Available for copywriting

By  
September 20th, 2011

Six months ago I took on some casual part-time technical authoring jobs in order to help fund home improvements. In 2011 so far, the accidentally formed, hastily grown young copywriting company grown and grown, purchasing more Apple technology than Stephen Fry. (Well, almost). It has been an insane six months. The ambition I had of hitting the Top Ten freelancers on People Per Hour became a reality twice, in July and August, and we won the Top Jobs award on People Per Hour too.

Three very large copywriting projects have ended this week, and as such, our schedule is opening up. We are still getting lots of enquiries about SEO copywriting […]

Red Robot wins two more awards on People Per Hour

By  
September 1st, 2011

This morning we awoke to find Red Robot had won two awards on People Per Hour! I had been monitoring the Top Ten Freelancers board hoping we would win a prize, but we also won a second award which we weren’t expecting.

First off, we again came 7th in the Top Ten Freelancers list for August, having hit the number eight spot in July. In both months I was the highest ranked copywriter and/or technical author out of 146,000 freelancers working through the site. I would post the rosette, but the site only seems to allow me to generate one for July which is a shame. Nonetheless, you can see the award on the Top Ten Freelancers for August page, and on my People Per Hour profile page. The August […]

This week’s work

By  
August 19th, 2011

The week’s coming to a close, and I am working hard to try finalise a project for the weekend: if I do, I get tomorrow off! A day off is a rare occurrence for me, but will hopefully become more normal from Monday when Red Robot becomes a full time copywriting and technical authoring company.

This week I have worked on a massively varied range of copywriting projects, from SEO finance and health article writing to fun pieces about dogs and puppies. Today I’m concentrating on web content and reviewing yesterday’s screencasts and training videos. I’m currently trying out a new screencast product called BB Flashback which is really enjoyable to use.

From Monday Mathew and I will be picking up the pace with existing projects. Although my calendar is booked up for two months, I’m hoping to be able to pull all my deadlines right […]

Open full time from August 22nd!

By  
August 17th, 2011

If you’re already a client, you probably received one of our lovely Moo cards this week; we wanted to spread the word and let everyone know that we’re open full-time from Monday for SEO copywriting and technical authoring assignments. Here they are if you missed out!

So far in 2011 we’ve come on in leaps and bounds as a company. I have already reduced my hours at my ‘normal’ job to take on more writing assignments. The time finally came to leave, though, and today is my last day.

I’ve really enjoyed working there – I started in April 2009 and I was elated. It was the job I had always wanted!  I’ve been very fortunate to work with a lovely bunch of people, and it’s a real shame to leave that behind. However, it seemed […]
