Spruce Up Your Simbi Copywriting!

25 value - Virtual OK - Posted Jan 17, 2019

Do you find it hard to get that elusive 100% on the Service Strength bar? Do you want your Simbi services and requests to sound competent and professional but don't have the time or energy to fuss with all the right punctuation?

An eye-catching title and image might get people to take the initial look, but it's the description and qualification boxes where you really sell yourself. If I have to choose a Simbi service with a vague and/or poorly written description or one with a detailed, polished description unique to that person...well, you can guess which one I'd choose! You're a competent, knowledgeable person, and the copywriting on your Simbi service should reflect that!

We'll chat a little (either text or video, I'm flexible) about what you're offering and why you're good at it. I'll offer my feedback on what I think is missing (it's usually specificity!) and what I think you should emphasize. If you like, I can copyedit a description you've already written and, if necessary, help you expand your ideas. Or, if you don't have anything written yet, I can work with you on the call to get your words on digital paper.

When it comes to feedback and editing for a Simbi service you already offer, the limit is for ONE description of a Simbi service. Most of what we discuss is easily transferable to the rest of your services, I think you'll find. But if you want further input on additional texts, please refer to my non-fiction copyediting service. :)

I can't guarantee more likes or more deals, of course -- but hey, a little makeover couldn't hurt, right? ;)

Training & Qualifications


I have a BA in English (Creative Writing) and spent five years as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader (and very occasional content writer). Simbians and real life customers have complimented me on my attention to detail and my ability to help them say exactly what they meant while still retaining their unique voice.

Reviews of Katherine


Jun 16, 2021
Katherine was incredibly helpful. I have worked with her before and I know her to be a woman of quality and consideration though I did not know of he...r skill with editing and copywriting. I am no novice in writing and she was able to find some weak spots that I've been hammered on since university (being redundant) and she was able to find themes and connections to subject matter and my audience analysis by asking good questions and applying her understanding of core concepts. She gave me the sort of help I would expect from my professors at University. And when I spoke to her in mechanical language, she totally got it and there was not a beat missed. I am very impressed and I encourage anyone to take the chance to work with Katherine on this or any of her projects. Also, she's kind and really goes the extra mile on things. Do yourself a favor and work with her! =) show more

Thank you for helping me vomit all of my ideas, gifts, and talents onto my own paper. Katherine was so much fun to work with, on the idea and business... side, and spiritual "woo woo" side =). We had the best discussions to uncover what I could bring to the table. It was always there, but it just needed another humble person to speak it into existence. show more

About Katherine Koba

Everything I enjoy comes down to words, details, and helping and educating others. In my work life, I'm a professional Swedish -> English translator. I work with corporate documents: everything fr...om annual and interim reports to internal memos to press releases. I was a freelance copyeditor and ESL tutor before that. Before that I spent two years teaching English at cram schools in South Korea, and before THAT I was a cave tour guide. In my fun life, I co-organize a local writing Meetup, translate semi-obscure Swedish women writers into English, and read a lot. I also work on my own writing projects, which tend to be character-driven SF/F and literary novels. I'm a bit of a language nerd, too; I study Russian and Korean in my spare time, and try to keep up my high school German and college French. I also like to surprise people with postcards and tea and other fun things in the mail!show more
