I have 98% of the "Copy" that I want to use to describe to "decision makers" (CEO's, Presidents, Business Owners, etc...) how my company can help them, help their business. I just need someone that can "fine tune it" and italicize, "BOLD", highlight, underline, colorize, etc... it. In other words: I want to turn this 2 Page plain black and white text into an "eye catching", enticing, get someone to "take action" type of copy.

Not For Profit SAKNepal requires assistance in rewriting website copy: Total 3760 words, multiple pages (10-11, with the paragraph spacing as it is). Attached below is a copy of the entire site in one doc, we can send it with links to each page for your reference, but it's just linear straight down from the top of the site to the bottom. Would like evidence of past success, or rewrite the following lines: (From saknepal.org): [METHODOLOGY We employed a 12 step methodology to ensure thoroughness. Click to learn more.] [OBJECTIVES 7 objectives allow our team to stay focused. Click to learn more.] This will include the main page and each of the pages that link out from the main page (but not the "resources" section). My guess is this would take about a work day. Bonus points for: - Past Pop-Sci/Not For Profit/Grant writing experience. - Willingness to prove skill-set. - Being friendly! We're a small org, with some budget to do other, similar work. Not necessarily a one-off. - Giving a fair price - this isn't rocket science, but there's some complexity to it as well. We want to work through this with you.

Hi all, I'm currently seeking a Copy Editor to post and edit pre-written articles for a popular music and lifestyle website http://www.DigitalWarble.com. (I’ll be as in depth as possible within this job advert so you know what to expect, and justify the low rates of pay.) This is a very low skilled job (pretty much just copy and paste), so I am looking to pay the lowest rates as it basically just takes time to post these articles. - The process: > I send you an email with a headline, media link (YouTube/SoundCloud/Vimeo etc) and article copy. > You edit/proofread the article copy > Tag a relevant Twitter handle > Post to Wordpress You need experience: > Proofreading articles for editorial consistency (spelling, grammar etc) > Sticking to editorial guidelines (these will be provided: bolding, italics etc) > Posting articles on Wordpress in the correct categories, and adding relevant tags > Posting articles using the HTML side, rather than the WYSIWYG - Looking forward to hearing your proposals and potentially working with you long-term on this!

We are a web agency in Kent, UK and are looking for freelance copywriter(s) to assist when we need someone to provide exciting, accurate and creative copy. It could be writing content or articles for our own website (and the research to go with it), or re-writing marketing copy for a client website (we do a lot for schools and could involve copywriting for school websites), or it could be writing metadata for individual pages for a client website. Or it may involve writing marketing copy for an email campaign for us or a client, or assisting in a pitch for a new job. The ideal person will be able to adapt the tone of voice to the audience they are writing for - so flexibility in work is required. It goes without saying that perfect English and grammar is required (obviously UK English not American English). Preference would be given to someone in UK - ideally Kent, as at times there maybe a need to attend a meeting, although we will consider the right candidate anywhere in the world.
