    Writing is my passion. In total, I have nearly ten years' experience in professional writing as a historian and more than five in content writing. Having worked at two presidential libraries, I acquired strong writing and research skills and applied all that I have learned to my career as a freelancer. I have written for realtors, entrepreneurs, financial technology companies, a digital signage company, nonprofits, and two AI productivity tools. Whether it be about history, technology, or business, I can tackle it. Finally, we are all aware of how AI is changing the way content is produced. But even with all of its advantages, AI is far from perfect. If you are looking for an editor to ensure your AI-generated content is as close to perfect as possible, let me help you. Take some time to view my profile and portfolio and reach out with any questions.

    Since a young age, I have loved bringing stories to life. It is said that when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. I am a firm believer in this policy. The story or article that I am writing for you is never work. The work is not something I feel like I have to do. Instead, the story or article I am writing for you is something I want to do. Throughout the last year, I have worked with over two hundred clients on fiction and nonfiction projects alike. My fiction writing specialties include: - Contemporary Fiction - Romance - Fantasy - Historical Fiction - Science Fiction Though these are the areas I prefer to write in, I am comfortable with most genres. My nonfiction writing specialties include: - Blog posts - Interest pieces - Research papers - Biographies - Memoirs When it comes to the length of the writing piece, I am comfortable with a wide range. I have worked on stories that range from less than a thousand words to stories that are over one hundred thousand words. I enjoy working with clients on the outline of the project if it is not already formed. If clients have an outline, I will work from that and continue to build upon the ideas they already have. With my writing, clients will see their stories come to life. My services are completely confidential. I will never lay any claim to the work I do for my clients.

    A published author, playwright, and writer of an award-winning short story, I have been writing professionally for 20 years. My most recent book, published in Nov 2021, is on Socratic questioning and critical thinking. Much of my earlier writing is textbooks for Southern African schools and colleges and covers a variety of technical subjects, including: Systems Analysis and Design Data Communications and Networks Entrepreneurship Customer Relationship Management Project Management. My writing also includes radio plays and stage plays (some of which have been broadcast, and/or published, and/or performed), plus reviews and articles for magazines and newspapers. As an editor and project manager, I have taken books from concept through to publication. An example of this is a full-color coffee-table book, "I Praise the Dance: Celebrating Contemporary Dance in South Africa." As an editor and proofreader, I have worked on dozens of titles, ranging from Consumer Behaviour to Mechanical Manufacturing to Refrigeration. The target age range is from primary school to tertiary level. All textbooks invariably come with exceptionally tight deadlines and I have built a solid reputation for producing high-quality work while meeting deadlines. The first 23 years of my career were spent in the computer industry, doing everything from programming to systems analysis and design, to the management of PC retail outlets. From the late 1990s to about 2008, I was self-employed as a business and IT consultant. During that time I also worked as an independent business advisor specializing in helping emerging entrepreneurs draw up business plans to get their businesses funded and off the ground. I still work with young people, particularly young musicians, dancers, and craftspeople, helping them see their art as a business. To facilitate this, I run online Arts Entrepreneurship courses.

    WHAT YOU NEED: You've got the story, you'd just like some help telling it. You've got the product, but you need the creative copy and content marketing that will spread the word. You've got the grades, but will your personal statement get you into an Ivy League school? WHO I AM: I'm a Brooklyn-based writer and editor with over eight years of experience in journalism, editing, and writing both creative and promotional. As a student at the University of Southern California (USC), I studied Print & Digital Journalism for two years, during which time I contributed to numerous student and independent publications as a writer and editor. I switched majors my sophomore year and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Narrative Studies, an interdisciplinary writing and literature degree. Since 2015, I have operated a peer-to-peer editing service called Run The Jules, focusing mostly on remote editing for academic essays, college applications and medical/law school applications. My students have gained entry to prestigious institutions such as Brown University, UCLA, LMU, USC Keck Medical School, and Harvard Law School. I currently serve as the copy editor for monthly trade journal mg Magazine and a staff copywriter for 1o8 Agency, where I write blog posts, white papers and web copy for businesses in a variety of niches, from higher education to quantum computing. For three years, I served as Head Writer and Copy Editor for Lafayette Social, a Bay Area-based publication with a circulation of about 10,000. In addition to penning three of the magazine's feature stories each month, I edited and proofread the entire magazine from rough draft to final proof, ensuring that our content was consistent and professional. When I'm not editing, I work in music licensing and enjoy camping, going to concerts, and playing guitar. As a graduate of the Americorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), I value service to my community and spent years volunteering with food security and gardening-oriented nonprofits around the LA area. WHAT I OFFER: • proofreading/copy editing (digital content, blogs, academic writing and business writing) • content creation for blogs, online publications and marketing campaigns • editing and advising on college and graduate school application essays, cover letters, grants and scholarship essays • press releases, creative advertising copy, social media copy, promotional content • quick turnaround, reliable communication, constructive feedback Life is busy, and writing isn't easy. Let me polish your content, sell your ideas, and bring your stories to life. Cheers, Jules

