Zanate Ventures is a content strategy and ghostwriting consultancy helping solopreneurs and small business owners build greater awareness and drive more organic leads.

Why You're Here

If you're reading this, you're experiencing one of these four situations:

  • 1. I'm trying to create content, but when I write, it doesn't authentically sound like me.

  • 2. Other people make content creation seem easy, and it isn't an easy process for me.

  • 3. Other people seem to find ideas with no problem and create new content consistently.

  • 4. I don't have the time to dedicate to content creation. I know it's something I should be doing, but I'm too busy as a solopreneur or small business owner wearing all the hats to get it done..

If this is gnawing away at you, I understand.

The good news is, there's a solution.

How I Help You

Hi, y'all - My name is Kris Hughes, and I'm the Founder of Zanate Ventures.

Zanate is Spanish for grackle. Grackles are relentless, driven and scrappy birds that are everywhere here in Austin.

All traits I closely identify with, hence the name.

After over a decade in content creation and marketing, I've been in your shoes and I empathize. I'm also a solopreneur building a business, so I've encountered the challenges you're facing.

I founded Zanate Ventures to make these challenges less daunting.

As a content strategist and ghostwriter, my job is to understand your voice. To get inside your head (not in a creepy way) and understand how you think, and how you communicate what you're thinking.

Then translate that thought process into consistent content that's authentic, impactful, and actionable for your target readers, who one day will become your ideal clients.

Over time we'll build a powerful awareness engine that fosters awareness, drives you organic leads, and makes content an ally fueling your growth.

Sounds interesting, Kris. How do things work exactly?

Glad you asked!

There are four ways in which I work with clients.


  • Coaching - We meet together once per week to discuss a plan of attack to build your presence on LinkedIn and lay the groundwork for success. You do the heavy lifting of content creation and marketing and we revisit what's working well, what isn't, and where improvements can be made.

  • Batch Content Creation - You provide me with a high-level overview of the content you'd like to have available to promote and I get to work, creating 30 unique pieces of social media content for you to share in the next calendar month. I deliver these weekly, or in one batch for you to use in the next month.

  • Collaborative Content Services - I share the heavy lifting and post content for you 3 days a week, and you take care of the rest. I also help with interaction in your niche to help you build the presence needed for your content to succeed.

  • Done For You Content Services - I do it all! I adopt your voice. Interact as you on LinkedIn and other social mediums. Post content as you, and respond as you to comments you receive. I'm your ghostwriter from start to finish. Five days a week, Monday through Friday.

Client Logos Should Go Here - But I'm a Ghostwriter, After All

Since I'm a ghostwriter, I can't share with you who my clients are. I respect the privacy of my clients, but I'd be happy to share some examples with you privately, and hook you up with a reference if you'd like.
