Service Description

I produce high quality content to meet clients' specific requirements - and I'll help you focus those requirements, based on my years of experience of what works and what doesn't.

That might mean fewer words - but better ones. A thousand words on a website is a lot, and 400 words of well written, properly SEO'd copy is going to serve you better. It's not just about hits or rankings; it's about conversions, after all.

Writing skills include:

- media material - press releases and statements, quotes, Q and As, executive briefings
- online copy and SEO - blogs, web copy, website management, marketing content, ‘how to’s and information
- translating complex and technical information into easily understandable copy

- internal and stakeholder communications
