Ebook Writing Sample
Oberlo is an awesome brand I’ve worked with closely in the past.
(I received in-depth video training from Oberlo to improve my long-form content writing skills and advance my SEO knowledge further.)
Website Copywriting Samples
Vlynt is an amazing SAAS website. I wrote this copy when they were a startup with another name.
Bespark is a Shopify Plus dev agency. I’ve used Shopify for ecommerce before. So I appreciate excellent customized functionality when I see it. And that’s what Bespark is all about.
Mindstamp is a powerful video annotation tool that lets you embed comments directly into video. (Sweet.) For this project, I worked on some of the copy and acted as a marketing/copy consultant.
DJ Paul Michaels is the best wedding DJ in Chicagoland. Check out his blog for fun event details.
FB Swipes is my most recent side project. I aim to publish daily analyses by exploring the creative side of Facebook advertising.
Sample articles on journal publication
Selected articles I wrote as marketing director for TopEdit.tw:
Coauthored article with Russian political researcher Yilmaz Seraffatin. The article on Asian cybersecurity was published in a special issue of Strategic Vision vol. 2.(Special Issue, December 2013; pp. 11 to 15).
I was featured in this Wallace Newsletter (Sept. 2011 issue, in traditional Chinese) as the new Editor-in-Chief. I had just gotten serious about my copy editing and editing practice. This introductory article launched my career in Taiwan’s science research scene.
For more than a decade, I’ve helped hundreds of research teams get their articles published in the most prestigious science journals worldwide. (Published samples here.) These researchers include behavioral psychologists, scientists, and engineers.
Landing Page Samples
Real-Life Fitness PT
Real-Life Fitness PT hired me to write this set of landing pages (2 long-form variants + 1 short-form variant). The first image is the short-form sample.
The first image link is for Long-Form Variant 1 (charity pull, which I recommended against).
The second link is for Long-Form Variant 2 (lead magnet pull).
The company wanted to run an ad campaign. I was brought on to beat their controls. They never ended up running the a/b tests.
A few weeks later I was hired to write their Instagram ads. (I include one here. I’m not terribly fond of these.)
This is a landing page I wrote 2 years ago. It’s in British English. The ad never ran, which is a shame. I still like it, which is why I’ve included it in my copywriting portfolio.
This is a landing page sample I wrote as an exercise. It was for a course by legendary copywriter John Carlton. It’s in the style of an advertorial.
I had big plans. Product testing. Was aiming to import an air purifier model with a small MOQ of 100 orders. But something-something crazy import taxes. (Still looking to establish an LLC here in Bangkok.)
Lead Magnet Samples
Ebook Lead Magnet Sample for Mister Pajamas
This is the Mister Pajamas lead magnet. I originally conceived it as a quick list of 11 Freelance Copywriting tips for success.
But I didn’t want to write fluff to pull people’s emails. So I extended it to provide actual value. It’s by no means perfect, but here it is, in final form. (Actually free. No email address required.)
Infographic Samples for TopEdit.tw
I wrote this set of infographics for TopEdit.tw, the Taiwanese research editing company. (I was employed in-office as the marketing director.) (Traditional Chinese translations are available upon request.)
Creative Copywriting Samples (Big-brand copy samples)
This ad campaign was for a Chupa Chups spec. I’ve been working with junior brand designer Irada Pankor @ Irada Designs for 1 year now. This was one of our starter projects to explore how our styles meshed.
Chupa Chups ads are immediately identifiable. That’s good branding. So our challenge was to come up with something original and wholesome. All while avoiding easy and cliche’ sexual innuendos, and preserving this sucker’s brand identity.
The concept involved presenting images of traditional celebratory events, overshadowed by the sucker (the greater need).
How’d we do?
The Honey Box project was an ad packaging and branding sample (spec). But that’s not what made this one uniquely awesome.
This was another collab project with junior brand designer Irada Pankor @ Irada Designs. We chose to create this brand from scratch as a branding exercise. Irada was the lead on this one.
From concept to brand attributes, we wanted to create an environmentally conscious honey brand. Something original and cool.
This meant the design had to be clean. It had to feature strong contrasting colors. The copy had to complement these brand qualities. A friendly tone to deliver an eco-friendly message that hit an emotional chord with our target audience.
Honey lovers who care about bees.
