Hi. Thanks for stopping by. I’m Robert Springer, a content marketing writer with more than 10 years experience creating the content that makes businesses like yours grow.
I write frequently about tech, science and real estate. I’ve written about everything from the science of making whiskey barrels to why the collaboration tool Slack is overtaking email.
Before turning to freelance writing, I worked in the finance, entertainment and tech industries. Business writing is in my DNA. And before that, journalism school taught me the value of research and asking the right questions.
Are you feeling stuck with your content? I can help.

Kind words from clients
Robert Springer is an editor’s dream-come-true. He is an excellent reporter as well as writer who delivers work that meets all the basic tenets of good journalism: fair, balanced, accurate—plus comprehensive and understandable. He was one of my top “go-to” writers for the nationally distributed magazine where I was editor-in-chief. Robert always made sure he understood the assignment, and I had no worries he would turn in top-notch, clean copy—and usually well ahead of deadline. I recommend him without hesitation for any writing assignment you might have.
Former Editor-in-Chief, Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine and Think Realty Magazine
Robert wrote for me and IEEE Engineering360. He produced well-crafted copy on deadline and across a range of topics for our audience of engineers. He was high on my go-list of contributors, and I only stopped using him because of shifting budget priorities internal to my organization.
Thanks for reaching out.
