Gosh, my first day back on the blog and I’m already misleading you…let me clarify, I don’t need a copywriter – but maybe you do. Maybe you’ve decided to re-vamp your website, or perhaps you’re creating your website from scratch after relying on job boards or the Yellow Pages so far (if it’s the latter, I’d also like to officially welcome you to the 21st century…and maybe the 20th.)

Copy Blitz: How To Edit Your Content

By | Business Blog, Content, Copywriting, Language, Latest News, Marketing, Translator Talk | No Comments

I say it a lot, but I like things to be easy. That’s not to say I’m lazy (okay, maybe it says I’m a little bit lazy), but I think we can all do with getting on with the stuff that makes us feel on fire and alive and, importantly, earns us money. I think we waste a lot of time (especially online) and if we only realised how much, we might be able to figure out some tricks, or get some help, to focus on the stuff we love. Read More
