I live and breathe to connect people through words. But not just any words -- words that explain, intrigue, excite, assure and inspire action. Over 25+ years in marketing copywriting, I've become a word ninja. No one is immune from my mighty pen! One thing I love about oDesk is the opportunity to meet and work with businesses and others (artists, students, professors, authors, etc.) around the world. No matter what you have to say, you'll be more effective with my razor-sharp mind and razor-sharp style leading your messaging charge. For mighty results from my mighty pen, you've definitely come to the right place! Susan Reid/Mighty Pen Writing & Editing "The pen is mighty indeed"
Although I am a academic, copy, content and creative writer my specialty is video script writing- animated, whiteboard, narrated, training and sales. Even though academic and creative writing is based on quality content it is also based on the quantity of words- clients are always seeking a word count. Video script writing requires a completely different process and mindset than academic, copy, content and creative writing. It requires the writer to be able to take a large volume of content and reduce it to a bare minimum word count that can immediately gain a viewers attention and retain it throughout the entire video. The ability to write effective video scripts is skill that cannot be perfected overnight. I pledge to provide my clients with a degree of quality that they will be pleased to call their own. I am self motivated, hard working, detailed oriented, flexible and reliable. I believe that communication is significant in any business relationship. I have found that asking the right questions at the beginning of an assignment ensures that not only will be completed ahead of schedule it will exceed the client’s expectations. My goal is to provide my Odesk clients with exceptional quality at reasonable cost and 100% satisfaction. Not only does a satisfied client leave positive feedback, they are likely to be a repeat client. Each client, no matter the duration or size of the assignment, should be treated with the up most respect. I am seeking to develop long term relationships that will be mutually beneficial for both the client and myself.

Entrepreneurial executive with more than 15 years of experience managing operations, sales, direct response marketing and personnel. Adept at driving growth of company revenues and improving sales-team performance. Exceptional mentor and coach. Tenacious in building new business, securing customer loyalty, and forging strong relationships with external business partners. Big Picture thinker, talented and driven to impact bottom line while ensuring staff compliance with enterprise standards, procedures and regulations.
Every successful business begins with one person and a vision. Inevitably, that vision must segue to a strategic plan and focused execution. This is a space I've successfully lived in for over 20 years. My strengths lie in visionary business planning and strategy. I can take role as an advisor, collaborator, and/or team member to execute plans or strategic initiatives. I develop Business Plans, Strategic Plans, Operational plans, create financials, and help recruit top management. I help clients positively deliver results to their bottom line, take them from "marginal to viable", and often I help position them for a high(er) probability of an 'exit' when the time is right. I help deliver organized, business-focused narratives and messaging that inform internally and to external stakeholders, vendors, clients or investors. Whether a start up, early stage, or middle market, I approach every engagement in the same manner. I first establish an understanding of the business as it exists today. I review the current business structure. I peel back the layers to clearly assess the business, financials, market dynamics, team, and strategy. I look at the business in its current iteration and then sit down with you to discuss both the 'big picture' and what the goal line looks like to you. Early on, we may well reach a point where I share less-than-good news; There's still work to be done. But it is at this point where I see clients reach a level of cognitive realization, who understand and agree with my position or feedback, and that's where things can start to get exciting. Engage me on an initial consultation (no fee) regarding your business goals and strategy. The outcome of that dialogue will tell us both if there's a fit and whether it makes sense to engage in a mutually beneficial relationship to advance your goals. Michael

After 10 years of business and technical writing, I decided it was time to expand my horizons! In 2012, after 3 years of study and training, I transitioned into copywriting. I offer the following copywriting and content services: - web copy (including product descriptions, bio pages, landing or lead capture pages, etc.) - white hat SEO - whitepapers - press releases - ebooks - blogging - social media - and more My background includes process and procedural writing in the area of quality assurance documentation, including fraud, abuse, and waste prevention, document control, and continual improvement, as well as other related areas. I've found this skill set translates well into writing quality copy for my clients. Here are a few more things about me (and how I work) to help you determine if I am a good fit for your job: 1.
