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

United States - Last active: 16 hours 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.
