    Proficient writer, copywriter, editor and translator since 2007

    Romania - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 3

    I started to work as copywriter in 2007. Since then, I have worked with people who needed content for blogs, websites, website directories, social media, various online publications, e-books, cultural magazines. The delivered content has covered all sorts of fields: tourism, fashion, health, beauty, industrial works, medicine, alternative therapies, technologies, psychology, philosophy, e-commerce and whatnot. My collaborators' appreciation of my work has led me to believe that, if there is a niche for each of us, then writing is my strongest suit. Fortunately, my copywriter skills are complemented by my experience in translation, which is, I believe, a plus, since penetrating a market requires serious knowledge of that market's language. My writing, however, is not exclusively dedicated to marketing. Academic writing, journalistic approaches, as well as literary writing add to my list of skills. Moreover, I look forward to experiencing new styles of writing: my taste for challenges has always been the best guide to expanding my horizon in understanding both the essence of writing and the logic of the field I had to approach from scratch through writing. Plenty of my collaborators also appreciated the fact I have always tried to deliver a complete product: we all know writing does not come down to a fine choice of words. A copywriter's job also implies documentation, choosing reliable sources, as well as possible adjoining skills: in my case, basic photo processing and basic html knowledge (the latter has helped me provide additional services, e.g. data entry). My goal here is to serve people interested in a copywriter's services and, while doing so, refine my skills and, why not, learn and develop new ones. It has always been my ambition to prove that, in a world where visual information and the taste for such sources seem to overthrow the written data and the appetite for reading clear and accurate content (it's not for nothing that they say a picture is worth a thousand words), writing and reading remain the essential tools of people who hunger for knowledge and intelligent entertainment. In short, I write with passion, ambition and accuracy, complying with my collaborator's requirements, however demanding they might be.

    Quality copy is the driving force behind a strong business or brand presence. Quick-and-dirty SEO articles will generate a brief spurt in web traffic, but won't sustain the ever changing tides of Google's algorithm. Substandard content will also drive readers away as quickly as they come. No one wants to visit a website or read copy with error-filled and uninteresting content that doesn't inform. Avoid the unsatisfactory consequences that lousy content brings by hiring me to write for websites, blogs, or any other mode of publication. I am a researcher, copywriter, and editor who can write on any topic. The attention to detail and quality of my writing make me the best option for well-written content that drives traffic. Grammatical mistakes weaken articles. I provide editorial services to ensure your copy will make the strongest impact possible without losing your voice in the process. Making an impact on potential leads is paramount to strengthening any business or brand. I do this by writing interesting and informative articles that keep the reader's attention from the beginning of the article to the call to action at the bottom. I also edit copy to help strengthen the syntax and grammar that keep readers engaged. A little bit more about me: I've taught Grammar, Composition, Literature, and Bible in third and fourth grade classes at a private school in Tyler, TX. I've also taught adults how to write and speak well along with helping lead college-aged students in a missions training program. I am currently in my last semester of my Biblical Studies degree. Let me know if you'd like to partner on your project.
