Content Writer Extraordinaire provides the full range of the highest quality writing services for business including blog posts, articles, website content, SEO copy, proof reading and editing

“Many businesses start blogs with the intention of updating them on a regular basis,” says Ellie. “But the reality is, after a few weeks, updating it falls to the bottom of the to-do list as other commitments within the business take priority. By outsourcing their content writing to me, I can provide them with quality articles for their blog or news page so that they can get on with everything else they need to do within the business.

All it takes is a quick chat to agree on the topic of the article and a brief outline of what the client wants to get across, and I do the rest. Once it’s written, my client can have a read to decide that they are happy, and possibly make recommendations about anything they’d like to add or tweak. It’s a simple process for them, giving them time to run their business without the stress and commitment of knowing they have to sit down and write this week’s blog article.”

Ellie also specialises in search engine optimised copy for the web, which can have a dramatic effect on the ranking of your website or blog in the search engine results. And it’s not just blogs and websites that Ellie writes for; she frequently puts together newsletters and press releases, and also provides a proofreading and editing services.
