Melinda Urick 

I am a freelance copywriter currently residing in Pittsburgh, PA (originally from Cleveland, so I can handle all those jokes). Writing for the Web is my specialty, and my services include: blogging, website content, e-newsletters, social media and community management, brand engagement, e-commerce and likewise online marketing activities. My educational background is in journalism, marketing, promotional communications and public relations (yes, all that in one degree program!) -- even that little bit of pysch helps surprisingly well in copywriting. What that means for you: words with personality. Your content needs an upbeat, conversational tone. My writing sells as much as it informs. By creating engaging and concise content, I target your intended audience and effectively prompt reader action. I am experienced. I meet deadlines. That's the least of what you should expect in a copywriter. I work with your project, team, audience and budget in mind. And, most importantly, I always respect your brand.
