Creating Content With Creative Clout

Wanderer with a camera, word scribbler, and web content editor

WHO

I'm Lauren, a freelance writer and photographer born and bred near Edinburgh, Scotland. 
I’ve spent most of my life telling stories through photos and personal journals; I don’t think there’s any greater feeling than penning stories to paper or visualizing them through photographs. I've worked for over a decade in the creative industry and find real fulfilment in building stories that captivate people. 


WHAT

Content
I create engaging and on-brand content such as: blogs, social media posts, email copy, and web copy.

Digital
Content marketing is more than just social media; it's planning, strategy, and execution. From content calendars, scheduled social media posts, and working with Content Management Systems, I've worked with well-known brands and ambitious start-ups.

Creative
I create stories that captivate and write headlines that grab attention.


Why

When digital thinking and content creation collide, you're onto something good. With technologies advancing and consumer behaviour changing rapidly, I help to make sure your digital marketing has a meaningful message. It's about your brand; it's about connecting with your audience. 


WHERE

In a world that's quickly going remote, I work from anywhere.
I work with clients from all over the globe. Google Hangouts works a treat as does good old-fashioned email.
I have experience writing in both UK and US English, so I know when to use 'favourite' over 'favorite' and 'colour' over 'color'.


WHEN

Whenever you need content creation. If you have an online presence and want to meaningfully speak to an audience, that time is probably now.
