Freelance Copywriting Experience
Projects for Spring/Summer 2014 included B2C websites on custom closets, custom furniture & upholstery and web hosting & design.
I’ve also recently completed a 10,000+ word Student Action Guide on sustainability (includes expert interviews) and a comprehensive STEM guide for kids.
In Winter 2014, I added to the 2013 website on data science, with blog posts, specialty sections and five 2,000 word articles on how big data is affecting various industries (e.g. energy sector).
In March of 2013, I began writing emails and landing pages (ongoing basis) for a company specializing in lead management and demand generation.
During January-February, I completed fifty-two 400-word state profiles covering the marketing industry for a lead generation company, including profiles on D.C. and Puerto Rico. In April, I drafted two overview articles on online marketing & accounting programs.
In October, I dusted off a 30,000 word website on data science.
Other projects included SEO recommendations for a North Shore law firm and a Newburyport life coach, a B2B brochure for a health food company and PR work for eartheaded.com.
Audio Tour Writing
I also completed name branding for an Artificial Intelligence start-up and editorial work for eartheaded.com.
Throughout this time I provided Rising Media with press releases on online marketing & analytics conferences and tackled a series of articles on the topic of higher education & criminal justice for a lead generation company.
Catalog Copy Editing
In April of 2011, I began working on contract projects with George P. Johnson, a global event management agency. Their key focus is engagement – finding ways to inspire action and loyalty among event attendees. To date, I have provided SEO copywriting and website strategy, emails and case studies.
In the latter part of 2011 and in January 2012, I worked as a contract copywriter with PetEdge, a wholesale pet supply company in Beverly, MA. Work include extensive copy editing, as well as product copy, advertising copy and PR initiatives.
Social Media Campaigns
Internet Marketing Strategy
In 2010, I spent eight months writing for McDougall Interactive, an award-winning internet marketing firm offering search engine optimization (SEO), content development, PPC, analytics, link building and social media.
Work included SEO copywriting and editing for eCommerce sites, banks, law firms, golf resorts, restaurants, B2B manufacturers and colleges. I was also involved in a number of social media campaigns and collaborations on internet marketing strategy.
During these years, I worked closely with Catalog Design Studios, writing catalog copy and headlines for wildlife control suppliers, food companies and New England craftspeople.
In partnership with Stackpole & Partners, I tackled web and print projects, including white papers, ads, websites and print collateral for non-profits, automotive leasing companies, banks and law firms.
Trade Show Displays
I experienced hands-on training in every stage of the marketing process as a marketing coordinator with WIDE World at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Work included:
- Writing the monthly newsletter, marketing collateral and articles for educational publications
- Helping draft email and print campaigns and tracking their effectiveness
- Collaborating with other departments on the new website and trade show display
In my previous work as a regular book reviewer for the California Literary Review, I have also written essays and conducted interviews.
