Jordan Rogers


Hi,

I’m Jordan Rogers and I’m a professional tech writer, analyst and digital publisher. I write, report, edit, analyze and build digital publications—I’ve created and developed local media outlets like RaleighCo.com, WCHL.com, and consulted and/or worked full time on established brands WRAL.com, TechWire.com and ExitEvent.com—at the writer, managing editor, analytics, technical and marketing levels.

I’ve worked as an analytics lead and strategist at WRAL.com, WCHL.com, RaleighCo.com, ExitEvent.com, as well as in the digital firm and agency spaces for companies like Cree, Sierra Club, DirecTV, Normacorc, and Three Ships. I’ve written and analyzed at Public Policy Polling and have a background in analytics and academic editing. I also develop really cool SEO research for publishing companies, universities and corporate websites.

You may remember me from such viral internet sensations as TwitterBracket.com, TheBlackFalcon.net, SportsChannel8, Dollars4Ballers, the world’s most popular ginger ale fan website, and/or TarheelDepot.

I’ll work or consult on any interesting projects, I’m active with nonprofits and love donating my time and expertise, just ask!

Some highlights of my writing:
