Service Description

My writing services and skills:

I provide both rate x hours and fixed-fee writing services. Often, clients engage me to provide communication and messaging strategy development expertise prior to development of their written intellectual property.

Whereas many writers focus on journalistic and blogging-style work, I focus almost exclusively on "front line" business writing.

My writing projects are designed to position my clients with competitive advantages, gain business revenue, and secure investment wins.

My writing skills span a broad range of writing venues, but the bottom line is the bottom line: my clients engage me to produce business wins for them--not just paper filled with words.

Technical writing.
Examples: IT solution "one-pagers" and SME-class white papers.

Business copy writing.
Examples: case studies, business marketing materials, and corporate communication documents.

Business plan development.
Examples: custom-developed pieces that include "financial analytics" based upon sources-and-uses of cash modeling.

Angel Investor prospectus development.
Custom-developed pieces that include deep market / competitive research.

Website content design and development.
Corporate grade website content, often front-ended by core website structure and messaging strategy development.

Areas I usually do not engage in writing work:

Video scripting, journalistic articles, and book writing.
