Kaïa Kirkbride, Copywriter for small-businesses & non-profits

Hey there! 

I’m a Portland-based copywriter with a background in marketing, e-commerce, small business management, and creative writing. My specialty is turning raw facts into engaging content bursting with personality.

I write copy for various purposes, including social media posts, blog posts, newsletters, email campaigns, websites (landing and interior pages), and print collateral.

My writing achievements include:

  • 7+ years of professional marketing experience
  • 2 years of copywriting experience
  • Sharing marketing tips via social media that promoted Fab Brands’ services and increased page reach by 121%
  • Helping non-profits effectively articulate their cause and secure donations
  • Writing weekly social media posts for tap room to increase social media engagement by 443%
  • Writing monthly newsletters for a Realtor that received an above average open rate of 37.6% 
  • Securing Tom James an additional 52k in profits from push marketing emails that promoted a trunk show sale event
  • Sigma Tau Delta 2nd Place Award for Creative Writing in 2011
  • Writing 10+ original novels in my free-time.

My passion for writing runs deep, and I have been writing for fun since childhood. 

What do I value most in my writing? Transparency and authenticity. I believe that connecting with your audience through shared values, truthful messaging, and transparent practices is the key to effective engagement and brand loyalty. That is why I love writing for non-profits and other community driven small businesses. By helping them authentically speak their truth, I help them make the world a better place. Too cheesy? Well, too bad! 

How do I write effective copy? I’m a bit of a data nerd. As the daughter of a data analyst, I enjoy gathering all those nuggets of information to write well-informed, meaningful copy that engages your audience. 

When I’m not writing professionally or for fun, you may find me:

  • Savoring a good cup of coffee
  • Walking my cat in Forest Park
  • Caring for my many house plants
  • Hiking the beautiful Pacific Northwest
  • Treasure hunting in a thrift store
  • Traveling to some far off place.
