Being an ELANCE member for three years has afforded many opportunities to assist numerous clients across the globe. Fulfilling their requirements has steadily improved my ability to understand and respond to a broad range of visions and objectives. The focus, to deliver a polished, professional project, assists my clients by optimizing the profile they wish to achieve in order to deliver primed candidates for business. Working on the internet requires an extensive knowledge of consumer attitudes and behavior and, consistently updating this knowledge means clients receive the benefit of advanced professional advice. I include my ELANCE resume with every proposal, paired with my Marketing portfolio, as appropriate, and welcome a buyer's request for additional information. It has been my pleasure to assist several clients frequently, over time, which allows me to become familiar with their business and able to fine-tune my approach to better serve them.
My educational background in Architecture, Commercial Art, Creative Non-Fiction, Business and Poetry writing serves your project with an array of skills and knowledge to bring an edge to my writing with a strategy designed to distinguish your position in the marketplace.
WRITING evolves from the objectives you outline and my ability to apply them in an effective communication strategy. Professional experience and original artistry treat your objectives with a clear approach, employing:
--innovative and comprehensive marketing techniques
--creative writing styles that resonate with your audience
--subtly embedded SEO keywords to achieve top-ranked search positions for increased traffic flow.
--all stemming from a clear idea of the direction you want to take your business.
Whether a broad or narrow niche, your targeted market segment will feel the benefit of the message you want to convey with an approach that supports ideas and resonates with clients. They'll want to talk with you.
My formal training, in creative non-fiction and copy writing, has served clients in a wide range of projects that prove my ability to take on challenges and deliver a solution that pleases them.
Prior to achieving an architectural degree, my university education included commercial design training.
Moreover, my experience as a sole proprietor architect has given me insight, regarding the challenges of operating a small business, as well as an ability to discover how clients'/customer's visualize their ideal solution and reasons to engage.
It is customary for me to collect competitive and proprietary research as a platform from which to develop a marketing strategy.
Successful marketing strategies yield high level results. Marketing strategies have proven most effective when based on a client's USP (Unique Selling Proposition)--a brief statement designed to brand a business that connects with customers. Utilizing the USP throughout my writing ultimately leads to customer/client-benefit recognition. SEO is a natural by-product of my writing, as well as used directly at my client's request.
My list of accomplishments on Elance commends me to a variety of experiences with wide-ranging business and academic projects. Those subjects, with which I have had no experience, have been approached with a thorough investigation before attempting to proceed with the project.
Many clients, with whom I've enjoyed a successful outcome, have returned for additional services. I have worked with several clients for a period of six months or more.
The opportunity to work with U. S. and global clients is exciting and continues to engage my interest. I look forward to many years of serving Elance clients.

Performed architectural services for Federal, State, local authorities, as well as commercial and residential clients. After undergoing 3 major surgeries, I could no longer fulfill the physical demands of an architectural practice. (Long periods of standing, property inspections, roof inspections, etc.) Yes, it was devastating, but I have been substantially compensated with clients' appreciation of the work I do for them.
