Web Pages need to be SEO friendly, descriptive and written in easy to understand language. Mike's writing is perfect for this.

However, the writing still matters most, which Mike can provide.
Mike's ability to write in a journalistic tone is perfect for press releases. He has written a few for upcoming television shows that are both informative and full of descriptive language. Writing a press release is not just about presenting the facts of that particular piece of information, but also about conveying the mission statement of that particular industry through strong, concise language.
