"Lucas can do it all as a writer. He can spin any idea on a boring topic into an on-page bravura through humor, wit, insight or knowledge. He responds well to suggestions and swiftly implements them into his stories. It is a pleasure to oversee his writing." [James O'Connor, eFileCabinet] "Lucas has the ability of making people feel comfortable and important, in any setting, without even knowing it. From what I gathered while working alongside him, he is one of the best examples of a true copywriter." [Rhett Ahlander, UVU] Sounds impressive enough, right? Well, it's true! Sure, I - just like everyone else - have my flaws, but when it comes to producing top-notch, SEO-driven web and sales copy for startups and small businesses, I always deliver. That's a guarantee. After all, here on Upwork, you're having to filter through hundreds of copywriters who claim to provide "conversion-driven results." Sound familiar? Yup, I've heard that answer before. Sadly, most don't know how to do just that. If you're going to pay for reliable, results-driven web or sales copy, you deserve to get it. Why is this so important, you ask? Any small business owner - myself included - knows how difficult it can be to get things up and running. That's why you're here, right? You've got an incredible product or service worthy of proper promotion and instead of focusing on customers, you're stuck dealing with any one or combination of the following startup-related issues: 1) Raising Capital 2) Investors & Valuation 3) Talent Acquisition 4) Research & Development 5) Customer Acquisition & Retention .... that last one is of particular interest, isn't it? This is where I come into the picture. As an SEO and Sales Copywriter for startups, I make my money by FIRST helping you make yours. My goal is to both attract and maintain paying customers through written text. Basically, my copy is working for you and your small, up-and-coming business when ACTION is taken on the part of a prospective client. You'll know my copy is working when your product or service is purchased at a higher frequency, free consultation appointments are on the rise, registration for digital courses and webinars improves, an email list finally begins to grow or more information about your company is requested. In layman’s terms, I’m in the business of making you and your startup money through awesome traditional and digital copy. To make this happen, I specialize in the following copy types: * Email Marketing Campaigns * Sales Letters * General Web Copy * Video Marketing Scripts * SEO-Friendly Blogging * Miscellaneous [brochures, social posts, infographics, etc.] There's a secret to all of this. Do you want to know what it is? Seriously, it's much more basic than you probably think ... WRITE LIKE YOU TALK. Seems like it’d be pretty easy, right? Though seemingly simple, it’s one of those tasks that’s easier said than done. If you don’t believe me, sit down for a few minutes and try to emulate your own voice and style through written words. And at this method’s core - MY METHOD, mind you - is something even fewer copywriters understand: audience. I’ve spent the last several years of my life producing jaw-dropping copy for personal injury law firms, financial agencies, substance abuse facilities, auto dealerships, fitness centers, smartphone apps and a host of other industries. Because of this, I understand what audiences want. My “Write Like You Talk” tactic ONLY works when a copywriter is able to mimic the voice of an interest-specific reader. Simply put, if you’ve got a startup that’s in dire need of some cash generation, allow me to prove myself to you by way of your next project. Needless to say, I’ve got the experience, portfolio and references to make me your best company’s best option for copy production. Listen, as a startup or small business, you can’t afford to waste time with copywriters who make booming promises and then run off with their tails between their legs when things don’t work out. On the other hand, I’m creative, flexible, hardworking, a great writer, a pleasure to work with and - most importantly - ACCOUNTABLE. Challenge: Care to see if I’ll deliver on an initial, self-imposed deadline? Go ahead - click the “Hire Me” button and invite me to apply for your next job. Now, note the time. If I don’t respond within 60 minutes of your inquiry, then I don’t deserve your work. When/If I do get back to you within the 60-minute timeframe, feel free to fire any and all questions my way. I’ll be happy to provide you with honest answers so we can see if I’m the best fit for your startup’s copywriting needs. I’m confident I will be. Thanks so much for your time. I can’t wait to get started!

Jill of All Trades and Mothering Mama

United States

In 2016 there's no time to mess around. We've got to get our goals accomplished by having what we REALLY need to get across capture our intended audience with enough passion for REAL changes to be made. I take on the role of not only mother to my own children, but of Mothering Mama, she who delivers the facts without sugar-coating and practices tough love. I have worked professionally in many areas including graphic design, banking, bookkeeping, framing, professional organizing, waitressing, retail, telemarketing, bar tending, coffee, painting, cleaning, landscaping, office assisting, business start-up, hostessing and modeling. Mostly though has been my growing repertoire from working with children, as I've done for the past eighteen years, with children of all ages in a variety of settings including pre-school teaching full-time all ages, shadowing children with special needs full-time, being my city's top go-to babysitter, teaching enrichment classes, Sunday School teaching, running annual camps at my country home and being a full-time nanny for three years. The magic behind the way in which I was able to accomplish so much and also travel the country, have relationships, practice archery, film a children's show, run an all-organic gourmet vegan kitchen, write novels and play the trumpet to name a few more things - is the same magic behind my daily life as I now am in my fourth year of running a successful at-home daycare, mother, homeschool and cloth diaper my exceptional young children. My passion is educating both myself and others and so research is a daily hobby of mine as well as using keen intuition to filter through the internet for the good stuff. If the pay is right, I would love to help spread this magic over your business. Sincerely, A Rae Hartless

Copy Editor

Do you know that "just deserts" has nothing to do with dessert? That "Dumpster" and "Realtor" are trademarks that should be capitalized? Do you know when to use an en-dash? Misspellings, grammatical errors, poor formatting, and inconsistencies in style are all signs of an amateur writer. Let me help you look your best. I am an academic librarian with excellent proofreading skills and extensive writing experience. I am an expert on grammar and comfortable with Chicago, AP, APA, and MLA styles. I will make sure that your writing is clean and consistent; if you write "theater" on page 7 but "theatre" on page 41, I will notice. I am available to copyedit* books (fiction and nonfiction), articles, theses and dissertations, and web content. Publishing has never been easier; don't stand out for the wrong reasons. *"Copyedit" is one word according to Merriam-Webster.
