEO Writer based in the Dallas area with over twenty years of business experience as a developer, data analyst, and project manager.  As a baby boomer, I have an active interest in writing, health, wellness, and the fine art of aging gracefully. 

My inspirational content is written with SEO strategies and tactics that work to rank high in Google keyword searches and attract and connect engaged readers with my clients. I specialize in writing engaging, well-researched articles on topics related to aging, parenting/grandparenting,  the art of writing, travel, time management, arts and crafts, and interior design.

Here's what client Kevin J. Duncan, Editor-in-Chief at had to say:

"Barbara Sturm makes my job easier. She writes with personality, creating solid, engaging content that’s both educational and entertaining. I highly recommend her."

Memory expert and creator of the Magnetic Memory Method, Dr. Anthony Metivier said:

"Barbara is a talented content expert who blends powerful research with clear and precise writing. She’s mastered more than sentences, but also the structure of entire pieces that flow. One of her articles for me hit page one in less than two weeks and we’re already working together on more keywords. I highly recommend working with her for your projects."

C. W. at said:

"I loved how Barbara made our city come alive in her comprehensive "things to do" guide. Even I fell in love with my hometown again!"
