Service Description

I source and create original content for travel & tourism -

Websites or Brochures:

I can write original content for your website or brochure that best communicates the emotional benefits of the travel experiences your business offers, inspiring travellers to imagine themselves at your attraction, staying at your hotel or guest-house, visiting your city or travelling through your country.

Blogs

If you're plum out of story ideas for your blog, I'll help you generate them. If you just have too much on your plate and can't find the time to write a post, then let me do it for you. A blog is just too valuable to a travel & tourism business to be allowed to fail. Entrust your blog's content to me, and enjoy the benefits a blog brings without all the hassles.

Newsletters:

I am an experienced newsletter editor. I can help you come up the stories, write them for you and, and edit contributions by your team and customers. Your opt-in subscriber mailing list is an investment in the future of your travel & tourism business. I can help your business put out a top-notch newsletter that will maintain and grow your subscriber base.

Tourism Industry Awards:

I am an award-winning submissions writer for tourism industry awards programs. I know what judges want to see in a submission, and trust me; it's not a repackaged board report.

I also provide substantive and light editing services.
