    I am looking for a chance to apply my ideas and my artistic skills to any kind of project which involves creativity and perspective. I can design the cover of a magazine, set up AD posters and even come up with a fresh perspective on the image of a certain product. Setting up a plan was always easy for me as I am a positively logical person and the people whom I worked with appreciate me as a gifted and serious leader. At present, I like to believe that what I lack in experience I make up for in talent and dedication and I am looking forward to embarking on new projects.  less

    Let’s face it, there are a lot of writers out there that can give you fast and dirty content - every once in a while they actually write it themselves! If you’re really lucky, they might even sound like they know what they’re talking about 1% of the time… You’re getting something that’s passed through more hands than a cheap glass of liquor down south. I don’t know about you, but for me, that just won’t do. “Isn’t there a better way, Sara?” Yes, yes there is! I’ll show you how to open your audience’s hearts, their minds, their wallets… How to push past all the jaded, skeptical, feel-bad experiences they’ve had in the past and get to a place where they still dream, still hope for a better self, a better partner, better finances, better futures… They’ll finally be able to take the plunge, to take a leap of faith, to embrace the unknown… Because deep down in their hearts they know the only solution to their problems is what YOU have to offer them! Your messaging will appeal to the greedy little part of their brain that makes them buy your products, your services, your ideas… All while thinking it was their idea in the first place. If you’ve read this far, imagine how far I can lead your (future) customers! How much time are you spending trying to write something when you could be growing your business, networking, doing your thing? How much time are you spending editing poorly written articles or hunting down a writer that has mastery over time and space… I mean… the English language? Isn’t your time worth more than that? Of course it is! Almost 100 oDesk clients love me and you will too - because my copy *converts*. Click that contact button and tell me a bit about what you do and what you need. Thanks for reading!  less

    I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO AM I? I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. WHAT IS MY BACKGROUND? I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. JUST HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? By asking questions, listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. HOW CAN YOU LEARN MORE ABOUT ME?

    I have a wealth of experience from over forty years of service to industry, community organizations, and churches. Due to my spouse's declining health, I now work from home. My strengths are Writing, Editing, Spreadsheets (Excel, Lotus, Quatro Pro, etc.), and Technical Detail Work. I make extensive use of spreadsheets, developing special templates as needed to facilitate various operations. I've also assisted in the development of a manufacturing facility's ISO 9001 program and related documentation. I have, for example, produced extensive ISO related Quality Control and Production "Process Sheets" and "Job Travelers", which serve to direct the actual processes of production. In spite of all that technical detail, my preference is to work on tasks which assist and/or promote Christian Churches, Schools, and Service Organizations. I look forward to using my skills for the mutual benefit of your organization and my family!  less

  • No Pants is the New Pants

    I tell my clients if you want customers to look your way, you have to give them the honest-to-Pete real you. How does your product live in the world? How does it help people? Why should they believe you? What can you give them that no one else can? My advice for the adventurous: Take off the pants. Lose the pretense, the jargon and the self-aggrandizement. It is not about you. It is about what your company and your products do for your customers. That is the story I will help you tell. One of the wisest things I've ever read about product marketing came from the writer of a children's book. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, creator of The Little Prince, said, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work ... teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." For business owners not sure of what to do with the internet, digital media, mobile technology or social media, I am their digital marketing, content marketing and e commerce specialist. I help them figure out what draws attention from a finicky market and how to tie their marketing efforts to profitability. As a writer, I work with clients who insist upon personality, uniqueness and courage in their marketing. Content is at the heart of a thriving company. It requires doing more than just putting words on paper. It means showing customers the value you deliver. Your customer is the only one that matters in the conversation. Make sure they know that. I have worked with a lot of clients who have been willing to show their heart. Here are some of their websites: www.beards.net, www.seoriver.com, www.mywifipassword.com, www.dayoconsulting.com, www.enterprisetraining.com and www.rezoop.com. Companies are in the business of making money. Unknown territories like SEO, social media, Web analytics and new media are a little less intimidating with a little (or a lot) of help from someone whose business is marketing with messages. There are a lot of terrible writers out there. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. My hourly rate and project bid prices reflect experience, quality and innovation. Mediocre rates will give you mediocre messages that will bring you mediocre results. If you are okay with mediocrity, please look elsewhere.  less
