    Experienced Article Writer with Inbound Marketing Knowledge

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

    My ultimate goal is to be able to retire from the rat-race and be able to support myself full time writing fiction and non-fiction. I am also learning web design and have experience and interest in online marketing. I have sold a handful of articles at Constant Content - a great site for freelance writing. I also wrote a number of articles for different companies during my time at Browser Media, an online marketing/SEO company. I wrote for wedding venues on dress styles, for an air conditioning company on laws regarding refridgerants and for an eFax company on digitisation of the workplace, among many others. I can write on most topics and am excellent at independent research. My online marketing skills are strong with experience in contacting bloggers to solicit guest posts,social networking and making relevant contributions to ongoing discussions concerning products or fields of interest that are relevant to clients. I believe, with the updates made to Google's algorithm in the past couple of years, the days of spamming article directories are over and the SEO and online marketing industry need to understand that only by providing content that is interesting, relevant and visible to the target market can they succeed. My degree in Psychology gives me an understanding of the human psyche that I can use in my work to create campaigns and foster ideas that get people talking. Thank you for taking the time to read about what I can offer you, I look forward to working with you soon.
