~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TESTIMONIALS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Blake, If you are still writing autoresponder sequences, then Armando is looking for the best writer on the market." - Keith Baxter "Over 2 months ago Keith Baxter referred Blake King to me for some copy writing projects. Blakes copy skills are on another level. Our open rates doubles and sales conversions doubled. I will continue to use Blake on multiple projects in the near future." - Armando Alejandro "Meet Blake, the worlds best Autoresponder Madness copywriter" (introducing Keith Baxter to Blake) - Ryan Harper ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Why Ive created this Odesk profile: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ While clients who contact me through my main website (most do) have priority over Odesk clients... I will make room for you if you have a unique project... because from my experience, working on side projects in a variety of niches is one of best ways to stay at the top of my game... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A quick overview of myself ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Im best-known for writing high-converting video sales letters and email sequences... especially in the weight loss and prepper markets. I am currently exclusive with one of the bigger players in the prepper market. So, if youre in that market, I cant help you. Sorry. Ive worked with some of the most successful marketers in the world. Such as: Keith Baxter, Chuck Mullaney (founder of SendReach), Michael Lovitch, Buck Rizvi, Chris Guerriero and Traian Sava (the guy behind multiple million dollar marketing funnels). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More testimonials: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Blake is a rare find. One of those guys that works behind the curtain if you know what I mean. While people praise the gurus for how compelling their copy was, little do they know Blake was the one crafting the message as the ghost writer. Glad I was referred to Blake by one of the best marketers in my niche. No wonder Blake doesnt market his business, with work like he delivers, you can make a full-time income on referrals. (Although I may stop, I dont want him too busy) Anyhow Blake, wanted to give you this long overdue testimonial, you deserve. Definitely the King of Copy, literally, lol! Thinking about using Blake? Dont! Just hire him, and stop wasting your time looking for the best." - Brian Hanson "Chris - Blake is the copywriter I mentioned to you... He was recommended to me by Keith Baxter from a project he did with Michael Lovitch - if you know Michael you know that means Blake is a good copywriter... He also wrote a short sequence for me that I like and will be testing this month..." - Michael Hearne "Blake I cant thank you enough. I was so stuck and your writing skills are amazing! And, your marketing savvy was an extra cool bonus. I will definitely keep you top of mind for future projects. I highly recommend your services! Thanks again." - Kenya Halliburton "Just wanted to say thanks for the work you did. I gotta say youre one of the best marketers Ive ever worked with. Im gonna make a lot more money thanks to you. Ill be sending you some of my buddies too. I look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks buddy." - Leo Landers
I like using my passion for communication to help people. I use words to help people sell products or services. I am good at what I do. I understand how to research a market. I have a degree in Social Psychology (Interpersonal Communication). I have no problem contacting people if necessary. I believe that to sell something you have to speak a customer's language. This means going on and talking to people face-to-face. I am knowledgeable of the most up to date practices. I read marketing content daily. I write at least once a week on my blog. The things I write about are finding your identity to sell, removing uncertainty and creating attraction. I also study the legends of copywriting; John E. Powers, Joe Sugarman, Jay Abraham, John Carlton, Bob Bly... just to name a few. I don't get caught up in trends unless they are proven to be successful. I am not here to waste time. We should know within minutes of talking if you and I are a good fit. I am giving this oDesk thing a try. Message me about any opportunity you think I would be good for. Things I can help you with include: - Copywriting - Landing Pages - Writing Copy for Amazon - Crowdfunding Copywriting - Video Sales Letters / Scripts - Resume Assistance - Blogging - Advertisement Copy - Flyer Copy - Social Media Copy - eBooks Or anything else that involves words to sell or spread an idea. I have a set of skills that I can use in various ways. If you're looking for help, let me know. Thank you, Raymond Duke

Who's your customer? How should you relate to them? Put your ad, sales and press copy in the hands of someone who considers this when writing your content. It takes strategy to convert, sell and nurture customers, not just pretty words. My background and core competency is in persuasive writing. This type of writing works well in all areas of marketing and sales--with mediums ranging from web, radio, and print. I have 8 years experience with advertising and sales copy, including time spent on audio/visual and print campaigns for Buena Vista Motion Pictures, Taco Bell and Time Warner Cable. My copywriting work--including articles, press releases, blogs and sales letter copy--has been published in media, fashion and business trades, including the Los Angeles Business Journal and mediabistro.com. To top it off, I am a published author and current blog contributor on branding and consumer behavior. I love to help companies improve their bottom line by simply attending to their marketing in new and innovative ways. Find the balance between suffocating and nurturing your prospective customers. You'll find that you may have a great customer list, but you haven't spoken to them in just the right way...until now. Associated services: bio writing (how's your bio--does it convey the expertise you bring to the table? hint: it should speak for itself), internet marketing, content-creation coaching, copy and strategy consulting (know the 'why' behind the 'what'), copy-editing and rewriting, article and blog copy, autoresponder series, art direction suggestions to accompany copy (per my background in graphic design)
