You want clear copy that tells your prospects exactly what you do.

Maybe your team is ready to release an app and you want the world to know about it.

Or you’re growing an online store and have a constant flow of new products to review.

Or you’re in search of a brand name for an invention that’s so brilliant, it outshines Windex.

Maybe the text in your website just needs a thorough scrub.

My name is Andrea Sharp. I’m an award-winning writer, and I write for all occasions. I can give you the powerful messages and content your business needs. I’ve been churning out deadline-driven communications of all kinds since… the last century!

I love working with company founders—people whose business means more to them than almost anything. The way I see it, your company is your priceless work of art. And I take your creation just as seriously as you do. If you have impeccable standards, I want to serve you. If you’re reaching for the top, I want to reach with you.

I’ve promoted software companies, web sites, entertainers, social media professionals, insurance agents, political activists, market research firms, bookkeepers, and many others. I’m shameless about my talent for turning browsers into buyers. I love nothing more than joining forces with other creatives to inspire visuals from words and words from visuals that leave prospects thinking, “I want that.” (“And that.”) (“And that!”)

If you can find a writer who’s faster and better than me, I’ll have your discount coupon stuffed into millions of fortune cookies and pick up the tab myself.

Let’s talk so I can think up a way to make that offer even sweeter!


Taking care of communications needs for people like you for over 15 years, I’ve discovered patterns and processes that ensure both quality and efficiency. I’ve been through it many times before, so I know the territory. I can get you where you want to go as fast as possible. Before any writing even begins, I’ll work with you to pin down your messages and everything you want to communicate to your market. I’ll use tools to organize that information. Then we’ll analyze selected information to strategize the best approaches, and systematically implement each campaign.


What could be more fun than figuring out how to get a machine in some place like San José, California, to fall in love with the business poetry I painstakingly write for my clients? Not too many people can weave a compelling story around the seemingly haphazard thread I pull from choice lists of popular search terms.
I started getting the hang of SEO way back in 2004. So set me loose on spoon-feeding search engines, and watch what I can do for your rankings and traffic.

Content and Copy


I’ve been at it for many years. And I’m here to fill the communication gap in your business with words that win customers and close deals. I turn your message and masses of information into the content you need.

  • Clear, accurate, captivating descriptions of products for catalogs and online stores.
  • Notices, news, and insider-messages for the media, wire services, club members, and fans.
  • Word art designed for the display areas of phones, tablets, banners, web pages, and print.
  • Raves and lures for saturating social networks.
  • Feature-by-feature reports on your products and services for landing pages.
  • Highly retweetable plugs and other irresistible teasers packed into a few characters.
  • Intelligent and intriguing comments with link-backs on popular blogs and online hangouts.
  • Ingenious titles for page-turning features, interviews, email blasts, and newsletters.
  • Blurbs for brochures and catalogs about cars, condos, camping gear, or whatever you sell.
  • Interviews with the most followable experts, celebrities, and interesting ordinary folks.
  • Feature articles.
  • Buzz-breeding for upcoming events.
  • Announcements of discounts, freebies, and coupons.
  • Promo for blasts and pre-release countdowns.
  • Email messages and follow-ups from you to your leads.
  • And, of course, more. Every project is unique, and I want to hear about yours.

I’d love to chat about what you’re up to. Give me a call, or drop me a line, and let’s explore what we might do.



I use the best tools to track results. Let the numbers speak for themselves!


Count On Me

My customers come back year after year because I consistently deliver quality results by the promised due date. Often before.
The limit of your highest expectation is the barrier I will try to break. You’ll see exactly what I mean by that before we finish our first project together.
Drop me a line, or call me to set up a quick no-obligation conversation. I want to hear what’s on your mind and get started with some ideas about how I might put it into powerful words, just the way you’d like to say it.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

I take so much pride in my work, it’s almost disgraceful. So if you ever are not thrilled with what I do for you, I won’t give up until you are.
As you know, that’s what copywriters call “risk-free.” The way I do things, your satisfaction is the only option.
Give me a call to start a no-obligation conversation.
Or, even better, let me get you started right away: if you haven’t done it yet, pour out some thoughts in a rough description of your toughest writing assignment and email it to me. I’ll comb through it and if you like the first-draft brainstorm I send back, we’ll take it from there. If it doesn’t show you that I can give you what you need, you owe me nothing and all my gems are yours to keep.
