"Josh understands that when it comes to the web, copywriting is UX, directing the user’s attention, behavior, and progress. He’s also that rare copywriter with design chops. He can not only foresee how language will play with layout, type, and color, but can mock it up himself."

—Andréa López

Spanish | Performed Clean-Up service on website and significantly increased its SEO rankings. Rewrote signage, promotional and informational material for second office.

[translated] "I barely remembered that we had a site until Joshua, one of our former clients, searched for our second location to get a new retainer. It turns out the copy was written by a web developer a long time ago and it was full of mistakes. Joshua offered us his services and our site is now completely clean and polished — and number one in SEO rankings for orthodontists in our region!"

Consulted on brand and product line naming, art direction, and logo design.

[translated] "Joshua’s work was invaluable to the relaunch of our company. We were ready to make significant changes and ended up starting from scratch. He anticipated our needs and guided us through everything, helping us identify where and how we had gone wrong in the past and showing us how to avoid future missteps. His turnaround time was amazing — always available to answer questions or do additional work as the need arose. His writing was exactly what we needed. We loved it and, apparently, so do our new customers! We highly recommend him."

Physician, Private Practice

Spanish, English | Wrote all copy for Spanish language website. Proofread promotional flyer for second printing. Collaborated on and independently wrote articles and blog posts distributed through the website’s blog and Facebook account. Edited and proofread existing articles/updates and then translated them into English. Optimized the layout of the former for distribution across various platforms.

[translated] "The designer of our first flyer made many obvious mistakes and that’s how Joshua found me. I had a good web developer but he too made many writing errors. I was also exhausted by managing all of my social media by myself. I knew it was time to bring Joshua on board. He fixed us up completely and now everything is harmonious and persuasive. He even made suggestions about which services to highlight based on their profitability and I’ve definitely noticed a more desirable clientele coming through the door requesting better services."
