    IT Sales & Technical Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 8

    Every word counts. My time as a salesperson taught me how crucial it is to resonate with your prospective customers within your first your first two sentences; otherwise you are already forgotten. Nowhere is this more true than in the I.T. world. We can easily turn customers away by burying them in highly technical features and benefits. As a sales consultant, I learned how to translate “tech speak” from engineers on my team into “business speak” for my clients. Let me create the web copy, email templates, cold-calling scripts and any other communications that will allow you to have real business discussions with prospects and clients, and to keep them engaged throughout the entire sales process.
