Do you want to boost sales of your product or service?
Of course you do — especially when you have put your heart and soul into developing it.
But are enough people actually aware of your brand, and why, with all the choices they have, they should choose your one? This is where I come in. If you want to spread the word about your business or service, I enjoy writing sponsored posts for businesses, and also creating original content for your website/blog,
I will increase your website traffic and conversion rate
Clear, compelling and creative SEO-friendly content that is also easy to find, ie search engine-friendly, leads to conversion, ie the reader clicking those buttons on your landing page.
My (SEO) words have power
Good content writing can be the difference between building bridges and burning them. Between difference and indifference. Between converting a customer and losing him.
My job is to help you to tell your business story
You tell and when your customers are good and ready you will sell.
I free you do what you do best: run your business

I worked as a sub-editor with the Irish Times for 15 years and still work freelance in that capacity.
I have written many articles and I also write a blog, which you can check out elsewhere on this site.
As a sub-editor, I learned to tailor content to different audiences. Which I continue to do as a content writer.
I recently completed a diploma course in digital marketing with my Local Enterprise Office branch in Swords, Co Dublin.
