He has worked with several SEO firms in the past and has even been called in for a consult on a popular writer's forum and content broker's website to create marketing content (including email marketing content) for the company.

Fitness

100 Projects Completed

David's knowledge of barbell training, diet, and general health (as well as disease) have helped him craft unique and interesting fitness articles that are anything but ordinary. For example, did you know that the low-bar squat mechanics and geometry make it the only exercise in existence capable of training a unique phenomenon called "hip drive" (and the hips are used to generate force in just about any physical activity you can do)?

David's blog posts and articles are backed up with research by well-known and respected olympic and powerlifting coaches as well as research available through PubMed and in scientific journals.

Banking

100 Projects Completed

David's work in the banking industry includes mortgage brokers and financial firms that need both ad copy and relevant content for blogs and other content platforms. Content includes information as basic as checking and savings account features and as complex as international banking. In most cases, the legal aspect of banking is not discussed, since David is not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice or interpretation of regulations in the banking industry.

Self Help

50 Projects Completed

David's work in the self-help niche includes articles on yo-yo dieting, improving self-esteem through introspection, and introductory articles on cognitive behavioral psychology. David also writes about the psychology of personal and business financial planning, how psychology affects financial spending decisions, and how stress impacts personal health and quality of life.

Email Copy

31 Projects Completed

Part of David's portfolio includes copywriting for a popular writer's forum. This project was a multi-stage endeavor, consisting of many smaller projects. David crafted the email headline, introductory emails, and calls to action. These emails were then sent out to clients for the forum to help bring in more business for the company. Within the first week, the email campaign was up and generating results for the forum.
