Since 2010, I have worked as a freelance editor, writer, ... moreand marketer with a focus on one thing: Outstanding content. My work in the digital space includes large-scale content projects for eBay and other companies, but I have come to find that my passion lies with small businesses, and I've been fortunate enough to carve out a niche for myself doing just that: helping small business owners and entrepreneurs with all of their content needs. Whether I'm writing or editing, my goal is the same: deliver clear, concise, appealing copy for my clients. I have experience in an eclectic array of fields—I've written and edited corporate and executive biographies, e-commerce product descriptions, and articles for topics such as health, food, fashion, home and garden, insurance, financial planning, and more. Lately, I've focused my skills on website copy, blogging, and marketing materials, as well as SEO, particularly in relation to e-commerce, entrepreneurship, and technology. With each project, I meticulously research the topic and provide original, worthwhile content that goes above and beyond the generic. One of my biggest strengths is taking complex material and breaking it down into an easily accessible discussion. I always strive to get into the mindset of the target audience, so that I can answer their questions and ease their concerns. Over the years, I've developed multiple style guides and I love helping to shape a company's voice. My command of grammar is impeccable, and even though I am a native U.S. English speaker, I have also done work for Australian and U.K.-based content. I also have experience using social media platforms for businesses, including Facebook and HootSuite. My skillsets also include SEO and basic HTML. If you're looking for an enthusiastic blogger or copywriter who learns quickly and embraces new challenges and opportunities, I'd love to hear from you! less
