Business writing

I’ve written for companies big and small, in industries including retail, restaurant, franchise, financial services, insurance, and legal. How does that make your life better? It means I’m a seasoned, utility player who gets up to speed fast and delivers what you need on deadline.

You know how some copywriters will only give you two rewrites? My policy is I write until you’re ecstatic. Which usually takes me one draft, but I’m committed to the project until you’re happy.

I cut through thickets of industry jargon and explain complex concepts in simple, compelling language customers understand. I capture the tone and style needed to best convey your message. In other words, I make it sound like you.

Joy Cordell“Carol has a tremendous ability to comprehend complicated issues and distill them into clear English. As well, I appreciate her dependability and conscientious attention to schedules. I’ll look forward to every opportunity to work with Carol in the future”–Joy Cordell, (Milliman)
Michelle Rafter“Carol wrote feature stories for Inside Edge, American Express’ corporate finance website for mid-sized companies, for approximately nine months. Her ideas for stories were innovative and on target for the website’s audience. Her work was well-reported, well structured and routinely featured interesting leads. I would highly recommend Carol as a business reporter and would definitely use her again.”–Michelle Rafter

Bridget Quigg“Carol’s writing is playful, informative and journalistically sound. She manages to be very thorough while also getting her work done quickly thanks to her years of experience. Carol is easy to work with because she communicates well about deadlines and topic matter, she turns in her articles on time, and she understands salary and job topics thanks to her many years spent writing about business. I highly recommend Carol.”–Bridget Quigg (PayScale)
