    US-based Health, Fitness, and Marketing Article Writer

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    Website: www.thehealthycopywriter.com The Truth About Diet, Exercise, and Weight Loss An estimated 70 percent of all adults in the United States are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means that in the U.S. alone, 154.7 million adults have a weight problem. Many attempt to follow fad diets, take dietary supplements, or even resort to weight reduction surgeries to lose body fat and change the way they look. But most fail. 2 Things Health and Fitness Content Must Provide These approaches to weight loss can serve as a starting point for people who want to lose weight, boost their metabolism, get in shape, and build muscle. But in order to be successful at weight loss, body transformation, or any muscle-building plan, there are two critical components that need to be part of the content you provide your readers: Education and motivation. Most people who want to lose weight, decrease body fat or build muscle, don’t quite know where to start or what to do. The result is a pattern of yo-yo dieting, weight loss and weight gain, or half-hearted attempts at progressive muscle building and weight-loss workouts. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Evidence-Based Content for Everyday Readers From a content perspective, if you want to tip the scale in the right direction and really help people achieve their health and fitness goals, you need high-quality, educational, engaging, and content-rich information blended with a little motivation to help them stay in the fight, keep trying, and put in the effort to make lasting lifestyle changes. Season that with evidenced-based research on diet and exercise, and your followers will keep coming back for more. Hire Me My name is Evan Jensen. I have a master’s degree in journalism and more than a decade of experience as a reporter, editor, and freelance writer for newspapers, magazines and corporate clients. As a kid, I watched my obese parents try every diet in the book without success, and resolved not to take the same path. I’ve finished 30 plus marathons and ultra-marathons, including a 100-mile mountain endurance run. And I’ve written thousands of articles in my writing career, including many about diet, exercise, fitness, nutrition, chronic disease, and preventive care. If you have writing or editing needs for articles, e-books, blogs, newsletters, press releases, feature stories, Q&As, case studies, marketing campaigns, or anything else, give me a shot at delivering high-quality content and making a good first impression. - Evan

    Writer, Editor, Translator, Thinker

    Germany - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3

    I worked as an investigative journalist and editor in Washington, DC, for over a decade. In that time, I wrote and edited at least 10,000 stories. I mostly covered Congress, the White House and other parts of the federal government but I was also able to hit the road to cover things like the Republican and Democratic presidential nominating conference, Hurricane Katrina and various campaigns. Then I moved to Thailand for a year to write a novel and, when I came back to the U.S., I started a company with two of my best friends. I'm still not sure where that is going to go but I at least learned a bunch of things about online marketing, project management, design, etc. And, most of all, I once again realized that, even when not everything is going according to plan, life is best when one is pursuing one's dream. In addition to being fluent in English, I also speak German at the same level and can carry a conversation in Spanish ... especialmente si la otra persona no habla muy rápido.

    Web Copywriter and Content Strategist

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 18

    ***About Me***_______________________________________________________________ I specialize in one thing and one thing only: writing personality-packed, research-based copy that gets you results online. Currently, I work full-time at Rocket Media, a web design + internet marketing agency (http://rocketmedia.com/). Over the past few years, I've written online content for dozens of our clients in a punctual, professional manner. For what it's worth: I have a B.A in Communications and an M.B.A focused in marketing. So, yeah, I work hard. ***What I can wordsmith for you***_______________________________________________ *Website content (home page, about us page, product pages, etc) *Landing pages *Email newsletters *Blog Articles *Ebooks *Case studies *Social media contest copy *PPC and Social Ads *Transactional emails *Email automation workflows Note: If you need me to work with a team, I have experience working with web designers and developers to write copy for responsive website redesigns. ***How we'll work wonderfully together***______________________________________________ Any writer can say they're professional, so let me show you that I am by explaining the best way we can work together. (Note: Obviously this process can change depending on the work—especially for smaller projects—but it's a good starting point). *Step 1: One FREE 1-hour call* Before you commit to hiring me, we can talk in more detail about your project, including: *What your big goals are (web copy is merely the means to a larger end) *What your current problems are *What results do you want to get out of my services (dolla dolla bill, y'all!) *More about you and your target audience Hit me up on Skype to chat about these details. After the call, I'll detail a scope of work, time needed to complete the work and pricing. If we jive, then it's on to... *Step 2: Deep dive research* Feeling comfy enough to hire me? Good. All good copy is research-based copy. So at this point I'll uncover more about: *Who you—or your brand— are so that I can write in your tone of voice *Your products and services, so I can uncover their features and benefits *The specifics of your target audience, using the right tools and online research methods (how deep I go here depends on how well you know your audience and your budget) *Step 3: Create a strategy and/or needed deliverables* Once I've gather enough information, I'll create a plan of attack and/or review deliverables with you. These can include: *Target audience personas *Voice and tone guides *Email workflow overview *Editorial calendars (for articles and newsletters) This will get you and I on the same page before I write a word. *Step 4: I write; you review* Self explanatory. You'll receive a copy deck to review, and we'll hash it out cage-match style. *Step 5: Measure and adjust* If we're working together on an on-going project and I have access to analytics of any sort, I'll use what I learn from that to alter the copy or adjust how I writer for the next assignment. Step 6: You and I party and leave each other 5-star reviews. Because, in the end, we should enjoy life. :) Sound good? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
