    Powerful Content Writer

    Lebanon - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 16

    I'm an American native and a University of Michigan Business/Marketing graduate. I have 10 years experience in creating web content and, also, for the past 5 years I've been the lead content developer for a web technologies firm and have helped my employer and all their clients create professional web content from scratch, edit already-written content, and most importantly, maximize the content's appeal by making it as market-oriented and search-engine-optimized as possible. Basically, my strengths lie in two areas: First, I create/edit any web content, regardless of its type or subject orientation. Secondly, I intensely focus my content towards maximizing its SEO power & market-orientation. Please refer to my portfolio for a small taste of what I can do. Regarding my skills, as a former columnist & editor, along with significant experience as an English teacher and currently a full-time professional content writer, you will not find a more creative & impressive content writer
