Well I have found one right here! Super Service. Exceptional Quality.—Just an absolute pleasure. Quick to respond to messages, quick to get great job done, made me feel like nothing was any bother and was happy to make changes. Will definitely hire again without hesitation. —Very fast and efficient. Made a number of changes I wouldn't have spotted myself and some fantastic recommendations. If you need your document proofed in UK/IRL English, this is your man. —He went beyond what I had expected. He has a strong ability to intuitively understand what is an appropriate style and use of language and then sets about bringing it to being. An extremely honest, dedicated and reliable gentleman. —Excellent contractor: fast, responsive, scrupulous and creative. —Whatever he asks for your project, it is not enough. He is selling his skills far under value. But even if he'd ask 10 USD per word, it'd still be worth it. He is like the best copywriter ever. He takes you on a journey through a product description that you cannot help your self but you want to buy the product. And so will your customers. We didn't make it easy for him, we didn't have any text about the product. I just explained it to him. And then he just let the magic happen. He can write as if he is breathing your product. AMAZING! +Great Communications+Great Creativity+Great Working Ethics+Great Price+Great him as long as you can. Because I want him full time eventually :)
