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

Over the years I have developed myself and others in various business and leadership skills. My recent clients were family owned small businesses, but also Fortune 500 companies whose brands are in our homes wherever we might live at the moment. I studied and worked in several countries around the world - US, Switzerland, Middle East and Europe - in start-ups and operations management of multinationals. I consult and coach international clients mostly in business management and marketing. Am often writing or editing training or other manuals for them. Since Nov 2012. I am also the principal consultant for WiFi Austria Institute's 'HR Manager' course. This is 9 month course for which I also develop training material. My blog is No Panic Management and if you Google me you will find few more websites I made, with copies I wrote. My name is on first page of Google (when searching for it.) My objective is to work only on things I like, with people I like. They are professionals with integrity and attitude. It means they like and respect business, as well as others they work with. Do not work for companies who do not treat employees well. Ultimately I am looking for ways to help business grow and create jobs, whether it is mine or anyone else's company. That is a greater mission behind any ''small'' task I undertake. I take different jobs at my spare time, those I can do well, enjoy, and those that enhance my business experience while delivering result. Should you have a good business proposal or idea for me, I'd be happy to hear it. Am always welcoming new opportunities for business development and mutually beneficial partnerships.
I am a talented linguistic navigator; a motivated and captivating wordsmith, selling my talents and slinging my style to the highest bidder. I write website content, sales copy, and SEO articles for online marketers to earn my bread, and I spout off at the mouth for the butter. I have a highly opinionated blog at http://Zackrex.com, which includes a portfolio as well as many sporadic ramblings for your reading pleasure. Your project, assignment, or article--whatever the case may be--can be interpreted in a voice as monotone and unenthusiastic as a phone book read aloud by Henry Kissinger, but you'd probably prefer a booming and bombastic concerto, painstakingly crafted to make ears ring with ecstatic pleasure and wallets open up with ardent zeal. If you're looking for the former, I suggest you find a different scribe. I specialize in the sort of syntax that sings while it sells. I also have a Bachelor's degree in English literature that I never got around to framing. You see, I live in a condo without an enclosed office and scarce wall space. I thought it better suited me to adorn my surroundings with Pink Floyd album covers and Salvador Dali paintings, rather than remind myself that I'm a dreary academic with an expensive piece of paper hanging above the P.C. So drop me a line, and we can make beautiful music together. Or I can write something for you. Whatever. I'm anything but picky.
My 20+ year career in communicating ideas has come full circle on the Web. I am a trained Journalist, Filmmaker, and former Fulbright Scholar who can work with you on a variety of writing, marketing, crowdfunding, and media needs. Special knowledge in film history, film criticism, and the arts. An American English native speaker, I also have a background teaching English as a second language.

They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries
