My Writing Portfolio

Samples of My Work.

copywriting portfolioI invite you to take a few minutes to look over my work to get a feel for my writing style and capabilities. If the type of project you’re interested in isn’t here and you’d like to know if I do that type of work, please contact me. Note that some of the hyperlinks will take you to PDF files. Because clients might move website links or alter content for any number of reasons over time, I’ve provided samples as .html or .pdf files to ensure you’ll see the content I created (With the .pdfs, you may need to zoom for easier reading).

 

Website Content

I’ve included several samples here, but have more that I can share via email.

AzurGo/KNAX is a Denmark-based company that creates stunning home furnishing accessories that help people keep their homes neat, organized, and clutter free—in exceptional style. Coat racks, shoe organizers, clothes racks, bag racks, and more—all have sleek, minimalist design and exquisite craftsmanship. I was thrilled to assist them in showcasing their distinctive appeal by writing the primary content for their Home and ZJUP Wall Shoe Storage pages of their website.

Masters of social media, Rachel Strella and her team at Strella Social Media have helped many businesses (of all sizes and in all industries) build their online authority and use their presence to achieve their business goals. But when it came to communicating her own value proposition on her website, like most of us, she needed some assistance.

Blogging and Blog Ghostwriting

Posts that I’ve ghostwritten for others have appeared on high-profile business blogs, such as GoDaddy Garage, Intuit, Forbes AllBusiness, Huffington Post, and Secret Entourage. I have numerous blog ghostwriting samples. As a “ghost,” I’m not at liberty to share them publicly. Please ask me to send samples via email if you wish to see them. In the meantime, you can check out some of my blogging work below:

My Blog on DawnMentzer.com

I blog weekly (sometimes more often). My focus: insight and information to help solopreneurs, freelancers, and small business professionals navigate the many challenges facing them.

Carol Roth’s Business Unplugged™ Blog

As a contributor to New York Times Best Selling author Carol Roth’s blog, I’ve written several guest posts for her site. If you’re tough enough to handle no-nonsense advice on business and entrepreneurship, subscribe to Carol’s blog. She has a line up of powerhouse contributors with a wealth of experience and knowledge.

QuickQuote Financial Blog

I’m actually not a “ghost” on this blog, but you’ll find my writing there. QuickQuote does a wonderful job of adding some pizazz to the traditionally not-so-interesting topic of life insurance. I help them by crafting weekly blog posts.

 

Newsletters

SCORE District 303 (Northeastern PA and Delaware State)

Quarterly E-Newsletter

SCORE’s District 303 leadership needed a way to stay in touch with and engage its 500+ geographically-scattered volunteers at the 13 separate chapters that are part of its region. Since 2010, I’ve been writing and publishing their e-newsletter, the “303 Advisor” which highlights chapter best practices, points SCORE mentors to valuable resources that can help them in their business consulting efforts, and shares news from the District and National levels of the SCORE organization.

 

Heritage Lawn & Landscape Care

Print Newsletter

Heritage provides its customers with helpful seasonal tips, special offers, and the latest company news with this quarterly newsletter. I interview the company’s team members, conduct supplementary research, and write the content. Burgard Design designs and publishes the piece.

 

Direct Mail, Brochures, and Other Print Marketing Collateral

Heritage Lawn & Landscape Care

Direct Mail #1

Direct Mail #2

In collaboration with Burgard Design, I wrote the copy for the above direct mail pieces designed to compel recipients to contact Heritage Lawn and Landscape Care for their lawn and landscape services.

Pro Look Uniform

Brochure

Burgard Design asked me to assist in writing copy for this brochure that needed to appeal to the various target audiences Pro Look serves.

 

Articles in Print Publications

Lancaster Physician Magazine – Feature Article – Health Care 

A collaborative effort between Hoffmann Publishing and the Lancaster City and County Medical Society, Lancaster Physician magazine serves both the physician and patient communities with relevant information and insight. I serve as the content project manager for the publication, and also occasionally write feature articles (like this one) for issues.
Lancaster Physician Magazine – Restaurant Review

Within each issue of Lancaster Physician magazine, we include a local restaurant review. We prefer to ask a member of the Lancaster Medical Society to contribute a review, but when we didn’t have a volunteer for this particular issue, I “pinch hitted.”
