About Us

A Content Marketing Company You Can Trust

Troy and Valerie Mellema founded Words You Want in 2006. For the last 13 years, Words You Want has worked with clients in a wide range of industries, including real estate, dental, legal, health/medical, skin care, IT, auto, pets, livestock, equine, ecommerce, book publishing, senior care and more. 

Our goal has always been to provide well-written, original and informational content that follows the best SEO practices of the time. We have also worked hard to be a content writing company you can trust. So many clients have been burned by companies that outsource to foreign countries, that they don’t trust writers or writing companies. We’ve strived to break that stigma and have done so successfully for many years. While our rates may not always be the cheapest, you do receive what you pay for.

We have also followed and adapted over the years to the multiple changes posed by Google and have worked with clients to overcome those changes and provide content solutions. All the while we have strived to keep our rates competitive  in order to provide clients with the best bang for their buck.
