It is no secret that Digital Marketing Strategy is my passion. But I am a word lover since childhood. So most probably, you will find me either reading or writing something every single day. Due to the fact that business copywriting is an over full-time responsibility and most of my clients want fresh content every day, my hours are 60% dedicated to content creation.
I published 3.650 new website+blog posts throughout 2017. And … 14.650 original social media posts. At the same time, I was actively blogging on different platforms such as Medium, Pulse, Quora etc
Won’t get into the trouble to count the day-in-day-out digital community communication (comments, answers, groups interaction, emails) for all client’s accounts and my personal ones. Limitless… countless… and surprisingly very productive!
Get a good look at this: 1.825.000 words were typed and published by my hands. Quite a number, right?
- Websites+Blogs words: 1.825.000
- Social Media words: 735.500
- Writing on demand (white paper) + newspapers: 15.000
- Extras: copywriting in 4 different languages – English, Greek, French, Italian
- Digital Strategy Plans (I do not dare to count these hours)
New book in progress: 127.500 words
Created and edited 10.950 new photos & graphic design assets.
3650 hours every year. That means 10 hours per day.

My Personal Tribute to Dyslexia
None of the above would be possible without the support of my family and my excellent working team. I am really grateful that I was lucky enough to have so loving and thoughtful people around me.
Allow me this post to support all people out there that are fighting dyslexia like me since childhood. My life story and all the accomplishments, that today are part of my life, is a living proof that even with all odds against a person’s potential there is absolutely nothing that he/she can’t reach and conquer.
My teachers and almost all doctors used to advise my parents not to expect anything great from me due to my severe dyslexia issue. “This child is destined to wash cars or clean houses. Is literally incapable to write even her name correctly. This child is a lost cause. Will never learn to use words properly.”
My name is Areti Vassou and despite my struggle with dyslexia – since the first day I learned to use words – today and 1.825.000 words later (only for the year 2017), I am in the position to be able to shout out loud to everyone:
You can do anything you want in life!
Commit yourself and keep trying!
Special Thank you Notes
Grammarly App is my digital angel and all published dictionaries are my safe place. It may takes me twice as much time to write each paragraph, but I do write and speak 6 languages. Infographics made with Canva.
