2017 writing recap

by Barbie in Company News, Web Writing

The Carpenter Doc business model has certainly expanded since its launch in 2008.  Since then, I’ve discovered a variety of writing opportunities on the web. What began as writing informational articles for sites like eHow.com and TheBump.com has evolved into serving as a content writer and retail copywriter for a variety of notable, long-term clients.

Here are just a few of the writing tasks we tackled in 2017:

  • Product description writing: When you’re shopping online, chances are you want details on what you’re buying. Product descriptions give specific insight into the product, explaining its uses, dimensions, and features. I developed tens of thousands of product descriptions for several retail clients, including Hayneedle and REI.
  • Category page content: Your search for a specific product on any retail website takes you to a category page, where a collection of similar items are organized. Often, these pages feature content that explains how to use the products, differentiates between products, and offers shopping tips. This year, I developed category page content for Shutterfly, StubHub, Lumens, Wayfair, and Joss and Main.
  • Blog posts: Blogs are another way retailers can engage with customers over the web. I worked with Uber, ServiceMaster, and Merry Maids to develop interesting and relevant blog posts that targeted their consumer demographics.

These are just a few of the examples of writing work completed in 2017. Several of these projects will continue into 2018, and I have already committed to two new long-term projects with popular retailers and hotel chains.

2017 editing recap

by Barbie in Company News

It’s hard to believe the end of 2017 is upon us. It’s been a busy year both personally and professionally, and I’m happy to share that Carpenter Doc enjoyed great success this year. I edited 200 projects in 2017! Our editing schedule remained full at least a month in advance throughout the year — and we’re already scheduling projects for January ’18 and beyond!

This year, I worked with students from universities across the country. As usual, we’ve maintained relationships with DNP programs at Barry University and Frontier Nursing University, working with dozens of students every semester. However, our editing client base expanded in 2017, allowing us to work with students and professors from the following schools:

  • Eastern Kentucky University
  • University of Kentucky
  • UNC Greensboro
  • University of North Florida
  • Florida Atlantic University
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Maryland
  • George Washington University
  • Walden University
  • Drexel University
  • Central Michigan University
  • University of Phoenix
  • Florida International University
  • University of South Florida

Most of our new clients found us thanks to referrals from current and past clients, colleagues, and friends. Thank you for the referrals and continued business. Here’s to more in 2018!

Hello out there!

by Barbie in Company News

Hey there! My absence on the blog might indicate that Carpenter Doc has fallen by the wayside, but I’m happy to report quite the opposite. 2017 has been an incredibly busy year, full of ongoing projects with long-term clients as well as many new writing and editing projects.

Carpenter Doc has connected with many students at new schools, including Frontier Nursing University, Walden University, and George Washington University. I continue to work with students locally at Eastern Kentucky University as well as Florida-based clients at Barry University, FIU, and other schools.

There’s more than just editing, however. This year alone, I’ve written tens of thousands of product descriptions for popular web-based retailers. If you’re an avid online shopper, chances are you’ve read my work!

The fall schedule is filling up quickly, with November projects already on the calendar. I schedule two editing projects per week due to ongoing writing commitments. So, shoot me an email at barbie@carpenterdoc.com today to see how I can help you this semester and beyond!

Already August!

by Barbie in Company News

Summer is winding down, but our schedule certainly isn’t! In July alone, we completed 35 editing projects with students from 9 schools from across the country. We landed 22 new clients, many of whom are just starting their doctoral programs, which means we will be working with them for the next several years.

We’re open to August projects and ready to edit your academic manuscript, capstone project, or dissertation!

Summer update

by Barbie in Company News

Happy June! We aren’t sure where spring semester went, but we know it kept us busy. We’ve edited about 90 projects so far in 2016 — and that’s not including the tens of thousands of product descriptions that we’ve composed for some well-known retailers!

When Carpenter Doc first launched, the summer was a slower period, with many of our clients taking the semester off. Now 7+ years later, we gain plenty of new clients in the summers, typically students who are just beginning their PhD and DNP journeys. We’re working all summer long and ready to take on your project, whether you’re a previous client or a new one.

Here’s to a productive summer of writing and editing!

Happy April!

by Barbie in Company News

We’re in the midst of another busy semester and quickly approaching our 60th editing project of 2016! April is one of our busiest months as students prepare for thesis/dissertation defense and commencement, which means our schedule fills quickly.

Currently, we are scheduling projects after April 20th. If you’re graduating this semester, get on our schedule before it’s too late!
