Welcome to the Rich Bilingual Content monthly news round-up. September marks the transition here from an intensely busy Summer period to the arrival of a more wild and sparse Autumn. It’s when we stop to catch our breath a moment before going again with renewed vigour.
Magazine adverts: planning, text, photography, design
My work with Predn Surf Co is steadily growing in scope and volume. Having been asked to present their sustainable surfboard making company in Cornwall Living magazine back in June, I’m now helping them plan out their monthly advertising campaign for the magazine… and producing copy, photos and design for each ad.
Planning a website
What’s more, Predn Surf Co have asked me for help with their website! So, I’ve been planning it out step by step, drafting a company mission statement, brand guidelines and customer profiles, all with their input and validation. Before I can dive into the back office of their site and bring their vision online, I have keyword research still to do. I look forward to getting to grips with Shopify and being able to share the outcome with you!
Proofreading scientific marketing documents
With the solid-state battery market about to take off, intellectual property specialists Knowmade have produced a flyer to advertise their dedicated patent monitoring service. A quick proofread was all that was needed to ensure their message was perfectly presented to their target B2B audience. Likewise their latest press release concerning a high-flying entrant into the silicon carbide device market.
More partnerships and a Partners section
Having announced a strategic partnership with Boost last month, Rich Bilingual Content cut the ribbon on a new partnership in September!
Vendonsenligne.fr (which translates to “let’s sell online .com”) creates bespoke websites for businesses on the French Riviera, from shopfront sites to online stores and hospitality booking engines. This new partnership positions Rich Bilingual Content as the English language professional of choice for their clients’ web copy and content.
Finally, I’m in the process of adding a Partners section to my website, to showcase these companies alongside long-standing partner Sequoiasoft, whose web design agency offers websites incorporating their booking software solutions for campsites, hotels, restaurants and spas.
Partnerships will always make sense because, well, “It’s better together!”
People & Planet
With the holidays now over, many activities that traditionally take a break for the summer are now back in full swing. As such, I’m back coaching Gaelic football and pushing the digital comms for local club St Pirans GAA. I’ve also returned to surf mentoring for the Wave Project surf club in Newquay.
Finally, I’ve been assisting in promoting the Art for the Earth project by producing flyers and social media posts. The project is building towards an exciting auction and exhibition in November. I’ve been blown away by the artists’ interpretations of my storm photo and am hopeful they will generate some funds to donate to WWF UK, which is what the project is all about! I’m also extremely proud that my photo will be exhibited in PricewaterhouseCoopers offices all around the UK – including Glasgow, in time for this year’s UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).
To mark the end of Summer and my first year back in the UK, I gave myself a week’s holiday. And when you live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, you really don’t have to go far – so I spent a few days photographing St Ives, just round the corner from where the G7 summit took place earlier this year. This, sandwiched between some amazing moments with family and friends, made for a lovely break. I now feel refreshed and ready to help clients old and new communicate with their target audiences.
