    Attention: This is not for Tire Kickers and Bottom Feeders Here's How A Direct Response Copywriter from the Philippines Turns Fickle Surfers into Engaged Readers, Seduces Your Customers, and Skyrockets your Profits with White Hot Copy that SELLS! Dear Entrepreneur, So you want your Website to SELL? Or your Landing Pages to CONVERT? What if there was a way you can convert 15%, 25%, even 50% more of your website visitors into customers, how much more money would you earn as a result? You've probably heard that hiring freelancers from the Philippines was the way to go in expanding your business, but chances are, if you've hung around Odesk or Elance for some time, I bet you've been massively disappointed. $3/hour workers who consistently turn in shoddy, poor quality work, consistently miss deadlines, who disappear from you just when you need them the most. Article writers who have stilted and awkward English, who write boring copy that reads like a textbook or a brochure. Being the smart, discerning, entrepreneur that you are, you need someone with a consistent, proven, 5 star Odesk record to write your copy. You also need someone who was trained by the masters - John Carlton, Gary Halbert, Michael Masterson, Bob Bly - the great masters of direct response copywriting, because you know that once a copywriter knows how to write copy that SELLS - then you've got yourself a goldmine. Imagine your customers spending a lot of time in your website, drinking in every detail, feeling like you know their wants, needs, fears, and then offered your product at just the right moment - sweet release. Imagine them lapping up every single word in your website, riveted to find that the product you offer has exactly the right promise to solve their problems. Imagine them taking out their wallets, and handing you their credit cards – turning into ATM machines that you can consistently get money on demand. Imagine no more, because if you're looking for an intuitive copywriter that can tap into your target customer's deepest, dirtiest desires, and explains why your product is 100x 200x 300x BETTER than your competitors, then you will find that as you read every single word of this profile, THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT PAGE YOU WILL READ TODAY Hi my name is Jaimee Ligan, I worked with top brands in Singapore as a social media manager, writing copy that pulls 100+ likes per post, and generating 1000 organic fans in just a week. (click http://www.pinterest.com/jaimeeruth to see proof) I am a law student, a Japanese interpreter that worked in dozens of niches - (chemical, legal, pharmaceutical, christian, business, real estate, health and fitness) I worked with high profile CEOs in Fortune 500 companies for their social media campaigns, and I have consistently delivered warm leads and prospects. My experience working with top brands made me realize that all it takes to write copy that SELLS are the right words, highly targeted to the right customers. But this doesn’t mean that just because I worked with top brands, that am not in touch with your customers. I consider myself as a renegade in the advertising industry. In fact, I also worked deep in the trenches with top internet marketing experts, day after day, learning how to write sales copy for landing pages that convert 30,40,50%. (contact me for references) I know exactly what to say, and how to say it. I know NLP and hypnotic techniques to pull your customer’s psychological and emotional triggers to WANT to buy your products. But don't take my word for it, here are some of what my former clients had to say: ""Hiring Jaimee was one of the best decisions I made last year. She learned quickly, is very dependable and very low maintenance. I will definitely hire her again when I need someone." - Ed Hayward, CEO, CipherTooth "Jaimee was a pleasure to work with. She replied promptly to my emails and came in on time and on budget for the project. I will definitely use her again" "You're doing great, even more than I expect" - Ken Louis, TheBizHelp What Makes Me Different from Other Copywriting Services I’ve worked with top brands and top internet marketing experts with a singular focus on CONVERSION. I am trained in writing copy that SELLS. I don’t pretend that I am the BEST COPYWRITER out there, but this makes me work DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUADRUPLE as much to make the most compelling sales copy for your customers. I can easily research high performing sales copy for your niche and use the best practices in writing mouth-watering copy that consistently sells to your customers. Want to know my secret sauce? I write for people, and not for search engines. Here are some of my services: • Sales Copy – that converts leads to enthusiastic customers. • Emails and Promotional Copy – that connects to your customers and engages them to buy your products and services. • Blog Posts – that position your business as an authority in your industry and other influencers. • Featured Articles – to widen your website’s reach. • SMO/SEO Press Releases – to build your rankings in search engines. • Content Strategies – customized to your target market’s immediate needs and concerns • Content Management – so you can focus on the technical aspects • Marketing and Content Consulting –you will have my support every step of the way. Although I use search engine optimization tactics strategically to deliver content that engages casual surfers, AND ranks well on search engines. These tactics are carefully interwoven inside my services: • Search Engine Optimization (I can write articles that search engines love by seamlessly including targeted search keywords into the copy) • Behavior Analysis (I understand what your customers are looking for and I can position you as the best choice against your competitors) • Conversion/Sales Funnels (I can structure your web organization and email follow-up series content to prime your products to be sold) • Consumer Lifecycle (I can analyze your content to identify weak spots, strengthen your copy marketing strategy so turn passive consumers into brand ambassadors) • Analytics & Data (I can understand numbers and tweak your content to maximize customer engagement) • Social Media (I can generate brand loyalty to your fans and followers) What’s In IT For You and Your Business? Freedom. And the peace of mind knowing that your website reaches a captive, targeted audience, and subconsciously engages your visitors to prepare them to buy. Know that your website copy can deliver consistent interested leads that you can convert to paying customers. And watch dollars flow in to your business. You can also see new deals developing as you win not only new customers but also other potential business partners. You won’t have to worry about our content, since you have my communication and support every step of the way. You can just sit back and focus on making your products or services the best they can be. And let your copy do all of the talking. Here’s My Guarantee. I prefer to work on Fixed price projects. This means that for every project there will be 50% down payment and the remaining 50% at the end of the project. If you’re not completely happy with your copy, I guarantee UNLIMITED revisions. You’re not even required to pay the remaining 50% until you are happy with the final product. 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED So it’s your choice. You can entrust your copy to any run-of-the-mill freelancer out there and you can come to me later to clean up the mess they’ve made… OR You can WORK WITH ME FROM DAY ONE, and I’ll SHOW YOU What exactly your web copy should say, And HOW YOU SHOULD SAY IT. What your landing page should contain, Which layouts work best in your web sites, What positioning works best in your landing pages, and What YOUR OFFER SHOULD CONTAIN. With me, there are No Guesses. No Trials and Errors. No Ifs and Buts. I’ve written enough websites, landing pages, sales pages, social media copy to know what works, and what doesn’t. That’s what you get for hiring a seasoned professional. Instead of a newbie freelancer who does backyard brain surgery on YOUR MOST IMPORTANT INTERNET ASSET: Your COPY. So since I receive a lot of invitations on a daily basis, CONTACT ME TODAY to reserve your slot for my work week. START SKYROCKETING YOUR PROFITS TODAY. To Your Success, Jaimee Ligan PS. Why should you hire me to write your copy? Simply put, I have the technical and emotional savvy to convert your leads to paying customers.  less
