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 on here 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 and will be super transparent about the expectations and details. So here it is:
As a background, we craft and sell original, authentic handcrafted mosaic artworks. The company is specialized in crafting and selling 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 the e-com site [url removed, login to view] a few months ago and now we're in a position to launch phase two of the project, optimization. Part of the optimization phase is to beef up the existing product portfolio by about 40/week 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 to you once an agreement is reached.
Because the product is art, i am looking for a creative writer that is an expert in storytelling. A previous experience in art and interior design writing is a huge plus. As i said, I am not after a descriptive copy like it is usually the case for product description. Let me explain the difference:
Descriptive writing (not what I am looking for):
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.
Storytelling (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 living space of the buyer 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, we have about 1500 products available on the site which i think is more than enough for you to form an idea of what I am after. if you think your writing style matches the requirement, then let me hear from you.
- Please only bid if you think your style matches the brand tone.
- 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 the brand's tone? If for whatever reason you're not okay with providing 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).
Please note that we have 4,000+ artworks that will need write up but the delivery will be 40 artworks/week for now. We'll also need help with blog posts (1-2/w) and email marketing.
My apologies for the long email and for being blunt! I think this is for the benefit of all. I look forward to receiving your quotations within the next week. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
