Content writing and proofreading portfolio and testimonials

Torbay Physio & Hand Therapy wanted a revamp of their current site. Christina had recently taken over as director and was wanting the site to look more modern, clearly show the services they provided and make sure all information was easy to follow and up to date.

“Rachel was in charge of the professional copywriting for our company’s new website. Honestly, I was very anxious and resistant going in to the process of creating a new website, in particular, thinking about how to word things well and portray our company accurately. Then Rachel came to the rescue. She allayed my fears about the copywriting process and took the time to speak with us about what was important to us as well as sharing her knowledge and expertise about what makes a website more effective.  She was so efficient and kept us up-to-date and informed throughout her writing process. Not only was Rachel professional, but she was also personable and made me feel comfortable to ask any questions. But most importantly, Rachel really captured the essence of our company through her words. Thank you for making this process so painless and enjoyable and for us and for really understanding our needs. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.”

Matakana Watercress sells bulk watercress to the wholesale market. We created a website specifically targeting bulk buyers.

Rachel did a fantastic job for us writing the content for our website, she then showed us more magic with her skills. She enabled our website to be seen on the 1st couple of pages when entered in a search engine, instead of the 20th page. She made the whole process very easy and I would highly recommend her.

Insinc sells New Zealand’s widest range of eco-friendly and sustainable cleaning, hygiene and food packaging supplies. I write fortnightly blogs for them, promoting and discussion sustainability.

Hey Rachel, Thanks! This is a great article, it lays the options out clearly.

Woohoo, fabulous, thanks Rachel.

We have already been using some of this info for marketing.

This is great – I was just talking to someone a few days ago about the benefits of cellophane – so I’ll be able to send them the blog. I learnt stuff from it too! Excellent – thanks!

Thanks Rachel, I really like that blog post. I like that it shows the pros and cons of alternatives as well.

Brilliant Rachel, that’s exactly what we needed. It’s relative and informative and we will be able to refer to it quite a bit.

Thanks Rachel, I like this one – it is very informative, thanks.

Excellent, thanks Rachel. That will be a really useful blog to send to customers to read.

Jenni Finlayson is one of Orewa’s top real estate agents. Jenni wanted some assistance with social media marketing;  I created and updated her social medial profiles.

I am thrilled with the work Rachel did my on updating my website. In particular, my profile was out of date and required a complete make over. She listened to what I wanted to portray, made some great suggestions and then very quickly and efficiently she composed a profile that I was very happy with. 

I also felt I needed to join the Social Media sites to give further exposure to my real estate career. Once again, Rachel came up with some clever designs and concepts and was very proficient in establishing me on those networking sites. I was very pleased with her professional manner and her resourcefulness. 

I am indebted to Rachel for skilfully completing the task I couldn’t do and in a very cost-effective way. She is very cheerful and enthusiastic throughout the process.

Black Earth makes mouth-watering kasundi sauce from their own ingredients grown in the rich peat soils of Omaha. They starting selling at Matakana and we developed their site so customers could find their products all year round.

I found Rachel at Wordright very personable and easy to deal with. She had the flare to make my food product ‘taste’ good on my website with how she wrote and really encompassed everything we were about. Websites and search engines are a foreign language but Rachel was someone we could place our confidence in.

Trailblazers Northland wanted a brand new look and feel for their Northland based business. We worked with them to create a “fun” information-filled site.

Rachel was able to quickly comprehend the nature of our business using ‘speak’ that was practical yet engaging for the website browser. She explained the psychology around the written word and the need to ‘mix it up’ into everyday language. The result? A website that is vocally interesting whilst still being informative. It talks to all of our customer demographics.

Simple easy process well worth the investment.

She’s thorough, professional and reliable.
We sometimes need last-minute attention and have quirks relating to branding to be considered, but I never get the impression that anything’s a bother to Rachel – she delivers, on time and to a high standard.

Hi Rachel, What a fantastic job you have done. Thank you. I spotted two tiny mistakes…not bad for all the stuff you wrote up. Home page, second paragraph, there’s an “o” missing from most. The Shakes page, second paragraph again, there’s an “r” missing from your. I love it Rachel. I’m so happy
