I can also revamp your web copy, redo your marketing materials or run your email list.

I help you to fully express who you are and what you do with your words.

Ghostwriting   Telling your story, whether that be thought leadership content, LinkedIn articles or something longer.

Squarespace

I can make you a site, like this one. Or this one. Or this one.

Ideal for someone who wants to showcase them, or their business, in a clean, professional looking way.

Can integrate e-commerce and email tools too.

Carrd

A 1-page site builder. Good for a simple portfolio, a hub for all your ventures or even…

A great way for you to launch business ideas, events or products quickly and easily.

Perfect for collecting customer information.

Examples here and here.

Mailchimp

Email is the most effective marketing tool in terms of conversion.

Mailchimp is a market leader in providing an easy way to run your email list.

I can set this up for you. It’s how I currently run my own.

Notion

It’s early days on this one but in some ways, this could be the most powerful tool in my quiver.

If you want to create a hub for your project, travel guides, guest manuals for your Airbnb or even a business wiki outlining how to do everything at work, this could be your best choice.

Typeform

The best survey tool I know.

Easy to create custom surveys to get feedback from customers or even to sell to specific groups by integrating Stripe and the like.

Gives your business more of a human touch than a standard data collection process.
