….all while creating products to sell, building your website and handling everything else it takes to run a business????

Trust me, I’ve been there. I kept making excuses like, “I can’t afford to outsource.” While simultaneously wasting weeks (and thousands of dollars) trying to figure out how to build a website.

Here’s a little secret:

Investing in your business doesn’t cost you money if it saves you time. It all comes down to working with the right people.

Time is the one currency you can never get back.Are you spending yours wisely?

Imagine waking up on launch day with...

Less stress & More time

…You know what they say! Time is money. Stop wasting it on trying to master copywriting when you were born to be a CEO. 

Words that work for you

…Because nobody has time to do it all (I know I sure don’t). And that’s okay. We’ll do the research and create copy that converts for you. 

SEO Optimization

…Let’s face it. If nobody can find your content, what’s the point? We’ll implement on-page SEO tactics that will get you noticed.

RESEARCH BACKED STRATEGIES

Meet The Content Creator

Hi! I’m Cydney, the creative brain behind Departed Creature. I’m a cognitive behavioral neuroscientist, writer, poet and full-time weirdo.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes, writing for your own brand can be the hardest part of the process.

Why? Because we’re our biggest critics.

We get all gassed up on our ideas, sit down to write, and suddenly realize we’ve been sucked into a void of nothingness. 

Lucky for you, there’s a few insane people (me) out there who actually enjoy that process. 

Treat Yourself To Something Stellar

We’ll take care of the rest.

"I trust she will deliver on time every time, and her attention to detail makes the entire process smoother!"

“We work with a lot of writers and freelancers, and Cydney is one of the best! She goes above and beyond to deliver quality optimized content, and she is my go-to for topics that need more research and/or a clever tone. “

-Caron Cooper, Creative Director, CEO of CannaSiteCo.

"If you care about your business and your brand voice talk to Cydney."

“Cydney was a big help in getting our blog strategy straightened out and on a good track. She is the type of leader who understands the big picture and will help you produce results with your blog, not just writing blog posts for the sake of blogging.”

-Kyle Dammann, Co-Founder and CMO of InnerCircle

Briana Arteaga, CEO of B.Fit Fitness

"Passing on our writing needs to Cydney has opened up capacity for our team to refocus energy on other areas."

“I didn’t realize how badly I needed help with my messaging!  I can say with confidence that the level of professionalism and expertise Cydney has provided has changed our relationship with potential clients.

We Promise To...

Provide you with an attentive, supportive and lucrative copyriting partnership filled with...

High Quality Communication

My biggest pet peeve in business partnerships is unresponsiveness. I will always do my best to return your e-mail inquiries within 48 hours. 

If you’re looking for quick answers, we can set up additional calls to provide you the support you need. 

Personalized Strategies

There is no one-size-fits-all copywriting solution. Each brand requires its own unique special sauce. While I can’t promise immediate results (your marketing team will play a large role in this), I can promise to meet you where you’re at and provide you with the tools to start moving you toward success. 

Ongoing Copy Support

 I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to pay for something I didn’t absolutely love. All of my a-la-carte and package deals come with one complimentary revision. 

And for those with long term contracts, we’ll meet monthly to ensure your copy remains on brand!

Frequently Asked Questions

In this economy? Duh! I typically charge 50% upfront and 50% at time of submission, but I am open to putting together an arrangement that fits your needs. Let's figure it out together! 

 

Please reach out to me at cydney@departedcreature.com or fill out the form below to view a full list of my services and current pricing! 

All project quotes vary depending on the work required. During our free 15-minute discovery call, we will work together to dial in your content needs. You can expect a price point within 24 hours of our call! If you're unhappy with it, we'll shoot you a few more offers that fit your budget.

Given the nature of my work, I do not offer refunds. But I do offer one free revision at the time of submission! If you're unhappy with the content I produced, I will sit down with you, listen to your constructive criticism, and make necessary changes. 

Abso-freaking-lutely! It’s our job to produce content that reads like you wrote it yourself. How do we do that? 

  • We get to know you in 1:1 calls.
  • We do tons of background and market research on your brand.
  • We read your existing work and study your habits. 
  • We ask you questions to help us understand your core mission and values.

Yes! It would be pretty rude if we didn't, in my opinion. 

All of our copywriting services come with a complimentary revision. If you're not happy with the content we produce at the time of submission, we'll make the necessary edits and re-submit the work within 2-3 business days. 

Note: Large projects may take longer.

I specialize in pregnancy, travel, plant medicine and mental health. Some other niche's that I have written extensively in are music, festivals, sports and life insurance. 

What makes me a specialist in the niches I work with is mix of first hand experience and education. 

I have a background in cognitive behavioral neuroscience, which allows me to excel in research and break down complex topics in layman's terms. 

As for plant medicine and travel -- these are areas of my life that I have been extremely passionate about for the majority of my life. I have traveled to various world countries, participated in sacred plant medicine ceremonies, volunteered with MAPS, worked as a psychedelic harm reduction counselor through Zendo Project and worked with various plant medicine companies. 

I think pregnancy goes without saying -- I've lived it. Trust me, I know it pretty well.

Yes! As a freelance writer and researcher, I enjoy learning about new topics and conducting research to put together informational and relatable content. 

 

If it's something I feel I can't handle, I will tell you straight up and refer you to one of my partners! If there's one thing about me, it's that I'm not trying to waste either of our time. After all, time is money.

I have a B.S. in Cognitive Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of California, San Diego. 

 

While I was attending college, I worked in the Mind, Experience, Perception Lab with Dr. Karen Dobkins studying Mindfulness, Mental Well-Being and Emotional Disclosure. 

Yes! I thoroughly enjoy writing SEO targeted landing pages and copywriting for partial or full websites. 

Absolutely. I am well versed in the world of on-page Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Whether you provide me with the keywords, or need me them to dig them up for you--I will implement best on-page SEO practices to ensure your website or blog articles start ranking on google. 

 

Yes! While I am not a web developer, I built this beautiful blog that you are on now, and am very comfortable working in the back end of your WordPress site. Especially if you use Elementor. Whether it's updating the copy on your website or uploading new blog posts, we can absolutely work this into your package. 

 

Note: I do NOT write CSS or HTML

My turnaround time depends on the size of the project. Most 1,000-2,000 word blog posts have a 48 hour turnaround time. Same goes for single landing pages. If you're looking for full website copy, this will take a bit longer. Please reach out to me and we will set up a time to go over the details of your project! 

Absolutely! Ghostwriting is how I got started in the copywriting industry. Please send a message to cydney@departedcreature.com or fill out the form below to view my ghostwriting portfolio!
