Our Story

Colwell Creative got its start in 2012 in Upstate New York.

Our founder and CEO, Nicole, had just quit a thankless job and was looking for a way to bring in some money so she could be a stay-at-home mom. One day in early March, she got an email from a company that she had applied to write website content for five years prior. The company encouraged her to write an article, but she wasn’t 100% convinced it wasn’t a scam. So, she decided to write one small article that paid $3.56. Then she waited to see if the company would pay her for her work.

About a week later, that small payment arrived, and Nicole realized that she had been given a golden opportunity to do what she loved more than anything in the world – write. And not just write, but get paid for writing.

Nicole continued to write when she had a few moments to spare, and in a few months, she had built up a small list of clients. By November, she decided to turn her freelancing gig into a business as the clients continued to come in.

In 2019, Colwell Creative Content began experiencing tremendous growth. the company brought on four writers, and as they say, the rest is history.

By 2022, Colwell Creative Content became Colwell Creative Content, Inc. The agency had an ever-increasing roster of clients and more than 30 professionals who specialize in SEO, writing website content, editing, website design, social media management, and many other services.

In 2024, God laid it on Nicole’s heart to pivot the business to focus on ghostwriting, editing, publishing, and author promotion almost exclusively. As a result, the company transitioned to Colwell Creative with a new mission, vision, and goal to partner with established and new authors to help bring their books to the world.
