Copywriting and Content Creation
About this pro
I am a professional writer with several years of communications, marketing, SEO, Social Media, blog and article writing experience. Currently, I am writing website and Social Media content for a variety of clients. My background includes several years of corporate communications and marketing experience for two international firms, where I oversaw and directed website redesign, Social Media strategy, marketing collateral creation, brand compliance, public relations and marketing. Before becoming a successful public relations and marketing professional, I honed my writing skills as a magazine editor and newspaper journalist covering topics including international finance, national real estate investment and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center. For my professional portfolio, bio and recommendations from former colleagues, please visit this my website. I love storytelling and creating website copy that is compelling, informative, engaging and that sells!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I like to charge either by word or by project rather than by the hour. If there is research required for the project, I charge an hourly rate on top of the project fee. However, that is usually a known factor, and I estimate that upfront.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to talk one on one about the project and the client's expectations as well as the particulars of the project. Once in agreement with what the needs and expectations are, we can discuss time and pricing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in Journalism from California State University, Sacramento. I started my career as a journalist working for several newspapers and then as a magazine editor in NYC. When the market began to turn away from print, I went into marketing and public relations. Working for two international firms, I led the marketing, communications and advertising departments.
