I want to be…
Really awesome. Fitting in with your team just like another person at the office, ready to contribute from day one, contributing ideas that help your projects shine.
Supremely helpful. My goal is to score some serious wins for your organization with spectacular copywriting. That only works if you’re getting my best work. We’re a team–as a team, I need to understand your message and embody it in everything I do to make your project shine. Together, we need to be a winning combination of unstoppable marketing.
Personal and personable! If we’re working together, let’s get to know each other. Why do we need to know each other personally? A little bit of personality humanizes technology, and tech copywriting needs a little humanity. (Plus it’s more fun!)
It doesn’t have to be awkward. Here, I’ll start. I live in the Pacific Northwest, I’m really great at making homemade pizza, and I love EDM (electronic dance music). I love great coffee but am a fan of ALL coffee, so I don’t care if it’s a cold brew iced vanilla latte or a regular old brewed cup of joe.
Flexible. Every company has a different process, timeline and system. Different needs, ideas, customers and personalities. Copywriting shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. Whenever possible, I’ll strive for flexibility. I’ll ask about your needs and look for ways to make the project easier for you so you can focus on your own responsibilities.
I don’t want to be…
Unapproachable, unreliable, unprepared or condescending.
In my current business and past work lives, I’ve hired and worked with people who’ve fit each of those categories. It’s not fun, and we didn’t accomplish much. So I really don’t want to be any of those things in my work with clients.
