Hello,

English isn't my first language and I have a hard time finding the right wording for what's supposed to appear in my H1 tag in the English version of my website.

I'm doing web design and logo design and I want to stress the fact that I can work for anyone from anywhere in the world.

So, I've come up with "the specialist in remote creation" ... but a Google search with these words lead me to think that it's not the right wording for what I'm trying to convey.

Could some english native tell me what expression I should better choose?

Thanks a lot for the help! smile.gif

How about what you just wrote above:

Well, the problem is that I doubt that web users would do searches with either "anyone", "anywhere", "world".
I need to find something that is keyword-wise.

International
Global
Worldwide
Outsource

I'd probably start there - I'm unfortunately pretty terrible at microcontent, so I probably can't help much beyond that.

Thanks smile.gif

How about "your virtual specialist in original website/logo creation" ?

Does it sound natural/correct?

You don't need to worry about the searches people are doing for this component. You want it to be a selling point more than an SEO tactic.

Due to the language barriers you pointed out, the truth is you really can't work for anyone from anywhere in the world. Most of us can't.

Having access to potential customers anywhere in the world doesn't mean someone is able to create web pages for them all. It's like calling customer service and being routed to someone in India who does not speak American (which is our own version of English).

We have to repeat the same simple issue over and over which someone in America could straighten out in no time, yet the person on the other end of the line cannot understand the most basic conversation. callme.gif Simply being able to speak English is not enough.

Just as we might be confounded by trying to perform customer service for those in England (speaking a more proper version of English but with a slang all their own) or even Ireland (due to strong accents of their own), you may be trying to spread yourself a little too thin with those claims unless you are working with someone who is more comfortable with English.

Chances are you will run into the same issues you are having here on other people's sites as well when it comes to both main site content and things in the page such as the h1 tag.

Just something to think about. dntknw.gif
