About Me

A Copywriter With Sales and Marketing Experience

I am a Calgary-based copywriter and communications consultant at Wishart Cape Communications, where I help small businesses, especially those in real estate, connect with their customers. To get away from my desk from time-to-time I am also a seasoned event planner.

I have enjoyed an eclectic 25+ year career that has provided a variety of experiences from politics to real estate. From public relations and advertising to marketing and sales. It’s that generalist mix, having worked on both the account service and creative sides at agencies, as well as in the corporate world, that serves me well now that I have dedicated my work to the role I love most, copywriting.

Why copywriting for small business?

It was while I worked as a client rep for a real estate referral company that I realized there was a need for copywriters for small businesses. We use our smartphones and digital devices to look for businesses now, not the telephone book, yet time and again I came across websites that not only looked awful but were difficult to navigate. I knew my background writing copy could help.

According to Google research, your website has only 6 seconds to get a readers attention. Whether you are a real estate agent, home inspector or plumber it’s critical that your website is offering the information readers are looking for. Prospects don’t want to wade through copy, they want answers. Quickly. As a copywriter, I create the content prospects are looking for and optimize clients websites so their content will be found.

Most recently I received a certificate in Digital Communications from Mount Royal University. We live in a digital world and I wanted to better serve my clients with expertise in web content and social media curation, and web analytics.

If you’ve been sitting at your desk trying to think of new ways to attract more business or your Google analytics is showing you that no one is reading your website, I can help. When it comes to getting out your message, I can refine your content from uh? to Aha!

There is more to life than writing

I have organized awesome events too. After all, brands need to meet customers face-to-face now and then. I’ve run gala’s, corporate events, grand openings, product launches, golf tournaments, political campaigns and, because I’m Calgary based, Stampede barbecues.

If you’ve compared your marketing material to your competitors and found there is something lacking, why wait any longer? Contact me and I’ll create content that will convert leads into customers.
