Offer for Central West NSW businesses:

What you can get for buying me a chai latte cup of tea!

You work hard enough on your business.

In fact, you’ve got a great story or two to tell about your business journey.

Here’s a way to get your stories and news out there, build customer engagement plus earn yourself more free time.

You see, right here in Central West NSW, there’s an experienced writer ready to work with you.
(That’s me – Margaret Paton!). I’ll listen to you talk about your business, how you want your content to work for you. I’ll then do a content audit to identify the gaps and how to move forward – you’ll get that in a two-page report.

Importantly, there’s no obligation to take me up on my services.

Because I’ve worked extensively in journalism, events and communications (for three decades), you’ll be able to tap into my wide network of local, regional and national contacts to boost your business, too.

So, what you’ll get for buying me that $5 cuppa:

  • A face-to- face one-hour session at your premises (or a café) to chat to an award-winning writer about your business and goals
  • A follow-up two-page report outlining how words can supercharge your business
  • What’s more, you’ll have another local contact who knows about your business

Contact Margaret now to take up this offer before 15 August, 2017.

Feeling somewhat blessed that I can nudge casual teaching off my work week and dive into such a diversity of writing. I'm writing blogs on early childhood (photography, STEM), payment gateways, Australianising a Chinese company's website, finessing a media release about the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, crafting an article about inquiry learning for a national ed mag, about to quiz a financial advisor for another story, debriefing on a recent teaching stint by writing about how private schools penalise teachers who don't organise enough events in their free time (hmmmm) and writing a position paper about why a national STEM program in high schools needs bi-partisan reports. And I got my Jack Russell dog on my lap while I'm writing. Couldn't be better! Best wishes to everyone out there that your working week is just as varied and interesting and well paid! ...
