    I provide freelance editing services at an affordable rate with quick turnaround. I specialize in making your writing clear, concise, and easy to follow. No matter your audience, you are more likely to achieve your objective with error-free and concise text. I'll be glad to proofread your work, but you probably have a friend that can do that... my true talent is in showing you how to better communicate with fewer words and more logical flow. Referral from a GA State MBA Student: "Jacki Flynn is an extremely talented editor/proofreader. While completing graduate school, Jacki very thoroughly edited several of my MBA team's papers (all more than 30 pages, patched together with content from different team members). With quickly approaching deadlines, Jacki was always very happy to help and turned around extremely high quality editing very quickly, within a few hours if needed! From New Business Plans, to Communication Audit Reports, to a Legal term paper on International IP Cases, Jacki quickly understood the topic at hand and was able to edit while keeping the content accurate. I would absolutely recommend Jacki for your editing needs!"  less

    My name is John Reisinger and I specialize in compelling, hype-free website, sales page, email marketing and direct response copy. My heart-based approach positions you as a go-to authority in your niche, while dramatically increasing sales -- without ever having to compromise your values. My track record includes: ... Sales page for real estate investment guru. $120,300 net profit in 4 days. ... Landing Page and Membership Sign Up. 25% sign ups and 33% conversion. ... Direct response sales letter. $957,600 for new product in 10 months. ... Sales page and emails. 6.03% conversion for author’s first paid coaching offering. ... Website rewrite. 50% more calls for pet coaching without changing PPC ads. ... Website, branding, sales emails. 27% more sign ups for free MBA assessment. ... Landing Page and PPC ads. 5.39% of people convert into clients for Doctor. .... Sales rollout emails. 6% response— in new orders for ebook conversion service. ... PPC ad campaign. 164% increase in CTR versus old ads for ADA signage company. I am a rare copywriter in that I have consistently earned 6-figures in commission only sales prior to unearthing my love for copywriting. While my sales experience and 6 years of studying and teaching Conscious Communication is the foundation for me compassionately connecting with people with originality, consistency and clear calls to action, I don't rely on this alone. I am also a graduate of AWAIs Copywriting and Email Marketing programs, and a top PPC writer for BoostCTR.com. This alchemy of experience allows the words on your website, sales pages and email marketing campaigns to be as effective as you personally having a heart to heart talk with every reader about what is really troubling them. Thus leaving them feeling deeply understood, and naturally ready to solve their problems with the help of your product or service. Typically, 2 or more of these things are important to my clients: 1) They are passionate, innovative Entrepreneurs with established websites and email lists (often with several thousand subscribers). Now they want help growing and profiting from that list through more high-trust emails and offers. 2) They often have tried, through costly trial and error, to write their own copy. Now they’re looking for a go-to copywriter they can rely on to revive and launch new offerings. 3) They want and need results, without using methods that bully people to buy or border on sleazy behavior. If you're serious about building high-trust relationships with your new and potential customers that DRAMATICALLY increases sales and conversions then let's talk about your unique needs. I provide a holistic marketing and sales approach in all aspects of internet and direct response marketing related to: - Finding and communicating your uniqueness (branding) - Long and short sales copy for internet / print - Newsletter/ Autoresponder email series - Sales follow up / Lead generation strategies - Information product creation / product funnels - Video sales letters/ scripts - PPC ads for Google and Facebook - Selling of self improvement / personal development products - Information product creation (books, courses, seminars, workshops) - Marketing strategy & implementation - Website and PPC Conversion Performance Improvement - Online and Direct Response sales letter layout design ** I'm also a whiz with designing, writing and executing email marketing campaigns using software like Awebber, OfficeAutoPilot and Infusionsoft.  less
