Portfolio

Product Description Writer for Ella's Wool

Ella's wool hired me to re-write their product descriptions. I tackled this by carefully researching keywords that their target audience would search the most. Then, I wove those keywords into fun product descriptions.

'About Us' page Copy for SBS Steel

SBS suffered from a classic case of bad business copy – writing that's boring, factual and a chore to read because whoever wrote it was scared that by getting personal, the company would look unprofessional. I changed this by writing copy that emotionally engaged the reader.

'About us' page for Utopia Gear

My client loves what he does, but his passion wasn't showing through his website copy. First of all, my client and I had a consultation. Then, I had him do some homework - he filled out a customized questionnaire designed to get under the skin of Utopia Gear and its customers.

Ideal team

My clients are usually creative types who are smart enough to know that just a pretty website won’t get you sales. They own a small business, and they’re passionate about what they do. They want a copywriter who can get behind what they do.
