    Need sales copy? Press releases? Web Content? Copyediting? You've arrived. Read below to learn how I can put my 10 years experience to work for you, whether you're an entrepreneur trying to break into a market or a large corporation trying to remain engaged with your customers. When it comes to writing direct response copy that instills in your prospects the overwhelming urgency to click that button, call that number or fill in that form -- like a 250-pound runningback barreling toward the end zone, I've learned from the best: From experts of the ages like Eugene Schwartz, Gary Halbert and Clayton Makepeace to modern masters like Dan Kennedy, John Carlton and Drew Eric Whitman, I've learned from acknowledged industry trailblazers. And you know what? They're advice is almost universally the same. The things that make us tick haven't changed much over the years, so I stick with the recipes for success that have been cooked up by copywriters like me since modern advertising began. Whether your target audience includes CEO's, consumers or small business owners, my job is to make sure they get it through their heads that your product or service is something they simply can't live without. Want to convince a CEO that if he doesn't jump on this trend, he's destroying his business? Convince a small business owner that only you can provide the services she needs to get ahead and stay there? Convince a consumer that your widget is the must-have gadget of the year? Contact me, and we'll make it happen. Direct response is just one of the many areas of copywriting at which I excel. Does your company have something to brag about? Well, then, you need a highly targeted press release, one that speaks to your industry colleagues and potential customers in language they understand. Is your website old and tired and in need of a rewrite, or maybe an entirely new approach? Let's talk about your requirements and target market, and I'll show you what I can do. I'm also a fast, accurate and extremely fastidious editor. Whether you're publishing an eBook, a thesis, a technical report, a press release or anything in between, I'm your backstop - someone that won't be happy until your document shines. If you're on the fence - not sure if I'm the one you want - just ask. I'll provide you any samples you require, and I'll analyze my fitness for your job. I won't take on a job I don't think I'll be able to slam dunk or am otherwise not qualified to complete to our mutual satisfaction. Your killer copy is just a few clicks away! Contact me, and let's do it!  less

    Whether you're interested in a writer, a project manager, a transcriptionist, or even an editor, I have the skillset with the experience to support my claim. I'm very no-nonsense, and I deliver as quickly as I'm able to while maintaining the highest quality. As an editor and writer, I have had extensive experience through my work history as well as several university-level English writing and editing courses. These experiences have honed my proofreading and writing abilities; the topics that I could write most freely about are within business, events, food, health and fitness, philosophy, and reviews of almost anything (both opinionated and unbiased). Midway through a Bachelor of Science degree in Management and Systems Science, I have gained considerable marketing and project management experience through both my university as well as my volunteer work. As a business writer, project plans, marketing strategy plans, and managing teams of people are areas I am confident in. However, planning, budgeting, organizing, problem finding, and problem-solving are areas I excel in and could never grow tired of. Additionally, I pride myself in being an excellent transcriptionist with an average typing speed of 100 wpm (100% accuracy), a 12-24 hour TAT, and I also welcome any and all suggestions for formatting. I use Express Scribe for all of my transcriptions, and I can comfortably transcribe one hour of audio within three hours. As a side note: I have lived half of my life in Sweden and spent several years in Swedish-learning atmospheres up to university courses. As such, I'm fluent in both written and verbal Swedish, and I can translate both to Swedish from English, and vice versa.  less
