Great Content Done Right

You're under pressure to deliver quality content. You need an exceptional writer you can depend on. So you've decided to see if there's a freelancer out there who can help. And fortune, SEO, LinkedIn or a referral brought you here.

Nice to meet you! I’m Bonnie Nicholls, a freelance writer specializing in health, energy, Scrum/Agile, web services, and home design. Content managers like you hire me to write articles, white papers/reports, case studies, ebooks, ghostwritten articles, and blog posts.

Why do they hire me?

  • My journalism background means I'm tenacious about deadlines, accuracy, sourcing, and telling a compelling story.
  • My 10+ years in web-based corporate communications taught me how to work with executives, manage large writing projects, and write for the web.
  • My experience supporting digital marketers and the San Diego American Marketing Association ensures you don't have to explain the sales funnel, gated content or "above the fold" to me. I get it.

In other words, I'm a pro, and my job is to deliver great content to you every time.

Got a project? Tell me about it, even if it's not within those industries I cited above. Journalists like me can write about almost anything. Just don't ask me to write about neurons or black holes. We all have our limits.

  • As the VP Content for AMA San Diego, I could always count on Bonnie to nail every blog post that I assigned to her. She helped me flesh out topics, provided additional research, and turned in clean copy. A couple of her posts were in the top 20 blog posts in pageviews for the year. She was also a key contributor on a 6,500+-word Glossary of Digital Marketing Terms. She's been a great content partner. Consider me a fan!

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Bonnie for the past year and would highly recommend her for several reasons. When I work with Bonnie on each project, I get so much more than a competent writer; I get a true partner and collaborator on the project. She is an excellent writing consultant. Whether she's working on an executive summary or an article, she offers creative ways to present the content that will have the most impact on our readers.

    Plus, she's a highly skilled writer who is professional, resourceful and conscientious. For most assignments, she interacts directly with our members. I trust her completely to do her research, treat sources with respect, and make the interview process as enjoyable as possible.

  • Bonnie wrote a case study for us in record time. She struck just the right tone, offered us several headline options, and provided text for call-outs and sidebars that our designer could easily incorporate. We were so pleased with the results, we asked her to right a press release based on the case study. I would hire her again in a flash.

She is a strong, resourceful writer who is thoughtful and conscientious in her approach. She asks lots of questions to understand not only the content strategy, but also the business strategy behind the project. This allows her to provide the most possible value. I can always depend on Bonnie to hand in excellent work.
