CLEVER CONTENT 

FOR INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES

Content writing and management

Keeping your website fresh for those SEO spiders, solving your customers’ problems with a sharp blog that cuts straight to what they need, sending out newsletters that people actually want to open.

It’s exhausting too. You have much more important things to be doing in your business than writing weekly newsletters and blogs.

Or perhaps your web designer has asked you for content so they can finish your site and you just don’t know where to start.

We work with independent businesses to create website copy, newsletters, and blogs. Our services also include content management, repurposing, and editing. 

Membership sites are our specialist area. We understand that websites can easily become unruly and difficult to manage. Our years of experience saves you time.

Episode 16 – Tone of Voice with Nick Parker

Episode 16 – Tone of Voice with Nick Parker

I chat to Tone of Voice expert Nick Parker about how he got into Tone of Voice training, what his Voicebox product is and some of the good and bad examples of tone of voice on the market.

Nick also talks to me about what it takes to create a weekly newsletter that people actually want to open (and even pay money for)

Content as individual as your business

You are far too busy running your business that you don’t have time to commit to creating regular content, keeping it refreshed, producing a weekly newsletter or writing all those social media posts.

These things are important but there is so much to do and you’re a bit lost on the back of WordPress, too. You realise that a scatter-gun approach is not the best use of your time and doesn’t get you the results you need.
