    Australia - Last active: 6 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!
