Prolific copywriter Susan Rich seeks projects with OMG Agency
Are you looking for a writer who can write a 500-word polished article in 1 hour?
My name is Susan Rich, and that is exactly what I deliver: Quality content, expertly written, fact-checked, and copyedited, in the time it takes one episode of Law & Order to air on TV.
For the last five years, my articles and ghost blogs on health and fitness, home improvement, and real estate have been published in Northwest markets. I have a journalism degree and 20+ years experience in print, PR, and marketing. I’ve published more than 2,000 articles, that’s about 1 million words in print – and I’m still counting.
I saw Job No. 3477 posted on Craigslist: You said you were looking for a copywriter who could make your team “sit up and take notice.”
Consider this: In addition to stellar copywriting, I excel at high concept idea development. Over a plate of Pad Thai I once created a content theme and new tagline for an international communications group. I’ve also consulted with dozens of entrepreneurs – helping them solve immediate marketing challenges that were stalling their business growth.
Or this: One of my key strengths is working live with clients – I’ve been known to develop a full-blown product under a client’s watchful eye. For example: After a large manufacturing company lost a multi-million-dollar bid, they hired me to write a letter of protest. I guided seven angry executives through a 10-hour meeting where we identified key points that would improve their position. I drafted, then finalized, the letter on the spot. The same company hired me for other writing projects.
I would like to work for the OMG Agency: I believe my proven track record in delivering quality content under pressure, coupled with my ability to develop and launch concepts from start to finish, make me an excellent candidate for your team.
I look forward to discussing my first assignment soon.
