1/ Content marketing mentoring and editing 

You may be the expert, a leader in your field with the greatest product and service and the most helpful tips. But is your story getting out there? Wouldn’t you like your reader stats to be going off? This mentoring and editing package takes the blather and bullsh*t out of your content to bring eyeballs to your content and keep them coming back.
Get regular mentoring and editing to develop your content strategy, editorial calendar, writing skills and goals. I set up a schedule with you for regular Skype chats and for weekly/fortnightly/monthly editing deadlines. Have your copy edited and polished ready for your eager audience.

Since working with Marian, our average readers connect more with our posts, and the time spent on each page has shot up!

2/ Content Please! A website without sharp copy is like a house without windows

You are probably working with a web designer and developer on your site! Or about to. They are specialists. And so is your copywriter. Doing copy yourself is like calling in an unqualified plumber. It can leave you with unspeakable stuff where you don’t want it!

You need copy with clear calls to action. Sure, we take care of the grammar and spelling but messaging is top of mind. Even if you’re reaching lots of clients using email automation software and A/B testing, is your content connecting to the unique challenges and needs of your prospect?

I was concerned whether Marian would succeed in preparing complex scientific material for ZEG Berlin. The result was easy to understand writing for subject matter that is most definitely not!
Marian took the time to absorb the content, to ask questions and fully wrap herself around the topic. I appreciated Marian’s ability to pull out the most important concepts from the copy to create succinct headings. I couldn’t have done this job without Marian!

3/ Sales page and website copy teardowns. Win a free teardown! 

Does your sales copy spark your potential clients to action? Is there a compelling Call To Action (CTA)? Does it reveal who you are and how you can help your clients and inform your audience? Every month one or two teardowns are posted on our blog. You can submit to a teardown or learn from one I select. If you’d like to be in the running for a free web copy teardown, message me with a link and a paragraph about your aims for your site. Or if you’d like discretion, you can book a private teardown.

Preparing a white paper elevates conversations between you, your colleagues, clients, and stakeholders. A paper of clarity, quality, and relevance stands a chance of gaining press and will go like hot cakes at your next event. Helping your clients get up to speed on topics is an investment in your shared future. Write and be read.

Publishing consultancy session

Do you want to write for your business but not found your voice? Writing copy but with no clear targets? Are you unsure anyone will want to read your sh*t? They will if your copy connects.
Let’s set up a session

The consultant’s copy editor.

I’ve only ever met two writers (newspaper columnists) whose copy couldn’t be improved. And believe me, I tried! Even if you’re reaching lots of clients using email automation software and A/B testing, is your content connecting you at a deeper individual level? Are you recognising the unique and competing challenges and needs of the other person, your reader, your prospect?
Want to make your copy shine?

As a result of Marian’s writing experience and under her tuition and mentoring, I’ve become a better writer and line editor. If you need a dense topic made simple, I highly recommend her editorial consulting. Adam Rogers, Kayako

 

The DIY-Editing Course.

Are there people you would read every time, even if they wrote the phone book? Good copy, well edited, stands out. And behind every compelling writer is an editor or the teacher who helped them develop their writing and editing chops. The question I am most asked by consultants and people with a story to tell is, will anyone want to read this sh*t? The answers is yes, after editing.

The Plan-Your-Book Package

A book is a prestigious calling card that elevates you in peoples’ minds. Researching a book or paper builds your knowledge, and elevates your thinking. Writing is still the most reliable way to record your ideas before you lose them, possibly forever. A book is the most enduring device. But first, you have to write and structure the book.
What would your book look like?
