Ahoy, there! 👋

Still curious about me, eh?

🚨 Looks like we’ve got a skeptical one here, folks! 🚨

Maybe this isn’t your first time on a website like this, and you’ve got your BS meter turned on max. WHICH IS GOOD…because that’s lesson numero uno for talking to the press:

“Show me the proof.”

H’okay, then… *pushes glasses up* 🤓

Hi, I’m Stephanie Lee, creator of the site you’re reading now, Clout Monster.

I’ve published literally hundreds upon hundreds of articles on the internet since 2002. From big-time, niche blogs all the way to top-tier mainstream media like The New York Times. And in print, too!


My article in the Sunday paper of The New York Times.

I’ve been on both sides of the publishing table. I’ve been an editor at top publication teams and was a successful freelance journalist. I’ve also been inside and grown 6-, 7-figure, and even 8-figure online businesses!

From building multimillion-dollar products to leading outbound marketing initiatives like PR, I use this breadth of expertise and knowledge to help all kinds of entrepreneurial content creators, influencers, and personality-driven online business owners with media strategy, including helping launch one entrepreneur’s book to the New York Times best-selling list the week of its release:



These same philosophies and techniques have been taught to students and clients to land in top-tier publications:



Even when they had NO idea where to start…



Even when they had NO prior connections…



Then I help turn all of this attention into a tangible impact for your personal brand and online business. 



So if you’re a personality-driven business (e.g. author, coach, course biz, freelancer, creator, etc.) and want more media attention that can translate to more opportunities and growth in your business, this is my sweet spot.

No matter what industry you’re in, as long as you have SOMETHING to say (and let’s be honest, at least want to be a LITTLE famous ;)), we can help you find a way into the media. 

That’s pretty much our thing. 

Feel free to poke around the site, but to really get a feel for us, I encourage you to try the Clout Monster newsletter (sign up in the box further below), just to get a taste of what we can do.
