    Video Script Writer Extraordinaire

    United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    Although I am a academic, copy, content and creative writer my specialty is video script writing- animated, whiteboard, narrated, training and sales. Even though academic and creative writing is based on quality content it is also based on the quantity of words- clients are always seeking a word count. Video script writing requires a completely different process and mindset than academic, copy, content and creative writing. It requires the writer to be able to take a large volume of content and reduce it to a bare minimum word count that can immediately gain a viewers attention and retain it throughout the entire video. The ability to write effective video scripts is skill that cannot be perfected overnight. I pledge to provide my clients with a degree of quality that they will be pleased to call their own. I am self motivated, hard working, detailed oriented, flexible and reliable. I believe that communication is significant in any business relationship. I have found that asking the right questions at the beginning of an assignment ensures that not only will be completed ahead of schedule it will exceed the client’s expectations. My goal is to provide my Odesk clients with exceptional quality at reasonable cost and 100% satisfaction. Not only does a satisfied client leave positive feedback, they are likely to be a repeat client. Each client, no matter the duration or size of the assignment, should be treated with the up most respect. I am seeking to develop long term relationships that will be mutually beneficial for both the client and myself.

    Scribe/Copywriter/Blogger

    United States - Last active: 23 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a talented linguistic navigator; a motivated and captivating wordsmith, selling my talents and slinging my style to the highest bidder. I write website content, sales copy, and SEO articles for online marketers to earn my bread, and I spout off at the mouth for the butter. I have a highly opinionated blog at http://Zackrex.com, which includes a portfolio as well as many sporadic ramblings for your reading pleasure. Your project, assignment, or article--whatever the case may be--can be interpreted in a voice as monotone and unenthusiastic as a phone book read aloud by Henry Kissinger, but you'd probably prefer a booming and bombastic concerto, painstakingly crafted to make ears ring with ecstatic pleasure and wallets open up with ardent zeal. If you're looking for the former, I suggest you find a different scribe. I specialize in the sort of syntax that sings while it sells. I also have a Bachelor's degree in English literature that I never got around to framing. You see, I live in a condo without an enclosed office and scarce wall space. I thought it better suited me to adorn my surroundings with Pink Floyd album covers and Salvador Dali paintings, rather than remind myself that I'm a dreary academic with an expensive piece of paper hanging above the P.C. So drop me a line, and we can make beautiful music together. Or I can write something for you. Whatever. I'm anything but picky.

    I have many years experience writing for websites, both in my professional life working at national and international sporting organisations in the NRL, Super Rugby and Cricket Australia; and my own personal website - www.travellingapples.com.

I have a Bachelor of Education Degree and was a schoolteacher for five years before embarking on a nine year career working in professional sport as a media manager, digital media manager and General Manager of Communications. I then started my own business from scratch, which was a first for me, before selling it to help fund my family's current global nomadic adventure. I also have extensive experience managing social media platforms, particularly Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I established the Melbourne Storm's social media platforms, building the Facebook following to over 110,000. I was also contracted by Etihad Stadium in Melbourne in 2013 to establish their social media presence, with particular focus on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, with huge success.
