Writing for Websites
Your website is often the first online tool to reach your customers. In the crowded online environment, you only have a few seconds to hook the interest of the visitors. I create high quality web content that makes sure the visitor engages with your content, receives the correct information, and remains interested enough to contact you in-person. I also write effective emailers that make people take notice.
Writing for Print
Writing for print can take many different forms such as manuscripts, books, newsletters, brochures, leaflets, promotional material and more. However, its nature is different from writing for the web. The lengths, and factors like style and sourcing vary. I create content with the right style for print - unique, compelling, and informative.
Proofreading & Copy-editing
Whether you have written a report or any document, it can be difficult for you to spot your own errors. Ordinary spellcheck tools cannot always say if you meant ‘bat’ or ‘bad’ or ‘good food’ and not ‘food good’. As a skilled proofreader and copy-editor, I pay keen attention to spelling and punctuation errors, rid your document of difficult sentences or phrases, and create one that meets professional standards.
Ghostwriting means I transform your ideas into structured, reader-friendly, and engaging content. Maybe you want to devote your time to other things that require your hands-on attention, or you don’t like the process of writing itself. Share your ideas with me, and I can turn them into written content. I create email or letter templates for internal communication in your organization or business. I can analyse content created by your team and share suggestions to improve them.
Allied Services and Odd Works
I collaborate with experienced professionals to provide specialised allied services such as design for print, website design and development, translations, and voice-overs. Besides writing for web and print, I also undertake a range of other tasks such as transcribing audio content from meetings and interviews into accurate type written documents, doing online research, drafting contracts, fact-checking, or formatting a document.
English Language Education
I am an experienced English Language Trainer. I have conducted courses on General English (Starter to Advanced Level), and on Business Writing and Communication. I also work on developing lesson plans for English language training, or lesson plans in English for various subjects or simply creating practice sheets for learners. I hold a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages / Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TESOL / TEFL).
How I Work
01Understanding your needs and audienceI start by asking you questions on the kind of writing you want, and your target audience. Are you a B2B company or are you a B2C company or are you targeting a mix of both companies and individuals? Do you just want to share information and create a “calling card” website for anyone looking for details about your company? Or do you want content that is more interactive? Our discussion will help me better understand your requirements, and tailor my writing to suit your specific needs. I can also connect you with website design & development professionals to create a completely new look for your existing site with additional inputs on how to improve the old content.
02Research, writing, and editingOnce we have decided on your requirements, I spend my time on: research, writing, rewriting, fact-checking, proofreading and editing. I go through each of these steps carefully so that the copy you receive from me is accurate, well written, of professional standards, and meets your requirements.
03RevisionsBased on your feedback, I revise the work and resubmit, at no additional charge. I am happy to do revisions as long as they are just revisions and fall within the scope of the work to be done, which we will mutually agree on before I take on a project. This means that the overall topic, outline, and length of the content will stay the same.
04Final SubmissionI will send the final work to you, when we are 100% happy with what I have written, and you are sure that it meets your requirements. I, most commonly, send submissions via email, but some clients prefer that I submit the work via Google Drive or via a shared Dropbox folder. I am also happy to send the work by any other reasonable methods that you may suggest.
