Ahoy, there! 👋

OK, you were SUPPOSED to be wowed by the above headline. You know, the one about going from an entrepreneur/creator in your niche to becoming a thought leader (or if you prefer, in-demand public speaker. Or author. Or published expert…or well, you catch my drift) — through the power of authority-building media attention and good PR.  

Then you were SUPPOSED to get all 🤩. And immediately submit your email in the shiny box above to start getting the goods, AKA the “world-famous” Clout Monster newsletter, but…


Maybe this isn’t your first time on a website like this. And you’re a bit skeptical. WHICH IS GOOD…because that’s lesson numero uno in this media business:

“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. And in print, too!


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

Having been an editor and freelance writer, I’ve been on both sides of the publishing table. Also been inside and grown 6-, 7-figure, and even 8-figure online businesses!

From products to outbound marketing like PR, I use this breadth of expertise and knowledge to help a variety 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:

The same philosophies and techniques have been shown and 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. 



If you’re a creator with an online business 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 a story to tell and want to be seen, the Clout Monster team and I can help you find a way into the media. That’s pretty much my thing.

I mean, after all…
