Content Creation and Strategy

Milo McLaughlin: Content Creation & Strategy

Do you need a better plan for getting your message out to the world?

Or a regular supply of fresh, engaging articles, blog posts or other content for your website? 

I can help.

As a copywriter and content creator I produce high quality articles and other written content for businesses and online publishers on a regular basis.

And as a content strategist I help values-based businesses create simple and sustainable plans of action to help spread the word about their products and services. I also offer digital marketing services such as email marketing, social media strategy and project management.

I pride myself on having extremely high standards, not only in terms of the quality of my work but also when it comes to meeting deadlines and communicating with clients. For that reason, I only take on new work if I’m sure I can achieve those standards in the time available.

If you’d like to know more, I’d be happy to have a quick chat with you either via email or Skype. You can email me at: milo [at] clearmindedcreative [dot] com. Alternatively, you can use the form on my contact page.

jana profile picI loved working with Milo! At a critical phase of a new business, he produced high quality website copy, blog posts and email newsletter content quickly and professionally, in such an independent and experienced manner that created a lot of trust in him as a member of our team. He also brought along strategic advice and hands on support in other ways, beyond the initial brief and I’d absolutely work with him again!”

Patrick Jordan Headshot for GooglePlus“Milo is an excellent and creative writer. He did a great job on the copywriting of a set of promotional items for my iPad Insight site, and also contributed some quality guest posts to the iSource site when I served as editor-in-chief there. He is very strong on understanding a brief and delivering great copy. He’s a pleasure to work with and I certainly plan to work with him more in future.”
