Used a few times and will use again - always delivers as promised.
Brilliant work as always!
Excellent work as expected :)
Excellent work. Jim transformed our website content into something readable and compelling. Great communication too.
To say that Jim's work is impeccable would be an understatement. He is able to see things from the users' perspective as well as the business' perspective and flawlessly synthesis the 2 in the content - a talent that's quite very rare.
Working with freelances can be quite challenging particularly in terms of giving instructions and QAing the work. This is not the case with Jim - working with him was an absolute breeze. He took the initiative to work on tasks that I didn't even brief him on - the quality: outstanding. I actually had goosebumps when I read some of the content he did for my site - he puts in a lot of thought into the content that he writes, researches things carefully and critically, and always delivers quality that's way beyond expectations. I'm confident he will continue to do exceptionally well and I look forward to working with him again.
Another excellent piece of work. My third or fourth from Jim A. Consistent, reliable, on-time, and - most importantly - written to the parameters I set.
Another two extremely well written pieces. It's like writing myself but without having to spend the time or put in any effort. Excellent.
Brill as always
Thanks once again my regular blogger!
Jim is simply just the best! He is reliable, insightful and an all round pleasure to work with!
Great working with Jim as always!
Jim was fantastic. He understood exactly what was wanted and delivered a lot quicker than expected. He also has a great writing style. I won't hesitate to contact Jim again when I need more high quality content which is designed to be read again.
Top class work as always!
Excellent work, thank you!
Jim work I find is On time, great quality and excellent communication. Overall the experience was the level I expect from a 5 star rate freelancer!
