gi sample content

What I did: I worked with Grocery Insight’s founder Steve Dresser and his web development team to conceive, design and deliver a brand new website.

1) Content strategy

I devised efficient and effective content strategy for the new website.

Grocery Insight have six distinct target markets, eight services and a number of products – all of which risked making the site unwieldy and ineffective. Everything needed unpacking and ideal user journeys defined and plotted accordingly.

I thought it advisable to first funnel users according to target market, and then offer them appropriate and tailored services on individual landing pages.

This delivered a well targeted, lean and common sense website, that works well for all visitors, regardless of their field or desired services.

2) Content delivery

I delivered original and reworked copy across the entirety of the new site, in line with the defined content strategy and existing brand voice.

Grocery Insight’s blog, subscription-only newsletter and bespoke email service are all very well established and popular, so it was vital to maintain consistency of tone of voice across all copy.

Testimonial: “I worked with Matt on a revamp of copy for my new website. I say revamp but the reality is that he grasped my business from the off with a number of well placed questions to understand the market and the objectives. The commitment on the project was evident and there were numerous requests from my end that were well dealt with, copy was reworked as appropriate and the finished piece was very impressive indeed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone requiring copywriting services. His attention to detail, professionalism and expertise in wordsmithery(!) are obvious to me as an extremely pleased client.” Steve Dresser, Founder, Grocery Insight
