We’ve worked with Mark on more than one occasion to help us write press releases. He does good work, and is punctual about the deliverables. We would recommend Mark for his services.

Darcy Mayer
Chief Technology Officer Docverify

Mark worked as a staff writer on the PC magazine and website I edited and his writing was marked by a great sense of humour balanced with sound technical judgement. He wrote a range of articles from short news pieces to longer features, one of which was licensed by the University of Alberta. He also worked on commercial copy jobs for advertorial integrations for clients such as Microsoft. Mark’s approach to writing was imaginative and creative, while at the same time really grasping the magazine’s voice and staying true to its approach.

Professional writer, great to work with. Thank you!

Peter Timko
Head of Marketing LX Group

Mark has been one of the best writers I’ve worked with on Elance to date. He has shown he is extremely knowledgable on what he’s writing on, always finishes projects ahead of time and is extremely professional. Hes’ also very thorough in his work and asks great questions to make sure he knows every relevant detail for each project. I’ll be hiring Mark again for many projects.

Joe Widmer
CEO Flux Digital Marketing

I highly recommend Mk1 Copywriting. The project was not easy from the start. Mark was very professional and patient with me. He gave me the material in the format as needed for the website designer to add it to the new website easily. Mark was 100% committed to my project and willing to go the extra mile. He speaks and understands the English language very well so it wasn’t difficult to express my vision and for him to grasp the concept. He was available to speak over Skype which is a big plus so I didn’t have write everything. I feel Mark’s knowledge and experience in writing, sales, marketing, business, SEO, and the internet was a valuable asset for my project. I now consider him as a part of my business team and I will continue to use his services. Great Job!

Bernadette Merrill
President BDT Energy Group

Mark is excellent at keeping a schedule and providing great content. He has written for me countless times and always comes across with a clear, concise article detail exactly what I’m looking for. In the past, he has written articles that have gone viral and were shared across many platforms, pulling thousands of engaged viewers to my site. I run a very technically driven site and to Mark’s credit, he does his homework and comes across knowing exactly what he’s talking about. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a quality content writer

Remy Burnaugh
Head of Marketing Vonazon

Mark was a fantastic copywriter who provided me with detailed and informative articles, well within his given deadlines. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with him and I would recommend him to anyone looking for authentic copy on Law. He has a professional and friendly personality and perfect work ethic. He really made my job a lot easier!

George Peebles
Indipendant marketing consultant

I’ve been on a hunt for a good writer with sound SEO understanding for quite some time and after having little success with 10 different writers I am extremely pleased to have found Mark. He has been very accommodating, dependable, able to adjust his writing tone, come up with ideas quickly, carry out thorough research and go out of his way to make sure the end result is exceptional.

Shuly Yacob
Co-founder UareL Marketing

Mark was clearly the most expensive one out of the four content-marketing authors we hired for our new project. Yet he is the one we’ll keep on working with, because the quality of his articles is at a completely different level. He’s not “just” writing superficial texts including the wanted keywords, but also includes thorough research, proposes his own ideas and performs his own analysis of what to write about to promote our product.

With every article he understands better what we’re looking for, so there’s less need for follow-up and revisions. It’s great to have someone who shows initiative and that we trust, so the time we spend on follow-up and revisions is kept at a minimum. If you’re worried about costs give Mark a try at three or four articles, and you’ll quickly see if the extra cost is worth it in your particular case. It definetely was for us. Highly recommended.

Robin Dominik Havre
CEO AppFabrikken & NewIntranet

Highly professional copywriter who goes for the last mile and delivers perfect result on time. This freelancer does not write superficially but dives deep into the topic, even if it is technical by nature, and thus is capable to finish perfect work. Excellent! Thank you for your work.
