They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries

Erin Corral Agency Contractor

Crowdfunding/PR and Media Outreach/Copywriting/Social Media Marketing

United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 19

Updates: We raised over $62,000 in 32 days on a client Kickstarter Campaign! About Me: I am a copywriter, an online marketer, social media marketer and the Co-Founder of KickStartup Marketing. I create content for websites, articles, blogs and run several social media campaigns for a very diverse set of clients. I am always available to discuss the project and I'm a true self-starter. I help online (and offline) entrepreneurs form and execute marketing strategies to boost their customer base and increase sales. My specialty is in helping clients set up their social media marketing campaigns (the technical aspects of profile readiness) and maintain it long-term so they can concentrate on running their business. I am a copywriter and specialize in website content, and content related to product branding. I also write for several blogs. I help clients develop their brand and close gaps in their online marketing efforts. The message here is that in order to be talked about, content must be remarkable. Good is far too safe, boring and most often times easily forgotten. Differentiate yourself to your customers. Find the market that is the most profitable. Most companies (unless your toilet paper) do not cater to the masses. You should not be marketing to everyone because it's a waste of time and money. Although, the Internet provides a way to reach a mass market, to say that you should market to everyone is misguided logic. Every business should have a clear understanding of what market they serve- then find out how to reach them. If you're blindly throwing in the fishing line and hoping to catch something, anything...then you're wasting your marketing budget. Your potential clients are all online, and I can help you break through the clutter to find them and capture their attention. I like marketing products with momentum. I like marketing products that really have the potential to catch on. I love working with startups and professionals. If your business needs to be revitalized I can help you with that too. Marketing a remarkable product makes me giddy- but so does figuring out how to make your average product marketable. Some of my clients have contacted me while still in the concept or product development stage- this is a great time to put a team together and bring me in as a consultant to help you put your marketing investment into your product. Some products and services are easy to spread, others are a bit of a challenge. This is where the importance of strategic and tactile marketing and copywriting come in. Your website, product or service marketing decides whether your business hangs in the balance or catches on. Marketing is measurable and risks are necessary but manageable and thus containable. Metrics help you decide what works so you can do more of it. Your entire business can be optimized. Launching a new product or service is much too important to be left to just one person, contact me today and Ill get back to you within a few hours. Thanks, Erin Corral

Melissa Johnson

Copy editor and copy writer

United States - Tests: 13 - Portfolio: 2

Since 2010, I have worked as a freelance editor, writer, and marketer with a focus on one thing: Outstanding content. My work in the digital space includes large-scale content projects for eBay and other companies, but I have come to find that my passion lies with small businesses, and I've been fortunate enough to carve out a niche for myself doing just that: helping small business owners and entrepreneurs with all of their content needs. Whether I'm writing or editing, my goal is the same: deliver clear, concise, appealing copy for my clients. I have experience in an eclectic array of fields—I've written and edited corporate and executive biographies, e-commerce product descriptions, and articles for topics such as health, food, fashion, home and garden, insurance, financial planning, and more. Lately, I've focused my skills on website copy, blogging, and marketing materials, as well as SEO, particularly in relation to e-commerce, entrepreneurship, and technology. With each project, I meticulously research the topic and provide original, worthwhile content that goes above and beyond the generic. One of my biggest strengths is taking complex material and breaking it down into an easily accessible discussion. I always strive to get into the mindset of the target audience, so that I can answer their questions and ease their concerns. Over the years, I've developed multiple style guides and I love helping to shape a company's voice. My command of grammar is impeccable, and even though I am a native U.S. English speaker, I have also done work for Australian and U.K.-based content. I also have experience using social media platforms for businesses, including Facebook and HootSuite. My skillsets also include SEO and basic HTML. If you're looking for an enthusiastic blogger or copywriter who learns quickly and embraces new challenges and opportunities, I'd love to hear from you!
