Web Content Writing

I hired Alyice to do web copy for four of my businesses...And, I must say she did an EXCELLENT JOB. Not only is she professional and efficient but she is also a GREAT writer. Her descriptions and meta tags are outstanding and have caused my search engine rankings to increase. She wrote my content as if she created the products herself. Alyice goes above and beyond what she is compensated for. She was constantly tweaking my pages, and giving me suggestions about how to get my pages ranked high. She even took the time to explain what certain terms meant―associated with search engine optimization―and also pointed me in the right direction to learn more about the process. While I know she is a busy lady, she remained courteous and professional―at all times. She made me feel like I was her number one priority. Thank you for your hard work and quick turnaround. You have made my website's content worthwhile to read!
-- Villaseñor, Owner of Flutters of the Heart®

2003 Update from Villaseñor...I was getting sales here and there, but after you did my tags and web copy and told me what to focus on and I singled out the products that work for me, my site has been steadily increasing in sales!...All because I listened to what you had to say and applied it to my business. In three months, I went from 500 unique visitors to 2,300 unique visitors and it just keeps increasing. Thanks!

2004 Update from Villaseñor...I still have not done much advertising and my sales have tripled! My unique visitors has increased to 16,497 per month!

2005 Update from Villaseñor...I still have not done any advertising or targeted repeat customers and my sales have continued to go up. My unique visitors has increased to 22,784 per month. And, I've earned over $45,000 in pure profit in 2005!

2006 Update from Villaseñor...I know you won't believe this, but I still have not done any advertising and my sales are holding strong. My unique visitors are now at 26,608 per month, and that's with moving over half my content to an entirely new website! With this kind of success, I know I'm now ready to start advertising and targeting repeat customers.
Your copywriting is so good it's making people nervous. I had one gal write me and ask if she could pay this month and take the class later -- she had many responsibilities with her children this month, but wanted to "hurry" as the copy encouraged to lock in at the $75 price that "wouldn't last." I had to chuckle.
-- Barbara Carr Phillips, Journal Workshop Instructor, 2005
Alyice it's wonderful!!! I love it!… we both thought it was excellent! I am so pleased and happy with your copy, you did a great job! I will keep working on your suggestions also...Thanks so much Alyice.
Re: new index page copy for new website on loans
-- Connie Barker, Owner Financial Website, 2004
We are both thrilled with the copy! You have us convinced that you own a motorcycle!
Re: new index page copy for website about motorcycle parts, etc.
