Small business SEO copywriter in Sydney

I’m a freelance small business SEO copywriter in the Sutherland Shire, Sydney, Australia. I’ve always enjoyed writing and learning about other businesses. Making your business website stand out from the rest with SEO friendly words is a challenge I embrace.

I have a niche, but I love to write about anything

Many of my articles and the websites I write are for the construction industry. I’ve written for plumbers, landscape gardeners, builders, joiners and many other trades.

However, my background is in science education and I’m also a member of the Australasian Medical Writers Association. This means I write SEO copy for a range of small businesses, but I particularly enjoy looking at the features of a more scientific or health related product and showing the benefits it offers for the everyday person.

I write articles for publications

Alongside SEO copywriting, I also write for Fairfax and NewsCorp. My articles cover many different topics, ranging from an interview I did with the owner of the Snowtown Bank in SA, to a couple that live with no electricity.

I network and promote small businesses

This year I’m a finalist in the Local Business Awards for the Sutherland Shire. I’m also a member of the Sutherland Shire Business Chamber, so small, local business promotion is important to me.

I can make your business website stand out from the crowd. These days, people are looking for more than a sales jingle, they want to be informed. What benefit can they get from buying your product?

SEO Copywriting

I’ll write content for your business website that keeps them on your website and buying what you offer. Content that’s engaging and convinces them they need your service. SEO content will help your website move up the ranks organically on Google, so you can spend less on advertising.

My articles

Other than SEO copywriting for small business websites, I regularly write articles on home health for the Domain and parenting and fertility articles for Kidspot. I have also been published in Sunday Life, Women’s Health magazine and SBS Life.

I’m located in Gymea, south of Sydney on the edge of the Royal National Park. Deer regularly pass my window while I type wonderful words.