    They won’t click, convert, and become customers. Trust me, they won’t. Not if you can’t write like you know what they’re going through. The pain they feel. Their promised land and the obstacles they encounter while trying to get there. Their barriers to action, both explicit and implicit. That’s the kind of depth that has to come through on every landing page, blog post, email– All of it. Otherwise, someone else will win that business. They’re winning it right now, the longer it takes you to find the right writing talent. Should be easy enough, right? There are loads of professional writers out there. Here’s the problem: Writing is maybe 25% of the whole copywriting thing. The rest is where the real magic happens: The deep research into customer voice, competitors, and the industry. The knowledge and application of proven copywriting formulas, tactics, and best practices. Experience getting the job done for clients that make you say … Yeah, I can get with that. Here’s what the CEO of a Marketing Agency had to say about working with me: “As a writer, he asks the right questions and doesn't need his hand held at all—a self-starter that picks up the lingo quickly, understands where his work fits into the marketing funnel, and delivers polished and engaging work each and every time. As someone who runs a digital marketing agency and comes across a lot of content and copywriting, trust me when I tell you that Martin is a top-tier writer.” Then there’s the SaaS Sales Leader I recently worked with: “From the sales side, it was mission critical for our team to bring value to prospects with relevant content during each stage of the sales process. Martin made my life so much easier by getting me instant credibility with prospects through content of high value and relevance.” Not a ninja reference nor “wordsmith” to speak of, because let’s be honest: You don’t need a copy unicorn to get prospects to click, convert, and become customers. You need a copywriter who knows how to do one thing: Deliver results. To see more testimonials, check out my Upwork profile–there are hundreds. Ready to talk shop? Contact me directly to discuss your project. 🤘🤘🤘

    Hello and welcome to my profile! My name is Nick, and I am an experienced content writer. I consider myself a responsible person, and you wouldn't have to worry about deadlines when working with me. It is true that my BA in archaeology enriches my imagination and helps me to be different from everybody else. My MA in Buildings Archaeology through visualization (University of York, U.K), however, provided the English language proficiency I needed for article writing. I am a permanent writer for websites like Onedesblog.com, Ultida.com, mediapeanut.com, and kidslovegreece.com. As you can see via my work history in Upwork, I have written numerous blog posts and articles around: 1) Graphic design (Fonts, Mockups, WordPress Plugins) 2) Photography (How-to Guides, tutorials) 3) Technology 4) Traveling (travel guides and reviews) If you need an experienced writer in one of the niches above, I'm your guy! I am looking forward to meeting every one of you.

How to Hire Top Writers

Whether it’s to maintain the company blog, write product reviews, or create an ebook—freelance writers are in high demand. So how do you find a writer? What follows are some tips on finding top writers on Upwork.

How to shortlist writers

As you’re browsing available writing consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the freelancers you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Industry fit. You want a writer who understands your industry, so they can help you figure out how best to reach your target market.
  • Attention to detail. Writers who follow style guides, grammar, and instructions are a win.
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular writer.

