Service Description

Writing (Cat): I have written countless user guides, manuals, articles, blogs, e-books, web page content for clients such as Nortel, GE, Sony, Panasonic, Dell down to start-ups. I am lead tech writer for www.galaxyweblinks.com, a global web dev/design site for whom I write Case Studies for apps/sites in their extensive portfolio. I create my own ebooks so rapidly and well that I don't charge for this service. Yes, I edit as well.

Writing (Sanjay): also writes for GWL as well as Indian outlets (in English.)

Writing (Mike): superb tech writer, shines at business process writing. Writes for the big boys, rates are commensurate with that.

Writing (Cherokee): prof. accredited journalist. New York Times, Harpers, HuffingtonPost online. She's in the 'if you gotta ask' rate category, obviously.

They can but suggest: it's up to me/the client to implement, then watch over a period of time and decide on changes (if needed.) I use no black-hat techniques. They certainly bump your traffic way up as...
