Copywriter Specializing in Entreprenuerial Client Base
I very recently started a technology consultancy located in Houston, TX USA and I am looking for a copy writer to help with several projects within my business.
I have some ideas but want to work with a professional/freelancer to hone them down into well written pieces. My two largest projects will be sales copy on the website and a brochure.
My target market is small business owners (and potential small business owners) who are looking for advice on how to best setup and use technology in their business to drive productivity and sales. Thus, potential candidates for this job should have experience writing to the entrepreneurial crowd and be well acquainted with their desires, worries, likes, and attitudes.
I am open to working with someone in most any location, but as my clients are located in the USA your experience must also be with companies located here. Additionally, and it almost goes without saying, strong American English skills are also a necessity.
Additionally, the budget I set is somewhat ambiguous because I do have multiple projects to work on. You should also know that I am already working with a corporate image creative so your words will be placed on a professional designed canvas!
