Efrain aggressively attains and retains online clients by helping them find new traffic for their business, blog, website or more by writing and editing lucent, eloquent copy that creates value and serves a "niche" in its best capacity. As seen in his job history below, he has respectively created value for dozens of clients thus far by writing on the following topics, and countless others, with lengths from 100 to 25,000 words & more - depending on the need, the style guide required, and the client's instructions. And you can count on him for same-day, urgent deadlines!

Additionally, he has written more than 17,000 pieces long and short, all of which have been approved for and paid for on other sites. He has properly sold the rights to each respective client and has not published them under his name. Thorough copywriting and flawless copyediting are Efrain's specialties - as is translation from English to Spanish or vice versa.

Efrain obtained his BA in Communication with a minor in Mass Media studies. He got this degree in 2012 and has worked for clients online since then. Plus, he's 100% fluent in English and Spanish. Clients: This can help you in multiple ways. For example, Efrain could translate an English website into Spanish so it will potentially reach a wider audience (Spanish-reading people). Let him know how he can best help you in this; every content need is different.

=====================================================================================================

Efrain primarily writes/edits business content in AP style. But he can also write academic content in APA, MLA, CHICAGO, HARVARD & TURABIAN styles and can research well to provide solid content. But most important of all, he'll work to help YOU succeed! Efrain has successfully completed Individual/Group/Direct Order Assignments, for other writing sites, in the following formats:

• Blogs for Personal and Business Use
• Business/Leader Profiles
• Business/Product/Location/City Reviews
• eBooks
• Essays
• Informatives or Informational Topics
• News Article Recaps
• Press Releases
• Product descriptions
• Recent/Upcoming Event Coverage or Summaries
• Resume Writing
• Topic generation & future article-headline pitches
• Travel: Hotels, airlines, city guides, more…
• Website Copy ("About Us Page", "Backlink Copy", more....)
• White Papers

=====================================================================================================

Efrain has written well on the following subject matters:

-Accounting
-Automation
-B2B/B2C
-Cryptocurrencies
-Fintech

-Internet Trends Through Google Keyword Analysis/SEO
-IT
-IoT
-Lifestyle
-Relationships
-Sanitation and Public Health Awareness
-Spirituality/Religion
-Sports
-Travel

=====================================================================================================

But furthermore, here is how this particular professional approaches his content as well, the primal checklist he abides by, which has never failed. These are but a few of the content structure elements he'll double-, triple-, and even quadruple-check for:

***Client messages obeyed/Each point of client briefing has been followed!
-Active voice
-Spelling, grammar, sentence structure
-Word count
-Word count AGAIN! (Double-checking for Quality Analysis)
-No spacing issues/outline of text layout is OK.
-REREADING EVERYTHING AFTER ALL THIS IS CHECKED. HEARING HOW IT READS OUT LOUD?
-NO FLUFF!!!!
-USING 3-4 HIGHLY RARE, RICH VOCAB. WORDS IN EACH PIECE!
-READING AGAIN FOR FLUFF!!!!
-Checking final content against a Google search, for originality, just in case.
-CHECKING AGAIN TO SEE HOW HE CAN BACKUP ALL CLAIMS JUST MADE WITH FACTS & STATS! DOING THIS 2-3 TIMES! (ENSURING CONTENT IS MORE SPECIFIC, IN-DEPTH AND NOT JUST GENERIC OR BROAD. RE-READING TWICE FOR THIS. THAT’S WHERE THE STATS AND OTHER INFO. HELP.)
-Not using either too many or too few of these: --- : ; — , & and % ! (or having the same words used more than twice in the entire content piece either).
-Having a balance between bold/underlined/italicized/enlarged/ALL CAPS words, bold points and numerals, colored words, highlighted text, etc.
-CHECKING FOR FLUFF A THIRD TIME!
-Ensuring photos/text size are proportionate.
-Replacing good words with better words, and then replacing better words with the best words there are! (If unsure, looking up synonyms/antonyms for the words one seeks to use/voice one hopes to convey.)
-And speaking of message, knowing what VOICE the writer's is intended to carry: 1st person? (me, I, my mine…) 2nd person? (you, your, yours, you’ll…) Or even 3rd? (he, she, it, they, them...narrator voice)

Interests

Efrain occasionally enjoys throwing his laptop down (but not too hard) on the ground and going outside for a moonlight walk, to get some "reflection time", the moment where great writing ideas tend to happen. He also loves to learn all about new cultures, languages and socio-ethnic groups, covering them in his many blogs. He greatly enjoys meeting new people often and you may find him engaging in hiking, biking, or even swimming with any new groups of friends at his local rec center or within the beautiful Rocky Mountains; there's nothing out there this true content warrior's not willing to try!

Product Description

323 Projects Completed

Whatever product or lineup Efrain is writing about, he knows it all begins with the proper research and having that "hook" that will draw the readers in for more. What is that?
Well, there needs to be a sense of shock and "awe" as media are deluged with reading the latest product descriptions and alerts on new products every day. It’s important to ensure that there is a mix of ‘what’s the main selling point’ along with a catchiness that gets the reader to go beyond the headline, sub-heading and first paragraph. In the Twitter sound-bite world we live in, the words used need to give the reader pause to catch up to the overall thoughts that are being conveyed, and Efrain no less targets each area well.
