    Ted Bendixson

    Creative Writer and iPhone App Entrepreneur

    United States - Last active: 07/21/2012 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    THESE ARE MY TERMS: -Project minimum of $150 -My hourly rate is $50/hr. No less. -Please do not contact me unless you are willing to work within these terms. My name is Ted Bendixson, and I'm a freelance writer who specializes in PR content, blogging, and copywriting. I believe that the simplest message is often the best one, so I really focus on figuring out who you are and what matters most to your customers. Seriously, that's it. No rocket science here. My clients come from all over the world. I've helped out numerous web start ups, creative professionals, software development companies, popular websites, and countless other small to medium sized businesses. I'm really good at figuring out what gets people curious so they keep reading. I know how to do it because I've experienced success with my own blog. The following is my website / blog where you can learn more about who I am, how I write, and some of the advice I have for other freelancers, entrepreneurs, and online professionals. http://www.tedbendixson.com I am also an iPhone application developer and entrepreneur. Last year, my team and I released an iPhone app that generates a healthy return for us. I know what a good idea for an app looks like, how to build up hype for a release, and how to continue to make sales long after you put yourself out there. I'm also fluent in Objective C and Xcode, the languages of the iPhone. One little note about the pay rate I have listed. I charge what I charge in order to offset the other activities I have to do to run my business. $50 per hour might seem like a lot, but when you're spending a few hours each day writing emails and looking for that next big client, you just have to charge that much to stay afloat. Also, because I am self-employed, I have to pay all of my social security and health insurance myself. So realize that you're getting the highest quality writing from any contractor you're likely to find, and it's at a rather competitive rate. Most of my clients don't require more than one revision for any piece I write, and if you ever require more than two revisions, we might just have to go our separate ways. Sometimes it's simply a matter of compatibility. I've had a few of the same clients for years, and I hope you can be one of them.

    Seeking challenging creative, descriptive, or technical writing for any medium (brochures, displays, exhibitions, leaflets, websites, blogs). I can tweak and enhance any written English text by responding directly to the desired approach and wishes of the contractor. My ambition is to develop a portfolio of varied work that can support the projects that I take on in the UK to improve the interpretation of museum collections, making them more accessible to the public. I need that extra financial security that could come from varied projects tackled on O desk, and it keeps life fresh and stimulating.

    Experience and Skill: I do writing and marketing.

    United States - Last active: 04/15/2013 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

    I've carved a niche for myself in writing for clients that need someone who can not only write well for your company but also not be a pain to deal with. That is a winning combination, I've found. Rather than a text-producing robot churning out bland work, I offer you a person on the other end of the line who can disagree respectfully if he thinks things are going in the wrong direction and offer alternative solutions. I'll do my best to make sure that the money you've payed to me will make you more money.

    Creative Director

    Kenya - Last active: 11/20/2013 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 10

    Being a copy writer, my pen and paper make for my chosen addiction. I have been writing for over 6 years, corresponding for various publications and creating advertising collateral for several companies. I am currently the creative director in charge of the copy department of Habari Consulting ltd, an online and offline intelligent marketing firm. My duties revolve around strategy development, concept building, and interpreting briefs to conceive effective marketing collateral for clients. I craft from taglines to website content; from conceptualizing the marketing strategy to editing and production. My work entails both online and offline collateral; print ads, radio and TV scripts, magazines, newsletters, electronic publications, online banner ads, e-zines e.t.c. Additionally, I have a strong background in project management and research due to my 4 year work experience in contact centres where I developed my marketing skills and research techniques. This groomed me from handling one to multiple projects in the long run positioning me as an operations manager in the industry. Through this background, the idea for establishing my own research and advertising firm was stemmed hence Utalk ltd was formed. This is a fairly new company that revolutionizes research techniques in Kenya by placing them on an online platform. On a more personal level i’m working to enhance my passion - writing, by completing and publishing a collection of fictional short stories in the course of the year.
