Writing for a general corporate or professional audience is a lot different from creative writing, but it requires just as much creativity. If you're having a hard time "getting thoughts on paper" or would like a hand with reviewing announcements, correspondence, documents, marketing material, Web copy, etc. I can help.
Process and Project Management
I identify and map out processes to help teams with seeing gaps or impediments which hinder efficiency or even stop workflow. Then, I work with you to streamline the processes or develop new ones to get the team(s) back on track.
I Identify and define the needs and scope of work, project set-up and timetable, building team(s), managing from launch to completion (or to agreed upon milestone), setting up and managing budget, reporting.
In addition, I have managed Front-end Web design internally for clients, being the bridge between the client and the design team/vendor. This has included creating Requirements documents and SOWs, wireframes, and usability testing documents. Note: I know HTML and CSS, but I am not programmer.
Recruiting and Training
I can help with sourcing, search, and recruiting, plus I'll train personnel if necessary.
In addition, I've helped with creating copy for recruiting, and I've written training manuals. Moreover, I've developed intern programs, and I've written the recruiting brochures/e-mails and the intern program applications and assessment docs.
Virtual Assistant/Personal Assistant/Business Manager
A virtual assistant (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant) provides professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients remotely from a home office. Can also provide administrative support or act as a business manager to help individuals with their daily personal business, company, project tasks. When someone is strapped for time or in need of an extra hand, I can step in.
Especially helpful for professors, researchers, scientists on sabbatical who need someone for short terms (from 1 month to 1 year +/-).
A few services provided:
Writing Correspondence, Answering Correspondence
Editing and Proofing
Social Media Management
Need someone to wade through and publish your daily social media communications because you have no time? I can help. I can write and post original updates, repurpose communications, retweet, and and provide you with the statistics you need to determine which platforms and communications are most effective.
If you have a tight budget, don't worry. I have services tiered so that you can get the level of service you need either to get you started or to move on to a higher level of engagement. Let's talk and see what fits.
