Helping Northlanders with their writing needs – update on May 2018 work

May brought some new challenges and a few old reliable tasks in terms of how I help small business owners in the Whangarei/Northland/north Auckland area with their content writing needs.

Jobs I worked on with clients included:

  • Helping a practitioner of alternative therapy to raise awareness of her work by putting out a media release tying in with current concerns over meth drug addiction in Northland
  • I helped a small business write five new web pages, with a focus on getting the keywords right to help with SEO discoverability (don’t forget to tell readers who you are, where you are and what services you offer!)
  • I sold a number of copies of my last short story collection, Lowlife – so that’s sold out again (I had to get Unity Books to give back some unsold copies so I could sell them to people who actually want them)
  • I sold a few copies of Moneyland after a May creative writing workshop in Snells Beach
  • I’m getting lots of interest in the writing services I offer authors, due to an advert I placed in the NZ Society of Authors newsletter. So there is a bit of interest in writers receiving help to tell the world who they are and what they are offering, via Createspace, Bookfunnel, Smashwords, Amazon, Goodreads, Medium.com and more
  • I wrote a lot of columns about property, real estate and home renovation for one of my favourite clients
  • Some updates on a website for a large high school
  • Blogs about renovations and repairs to maritime vessel
