Communications and marketing strategy

and freelance writing


Smart insights and a dose of inspiration

Do you need an experienced copywriter?

There’s no point putting the cart before the horse.  Marketing content works best when it’s part of a plan.  The plan needs to support your objectives and reach your audience with the right messages.

I’ve successfully managed ambitious projects with small budgets, so I know that a smart strategy can your communications budget work harder.

I can work with you to create a simple and effective communications and marketing plan to reach your target markets and get them to take action.

As a freelance writer, I can turn that plan into clear, effective copy.  No fluff, no jargon – just effective, straight-talking copy.

There are no cookie-cutters, just purposeful work designed to meet your needs.

Smart insights and a dose of inspiration – that’s how I work.

Communications and marketing – and a dose of pragmatism

After almost twenty years in communications and marketing leadership roles I took a side-step into consulting, freelance writing and teaching.

I get the best of both worlds – the opportunity to take a deep-dive into client projects, and enjoy the hustle and bustle of schools.

I’m a logical, strategic thinker with a healthy dose of pragmatism, developed in my years in government communications and marketing roles.

My background is in marketing and communications leadership roles for the State Library Victoria, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, and the Australian Chamber Choir.

Eleanor Bridger is an experienced content writer.

Here are a few of my achievements:

  • developed and implemented successful tourism marketing strategies
  • managed corporate communications programs
  • created winning submissions for tourism awards
  • managed events and launches
  • had a whole lot of fun working with awesome people on big, ambitious projects!

What are the threads that tie this all together?

  • some serious organisational and planning skills
  • a passion for research to add insights and credibility, and to inform decisions
  • a good dose of creativity, and
  • some old-fashioned word-nerd skills.

I’m an experienced freelance writer

Years of experience add up to knowing the questions to ask, the pitfalls to avoid and how to get the best results for your limited budget.

As a freelance writer, I write clear, well-crafted copy for you: white papers, case studies, articles, blogs, annual reports, social media, web copy, e-News, and speeches.

“She always delivered in smart and creative ways.”

“Successful marketing and communications depend on knowing the audience, planning the right way to reach them, and then delivering fresh and engaging content… As CEO of the Gardens at the time, I knew I could rely on Eleanor to promote our programs and activities to the media and the Victorian community – and she always delivered in smart and creative ways. She saw the bigger picture, planned ahead, kept to budgets and was timely in her media placements, whether the task was small or large – marketing an educational program, opening the major new Australian Garden at Cranbourne, or organising promotions for the Gardens’ gold-medal winning entry in the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show in London. Eleanor could do it all!”