Before posting a job, ask yourself:

  • Do I need a specialist? Do you need a copywriter with an engineering background? A video script writer for sales landing pages with a history of success?
  • When do I need the project done?  If you have a tight deadline, a more experienced writer may be able to turn a project around faster and with fewer edits needed.
  • How much research is needed? The copywriter needs to understand the audience’s hot buttons and what they’re selling before they can write. The more information you can provide upfront (i.e., testimonials, past campaign results, buyer personas) the sooner they can start writing. And if you’re promoting an online course, for example, a good copywriter will often review the entire program before writing. Be sure to account time for that in your planning.
  • How much expertise do I need? Copy for a multimillion-dollar product launch, or perhaps to make a difficult announcement without inciting the reader, often requires higher expertise than copy for a blog post that nurtures prospects.

How to write an effective writing job post

With a clear picture of your ideal writer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Aim to provide enough detail for a freelancer to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective writing job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From press releases to ebooks list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience working with certain industries, software, or marketing channels, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

WRITERS FAQ

What does a writer do?

Businesses rely on writers for a wide variety of projects. For this reason, professional writers often specialize by industry or project type.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in professional writers:

  • General writing and editing
  • Niche writing domains such as SEO, technical writing, copywriting, advertising, and email
  • Familiarity with word processing software such as Google Docs
  • Research
  • Communication

Why hire writers?

The trick to finding top writers is to identify your needs. Are you looking for an SEO writer to write search engine optimized content for your company blog? Or do you require experience creating witty posts for social media? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work, and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire a copywriter?

When deciding how much to budget, know that independent writers are businesses. As in any other business, they set their own pricing. Below are the seven most common factors that affect copywriting fees.

7 factors affecting copywriting rates

  1. Project Research: Many times, the copywriter needs background before starting the project. This may include interviewing your customers, researching the industry and your competition, reviewing past marketing campaigns, and so on. The greater the amount of research needed, the higher the project fee may be. For example, if the copywriter must develop your buyer personas or read your 400-page book before writing an email campaign to promote it, the time commitment will add up.TIP: Keep fees down by providing the copywriter with as much relevant data as possible at project start.
  2. Specialization: The more specialized and in-demand your copywriter, the more they may charge. It’s basic supply and demand. For example, if you need a direct-response copywriter with an electrical engineering background to sell your highly technical product to other engineers, then expect to pay more.
  3. Planning and strategy: For more complex projects, the copywriter may benefit from meeting with other project team members to help strategize a rollout or plan a campaign.
  4. Project type: Project fees aren’t just dependent on the amount of copy needed, fees are also affected by the project’s complexity. Writing a four-page brochure will obviously cost less than a 40-page website. But a single Pay Per Click (PPC) ad can cost as much as an email. That’s because when an ad only has 25 characters to entice a conversion (e.g. get the click), each word used often requires more thought and research.
  5. Deadline: If you need something done sooner, you may have to pay what many call a “rush fee.” Fees vary depending on the project and deadline. Also, expect to pay more if your writer has to work over the weekend or during a holiday period.
  6. Additional skills: Generally, copywriters just write the copy, without formatting past a basic MS Word or Google document. Some copywriters have other skills such as graphic design or voiceover talent. More advanced direct-response copywriters often provide marketing strategy as well. If you need the copywriter to do more, such as write and design a brochure, or to enter blog posts on WordPress, expect to pay more.
  7. Level of expertise: As in most professions, the more experience and skills needed, the higher the professional fees. Copy for a multimillion-dollar product launch often requires higher expertise than copy for a blog post that nurtures prospects.

Depending on the project type, copywriters may charge per word, hourly, or a flat project fee. Content writers usually prefer hourly or a fixed price. Experienced copywriters often prefer fixed prices for most project types. When the project’s success relies mainly on the copy, royalties may be paid in addition to a flat project fee. For example, if a credit card company mailed out 10 million sales letters to solicit new applicants, the copywriter could receive a fixed price for writing the sales letter, and royalties for every new customer the letter converted.

Copywriter vs. content writer vs. blog writer—what’s the difference?

In general, all writers are a type of content writer. Content covers online and offline assets from landing pages, whitepapers, to social media ads. The types of writers available can be as specialized as the type of content you need creating.

A copywriter differs in that they integrate psychology and sales into their writing to drive conversions such as to sign up, download, or buy something. They often work on assets designed to convert including sales landing pages, ads, email campaigns, TV, and direct mail projects.

A blog writer specializes in writing short or long articles for a specific website. The articles (blog posts) usually cover a topic related to the website. This can be anything from industry news, product information, to opinions.
