    Tom McMeekin

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

    Nemanja Petrić

    Resume and LinkedIn writer/Social Media Savvy

    Serbia - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    Client testimonials: "Nemanja Petrić is the reason why I love oDesk! Fantastic writer, fast delivery, smart, organized, experienced and IMO one of oDesks best kept secrets. His writing is clear, concise and interesting. He has perfect English skills, and asks intelligent questions to improve your resume, and applies his years of experience to improving your resume. He will help you get the executive level job you want." "Nemanja was exceptional to work with plus the value he offers is huge. The quality of his work is impeachable and certainly made things easier to get me set with a good looking resume and intro letter. Thank you" "Nemanja is very patient and understanding of the client's need. He is punctual and ask the right questions to get the resume tailored to the job you are trying to get." Why me: If you are searching for an eye-catching, concise and, overall, good looking resume tailored to meet specific standards of your industry, you are on the right place. If you’re looking for a professional who will, unlike some bigger company, make your project a Nº1 priority, you’re on… well, let’s say that you made a wise choice. My biggest advantage is that I have personally reviewed more than 70.000 resumes for a US Internet recruiting company, and fairly large percentage were resumes from people on executive level positions, from biggest corporations in the world (Forbes 500, Forbes Global 2000 etc.). Therefore, my knowledge mostly lies in that significant experience. After learning from thousands of examples and what separates good candidates from not so good ones, I started to write resumes myself. Successfully. Being a journalism student, whose main job is to write on everyday level, also helps. My services include but are not limited to writing: - Resume - Cover letter - LinkedIn (just as important in today’s market) My goal is to tell a story about your professional career in a subtle, but convincing and effective manner, which will help you in landing the desired job. Best regards, Nemanja Petrić

    David C.

    Content Developer, Marketing Copywriter & PR Content Creation

    United Kingdom - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    It takes a blend of skills to create a compelling story. Revenue-generating exposure, credibility and media attention are crucial to businesses of all sizes, and having a product to sell is only part of the battle. Your potential audience won't connect with you based solely on your product. People buy into other people. They buy into the human element, the story, the real life behind the business. My name is David, and I'm a UK-born native English speaker. In a nutshell, I create content that adds life and a human element to your product or business. I provide the content required to connect in an emotional way and kickstart that relationship between you and your prospective clients or customers. I go about this in a number of ways, including; Developing content. The art of storytelling. Connecting with your audience is far more important than simply selling them something. I create the content that will engage your audience and clients on a variety of platforms. Marketing copy. Are you preparing for a fresh launch? Maybe you're a start-up? Got a new product that you can't wait to bring to the market? You have to generate the excitement that you feel for your business or product within your prospective clients, and one of the best ways to do that is by arming yourself with some high quality, to the point marketing copy. Something that will convince potential investors as well as media agencies and industry writers that your product or business is worth talking about or getting involved with. If you're looking to get the word out about your new product, start-up or established company then feel free to get in touch for a chat. We can see what you require and put a plan in place to push your brand to the next level. One thing I believe is important to stress is that I only work with a select number of clients at any one time. This allows me to work with each client individually and ensures I have the time to produce a high quality of work that will fit their requirements. I look forward to hearing from you.
