Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

Products reviews, payday loans articles, and blogs. Conversational style is one of the most popular styles of writing for all types of industries, including those that were traditionally "stiffer", such as legal and medical topics. Conversational style helps the reader to relax and identify with the content, which leads to engagement and reader loyalty.

Promotional

Promotional articles for a balloon & party rental company where much creativity was involved so the content would sound fresh and updated and not repetitive. Taking the time to outline ideas and then fleshing out the benefits and advantages of a product or service goes a long way to transmitting information in an interesting and informative way, without sounding too "sales-y".
