    Copy that sucks cash like a vacuum on steroids!

    Australia - Last active: 5 days ago - Portfolio: 7

    “For every dollar I spent on Chris I made back $3. That right there should tell you everything you need to know. His copy works. It gets sales. It makes you money. Chris also happens to be one of those writers that goes above and beyond just writing well. He responds to emails quickly, he was positive and upbeat even when I was feeling overwhelmed with my own project, and he made sure he was doing things right BEFORE he worked on stuff (which was a HUGE time and money saver). I would highly recommend Chris to anybody who needs words to help them make money. ” “One of the best outsource contractors I've ever dealt with on eLance or anywhere else. Highly recommend!” You’re here because you (or your client) want copy that makes your virtual cash register ring to the sweet chime of KA-CHIINNG! The testimonials above (taken from eLance) prove that I can write copy to boost your bottomline, protect your brand image, and deliver projects on time.

    Content Developer

    United States - Last active: 08/13/2013 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    I work as a freelance writer. I attended college at both the University of Southern Mississippi and the University of Alabama, where I majored in psychology. I possess excellent research and writing skills and can write about a wide variety of topics. I chose this career path because writing has always been my strongest skill and feels very natural for me. I am able to work quickly and efficiently under time constraints. I am proficient at many styles of writing, both academic and creative, and if I have not written in a particular style I am adept at picking it up quickly and adapting to it. I am easy to work with, not argumentative, and FAST. I will get the job done by deadline, usually before, and it will be high quality writing and exactly what you asked for. I am a native English writer. My work is 100 percent original and of my own imagination. I do not use spin or re-write programs which leave the work sounding awkward and computer-written. Odesk asked me to supply an hourly rate; however I rarely work for that amount or on an hourly basis. Sometimes I will work for less, if I have a low workload at the time and the project is not overly difficult. Other times I ask for a higher amount based on the difficulty of the project and amount of research required. Please inquire with details of your specific project and I will quote a rate for you.
