#1 Native US English Content Writer/Editor/Proofreader/SEO/VA

United States - Tests: 26 - Portfolio: 21

“Quality, quality, quality: never waver from it, even when you don't see how you can afford to keep it up. When you compromise, you become a commodity and and then you die.” [Gary Hirshberg] I am a U.S.-based native English speaker and writer. My English is American; however, I regularly work with British businesses, so I can do that as well. I have outstanding skills in grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation and style, and can significantly edit work, if necessary, without losing the author's voice. I have a keen eye for (and ability to fix) typos, awkward use of language, clichés, style inconsistencies and other problems in articles, blog posts, ads, brochures, landing pages, websites, e-books and entire publications. I also understand and appreciate the relationship between text and search engine optimization when writing for the Web. I always approach my work with creativity and energy. I’m fast, accurate, write with spirit & humor, and even have the ability to inject interest and personality into dreary technical topics! My proofreading and copy editor experience includes numerous online publishers, websites, a law firm, an IT firm, an employee health/pension benefits plan and more. I regularly work with WordPress and Joomla sites, but can also proofread/edit source code with Notepad++. My SEO strengths include: • Ability to learn the language of your target audience • Knowledge of search engine algorithms • Keyword research and analysis • Ability to analyze site usability and architecture • Well-versed in the importance of keyword-focused breadcrumb navigation • Understanding of HTML tags and markup that comprise web pages and how to optimize them • Image optimization • Traffic analysis • Link analysis • Relevant external link building • Internal link optimization • Proper anchor text optimization • Strong communication skills • Skillful writing of keyword-optimized content • Well-versed in content distribution • Ability to find content gaps • Seasoned editor/proofreader • Experienced at social integration to leverage its power for any business • Google Analytics and Google Webmaster Tools • Google Authorship/rich snippets I also specialize in creating WordPress websites and managing your WordPress content.

As an experienced bid writer and a member of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals, I provide tender assistance and bid management services to busy entrepreneurs and business owners worldwide. I have in-depth knowledge and working experience of "both sides of the fence" having started my career as a Procurement Officer, responsible for supplier selection, tender adjudication and contract management - which means that I know what the Buyer wants and why they ask specific questions. Since 2012, I have successfully assisted various companies from a variety of industries to write persuasive winning tenders and proposals by providing the following services: 1. Tender evaluation Evaluation of previous tenders to identify gaps and weaknesses. Provision of a comprehensive report, detailing specific suggestions and alternative approaches to minimize perceived weaknesses and improve chances of success. 2. Tender assistance and copy writing You provide the information. I re-write the content using a neuromarketing approach to position you as the preferred option by highlighting the risks to the buyer of what could happen if they use anybody else. You review the first draft. Before submission I do a final review to ensure your tender complies with all the requirements and that you submit a professional, competitive bid. 3. Bid library compilation Although every tender document is different and requires a bespoke approach, some content is requested time and again. I create and prepare a generic library of templates and re-usable content to save you precious time when writing the next tender.
