Summary of Experience
A web designer by trade, this freelancer is transitioning to a writing career because of a love for the craft. In addition to delivering well-written material in a timely manner, a background in web marketing and SEO best practices means a deeper understanding of the requirements to create effective content.

This writer has a 100% acceptance rate for all assignments, and that does not happen without the natural ability to produce high quality work catered to the needs of clients. Excellent research skills and the use of reputable sources will let businesses rest easy knowing that the material they release online is factually accurate.

As a professional writer, David has been paid for all assignments and has received excellent client ratings and editorial feedback.

Search engine algorithms are improving, and well-written, relevant content is no longer just an option. The old methods of keyword stuffing and using non-professionals for content are ending.

Hire someone that understands how search engines and web marketing works. A few correctly written pieces will have more impact than dozens of meaningless articles that focus only on SEO. Google wants writers to write for consumers, not for Google.
Specialties
Researching and learning about new subjects is part of the fun of this job. From previous experience though, this writer has discovered a particular knack for articles on home improvement, plumbing, web marketing, website creation, politics and government.

Web Development

Projects by SEO Skill
SEO Keyword Requirements

As a web designer and content writer have extensively used keywords in text and as meta data. Part of my duties as a web designer was to sometimes research the best keywords to use and track their status, then tweak accordingly.

Title/Meta Descriptions

Sometimes responsible for research and finding the best possible title for content. Some clients also required some meta tags included with submission. As a web designer this was a standard part of my duties.

Link Building

Worked with a few WordPress clients to increase their SEO and inbound marketing through link building.

Projects by Asset Type
Copywriting

Have written 160 articles to date for online publications. Many of these were copywriting assignments in the sense of full length articles that also serve as advertising copy. Have also written around five or six conventional ads.

Blog Post

90 is just an estimate, of the 160 paid content writing assignment completed to date many were blog posts. Clients don't always share this information or inform writers where the content will be used. A lot of clients require ghostwriters and prefer as much anonymity as possible, which I respect.

News Story

One of the writer's clients ran a news website and requested only current new stories. Eight news stories is an estimate, but that number is very close.

Technical Article

Writer created two WordPress tutorials for current and future clients that were not familiar with the Content Management System. Wrote another tutorial for a specific Photoshop project.

Web Page

200 web pages is also just an estimate. Writer has created, or collaborated, on approximately 30 websites at an average of five pages each. Some were just updates and partial re-designs, but most were built from scratch including meta tags, coding, wire frames, design and graphics.

Projects by Writing Style
Authoritative

Some home improvement articles included instructions for an authoritative voice because of the "how to" nature of these assignments. Most home improvement clients prefer a conversational voice.

Conversational

Though 75 is just an approximation, many clients request a conversational voice for their articles. This is the most common of voice the writer has used.

Humorous

A few clients leave style and tone up to the author's discretion as long as the proper keywords are included. I took advantage of this open ended creativity to craft humorous articles when the subject matter was appropriate for such a tone.

Journalistic

Did repeat work for a client that ran a news website and all assignments had to sourced and written in a journalistic manner.

Promotional

20 is just an estimate but a percentage of completed content writing assignments would be considered promotional.
