Freelance Writer for Hire

Let me write quality content for your website.

Freelance Writer and Editor

When you need a reputable freelance writer with a proven record of accomplishment to produce top-quality articles for your blog or articles for your website that can boost traffic to your site and secure more customers, you are in the right place. It’s like they say, “The proof is in the pudding.”

Check my portfolio: and you will see the proof that I have the talent and knowledge to write on various topics and infuse it with SEO, naturally.

I am a certified US English Manual of Chicago Style Editor. I do not work by the hour. Your time is valuable and so is mine, so I work on a flat rate basis. I normally charge $1.00 per page to edit novels, novellas, and e-Books. This includes:

Check the spelling and grammar, proper word usage, and punctuation. In addition, I’ll check for style and voice consistency, tense agreement, syntax, good flow, and clarity, if needed; advise on format and organization; use MS Word’s Track Changes tool. In summary, iron out any creases that may remain in your book so that it will be error free and ready for publication. When I say ready for publication that means I will do as many rewrites as is necessary, so that your book is exactly as you want it.

Freelance Writer for Hire: My Rates

I charge $.04 per word for blog posts, news related articles, and SEO content, which works out to $20.00 for a 500-word article. That’s a lot less than what a majority of freelance writers are charging. Online magazines are paying $50-$100 per article and some as much as $1000.

I will write well researched, SEO infused articles for your website that makes use of keyword phrases and Meta Description tags that will bring the RIGHT customers to your web pages.

SEO is not just stacking an article full of keywords, but using the right keywords, in the right place, that brings the right customers to your website. Additionally, in order to satisfy Google’s Hummingbird algorithm, I use synonyms of the key word and focus words within the surrounding text to ensure credit for your Page with the right information to rank on the appropriate search engine results page (SERP).

Freelance writers often neglect using Meta Description tags in their copy, which to me is a huge mistake. I use proper Meta Description tags, which is a 150-character blurb that tells a potential customer what they will find on your site. A Meta Description tag is like a movie trailer in tweet form. This is the first item a potential customer will read on the SERP, which will bring the right customers to your website, who are ready to buy your product or hire you to perform a service.

The facts speak for themselves, 3.5 billion people conduct a search on Google every day and 90 percent never scroll past the first five results on a SERP. Your Website’s landing page needs to be one of those first five. Additionally, there needs to be a definitive call to action for potential customers to answer within seconds of reaching your page.

Well-written product descriptions and quality, SEO friendly content is your best bet for a significant return on investment. Check my portfolio and I think you will agree that I have the talent and ability to provide you with quality content for whatever purpose you need to fill.

I also offer a discount of 40 percent for students and Veterans.

I am a Retired US Army First Sergeant, so I have a lot of time to devote to your project.
