Overview

Dear client,

Thank you for your interest in my services.

I was probably born writing. My career goal is to provide value to the community through my gift of words (and perhaps of the gab), a goal that websites like Elance are greatly facilitating.

But by now, you must be wondering whether I can actually write a pertinent question indeed. Answer: Not only can I write in all mediums, I can also copy-edit. Don't take my word for it - have a look at my portfolio and judge for yourself.

I received excellent training as a communications...

Content Writing

Service Description

If I am providing you with content, I take the time to fully understand your objectives. Once the brief becomes clear, I research industry best practices, brainstorm design ideas and devise a content plan for your approval.

I then like to turn the precedent on its head. When your audience is up to their eyeballs in information, boring collaterals will sink without a trace. However, if a system has been consistently delivering results, I don't believe in reinventing the wheel until the time is right.

I then draft and redraft creative copy, absorbing feedback along the way. I believe it is vital to communicate clearly at this stage.

If I am editing, I request up-to-date background information on the subject matter or resources where I can get the same. I read the submitted material to a) familiarize myself with the writer's style and b) the structure of the piece. I then submit one copy with proofreading marks and suggested changes and another with the changes absorbed.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I hope we can do business together in the future.
