nDash Writer Profile for Raul Mercado


About Me

My mission when building copy is to highlight, expand, and simplify the process and concepts that help others succeed in work, life, and wellness.

I'm a reliable freelance writer with over 5 years of experience researching, writing, and editing copy for various industries including digital marketing, entrepreneurship, SaaS tools, and outdoor travel. The logical, technical part of my brain craves an understanding of structures while the creative part seeks balance through nature. 

My path to effective content writing has been paved with hard work and ambition. I believe intentional learning and practical action beats natural talent every day of the week. I'm here to show others it's possible to transition from a full-time manager in the service industry into a six-figure content writer career with the right outlook, work ethic, and an insatiable curiosity for learning. 

I've written hundreds of blog articles, emails, sales pages, landing pages, guides, and more. At this point, I'd love to work with good-spirited entrepreneurs or content teams that expect high-quality content but also believe in the open communication and process it takes to get there.
