Freelance Project Services

Your projects aren’t one-size-fits-all and neither are my project specialist services!

Hi there! I’m Nicki Yowell, a freelance project specialist, and I’m more than ready to tackle any and all tasks needed to help your small business or organization thrive!

Writing and communication are my ultimate specialties but, above all, I’m a versatile, enthusiastic learner. I’ve done everything from produce pizza-themed events here in my hometown of Portland to answer customer service inquiries. From the routine to the grand, the day-to-day to the big picture, I’m most certainly ready for anything. I’ve worked with local small businesses in Portland, national publications, niche retailers, academia, and nonprofit organizations.

Looking for some assistance but not sure where to start? Here are some common projects I help folks with:

--Writing and editing copy for your social media presence, website, promotional materials, and more
--Managing your events and appointments calendar
--Creating engaging email newsletters that entice and inform your audience
--Basic social media maintenance and design
--Answering complex customer email messages with thoughtful, clear responses
--Designing and promoting fabulous events or workshops to extend your audience
--Basic and not-so-basic data entry on various platforms
--Overseeing and executing those pesky details which slow down your process and take you away from the real work!

What makes me the perfect fit for your projects?

--Flexible by design: My work experience has made me especially adaptable to the ever-changing, fluid nature of small businesses. I thrive in dynamic settings!

--Local focus: With very few exceptions, I work exclusively with local businesses and organizations in the Portland, Oregon area.

--Relationships matter: While much of my work can be done remotely, I cater to local clients. It’s important that, as a project specialist, I understand and can connect with my clients when needed.

--Communication is #1: My educational background is in writing and I have immense experience with a wide range of audiences, mediums, and modes of expression. You can count on me for both precision and clarity with a healthy dash of flair!

--Specialist at-heart: I thrive in environments where I can use my flexible arsenal of skills to adapt to new niches and industries. That’s why my clients range from book editors to specialty food vendors to gardening educators.

--Creativity is key: Exceptional, visionary businesses and organizations require original thinking and inventive solutions. I’m up for a challenge!

The bottom line: there are few places and projects with which I’m not comfortable and passionate!
