What’s Been Your Best Memory Since Starting At Embryo?

What Advice Do You Have For Content Writers Just Starting Out?

‘’I’d recommend finding any and every opportunity to write as much as you can. Like anything else, writing takes work and the more you write, the more tricks you’ll add to your sleeve. Also, start taking note of the copy you see in advertising. There’s a lot out there that you can learn from.’’

I’ve done lots of work for aesthetics clients, writing long-form pages for websites and getting really in-depth about different treatments and how they work.’’

Why Do You Like Working In Content?

What Have You Learnt Since You Started Here, And What Has Been The Most Useful Lesson?

‘’I’ve certainly learnt a lot the past 19 months, especially with all of the great training sessions we’re given. I’ve learnt better ways of writing for SEO. I’ve learnt about various industries and how to engage with their audiences. I’ve learnt how to be a manager and how to deal with the various situations that that entails. I feel like I’m always learning, and that’s always a good thing.’’

What Has Been Your Favourite Client To Work On Since You Started Working Here, Why, And What Have You Done For Them?

‘’That’s a tough choice, because, genuinely – there have been, and are, a lot of great ones. If I had to pick, I’d say our psychic-based client, because not only are they lovely and always happy to help with information requests, but it’s given me the opportunity to deep-dive into an industry I didn’t know an awful lot about, but have come to find extremely fascinating. So far, I’ve written blog posts, website content and a 20,000 word piece on the history of psychics – did you know that countries including Egypt, China, North Africa and India all claim to be the birthplace of the Tarot cards?’’

Why Do You Like Working In Content?

‘’I like every aspect of it. I like creating research-based strategy documents that include recommendations. I like talking to, and meeting with clients to discuss their business, and ideas for content. I like writing content, and seeing it go online to help convert potential clients. There’s so much to like and I feel lucky to like what I do.’’

When you’re finally given your first job, go at it with full force – show every client how valuable you are, show your team why they need you and never stop developing your technique. Read lots.
