We are storytellers committed to sharing what makes your business unique.


Wordsmyth Creative Content Marketing LLC is committed to helping businesses grow by telling compelling stories. Founded by Danielle Smyth in Burnt Hills, New York, in 2017, our agency believes in the power of the written word to convert leads and enhance marketing efforts.


We are a full-service marketing, SEO, and web services firm. Our team of content and technical experts has vast experience with B2B and B2C clients across industries like travel and hospitality, professional services, marketing and advertising, legal, automotive, and retail.


Our talented writers are skilled in crafting the copy that’s right for your niche, and our SEO and web design team will ensure your website and online presence have what it takes to stand out in a crowded marketplace. Contact us today for more information or help with your project.


Though our corporate headquarters are located in upstate New York, our marketing team is fully remote, giving us the flexibility to find only the best staff who can offer the ultimate in service to our clients.


Since we aren't limited by the overhead or constraints of a traditional office, we are able to provide flexible and scalable service at affordable rates. Contact us to see how our services might suit your needs.

Though much of our business is done virtually, we are thrilled to also take on local clients. We provide content marketing services to small businesses and large firms in the Burnt Hills, Clifton Park, Saratoga Springs, Scotia, Schenectady, Rotterdam, Albany, Amsterdam, and Guilderland areas.


We're always thrilled to speak with other business owners and marketing teams in the greater New York State Capital Region who are looking for help with their website content, social media, direct mail materials, or SEO work. Contact us today!
