Based in Oxford, Mississippi, Amanda Brandon has more than 13 years of experience as a marketing communications writer and brand journalist. This writer knows how to help you shine on the page and screen.
My work has involved a major academic healthcare brand development and launch, a national PR campaign, and multi-channel content strategy and development for contractors, real estate investors, business coaches, pizzeria owners, restaurants, financial planners, high tech companies and even a few nonprofits. I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism and PR from The University of Mississippi.

Gained National Media Attention
Conducted national media campaign for the U.S. Pizza Team that resulted in 100+ news articles and multiple television appearances including the Best Damned Sports Show Period!, Ellen, Life & Style, Nickelodeon and Cold Pizza on Fox Sports. Rumor has it, I’m also in the documentary Pizza: The Movie. I’ve seen a few clips on the trailer. Watch it here to see how much fun PR can be.
When people ask me what I do all day, some days my response is, “I write e-mails. All day.” Not to my mom, but campaigns, newsletters, sales nurturing to help you convey brilliance. Plus, I’ve written my fair share of landing pages, video scripts and online display ads to complete the message.
Editorial Drill Sergeant
I spent three years managing editorial content for two international pizza trade publications online and offline. I spent another half-decade managing communications for a major academic healthcare brand and a leading software company. I’ve edited books, ebooks, web seminars, audio scripts, courses and a number of newsletters and articles. I can help you find the holes and adjust the tone to go from “getting there” to relevant and memorable.
For a Good Cause
Every professional should support the good causes trying to save the world. I worked in this area as a marketing rep and writer. Still do. I’ve managed a blog on nonprofit marketing (now defunct), edited a nonprofit newsletter and served on the communications team at my church.
Every marketer loves a well-executed event. Not everyone has time for all the communications. I’ve planned dozens of events and the communications that make them successful. My experience includes trade shows, career fairs, brand launch, donor recognition, symposiums, recruitment events and receptions.
