Who am I?

This is me...

This is me…

Plain and simply…I am a proofreader, editor and copywriter with an absolute passion for the written word and creating words that work. To make my words even more powerful, I have over 19 years of experience in marketing, direct marketing, CRM (Customer Relationship Management), segmentation and publishing to name a few. For each project I am able to input from a strategic perspective to ensure that the messages are absolutely spot on and working hard for your brand! When it comes to proofreading and editing I have a vast array of experience within many different industry sectors.

Ensuring that your collateral including websites, marketing materials, documents amongst many others contain no mistakes, is critical to a professional reputation amongst your clients and potential clients. I have years of experience within proofreading and editing including magazines, marketing materials, websites, training manuals, theses and more. Besides proofreading and editing I also do copywriting. My rates are affordable and I always deliver on time.

I write content, proofread or edit anything from blogging, facebook, website articles, manuals, corporate brochures, toolkits, advertising and then some. Take a look at my Portfolio page to get an idea of what I’ve done.

I have, as part of my marketing career, done extensive proofreading and editing. I loved this and quite by chance I worked on a number of content management, proofreading and copywriting jobs…and the clients kept coming back for more. With this response, I assumed that I was doing a good job. I realised that this is what I was meant to be doing as I love it so much. So that’s how I landed up where I am today!

Besides all the marvellous career stuff, believe it or not I am also a person…yes I know, it’s true! I am mom to one, yes one is enough for me,  highly energetic and entertaining 7 year old boy, who certainly keeps me on my toes. It’s an awesome ride.

    Hi, thanks for the follow. Nice to know that if I make localised references, at least *some* of my readers will get them 😉 Cheers, Cole x
