Responsibilities – The Pfizer India e-News and e-Media section is Pfizer’s unique way of keeping the world informed about Pfizer India initiatives and achievements. This simplistic, elegant and futuristic segment has a large fan following and is a growing resource for media personnel and Pfizer admirers alike. My responsibility as an editor is to make sure that the content published is accurate, interesting, soft selling and with the right dosage of SEO keywords. A talented team of writers compose the initial draft, after being fed with data from the R&D and News Team. I transform the draft into a compelling piece of content that matches Pfizer’s awe-inspiring standards and commitments. It is essential to keep in mind that the average “web-reader” has a very short attention span and I need to make sure that the content is perspicuous enough to keep the reader glued to it and make him long for more when he reaches the last line of a particular piece. A lot of people find us through search engines and it’s hence important to sprinkle the right dose of keywords also. ?

I was placed with the content development team and had to produce unique web content for landing pages, product descriptions [for e-commerce sites], blog posts, press releases, SEO articles and articles for article directory submissions. The company had a diverse range of clients – from chiropractors to swimming pool equipment dealers. The challenge was not to satisfy the respective site owners, but to step into the shoes of the surfers from different categories and create content that appealed to them. 123greetings.com 2003 - 2005 Web Content Writer ? Responsibilities – 123greetings.com is the web’s biggest free e-card site. As a content writer I had to write short and simple greeting card messages that carried deep meanings. I also had to manage the newsletters and daily blog posts. Modus Operandi “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. I’m mature enough to understand that a literary masterpiece often ends up glorifying the writer and not enlightening the reader. Reading is not about untangling a twisted mass of literary elements…it’s about enlightenment. I make sure my content caters to the readers and not my ego.
