    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.

    Want benefit-oriented product descriptions or optimized Amazon listings that truthfully inform your customer while also bringing in sales? Let me help. Following your company's guidelines for length, SEO, and style, I'll craft easy-to-read product descriptions chock-full of helpful information.  How do I do this? First, I read through all provided information. Then, I'll look at competitor's websites to see what selling points, angles, and SEO-related language that they're using.  Second, I research the materials your products are made of. For example, if your outdoor planter is made from fiberglass, I know that it's weatherproof, durable, and resistant to rust.  Third, I think like the customer. What do I want to know about the product? What would I be typing into the search bar to find it? Why would I buy this? Asking these questions and others helps me to craft more focused content with the right SEO keywords. What can I write about? Currently, I write about scuba diving equipment, clothing, furniture, linens, and home goods. In the past, I've covered jewelry, kids toys, baby/infant products, and more. I will do the research necessary to intelligently write about your company's products* no matter how complicated they may seem. *Please note: I stay away from alcohol, tobacco, and adult-related products.  Services I offer include: - Editing/writing e-books or educational books - Amazon listing optimization or descriptions for any e-commerce site - Editing/writing SEO blog posts or web content - General writing, copyediting, and copywriting assignments I prefer fixed-rate assignments. Hourly rate is subject to change based on the project at hand.

    I have been writing for many years, and am a staff writer for 2 online magazines, as well as having my own blog. I am also a member of the National Union of Journalists. I am a perfectionist and will deliver consistently high standards with thorough research every time. Writing is my full-time job - I don't do it as a 'side-gig', it's what pays the bills and therefore I always make sure I give every project 100%. I am a qualified Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regression Therapist, Holistic Pain Management Consultant and have also studied Aromatherapy and Herbalism. I also hold a diploma in Law of Attraction studies. My writing style is observational humour - I have the (sometimes frowned upon) ability to see the lighter side in most situations, and this shows in my work. I am English born and bred, so excellent grammar and spelling are guaranteed - however, I am also proficient in US English, so whether you are in the UK or the US you can rest assured you are in the best possible hands; you have the best of both worlds! I would love to be given the opportunity to show what I can do for you. Thank you for reading.

    Hi! Welcome to my profile. Since you need a writer, allow me to introduce myself. I have written over twenty novels in various genres and am always looking for a new challenge. Although I am more comfortable with fiction, I have also worked as a copywriter. If you need it written, I'm the person for the job! I'm an effective ghostwriter and have signed several non-disclosure agreements. I work discreetly and pride myself on being able to capture a client's desired tone. I have worked on a number of different genres ranging from murder mystery to young adult dystopia. I also have editing experience and can correct errors in a manuscript without changing the flow of the story. In my experience, the key to a successful novel is a detailed plot outline. If you need someone to guide you through this stage of writing a novel or want someone to give helpful tips on how to enhance your story, feel free to pop me a message! During my time as a writer, I've also been asked to be a beta reader. Other writers have also asked me to help write blurbs for their books and provide reviews. I've always enjoyed reading, so this type of work appeals to me. The authors were generally pleased with my feedback since it was fair and respectful. I always try to preserve the essence of the story while I'm providing notes, and my main priority is to preserve the author's unique voice. My writing is always well researched and delivered on time. The overall tone of my work is upbeat and engaging although I have worked on several serious projects. I have worked with a number of clients and always received positive feedback. I keep things professional and believe in hard work and efficiency. I pride myself on having a good work ethic. My interests include learning more about the world around me, and I engage in part-time volunteer work that brings me into contact with many interesting people. I look forward to hearing from you!

    I started writing fiction when I was fourteen, and have worked to sharpen my skills and expand my abilities ever since. I specialize in creative writing and editing, particularly in the genres of romance and fantasy. In addition, I have experience with blogging, maintaining several of my own blogs as well as ghostwriting for a local real estate blog. My personal areas of focus have been politics, theology, ministry, and publishing. During my time at Boston College, I was a research assistant for a national study of Hispanic ministries in Catholic parishes. Both of my masters programs required extensive academic writing and research, as well as editing. I am a flexible, organized, dedicated worker, and look forward to assisting you with your writing needs.

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.
