Romania - Tests: 5

I want to make your product/service/business sound like it's the best thing your potential client can find on the market. I write engaging content that focuses on improving SEO, by using the perfect keyword density in easy-to-read content. I always go the extra mile to give my client the finished product that he expects. Deadlines are very important to me, and I am never late to deliver. Most of my writing relates to: product descriptions, product reviews, and SEO orientated blogging. Creative writing is a part of marketing-orientated content writing, but I see them as two different skills. Regular content writing involves research, and it has a predetermined goal. Creative writing is a passion for me, and I want to include my passion in my work as much as possible.
