Top-quality content creation is never more important than for marketing agencies and companies. Let me highlight the expertise of your company with my copywriting and content creation skills. Here are a few examples.
Medical cannabis is a growing industry that needs accurate and helpful information, so people can understand both the advantages and disadvantages clearly. I use my journalistic training and strong communication skills to research and inform on relevant medical cannabis topics to help both businesses and individuals.
Accessing information in healthcare needs to be as clear and accessible as possible. I pride myself on commnicating sometimes complicated information clearly, so that people can find the help they need when they need it.
Sustainability is something I work at in my personal life, so it’s always a pleasure when I can turn my writer’s hand to topics about a greener world. Within my role in the marketing team for Zero Waste Berlin Festival, I explore topics related to zero waste.
I also created a range of content for travel app startup, YoorToors, covering topics like mental health while travelling solo, diversity in the travel industry, and deep dives into cities like Berlin and Salzburg. Download the articles to read at the link below:
In addition, I ran the Facebook and Instagram pages, including curating and publishing the #WhyDoWeTravel series. This series highlights diverse travel content creators who all bring a unique perspective to the world of travel. You can see some of the content shared for this series here.
I also contribute to the Solo Female Travel blog, writing informative and insightful content for the modern traveler:
SaaS and Tech Startups
As a copywriter for Phiture, a mobile growth consultancy based in Berlin, I developed a keen understanding of ASO (app search optimisation), as well as honed my concise use of language. Writing app store descriptions that include the key features while still sticking to a character limit proved my attention to detail and ability to write captivating yet concise copy. I also wrote a series of blog articles for Phiture, linked below:
Prior to this, I also created regular blogs and whitepapers for SaaS, GotPhoto, a sales platform for school photographers. Selected content for them is linked here:
I have written extensively on career advice for students and young freelancers. You can also find my professional career advisory services here.
