Content marketing

Everyone knows about the Hubspot method of inbound content marketing. There's also a powerful argument for a lower volume, more targeted form of content marketing that takes your core messaging and customers' language and builds this into a sustainable strategy.


Conversion rate optimisation

Conversion rate optimization gets you the clicks, sign-ups or downloads that you want to see. I will help you to find the right customers for your business by showing you how to optimize on-site surveys, user testing and calls to action.


Copywriting

I'll help you to write copy that creates messaging that your prospects love and converts them to customers. Copy like this follows a three step process: - Research and Discovery - Writing, wireframing and editing - Testing and validation I’ll show you how to find your voice, define your message and use the language of your customers and prospects.

I came in with an idea, and Sarah just blew me away with a better way to test my value props. I'm so glad I consulted this with her because I can see how I was totally on a different track. She might've saved me a lot of work and money in experiments 🤣🙈 As usual, a pleasure to talk to her. She always goes the extra mile and gives me resources, articles, and extra support over chat. Can't thank you enough, Sarah! Always 💯

Sarah listened deeply and was able to help with my specific issues. She 100% had a resource and and examples for every one of my questions. Obviously inside of a 30 minute session we did not solve all of the world problems, but I left the meeting feeling well equipped for what comes next. We reviewed content, talked pricing strategy, talked content method and strategy. I will implement what she gave me and then book another meeting in the near future.

Sarah is a fantastic copywriter that kept me focused on what my users are asking and saying about my product! But she also helped me in so many other ways! We spoke about pricing strategies where she provided an insightful resource. We went over different sections of my website and how they could be improved. She's a very considerate person. Taking the time to think before she answers. Listens carefully and is very open-minded to help you solve problems no matter the challenge.

Sarah gave me very precise feedback on my email newsletter. She clearly articulated what's good (tone, personality, engagement) and what needs improvement (potentially split newsletter into 2, add more images/GIFs and use copywriting formulae to make the writing tighter.) She also shared an extremely valuable resource on newsletters. Highly highly recommend chatting with Sarah, she's so quick on her feet! And encouraging 😊

I walked away from Sarah's call with sooo much more confidence in my skills, and clarity on next steps. She was very helpful, boosted my confidence, and generous sharing some of her best resources to help me along on my project. She also gave me advice on pricing, packaging and presenting my writing services, which is soooo helpful for a new copywriter. Thank you Sarah!

I love chatting with Sarah. You can tell that she's truly vested in helping her mentees. She kindly accepted to read my content to give me specific feedback, and even after the call, I get messages from her with additional resources for me to keep learning. She also connected me with another colleague to get in-depth with another thing I was concerned about. I also love that she's so understanding and warm with her suggestions. I really feel so comfortable and guided. She's just what I needed! Again, thank you so much Sarah for going the extra mile with me. I feel much more confident with my work now :)

Good talk on content, but Sarah rightly pointed us back to a step earlier to start, namely getting our brand messaging on point. She provided valuable tips on who to contact and what we would need.

Sarah understood instantly what my problems were. I liked that we went straight to the point and she gave me actionable advice on how to track the success of my content in a cold outreach campaign. Our communication was very effective and easy to digest. Everything she said sounded very down-to-Earth, absolutely no fluff or buzz words! She also proposed a follow-up so we could analyze the results of my project later. On top of that, she kindly agreed to take a look at my portfolio and read some of my work to offer suggestions for improvements and point me in the right direction on how to get better at writing. Thank you so much, Sarah!

My first session with Sarah was brief because I'd booked a shorter call with Sarah and a client call got booked right after it. Still, my call with Sarah was immensely helpful. I am struggling to productize my services, and Sarah pointed me to some exceptionally helpful resources, and gave me some insight into some minimum viable productized services that I can offer to clients.

If you are trying to increase your prices as a copywriter, I would highly recommend a call with Sarah! Sarah helped me define who my ideal client is, and opened my eyes to what I SHOULD be charging. Sarah is an excellent listener and an incredible coach. We are truly blessed to have her here on GrowthMentor! I have applied to do monthly coaching with her, and I'm excited to (hopefully) be receiving coaching from her on a regular basis.
