    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.

    Scientific or medical research editor/ writer/ proof reader

    United Kingdom - Tests: 2

    Scientific Researcher, academic science writer/ editor: Analytical Chemistry, Natural Chemistry, Environmental Toxicology, Biochemistry. A brief summary of education and experience: -Four years experience as a Research Associate at Kings College London University, -PhD in Environmental Toxicology and Microbiology, -Scientific Editorial Assistant at British Journal of Cancer, -BSc in Medical Biochemistry at Kings College London University. I am hardworking, enthusiastic and reliable. I am highly motivated and take pride in completing tasks to the best of my ability. Detailed outline of education and experience: Research Associate on the Traffic project, Kings College London University: The traffic project is a large multi-institution research project to better understand the health problems caused by air pollution and noise from traffic in London. My responsibility in this project was to determine pollution toxicity and metal content on a daily basis, then to construct an analytical data-set of daily time-series measurements comprising a comprehensive range of pollution metrics. This involved intensive laboratory processing as well as analysis and handling of a meta-database. Research Associate on the Exhale study, Kings College London University: The Exhale study is a project to assess the impact of the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ), introduced as a measure to improve the air quality in London. This study was designed to assess the impact of the LEZ on the respiratory health of school children in East London. My responsibility in this study involved conducting health assessments in 8-9 year-old children, including measurements of respiratory health, biomarkers of exposure to traffic-related air pollution, genetic susceptibility to the effects of air pollution and systemic response to air pollution. As part of this study, we also provided education for the Year 4 class at each school we visited, teaching them about the science and history of air pollution. BBSRC funded PhD Studentship, University of Dundee: I completed a PhD in Environmental Toxicology, within the Division of Molecular Microbiology, investigating the toxicity and occurrence of a naturally occurring aquatic neurotoxin, produced by cyanobacteria (Blue-Green Algae). BMAA is associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS and acts as an excitotoxin by hyper-activating glutamatergic Ca2+ signalling pathways. This provided me with many skills including excellent research experience, independent project management, lateral thinking, multi-tasking, presentation and analytical skills. In addition I achieved a wealth of tertiary level teaching experience; directing practical laboratory demonstration for undergraduate courses, as well as being responsible for the full time supervision of undergraduate and master’s students. I developed very good communication skills, presenting my personal and collaborative research at many international conferences, to a range of medical and scientific disciplines. August 2005 – February 2006 British Journal of Cancer, CRUK Scientific Editorial Assistant • Position included all aspects of assistance for publishing authors and editorial board, allowing me to develop my scientific communication skills and understanding of the peer-reviewed publishing process. • Administrative duties included receipt and recording of manuscripts, proof reading, referencing and organising referees.
