    A Freelance Writer and Blogger for Businesses

    Nigeria - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 13

    Hello! Need a writer? My name is Aisha Sulaiman. I am a freelance writer, ghostwriter, blogger copywriter and online content writer. I help businesses achieve their marketing goals by writing quality web copy, blog content and effective lead magnets for their marketing campaigns. I also develop and write case studies white papers and eBooks as a tool for your content marketing campaign. Is content creation or development putting you under pressure? Are you a marketing manager, editor or a small business owner with a tight schedule and no time to create awesome blog posts, eBooks, case studies, white papers, newsletters and other marketing materials that can help you get more sales and generate more leads? Then let me help you as a freelance writer to take off that content creation pressure and create content tailored to meet your need for you. Reaching out to people via content is essential as it helps to convey important messages to your audience, clients, students or members as the case may be. You can use articles, blog posts, white papers, reports and so on to engage and deliver information on your behalf to your clients and audience even when you are not there. Hence creating an automated marketing tool for you. This gives your businesses the needed leverage to capture more leads. Do you also find it difficult to write a piece of article, report or eBook that can explain issues to your audience in a simplified form? then you are in the right place. Have no fear I will handle it. Or maybe whenever you sit to write the words just don’t flow and you have a piece of writing to deliver with the deadline so close, I can help you out with that too. Just like a client I had who found it difficult to write, he just feels this block each time he sits to write but the thought keeps flowing inside his head and if he was to just talk, he would be able to pour it all out. So I suggested to him “why don’t you create an audio and send it to me and I will create a piece out of it for you”. This ended up as a ghostwriting project. Whatever your writing needs might be, we can always find a solution for you. All you have to do is contact me. With years of writing experience, you can be sure to get your projects done excellently. First I will work with you to define your audience and the purpose of the write-up. I will then create an outline on the scope of your project with suitable points for you to review. I can also help you with images for blog posts and finally, you will get revisions done to your satisfaction; and the end result? content that is meaningful and fully packed with information. Get in touch and let’s discuss your project.

    United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 3

    "Radhika did an outstanding job and I plan to hire her for recurring work. She worked quickly and did exactly what I asked. I would highly reccommend." "Excellent writer. Understood exactly what I was looking for and delivered it on time. Highly recommended." “Radhika has been an enormous help to my business. She’s the most reliable and proactive person I’ve worked with in a long time.” Are you tired of copywriters who care more about using fancy words than actually taking the time to understand your (or your client’s) customers? Breathe. You’re in the right place now. Hi, I’m Radhika. I’m here to help you channel all that passion & energy you have for serving your customers into copy that immediately builds trust. How many times has this happened to you? You land on a website. You notice it’s about a topic you’re interested in. Great! As you try and dig deeper, you can’t seem to get around the confusing jargon and robotic tone. You move your mouse over to the big red X in the corner of your screen, and you never see that website again. This happens all the time, right? Now, think about this… How many times has a potential customer landed on your website and gone through the EXACT SAME PROCESS? You have tons of dedication & devotion for your business. You really care about helping your customers, but do your customers see that enthusiasm the first time they land on your website? I want to live in a world where landing on a website feels like walking into your favorite coffee shop. You walk in, and the strong smell of coffee overwhelms your senses. Your muscles immediately loosen up, that’s the smell of home. As you walk over to your regular seat where the light hits you just right, the barista addresses you by name and asks if you want the usual. You nod, confident he’ll make it just the way you like it. Do you want your website to feel like your customers' favorite place? I can help with that. I specialize in: * Home pages * About pages * Services/Products pages * Case Studies * FAQ pages * Contact Pages * Sales pages To make this process as smooth as possible for you, I offer a 100% money-back guarantee. (See the “Payment Terms” section of my profile for details.) Your website is the forefront of your entire business. Let me help you make a great first impression to new customers and bolster your reputation with existing customers. Click the green “Hire Me” button at the top of this page to get started. I look forward to hearing from you!
