    Small Business Social Media Strategist / Writer

    United States - Portfolio: 41

    I am a recent graduate of Champlain College with a bachelor's degree in Communication and a specialization in Professional Writing. Since graduating in December (2013) I have been primarily working with small businesses to help them develop social media strategies. I have found great opportunities in digital marketing for small businesses. The results always please the clients and I am happy to change their minds about the benefits of social media. One of my biggest gripes with myself since graduating is that I haven't had many opportunities to professionally write. I am hoping Elance will be a place where I can find chances to blog, write copy and otherwise express my skills as a writer. In addition to what I learned in college, I have also taken an intensive 5-week course on search engine optimization and am very knowledgeable and experienced in writing with SEO in mind.

    Sales Copy That Sells

    Increase your conversions with compelling copy

    Canada - Portfolio: 7

    If you’ve ever asked yourself: - Why aren’t my readers opting into my list? - How come my sales page isn’t converting like I’d hoped? - Why did my email campaign result in relatively few sales? - What else can I write about on my blog? - Then you’ve come to the right place. Maybe you’ve already taken a course on sales copy but you’re struggling with how to phrase all your benefits in a way that’s compelling but not salesy. Or perhaps you thought that you nailed your landing page… but the conversion rate isn’t performing the way you’d hoped. It can be frustrating when you have a great product or service but no one seems to be biting. Alternatively, maybe you’ve had significant success with your writing to date, but now that you’re getting more sales (kudos!), you no longer have the time to craft high-quality posts on the regular. You need someone who can provide you with sizzling copy so that you can continue to connect with your readers, and, y’know, actually do the work you set out to do in the first place. So why not get some personalized help? Here’s how to determine if we’d work well together: 1. You already have an established audience. Great copy can increase your sales, but only if someone’s around to read it. If you’re not there yet, try implementing a few of the techniques from this post and get back to me. I’ll be here to help you out once you have more subscribers. 2. You have a product or service that brings incredible value to your market. I don’t work with spammers or people who are just interested in a quick buck. If you care about improving the lives of your subscribers in a big way, then we should talk. If you think we’d be a great fit, send me a quick message. I’ll be in touch to answer your questions, talk about your goals and give any advice. If our goals meet up, we can talk about the next steps to increase your sales.

    Blog writer and editor

    United States - Portfolio: 6

    I have been managing the comic strip blog "Oh Mercy MiMi" since its launch on Jan. 31, 2014. For this blog (which I co-own), I write reviews of comic books and edit reviews written by the blog's other owner. I also prepare interviews of comic authors, artists, and animators for posting by editing the completed interviews and writing introductory material for them. Here is the blog URL: http://ohmercymimi.tumblr.com/ I have always had a natural inclination to easily express myself through the written word. All through my years in college and graduate school, I received high grades and commendations from my professors regarding the quality of my written assignments. My writing and editing skills enhanced my work in scientific research and teaching, and they continue to be an invaluable asset in my responsibilities as a co-owner of an arts and education business. I am proficient in a variety of writing types and styles, and honing my craft is an ongoing venture of mine.
