This is not the first time I am posting this specific project on here, the first time i did a few months ago I got a flood of excellent writing but unfortunately not exactly what I was looking for. I was reluctant to post the job again since and in all honesty the experience was negative to both myself and the bidders but I've decided to give it another shot.
As a background, we craft and sell original, authentic handcrafted mosaic artworks. The company is specialized in crafting, handling and delivering the finest mosaic art, crafted by mosaic artists that apply traditional techniques associated with the mastery of mosaic design, interpretation, and assembly. We've launched (soft launch) the e-com site ([url removed, login to view]) a few weeks ago, the feedback has been amazing and overwhelming. We're now initiating phase two of the project, optimization. Part of the optimization phase is to beef up the existing product portfolio by about 250 new artworks.
I need your help writing the product description. I am looking for a specific style of writing, please check out the product section of the site for reference ([url removed, login to view]). The copy will need to be minimal, simple, not poetic and not descriptive but should tell a story. The guidelines, tone, and manner, branding elements will all be part of an extensive briefing document that will be provided once we reach an agreement is reached.
Because the product is art, i am looking for a creative writer that is an expert in storytelling. As i said, I am not after a descriptive copy like it is usually the case for product description. Let me explain the difference:
Beautifully designed and handmade marble mosaic mural to decorate your internal or external walls. It displays a tree with birds on it that can add life wherever installed
What I am looking for:
Proud, stubborn and territorial, both peacocks will forever remain in this Mexican standoff. Which one would have won the coveted tree-branch, you could spend forever contemplating while cooking dinner.
CONs: If using this art as a backsplash, you may find yourself stirring way more than is necessary.
The tone of the brand is witty, smart and focused on the story and how the art piece would make a difference to the space of the buyers and how it is relevant to them
Before bidding on this project, I strongly encourage you to go through the product section of the website, if you think your writing style can match the requirement then, by all means, let me hear from you.
- Please only bid if you think your style matches the tone I am after.
- I would require you to draft the copy for a couple of artworks for free! This is absolutely important and seems to be a point of friction with a couple of the bidders that bid on my first project. From my end, how else would I gauge if the style of the writer matches my tone? If for whatever reason you're not okay with that, you'd probably be better off skipping this bid.
- Please let me know the cost, availability, and ETA for delivery. As I mentioned the copy is minimal, approximately 25 words per product (including the main copy, the meta description and the title of the artwork).
This is the first of many projects I would require help with. Once this project is completed, I will need help with blog posts, email marketing, social content, etc...and I am also planning on adding 100 products per month to the web store all of which would require copywriting.
My apologies for the long email and for being super blunt! I think this is for the good of all. I look forward to receiving your quotations within the next week. Please let me know if you require any clarifications or if you prefer to have a look at the brief to gauge the level of effort.
