A client once said my writing was "like a breath of fresh air." I can think of no better compliment. The market is fat with copywriters who want your business, but it's tough to find the right combination of talent and work ethic. Whether you need 20 pages of web content, a comprehensive white paper, or just a gripping turn of phrase, you need it done well -- ready to publish, ready to send to clients, ready to start working for you NOW. And you'd prefer a writer who's professional, friendly, and easy to work with. Sound about right? If so,...

Service Description

When every word counts, you don't need a newbie: you need experience, confidence, and proven results. I started WBM after 12 years as a technical and corporate Cincinnati copywriter. My home-based business grew quickly, and today I work with a small team of writers, editors, and data specialists who allow me to maximize my workload without sacrificing the quality of content my clients receive. I still retain a majority of the writing myself, and all projects completed by my team are thoroughly reviewed, edited, and fact-checked by me before they are submitted.

Before launching my freelance business, I spent 5 years as an E-Commerce Content Manager for two major luxury retail websites. Prior to that, I worked as a Technical Writer for a software company, where I created end-user documentation, newsletters, and marketing materials. Now, I'm leveraging my unique mix of skills to provide companies like yours with content that makes customers sit up and take notice.

I can guarantee meticulous accuracy, adherence to your requirements and deadlines, and as much research as necessary to deliver the best possible result for your project.

If you need it, my team and I can write it:

- Product descriptions
- Website copy
- Blogs, articles, reviews, editorial content
- White papers
- SEO meta content
- Newsletters and marketing materials
- MORE!
