Service Description

I joined Elance in 2001. Happy clients quickly became regular buyers and filled my schedule. As some of those clients have now been able to retire, I'm hoping that my decade of freelance writing experience can help more people grow their businesses.

My fields include:

Ghostwriting
I've ghostwritten books, ebooks and articles on topics that range from bonsai-growing to business-building. One book written for a client on Elance became a New York Times and Businessweek bestseller, enabling him to build a career as a professional speaker.

Blog Content
I've produced regular blog content for software companies, consultancies and popular content sites.

Newsletters
As a former US correspondent for a UK financial newsletter, I understand the importance of distilling news into a format that's easy to read and targeted to a specialist audience. I've been producing one business newsletter for an Elance client every month for more than ten years.

Press Releases
I write a newsletter for an Elance client that teaches business owners how to use press releases to win publicity. I also write releases that don't make announcements; they deliver news.

Copywriting
I've written sales letters and Web copy, home pages and marketing emails that generated CTRs of over 20 percent.

So how can I help you?
