I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

An Australian copywriter with over 14 years’ experience, I got my first full-time agency position when renowned advertising profile Steve Trygg saw the work I was doing whilst studying at Berghs School of Communication, one of Europe’s foremost marketing academies. Steve immediately offered me employment at his B2B agency SandbergTrygg, at whose European headquarters I then worked in parallel with my copywriting studies. This was way back in 2001. Covering quite technical accounts in the telecommunications, trucking and stock-trading industries, I stayed with SandbergTrygg until relocating to Cairns in 2003. Adpower Plus, at the time North Queensland’s largest advertising agency, then employed me to service their clients – a mix of B2B and B2C companies and organisations, including Stockland Shopping Centres, Pacific Toyota, Medtel, Tourism Tropical North Queensland and Cairns Convention Centre, to name a few. Having made my mark on the Queensland market, I proceeded to go international with my own business in 2006 and have since worked for clients ranging from large corporations and organisations such as Rio Tinto, City West Water and the Maavarim Group to smaller outfits such as Zimperium Technologies, Enteract and Joolca. This has involved research, analysis, conceptualisation, copywriting and creative direction for numerous very different products. In other words: I’m equally at home advertising fast-moving products in the Western retail market as I am selling hospital equipment to African governments. Every last bit of my creative is built on solid research. Simply put, I not only come up with HOW to convey your message; I also provide the strategy required to decide WHAT to say. Since 2011, I am based out of Melbourne, where I run the strategic marketing agency Plant Advertising. And it’s only now that this piece of text is going to get truly valuable to you, because, for all that I’ve told you above, what really matters is how good my actual copy is, right? So, check out the work samples at www.plantadvertising.com or have a look in the special Dropbox folder that I’ve prepared for oDesk clients at http://bit.ly/1t95lkB Remember, whatever copywriter you end up selecting for your project, the whole point of creative is to increase sales or otherwise convince your target group of this, that or the other – and far from all copy does that. Bottom line: if you’re going to compromise on your marketing, you might as well not do it at all. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Paul Walden

If you’re doing business online but aren’t working with a professional copywriter, I guarantee you’re leaving money on the table... Let me show you... “How You Can Add An Endless Stream Of Cash-In-Hand Customers To Your Business Without Spending A Penny More On Advertising” My name’s Joe Atkins. I’m a professional copywriter and one of oDesk’s top-ranked, and most recommended freelancers. As well as being a student of AWAI’s Copywriting Masters program, I’ve also spent hundreds of hours learning from direct-response copywriting legends such as: Gary Halbert, Bob Bly, John Carlton, Dan Kennedy, Clayton Makepeace... just to name a few. Copywriting is not just my job. It’s a passion that I live and breathe. And thanks to the experience I’ve gained, my results have been stellar... * A sales letter I wrote for a dog grooming company brought in 33 new long-term clients, resulting in over $62,000 in revenue the same year. * An email series I wrote in the internet marketing niche brought in $23,000 during a five-day promo. * One client experienced a 20% increase in sales after I rewrote their website content. * A sales letter a client paid me $250 to write has brought him over $35,000 in sales in one year. To put it briefly: If you want a sales letter that generates a massive amount of sales... webcopy so compelling readers can’t take their eyes off the page... and emails that convert like crazy, then you’ve come to the right place. Stop fumbling around in the dark playing the guessing game, changing your website, then guessing again. There are better - more effective - ways to spend your time and money... ... After all, the more time you burn trying to get it right, the more money that slips between your fingers. Let a tried-and-tested, sales producing copywriter handle your copy... it’s the smart thing to do (that’s if you’re serious about your business). Why You Should Hire Me To Write Your Sales Copy ************************************************************************************************************ "Once again Joe over delivered! I have paid 5x as much for sales letters that don't even come close to the quality of Joe's! The best copywriter on oDesk period." -- Jeff Brokaw ************************************************************************************************************ * I’m deadly serious about copywriting. It’s my livelihood and passion. I’ve invested both time and money into learning my craft and keeping up to date with current selling strategies. * I’ve built a rock-solid reputation on oDesk as a top copywriter, and if you think I’d jeopardize it by producing sloppy work for you, you’re crazy! (Fun fact: I’ve never had a dissatisfied client. Not one. Check my feedback.) * My skillset is not limited to writing copy. I’m also trained in creating profit-pulling sales funnels (so you can maximise the amount you make per customer), and mapping out product launches. Here’s how we’ll work together to transform your site into a profit generating machine... 1. Contact me. Send me a message here on oDesk and let me know what you need and when you need it by. I’ll slot you into my schedule and give you a completion date - typically 5 - 10 days, depending on how big the project is and my current workload. If you need a job completed urgently (within 3 days), then I can do this for a 50% surcharge... ... I charge more for urgent jobs because I have postpone other paying projects, work nights/weekends, or spend time away from my family. 2. Provide me with requisite information. I’ll need access to your product and current marketing material if you have any. If not, I’ll send you a client questionnaire that, once filled out, will provide me with everything I need to get started. 3. Make your first payment. You submit 50% of the agreed fee upfront. 4. Relax while I take care of things. Once I’ve received the information I need and the upfront fee, I’ll begin working. I’ll pore over what you’ve sent me, and begin researching your target audience in great detail. This includes: dissecting ads that have been previously successful, monitoring online forums where your market congregates, so I can learn the jargon they use and familiarize myself with their pain and frustrations, coming up with new ideas to grab their attention and gain their loyalty for your company. Once I’ve completed my research, I’ll begin writing your sales material. 5. First draft & final payment. I’ll send you the first draft and you’ll send me the other 50% of my fee. My service comes with two rounds of revisions, free of charge, so this is where you’ll let me know whether you want anything tweaking. 6. Profit! Now, as my profile is so highly ranked on oDesk, I receive job invitations on a daily basis. As a result, my schedule can get very busy, so I’d urge you to contact me today if you’d like to work with me. Get in touch. Your bank account will thank you later. Joe
