Here are some businesses and organizations I’ve written web copy for, with a small explanation for each. I’ve written copy for thousands of websites, across all industries, and I feel the following sites represent a nice cross-section of business types:
Please note – I only post web copy samples, because websites are very public. Letters / brochures / etc are more selective in distribution, and clients may wish to keep those private. However, these sites (plus my own site here) should give you a fine idea of my writing style.
Equipment Financing by Crest Capital. This is a seriously nice (and very large) website for one of the country’s top equipment financing / equipment leasing companies.
Strata Management Software by Power Strata. This is specific software used by specific businesses. And the website is beautiful, clear, and definitely gets to the point.
Restaurant Furniture by Soft Touch Furniture. Based in Ohio, these folks manufacture the finest restaurant furniture available. And they are great people as well.
I write a lot of those landing pages you see advertised on Weather.com, CNN.com, etc. You know, those “secret trick to getting low car insurance”. I make these companies a lot of money.
Corporate Event Planning and Destination Management. by e-Ventures Unlimited. Need a sultry Hawaiian-themed corporate retreat in Michigan? In December? How about a swanky award ceremony, complete with band? Call these guys.
Clearly Trained – Based in Kentucky, Clearly Trained is a perfect example of a small business using the internet to sell a GREAT “niche-type” product/service to the world. I love this site (oh, I also helped them come up with the name/URL.)
Shrewsbury Snow Plowing by New England Tree Experts. Greg, the company owner, tells me he’s converting at obscenely high levels after I rewrote this site.
Childcare in Stow, Ohio by Small Steps, Big Strides. Excellent childcare / daycare / preschool in Stow Ohio. They needed an engaging, trustworthy tone so parents would feel comfortable contacting them.
Springfield Funeral Home Quiet, reassuring website that projects competence and comfort during an obviously difficult time.
Canada Fly Fishing at Tsylos Lodge. Beautiful lodge accessible only by plane, and with no cell service – leave your phone and your cares at home, and come experience the Canadian wilderness.
Casino Game Development by Slot Constructor. Interesting casino-style games for regular casinos and gaming establishments.
New York City Homecare by Special Touch Home Care. This site has to convince someone that their loved one will be taken care of. It does the job well.
Virtual Phone Service by Hello Phoenix. Don’t let the company name fool you – these folks can get you setup with a kick-butt phone system anywhere in the USA.
Section 179 .org Section 179 is the provision of the US tax code for business equipment deductions. It seems to be a yawn-inducing subject, but here I think I did a really good job at clearly explaining the code in an engaging, Plain English fashion. Also, the web copy uses keywords very well (which was important to this client, as he had extensive SEO plans). To see for yourself, go to Google and type in “section 179”.
Small Business Web Design By William Carr. William and I work together all the time – he’s really got a handle on designing clean, converting websites for small businesses.
Home Staging by Decor Amore. This is two-woman team of exceptional home designers in Michigan. They have a really nice website, too (a well-written one at that! 🙂
Premier Marketing – High level marketing consulting company who creates and manages membership upgrade programs for corporate clients. Still, despite the high level clients, this site is very accessible in terms of language.
Meritrust Asset Recoveries This site needed an engaging, reassuring voice to explain to people that no, this is NOT a scam, and very real. It does a nice job of doing just that. Plus, Jennifer does a great service for her clients, and is a really nice person as well.
Tilo Martin Painting Exceptional, high-end house painter service Southern California.
Online Backup by Safetynet – a professional online backup service for businesses.
Academic Coaching by Whitecraft Learning Solutions. This is a husband and wife team that do academic coaching from their home.
Wireless Management by Intratem – Intratem is a company that manages other companies wireless accounts / expenditures. This is another good sized site with strong information (and another good example of page order / flow making sense.)
Arizona Realtor Sean Gaughan Sean Gaughan is a Scottsdale-area Realtor. From the left link bar, go to and read the different “buying your home” pages. I really don’t like hot weather much, but I almost want to live here after reading the descriptions of the different towns (and I wrote the darn things!)
Powerboat Lessons by Yachts 4 Fun. Because who doesn’t want to skim across the water really, really fast?
ICG Consulting – Again, a high level corporate consulting company (this time tech and back-end financial consulting) who didn’t want to sound like a stuffy corporation. For a good example of “Plain English” corporate language, click on the little “post it note” at the top right.
High Quality Candles by Angie’s Candle Shop – This is a niche, home-based retailer selling an excellent product (in this case, triple-scented candles). And yea, the candles really are wonderful – I know a bit about this, because I make my own wax tarts. Angie’s candles are first-rate.
Nearly Natural I write the product descriptions (hundreds of them) for this company.
Get A Pair!!! This is a site with attitude. And it’s a GREAT idea. Just go there and see for yourself…
