I am for freelance for ad agencies and for direct clients. Can do everything you'd expect, from national press campaigns to sales letters. (including direct mail) I'm available short term, long term, on site or out of sight. And I'm prepared to travel. I've worked on several websites. My passion with writing made me write for a website with new funda for getting a job in Middle East. This passion only made me write for another first of its kind website in asia.
I am not writing novels or poems. Just articles, newsletters, regular letters, reports... communications with your customers that convey ideas and information & promotes purchase. I don’t even care a hoot about punctuation, queen's english or other “rules” of proper writing (Hinglish or hindustani or Chatroom Lingua or SMS lingua cuts better ice with the audience)
What you in the direct marketing business want is clean, simple, direct writing... almost like talking to someone in his languge. This is the way I give real value to our customers. By writing in a way that makes it easy for them to get at the ideas and information they want.
I can create interesting corporate identity packages and advertisements that add ample equity to the client's brands. It' is my job to understand the clients' needs and tailor the copy in such a way that it promotes the sale of the product or service. Depending on the medium, I have to write a compelling press ad for publication, a dialogue or jingle for a radio spot, content for a website or a detailed storyboard for a TV commercial. While the finished product may look simple, a great deal of brain-wracking effort goes into turning out that single catchy phrase that will set the Ganges on fire. Besides oodles of versatility and a way with words, I have the ability to chisel and craft my 'copy' into a subtly compelling sales pitch.
I might be writing copy for a new brand of lipstick in the morning, a TV spot for a tourist destination in the afternoon, and thinking up a snappy brand name for a new fast food joint in the evening! That you must be well read and clued into what's happening around you goes without saying. Like a good copywriter, I am able to think Laterally and Originally each time, to co-relate masses of data and research findings in order to present the conclusions in message that is lucid and convincing.
