So many business owners think their marketing has to be boring. They think, ‘I’m serious about my business, so my business needs to be serious.”
But the truth is, people don’t buy goods or hire service-folk who bore them to death. They want the hairdresser that makes them laugh, the carpenter who arrives on time and the dog walker who’ll give them a hug when their pooch is looking poorly. Boring doesn’t get you clients and sales - quality products, exceptional service and a business with heart and personality will.
I’m Steff, a marketing copywriter, and I’m here to help your small business succeed. I believe that just because you offer quality products, top-notch service, and stay on the straight-and-narrow, doesn’t mean your copy must be dry and uninteresting. I bring my years of marketing experience to help you:
- Stop wasting money on marketing that doesn’t work.
- Get better results with your marketing with a smaller investment of time and money.
- Figure out which projects to focus on to bring the greatest result.
- Create a compelling web presence with high-conversion pages.
- Implement new strategies to retain old customers and and bring in fresh faces.
- Create a lasting relationship with your clients.
- Arm yourself with knowledge to make informed decisions about the future of your business.
- Take the stress out of your marketing and show you that it can even be fun.
What is Grymm & Epic Business?
I know what you’re thinking – if she’s so serious about helping my business, why is her website called ‘Grymm & Epic’, and not ‘Writing Solutions for Small Businesses’ or something?
Grymm & Epic is all about finding your inner marketing god (or goddess), your business bad-ass, your conversion champion … you get the idea. A Grymm & Epic businessperson is someone who is not afraid to step away from what is normal and expected and try something different with their business marketing.
I work with Grymm & Epic businesses across all industries to create and implement bad-ass marketing strategies. I understand how confusing the world of marketing might seem, and it can be difficult to know where to begin, and what will bring the best results. I’m here to help focus your attention on campaigns and techniques that will work for your business. I’ll write website copy that titillate, press releases that shock and newsletters that cause people to snort coffee through their noses. Whatever your industry, I’ll work with you to create and implement a marketing plan that will keep your customers hooked.
I know you don’t have a huge budget – you don’t need a head-to-toe marketing makeover or a two-hour lecture on the proper use of the semi-colon – you just need a sales page that doesn’t suck. That’s why I offer simple, cost-effective writing and marketing consultation services – all the work you need for a price you can afford. I focus on customer conversion and retention, giving you immediate, measurable results from your marketing efforts. If you want to learn more about my writing services, check out the hire me page and read about my Grymm & Epic copywriting packages. Contact me with any questions, comments or band suggestions.
As an illustrator, I create bright, fun drawings and paintings that delight children and adults alike. My unique, whimsical style will suit many brands, editorial needs, children’s books and products, and custom commissions. See the gallery for examples of my work, and contact me to talk about your project.
I also write a Grymm & Epic Business Blog about the ups-and-downs of small business life, and a free FREE creative business newsletter. While there is no shortage of blogs and websites dedicated to small businesses, there IS a shortage of blogs and websites with honest, down-to-earth, no-bull advice for the current market. I aim to change that. It’s not always going to be pretty, but it’s going to be epic.
Steff is a legally-blind copywriter and illustrator living in New Zealand with her cantankerous drummer husband and their medieval sword collection. I created Grymm & Epic Copywriting in 2010 to help bad-ass small businesses get their marketing message across – without blowing their budget. With over eight years copywriting experience and an intimate knowledge of content marketing methods, I’m passionate about using words to help businesses convert leads into sales and retain loyal customers. Whether you’re alternative or mainstream, service or sales, Mompreneur or Fortune 500, I’d love to work with you to hone your marketing strategy. About pages, ghost blogging, press releases, one pages, band bios, book cover blurbs, sales pages, product descriptions, website copy and SEO articles – I’ve done it all, and all for small, unique, creative companies just like yours.
