+Mark Orr Yes - they have small electric motors in them to boost your own. Shame they cost about 1800 Euros ... I could buy a car for that...

This elegant lady lives in my home town - Kingston, Ontario. Her longevity must be down to her daily Scotch and the healthy Kingston air...!

Introduction

These days, setting up a website, blog, video, social media page, newsletter, email campaign or even a brochure or flier ... is really easy, isn't it? 

Trouble is, once you've used all our amazing technology to set these media up, you've then got to write the text or spoken words.

Particularly if you're the busy owner of an SME or other organization, you may not have the time or inclination to write words that do justice to your marketing objectives. Or, even if you do have time, you need some editing help to give it that final polish.

This is where I can help.

With a background in journalism, copywriting and scriptwriting, I've worked on writing projects for dozens of clients including...

  • the Ford Motor Co
  • General Motors Europe
  • LandRover
  • BWM UK
  • AXA Insurance
  • Eli Lilly
  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • the NHS
  • etc.

...at the corporate end, plus dozens of exciting and inspiring SMEs/micro-businesses at the smaller end. The experience and know-how I have gained (and there's always room for more) are outstanding. 

With that plus more than 30 published nonfiction books out there, two of which have been organic #1 best sellers on Amazon, I've earned my place in the top ranks of business writing, blogging and content writing specialists across most of the major English language markets.

Choose from... 

  • Blogging, content writing (also do workshops, talks and 1-2-1 coaching)
  • Website text
  • Video/audio scripts
  • Social media input
  • Offline media
  • Book coaching
  • Speech writing

Plus, take a look at HowToWriteBetter.net - a site I started from scratch in 2011 that's now a PR3 with nearly 2 million page views ... winner of Highly Commended prize in UK Blog Awards 2015 ... and honored by a place in Guy Kawasaki's Alltop.com as one of their top 300 social media sites worldwide. More than 1,000 articles on, well, how to write better - across all disciplines. It's a very useful resource.

I look forward to learning how I can help you. Let's talk - on suze@suzanstmaur.com
