Could another pair of hands and a little more brain power help relieve you? Maybe you should consider hiring a virtual assistant - Me! I am experienced in customer support. I have held a remote position as Customer Service Manager for an online ecommerce website. I also have worked online for an Internet Marketer's customer service team as well has held numerous customer service positions offline.

Writer, Editor, Content Manager

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

I excel in the creation of content. I'm available to write professional materials, such as manuals, notifications, and emails, in addition to creative work, like short stories, plays, and novels. The same holds true for my editing expertise--I've worked as a content manager and edited technical manuals, contracts, and the like, but I've also received a master's degree in creative writing, so fiction is a major facet of my life. Finally, I'm tech-savvy and web-smart. I know my way around WordPress; I can tweak your work for SEO; and I created and published an article every day for 19 weeks for Geek Smash, a geek news website, in addition to editing the articles of our entire writing team. In short, I'm your guy. When do we get started?
