Service Description

Use Sure Words for all words. My specialties include:

-E-Commerce Product Descriptions-
Compelling, original product descriptions -- this is what your e-commerce site needs. I write smart, carefully crafted stories that speak to your shopper in a way that the typical "sales-y" description does not.

-Web Content-
Understanding how your audience reads on the web is my secret to writing productive website content. I keep it clean, concise, and artfully search engine optimized.

-Marketing Collateral-
Leave your marketing copywriting to a professional. Why? Copywriting in-house can be a major drain on productivity and resources. You focus on business, and I'll do the writing. I especially excel at 'broad-spectrum' collateral for small businesses: Complete campaigns that utilize all mediums including ad copy, brochures, product write-ups, landing pages, and press releases. Need a single project? No problem. I'll ensure that small jobs always fit into your overall vision.

-Blogging-
It takes a special voice to keep your audience coming back again and again. Blogging is about creating a community around your business, product, or idea. I write blog posts that intrigue and inspire so that they can become yet another tool for the success of your business.

-Articles-
Having written hundreds of published articles ranging from 200 to 2,000 words, article writing is not only my specialty, it's second nature. I always write with audience and bottom line in mind.
