Owner/Operator, Sage Content Marketing

Shannon Smith

A sage is someone who has wisdom and experience to share with others.

Sage Content Marketing is the culmination of my experience in the marketing departments of a Big Ten university press and a medical malpractice insurance company and my two decades of freelance work as a writer, photographer, and graphic designer. 

As the owner of a small business, I understand the challenges a small business faces in this global internet-driven marketplace. 

Living in rural America, I understand and have a passion for serving small businesses in small towns and rural areas. They want to be able to compete globally, yet maintain their personal connections to each other and serve their customers well with a smile and a handshake.

Tradition, community, and connection to the land matter.

I get that. And that’s why I’m here.


Why Choose Sage Content Marketing?

I understand what business owners in small towns and rural areas need because that’s where I grew up and now live.

I’m not “skinny jeans and mimosas” (though I can pull it off when the situation requires it).

I’m a farm-her who studied journalism and graphic design at University of Central Missouri who loves using her talent to help small businesses in rural and smaller communities thrive.

Personal Service

I get to know you, your vision for your business, and go from there. I'm the only person in this company, so you don't get passed around when you call.

Reasonable Prices

Many of my clients who check out the services of an urban agency before talking with me are shocked at what they charge. They can't afford them.

I understand that. That's why I keep my fees reasonable. I'm not cheap, but I think you'll see you get good value for the work I do.

Over 25 Years of Experience

I've been doing this a while.
