"Paul is a pleasure to work with. He reliably meets deadlines and communicates regularly throughout the course of a project. While many writers need a bit of cajoling to move past the blog post paradigm and create spectacularly in-depth, comprehensive content, Paul always delivers more than I expect. If you're looking for a writer, I highly recommend you hire Paul - as long as you leave some availability for me!"
"I hired Paul to write an EBook for my company. From the beginning, Paul immersed himself in the subject matter and made thoughtful and educated recommendations for adjusting the outline we provided. He also added visual queues and outtakes to help enhance the EBook appearance overall. His writing was intellectually engaging without coming off as dry or boring. I was extremely impressed with Paul's skills and especially for the value of the finished product. I would definitely hire Paul again for future Ebooks and/or other writing projects."
"Paul has been an excellent addition to my writing process. He’s able to take my technical articles and ideas and find context and meaning for my words. He’s also a great collaborator and his effort visibly shines through his work. He comes highly recommended."
"Paul was a consummate professional and much needed expert in consulting, marketing, branding and strategy when we were starting our business. His commitment to product and delivery in spite of our many changes was top class. We would highly recommend Paul's services to any business, whether a small startup or established player."
"Working with Paul was a great experience, he was able to understand my business and he wrote content that reflects my vision and the services I provide. The fact that he has a background in business and IT played a major role. He delivered on time and provided very good content."
"Paul's analysis of our platform provided many valuable suggestions. From analyzing the features we've built - and those we haven't, to helping improve the clarity of the copy and observing where our user experience design was lacking, Paul has opened our eyes by presenting us with a clear and original perspective, which can be easily lost when you're building a new product for months on end. He comes highly recommended."
"Paul was an enthusiastic, professional, and pleasant writer to work with. He was always very prompt with his deadlines and received feedback very well. He was also always willing to go above and beyond in all his assignments and take initiative to create additional content he felt fit with the pieces he was asked to create. Overall Paul was a great addition to our team and I would recommend him for your freelancing needs."
"Paul brings a real tenacity to research and writing. We've thrown some difficult assignments from some pretty esoteric markets his way. Each time, he's nailed the research and turned around thoughtful, insightful work."
"I want to take a minute to thank you for your hard work and partnership on this. Your work will enhance the overall site, which all of Global Technology Office will use and enable us to keep to just one site. This is of huge benefits to my team and the organization as a whole. Cheers!"
"Paul, I want to thank you with your invaluable help in writing and editing Shoppology. It has helped me explain what we provide to our clients by explaining human psychology in a way that everyday people can comprehend. Thanks!"
"Just following up on our conversation of a couple of weeks ago regarding Paul Maplesden. He's done a great job helping the Portfolio, Program and Project Management (PPM) methodology team make their materials more accessible for those across EMEA who speak English as a Second Language (ESL)."
"We worked with Paul in the early days of Simply Wall St. Paul fitted perfectly into our target demographic and pro-actively suggested documenting his experience investing using SWS. The content Paul produced was well researched, structured and most importantly clearly explained the user experience in a way our target audience could understand. He produced a series of 3 articles which turned out to be very popular with our existing users and helped to generate significant new traffic to the site. Paul was a pleasure to work with and his content produced excellent results."
"Thank you so much for your work. Before I started, I was a little hesitant but now I know who to contact if I need anything content and editing related. It was extremely easy to talk with you and you understood my request perfectly. I will certainly recommend you!"
"Paul Maplesden has written for some of our most challenging clients and excelled. He's good-natured, a thoughtful collaborator, responds well to critique, and meets deadlines. And of course he's also a fantastic researcher and writer!"
