I Believe

I used to promote products. Now I promote people. I've gone from making a living to making a difference.

About Kate Houston

From making a living to making a difference
For years, I used my writing and marketing talents to promote products. Two years ago I lost my job, but ended up in the most privileged position imaginable. I launched a profile writing service for singles dating online. In doing so I discovered that putting a positive spin on how people present themselves, inevitably puts a positive spin on how they see themselves.

Suddenly, I went from making a living to making a difference.

I’ve had an abused woman tell me that I made her feel proud of herself again. The mother of a client wrote, “I never believed anyone could sum up my daughter’s beauty the way you have”. A man still in the throes of divorce wrote, “You make me feel worth it.”

Guest appearances
I’ve been a guest on King 5 TV,  NPR’s Marketplace, as well as a number of other shows, providing audiences with solid marketing tips to help them stand out in the competitive environment of online dating.

I've been an ad writer and marketing expert for 20 years. I launched trysweettalk.com – one of the only profile writing services in North America to write dating profiles based on marketing principles.

As a profile writer, I've helped everyone from young military men to recently divorced seniors get back in the market. Who knew that my skill for selling products could transform my life and maybe even others!


I've won Lotus, Marketing and Radio Marketing awards for my print and broadcast work. Before immersing myself in marketing, I wrote celebrity interviews and profiles for radio personalities. By combining my talents in advertising and PR, I've become one of the nation’s best profile writers.

Whether you're trying to compete on a dating site or on LinkedIn, a profile written with marketing savvy will give you a powerful advantage.

Please have a look at http://trysweettalk.com/. It has credentials, samples of my work, a blog, as well as shows on which I was a guest. You'll also find a fun personality quiz. Though it's completely free, it's an important first step in making your dating profile unique.
