    Word Lover, Spelling Corrector, and Article Creator

    United States - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 16

    I have a degree in Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Journalism. I was an award winning columnist for my university paper, and wrote articles for the school's magazine as well. I am creative and love to express that. I have been writing online for the past five years specializing in areas such as crafts, entertainment, beauty and fashion, home decor, DIY, kids' activities and parties, holiday ideas, electronics, jewelry, clothing, and literature. I am also trained in copywriting, opinion articles and public relations writing. I'm a grammar and spelling lover and adore editing as well as writing and have taken copyediting classes. I have a sharp sense of humor, flawless spelling and grammar skills and I tend to work very hard but very fast. I'm experienced with social networking, HTML, Microsoft Word, SEO writing and blogging. I love coming up with ideas and being creative so my articles aren't run of the mill. I'm friendly, social and great with customers and clients as well. I was named one of Yahoo's Top Writers of 2012, and stay busy with projects ranging from social media, product descriptions, blogs, and Buying Guides to page reviews and ratings, article writing, and editing. I love the written word, especially when it's spelled properly! I'm prompt, trustworthy, and strive for excellence every day, and I enjoy becoming a better writer with each project I work on.

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

    Copywriter at plantadvertising.com

    Australia - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    An Australian copywriter with over 14 years’ experience, I got my first full-time agency position when renowned advertising profile Steve Trygg saw the work I was doing whilst studying at Berghs School of Communication, one of Europe’s foremost marketing academies. Steve immediately offered me employment at his B2B agency SandbergTrygg, at whose European headquarters I then worked in parallel with my copywriting studies. This was way back in 2001. Covering quite technical accounts in the telecommunications, trucking and stock-trading industries, I stayed with SandbergTrygg until relocating to Cairns in 2003. Adpower Plus, at the time North Queensland’s largest advertising agency, then employed me to service their clients – a mix of B2B and B2C companies and organisations, including Stockland Shopping Centres, Pacific Toyota, Medtel, Tourism Tropical North Queensland and Cairns Convention Centre, to name a few. Having made my mark on the Queensland market, I proceeded to go international with my own business in 2006 and have since worked for clients ranging from large corporations and organisations such as Rio Tinto, City West Water and the Maavarim Group to smaller outfits such as Zimperium Technologies, Enteract and Joolca. This has involved research, analysis, conceptualisation, copywriting and creative direction for numerous very different products. In other words: I’m equally at home advertising fast-moving products in the Western retail market as I am selling hospital equipment to African governments. Every last bit of my creative is built on solid research. Simply put, I not only come up with HOW to convey your message; I also provide the strategy required to decide WHAT to say. Since 2011, I am based out of Melbourne, where I run the strategic marketing agency Plant Advertising. And it’s only now that this piece of text is going to get truly valuable to you, because, for all that I’ve told you above, what really matters is how good my actual copy is, right? So, check out the work samples at www.plantadvertising.com or have a look in the special Dropbox folder that I’ve prepared for oDesk clients at http://bit.ly/1t95lkB Remember, whatever copywriter you end up selecting for your project, the whole point of creative is to increase sales or otherwise convince your target group of this, that or the other – and far from all copy does that. Bottom line: if you’re going to compromise on your marketing, you might as well not do it at all. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Paul Walden

    Thank you for your interest! I am out on maternity leave until at least the first week in May and will not review any new offers until after that time. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Zack Rutherford

    Scribe/Copywriter/Blogger

    United States - Last active: 1 month 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.
