Chicago Freelance Writer Erika Gimbel

I’m a Chicago freelance writer who is passionate about writing for businesses.

I’ve been writing for corporations for more than 15 years. The types of writing I do:

  • Ghostwriting B2B and consumer articles
  • Consumer and patient education articles
  • E-learning courses, corporate training materials, e-zines
  • Thought leadership articles
  • Reports, white papers and case studies
  • SEO-friendly website copy, blog posts
  • Brochures, product sheets, marketing materials
  • Corporate newsletters
  • Presentations (branding, strategy, new business)
  • Scripts for video, audio and events
  • Press releases, media training materials, PR plans

I’ve worked on integrated marketing teams for more than a decade. I know the right questions to ask you about your market, targeting, and goals. This ensures that the writing you get from me is focused and effective.

Getting an MBA helped me fill in my knowledge gaps in finance, analytics, and operations. It helped me see beyond marketing to understand better how all facets of a business need to work in sync for a company to be successful.
