Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $49

Hi, I'm Brandon. I grew up in Dallas and moved to the Northeast to fence for Princeton. The snow still tickles me, at least when it's falling. On the ground is a different story, full of clumps and brown spots, but that doesn't keep me from living in and loving Philadelphia. This city. So bullish.

I am a writer and strategist, a published ghostwriter and poet. In the last 5 years, my BA in Comparative Literature has applied to the private sector, specifically those markets and individuals undergoing the most rapid change, such as B2B, IT,...

Service Description

content and landing pages, case studies, email marketing, and blogging. I work extensively with graphic designers to produce articles that pop.Editing and graphics are handled by a small group of contractors, but every word starts with me. I value long-term clients, and if at all possible I start with a conference call. I learn about you, the market, customers and how you differentiate. Then I revise my estimate if necessary.

Entrepreneurs, encyclopedias and consultancies also hire me to research, process, and present information. My writing and research has gone into Gale Business Encyclopedias, such as the Business Insights: Global Edition and Encyclopedia of Electronic Commerce. Consultancies have used my qualitative analysis to strengthen their assessments of markets and competitors, such as Obamacare on the Healthcare Industry, or video conferencing technology on Operations consultants serving Financial Services Institutions.

My team is available for web design projects, SEO, and digital strategy consulting, as well. If you have any questions, please send a message to learn more.
