Dane Cobain: Freelance Writing Portfolio 2019

  1. 1. Dane Cobain Writing Portfolio 2019
  2. 2. Hi, I’m Dane! I’m a published author, a freelance writer, a book blogger, a poet and an (occasional) musician. Nice to meet you! I went freelance in the summer of 2017 after working agency-side for six years as a social media marketer. I went freelance so I could pursue my passion — I just love to write, and freelancing provides me with a way to monetise it.
  3. 3. What I Do First and foremost, I’m a writer. I have seven books on the market (and more coming soon), with an average rating of 7.6/10 from 150+ reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Before freelancing, I worked for six years as a social media marketer and so I have a good grasp of most digital marketing techniques. These two interests, combined with my love of new technologies, led to my three specialisms: Publishing // Marketing // Technology
  4. 4. What I Charge My 2019 rates are the same as my 2018 rates and I’m happy to work either with an hourly rate or per 100 words. Where possible, I prefer to work with my hourly rate, but I’m flexible. PER HOUR: £35 GBP // €40 EUR // $45 USD PER 100 WORDS: £4.50 GBP // €5 EUR // $5.50 USD
  5. 5. Sample Work Publishing: Publishing Addict // Twitter for Authors (Guest Post) Marketing: // Lead Generation Blogs Miappi // Eight Examples of Weird UGC Technology: Disruptor Daily // Regular Blogs Other: Alexander Michael // Boss Guide E-Book Everhour // Basecamp 3 Ultimate Guide
  6. 6. Sample Clients Emmanuel Fombu MD (right) Dr. Fombu is a medical futurist, silicon valley investor and head of global strategy and innovation at Johnson and Johnson. I’ve ghost- written two full length non-fiction books for him and manage his marketing. EuroVPS/GrowthMentor EuroVPS is a managed hosting provider and GrowthMentor is a platform for matching entrepreneurs with professionals mentors. I write marketing materials, blog posts, email campaigns and more.
  7. 7. What People Say “Dane helps us with marketing campaigns, book launches, and excellent emails that have resulted in long-term engagement with our mailing list. I highly recommend him as a professional who has proven to be reliable, intelligent, knowledgeable and talented.” – Cydney O’Sullivan, 16 Times Bestselling Author “Dane is a pleasure to work with and I will definitely do so again in the future. In his role as a ghost writer, he’s very easy going and contributes positively to discussion. This really helped me to clarify my thinking, enabling me to focus on the points that I wanted to make. Subsequently, he did a great job finessing my thoughts whilst still making it sound ‘authentically me’. ” – Alex Whitbread, CEO of Alexander Michael
  8. 8. Why You Should Hire Me I’m good at what I do, which is why I’m able to charge what I charge. I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for, and I hope you’ll give me a chance to prove it. I only apply for jobs that I’m passionate about. One of the perks of being a freelancer and being your own boss is that for every job listing, you’re interviewing the client as much as the client is interviewing you. If I’ve applied for a job that you’ve posted, it’s because I genuinely believe I can help. Plus my co-worker (Biggie) is very demanding and he keeps asking me for treats.
