Spruce Up Your Simbi Copywriting!

25 value - Virtual OK

Do you find it hard to get that elusive 100% on the Service Strength bar? Do you want your Simbi services and requests to sound competent and professional but don't have the time or energy to fuss with all the right punctuation?

An eye-catching title and image might get people to take the initial look, but it's the description and qualification boxes where you really sell yourself. If I have to choose a Simbi service with a vague and/or poorly written descriptions or one with a detailed, polished description unique to that person...well, you can guess which one I'd choose! You're a competent, knowledgeable person, and the copywriting on your Simbi service should reflect that!

This offer is good for ONE Simbi Service Spruce-Up. We'll chat a little via Simbi about what you're offering and why you're good at it, and I'll sit down and write an 800-character description of the service in question and a 200-character description of your qualifications. Those thresholds can seem a little excessive, especially for simple trades, but believe me, they can be reached. ;)

I will work on the text with you until you're happy, at which point you can copy and paste everything into SImbi. I will NOT be going in to your account and editing or creating services on your behalf. I'll simply supply the text and it will be up to you to copy and paste it into boxes. Likewise it's up to you to supply the title (though I might make suggestions) as well as the image. I also can't guarantee more likes or more deals, of course -- but hey, a little makeover couldn't hurt, right? ;)

Training & Qualifications


I have a BA in English (Creative Writing) and spent five years as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader (and very occasional content writer). Simbians and real life customers have complimented me on my attention to detail and my ability to help them say exactly what they meant while still retaining their unique voice.

Availability & Preferences


Weeknights and weekends GMT +1

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

About Katherine Koba

Everything I enjoy comes down to words, details, and helping and educating others. In my work life, I'm a professional Swedish -> English translator. I work with corporate documents: everything fr...om annual and interim reports to internal memos to press releases. I was a freelance copyeditor and ESL tutor before that. Before that I spent two years teaching English at cram schools in South Korea, and before THAT I was a cave tour guide. In my fun life, I co-organize a local writing Meetup, translate semi-obscure Swedish women writers into English, and read a lot. I also work on my own writing projects, which tend to be character-driven SF/F and literary novels. I'm a bit of a language nerd, too; I study Russian and Korean in my spare time, and try to keep up my high school German and college French. I also like to surprise people with postcards and tea and other fun things in the mail!show more
