Communications Strategist - Writer, Editor, Creati...

Spain - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 14

Every company, organization, and individual has a motivation – a thought that comes into being, waiting for the moment to be expressed into actions and words. Often, thoughts linger on the verge of development due to the inability to partially or entirely transform them into literature; or the hesitation that doing so will deviate from the powerful essence of a thought that could ‘become’. Benefit from a communications strategist who will collaborate with you – from a writer, editor, and creative wordsmith perspective – to create original content as well as interpret your ideas, concepts, and literary works. Your existing communications will also be developed and enhanced to exceed your objectives and goals. We will work together to identify areas for improvement while outlining a strategy for change, and exploring innovative possibilities. Ours is a potential collaboration towards successfully creating, developing, and achieving your communication goals. I offer clarification through consultation and compose to establish literary flow. I am a wordsmith architect whose expertise is complemented by 20+ years of collaborating with companies from multiple sectors, corporate-level executives, entrepreneurs, and others. My sought-after consultation is also a reflection of my inherent ability to ‘engage’ by accessing the feeling of what you are trying to communicate. My collaborations have included: Entrepreneurs - establishing clear communication of their ideas Corporations - helping to develop written strategies Websites - in search of quality content Book authors - requiring a keen eye for creative and emotional infusion Book publishers - editing and proofreading for continuity Business startups - developing the foundation of their identity Marketing companies - for perspective to improving and expanding their message Translations companies - quality English writing across multiple industries The mom - seeking to express the depth of her sentimentality The student - fulfilling his/her written university requirements The executive - requiring beneficial insight and organization These collaborations, and more, are supported by an ongoing recognition of achievements and acknowledgements: "You get me." "You exceeded my expectations." "You knew exactly what I wanted to say." "You understood the objective from my perspective." "Your ability to evaluate, communicate, and deliver is extraordinary."

Expert Editor | Copywriter | Web Design | SEO Cons...

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 32 - Portfolio: 1

A professional copywriter and copy editor with excellent knowledge of sales and marketing both online and offline. I produce concise, pristine, and engaging copy for websites and business communications that appeal to multiple audiences utilizing a broad UK or US vocabulary as required. I am available to write landing pages, sales pages, brochures, mission statements, website pages, install/manage/host/customize WordPress sites, produce web graphics & design and domain management/procurement. Experienced in rolling out online start-ups including branding, I can really give your business that lift it needs to each above the competition and be both highly visible to search engines and useful to your readers and visitors. The days of relying on keywording and purchased backlinks to get a good Google position are gone; quality content is No.1 on Google's list of aims for its search engine. Advanced semantic algorithms are getting better and better at weeding out poor quality content. This is why my copywriting services are worth the money you pay - My content is always of very high quality, which I firmly believe will be increasingly characteristic of high ranking content in search results. My portfolio at http://www.phraseset.com includes many website pages of varying style of content, articles, corporate proposals and persuasive sales copy. As an expert editor, I can take that existing copy that you just cannot seem to get quite right and mold it into the powerful communication tool you had envisioned. My quality English language skills and high IQ (I am a Mensa Member) ensure that my clients get one of the best available freelance copywriting and technical writing partners. I have 20+ years of experience using Excel, Word, Photoshop and many other Adobe products. My overall objective is to apply my skills as best I can; assuring that I will not undertake anything, I cannot manage and will apply my ethic of hard work and quality to any project undertaken. On a personal level, I am a keen guitarist. Being friendly, personable, loyal, and flexible has always been my approach to work - I work hard at my client relationships because I value their business. Working in the online world of global sourcing across time zones from Australia to Europe and across the US, I fully understand the importance of being contactable (my SkypeID is timhi99ins). See my great feedback here on oDesk and remember, my full portfolio is available at http://www.phraseset.com. Note: I am not able to display all my work as I frequently sign NDA's. Check me out and then hire me so I can bring some added value to your business. You will not be disappointed.

Native Spanish Translator, Copywriter, Proofreader...

United Kingdom - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 10

I’ve always been fascinated by language; its structure, its ways, its creativity and its never-ending possibilities. That’s why I have a master’s degree in Linguistics and Literature, and why I have formed a solid career on everything regarding text. The most amazing thing? Language never stops to fascinate me! As an English to Spanish translator, I take extreme care in making each text sound exactly as if a native Spanish speaker would have written it. And not only a native speaker, but a professional writer. I'm a copywriter and every text I translate is also a text I copyedit. I understand the true importance of language in getting communication to work, so whether I work with academic, fiction or non-fiction texts, I always make sure that the writing flows clearly and with harmony, capturing the essence in every word, and mostly, the intended meaning of every text. I'll be pleased to answer any further questions you have in order to tackle new translation, copywriting, proofreading or writing projects, so please don’t hesitate in contacting me for any reason!

India - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

With over 10 years of work experience, including 8 years at one of the largest internet companies in the world (AOL), I have gained considerable skills in web content production, which includes writing, editing, proof-reading and photo editing. I love travel writing and showcase my own work on: mithunonthe.net. Trained in SEO, I know how to keep the right keywords in mind, but without it affecting the editorial integrity of the article. I have been working on oDesk for nearly 2 years and I maintain regular clients who are all satisfied with my work. So much so that one US-based client has hired me since April 2013 for weekly work -- and has no intention of letting me go! :-)

Professional Writer and Editor, degree in English...

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in English and Creative Writing. In the years since graduating from college I have held positions as an Editor in Chief, Administrative Assistant, Chief Blogger, and various other positions wich involved a great deal of professional writing. I believe my writing ability is what sets me apart from other freelancers on the site. I am also adept at administrative tasks such as data entry, creating schedules, communicating with clients, and other organizational duties. Some of my skills include typing a clean 90 WPM, basic HTML knowledge, a strong proficiency in all Word software, professional editing, writing, administrative tasks, and having 11 years of professional experience in these fields. As you can also see from my tests I placed 1st out of 400k+ test takers on the US Spelling Test. Aside from the professional description above I am absolutely in love with writing and words. I've always been told I have a knack for writing the perfect description that people never knew they wanted. Since I was young I devoured books like The Hobbit and a lot of children's books. I decided after college I wanted to devote myself to actually doing what I went to college for. And living in a small town doesn't lend well for writing outside of your home. So I decided the best step to take was to become a freelancer and help people all over the world with their writing needs. I've written everything from stories about video games to a memorial for a loved one. I hope by reading this you can see just how much I love to write. If you're looking for someone who is truly passionate about reading, writing, and language in general, I hope you contact me and let me assist you with the perfect phrase. - Ashley
