So, how can Blue51 Communications help you tell your story and grow your brand with beautiful communications?
Good writing and powerful communications builds brands and grows businesses. However, writing and communications don’t come naturally to a lot of people. It’s not easy to strategically cut to the core of your messages, or to find the words to express the value you bring. My communications and writing for business services take what can be a major source of angst off your plate. I can help you to use communications so your business and your work looks as as good on the outside as it possibly can. Who knows; you may even fall in madly love with your communications! Stranger things have happened…
Are you wondering if I’m the Word Nerd for you?
Here’s the thing: as a communications specialist I don’t look at any elements of your business communications in isolation; rather I see each individual tactic and action as essential components of your business story. I’m all about the bass, about the bass, no treble- oops, I mean I’m all about clarity and alignment. My writing services support and complement your strategic communications goals and vice versa.
Fabulous communications aligns target audience, key messages
and ideal channels with the overarching aim of meeting
business vision and goals.
Does your communications
arsenal do this?
Every piece of writing that you set free into the world is an opportunity to tell your story and to grow your brand. Let’s cut through the fluff to get your key messages shining bright with some good old fashioned writerly glitter.
Events, workshops and speaking
Oh, I do love a soiree! The connections, the learning, the food; oh, the food!I also really, really love the sound of my own voice almost as much as I love sharing my hard won
Word Nerd wisdom.
The Blue51 Communications Workflow
This is how we roll:
1- We catch up for a Chit Chat to explore your communications and story wins and ills and how I could be of support.
2- I send you a proposal detailing all the Word Nerd sorcery we can do together to tell your story and grow your brand.
3- You say ‘let’s dance,’ and I may or may not literally do so. #daggymumdancing Given the nature of my work, payment is required up front for the majority of projects.
4- You complete my Brand Story Questionnaire and send me any other bits and bobs to guide my research. To help you effectively tell your story, I need to intimately know your story.
5- Depending on your package, we catch up via zoom for a 1:1 communications kick around.
6- Again, depending on your package, off I trot and write, write, write.
7- I send you a first draft of something magical in Microsoft Word. You pop on track changes and make notes and comments and request tweaks or changes. More often than not the stars align and I nail it first go, but most of my writing packages offer up to two sets of revisions. Let’s get this right!
8- Boom! Go forth and share your story!
A note on timelines:
Hmmm… This can be a tricky one, best saved for a conversation. I’m in the #blessed position of being booked out in advance with multiple projects on the go, so there could be a couple of weeks between you accepting your proposal and my commencing your project. If you do have a high urgency, tight turnaround project please reach out as I may have some wiggle room. Please note, there may be a higher cost for rapid deadline projects as they often require work outside of standard working hours.
Psst – even if you don’t quite need me just yet, you can still experience my secret sauce of Word Nerd lovin’.
Each fortnight, I send a cheery hello direct to the inboxes of people across Australia,
and more than a handful internationally.
My blog is choc-full to the brim with communications and writing hints, tips
and strategies that you can use pretty much straight away.
I’m all about action, you see. Of course, my book is also a fabulous way to access my expertise.
