Our blog-writing deal with The London Grooming Company SA

London Grooming SA product box

After our TV debut on Zaheerah Bham-Ismail’s iTrend show a few weeks ago, several awesome opportunities have presented themselves, and this week, one of these projects has successfully kicked off. We’ve written our first blog post for London Grooming Company SA, an online business which retails imported grooming products for men.

A blog-type section on any website is always a nice-to-have. It drives users to your website, helps with search engine rankings, promotes specific products while subtly persuading readers to click that ‘Buy’ button, and gives you interesting and relevant content to share with your followers on social media.

Business owner? Improve your customers’ experience to enjoy success and boost your brand

Let’s see… You’ve got a good-looking store and sought-after brands fill your shelves, but you’re having trouble drawing in foot traffic. Or maybe business is booming but customer complaints are equally high. Well, when you’re in the middle of it all – day in and day out – it’s easy to become ‘blind’ to key details and it’s difficult to see your brand, retail space, processes and staff through fresh, untainted eyes.

So the real question is: Are you brave enough to welcome honest, open and unfiltered criticism about your business?

This is where our Word Couture Co. comes in. Let us do a thorough Customer Experience evaluation Continue reading “Business owner? Improve your customers’ experience to enjoy success and boost your brand”

Our food and beverage menu mission in Abu Simbel, Egypt

One of the best ways to prove our worth as copywriters – and show the value of quality written content – is to point out a few very obvious errors in a company’s existing customer-facing communications.

During a recent trip to Egypt, we stayed at a quaint establishment in a sleepy desert town called Abu Simbel in the middle of nowhere. Despite its 4-star rating, this establishment was a step up from the other supposedly 5-star hotels and the Nile cruiser which we had to endure further north. While the premises and rooms could use a superficial facelift, staff at the Seti First Hotel in Abu Simbel were customer-centric, eager to please, and open to constructive feedback. And these positive qualities alone are an impressive WIN in our books. Continue reading “Our food and beverage menu mission in Abu Simbel, Egypt”

Understanding the protectors and protected to create the ZSS security website content

Girls can do anything, right? Well, as the boss ladies at the Word Couture Co., we’ve proven that we can certainly write about anything. We may not have a preference for roaring engines and farting exhausts nor testosterone-fuelled ‘skop, skiet and donder’ movie scenes or childhood ‘secret agent’ fantasies of leopard crawling through enemy compounds, but when the ZSS security company asked us to plan their website architecture and write the content too, we stepped right into the figurative boots of their combat personnel, and simultaneously made every effort to understand  their clients’ exact security concerns and specific needs to deliver another world-class project. Continue reading “Understanding the protectors and protected to create the ZSS security website content”

Wedding Stories – a new addition to our creative-writing services

A chick-flick inspired us to add ‘Wedding stories’ to our list of writing services. After several years of hitched living, if the honeymoon phase ever wanes or comes to an abrupt end, this precious little write-up will remind couples why they fell for each other and hopefully keep the emotions and memories of their special day flooding back.  A personalised wedding story will make for a great edition to any wedding album or simply print it on top-quality paper as a coffee table keepsake.
