    Creative Copywriter

    South Africa - Last active: 18 hours ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    Great copy writing is a balancing act. On the one side you have boundless imagination and infinite possibilities - the need to capture the attention of an audience, tell a great story and create emotional investment in the product. On the other side are the functional requirements of the project - the structure needed to hit selling points, understand the market and ensure that the message is clear, concise and on brief. Creative writing is my great passion. I have a background in writing for film and comics, which allowed me develop a range of tones, voices and how to combine them in order to tell the best "story". Working for a production company as a writer, video editor and producer, has given me the advertising experience needed to create copy on brief. I've seen video and print campaigns from many different angles, which was crucial in helping me understand what is required in every part of the chain. Many writers only have experience from that point of view, which can be limiting. I have a lot of web experience and am currently focusing on brand identity, strategic writing, and web content.

    Translator English/Spanish to German

    Germany - Last active: 18 hours ago - Tests: 26 - Portfolio: 4

    As accurate as possible, as fast as necessary. My specialties as a translator are the humanities, especially music. I have translated experimental literature, prefaces, and essays for presentations and professional journals. While I generally work fast, I can be very dogged about researching problem cases. My knowledge of English is certified: I have studied English linguistics (M.A., University of Tübingen). Formal knowledge of German grammar was always on my radar as a translator, but was completed during my marriage with a non-German-speaker.. I have since taught German as a foreign language to Indians, Spaniards and Americans (with English and Spanish as preliminary teaching languages). Getting acquainted with new software doesn't scare me. I have worked with spreadsheets and word processors on Windows, Apple and Linux machines and with databases on Apple.

    Copywriter, Conversion Expert

    Canada - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 3

    Did you hear the story about the advertisement that no one read, yet it still pulled millions of dollars in revenue? No, me neither. Because no matter how many hours you spend on marketing materials, if no one reads them you've simply wasted your time. But I'll let you in on the secret to supercharging the response rate of your marketing efforts: Really. Good. Copy. The thing is, no one reads ads. People read only what they find interesting. Sometimes, it's an ad. But if you want to capitalize on that "sometimes", you need a writer who understands what make good copy so… good. That's what I do. I'm not just a copywriter, I'm your on-call, conversion-chasing, always-testing, human-shaped marketing MACHINE! I spend (almost) all my time studying, writing, and testing copy to make sure it will bring you the response you're after. But how can you be sure I'm the writer for you? Well, consider my answers to the three most important questions you can ask yourself when hiring a copywriter on Upwork: 1. Am I going to have to re-write every gosh-darn word of what I end up paying for? 2. Will this fellow deliver within the timeframe? 3. Can this person write copy that leads to immediate action? Action that I define and have a need for? The answers to your questions—in my case—are: — No. — Yes. — Definitely! How can I be so sure? ENGLISH First of all, English is my mother tongue. But there are lots of native speakers in the world, right? What sets me apart is my dedication to this language. I'm a grammar fiend, a stickler for spelling, and a chronic bookworm. PUNCTUAL Second, I'm a firm believer in the following: "Early is on-time, on-time is late, and late is unacceptable." Basically, I'm the weird guy that shows up to the party 5 minutes early. It's a condition, I need help. But lucky for you, this means I live by your deadlines and treat them with the utmost respect. COPYWRITING Third… Consider this case study: This copy you're reading RIGHT NOW with YOUR OWN EYES is well below-the-fold. You've had to scroll down A SIGNIFICANT DISTANCE to get to this point. Your index finger is probably tired by now… …And all the result of a piece of compelling copy. Now, I understand the difference between encouraging someone to read my Upwork profile, and order ten widgets in guacamole green is astronomical. But you do see the underlying principles, don't you? That a few words, chosen carefully, can compel a reader to take action? Aren't you at least a little convinced I have what it takes? Let's start talking right now and allow me to convince you fully. Contact me today and let's get to work. All the best, Jason Sheil PS. You may find it easier to describe project details through a phone conversation. If you'd like to get in touch via Skype, I'd be happy to do so.
