Contented Clients and Websites

Over the last 15 years, I’ve worked in, and worked with clients, in very diverse fields. For my more recent project-based work, I have researched different industries and search markets enabling me to undertake optimisation, marketing and writing projects in fields such as:

  • Website design and search marketing
  • Retail, engineering and manufacturing
  • Tourism (travel and tourism guides, accommodation, attractions, activities and rental vehicles)
  • Architecture, building and construction
  • Life and business coaching, real estate and property management
  • Recruitment (e.g. health and engineering recruitment).

The Proof is in the Pudding

I’ve collated some of the comments about my optimisation, writing and editing work below:

Steph possesses a work ethic of the very highest standard … her infectious personality, friendly manner and professional conduct shone through at all times. Sharon Mahoney, Dennis Family Corporation

Search Engine Optimisation / Search Engine & Web Marketing

Dear Steph

Just a note to thank you for all your help with the recent upgrading of our website. Over the past year we have consulted various web designers in an attempt to improve our website. We’ve found it hard to understand what most of them were talking about and have felt that we’ve been swept along on a tide of ‘technical jargon’. Then, thankfully, we were introduced to you! You met with us and explained everything to us in a way that we could understand and relate to. We are more than happy to confidently recommend you to others and will happily work with you again in the future, as and when the need arises. Mary Miller and Tina Macdonald, City Centre Motel, Christchurch

Our website optimisation by Steph has lead to a significant improvement in traffic to it. The best thing was being able to talk directly with the person doing the work, it allowed us to clearly see what was happening throughout the process and have lots of direct input into it. We are now preparing for our next website development with Steph. Jeff Peters, CentrePoint on Colombo

I first met Steph through a bride/client of mine. Steph helped me with my website as I wanted to find out more about ‘search engines’, how people find me on the internet and how to increase the optimisation of my website. Steph has been a great help to me. She took the time to explain each step and made sure that I understood how and what she was doing. Steph has been so helpful, I would recommend her to anyone who needs a professional and friendly person to help with internet and search engines. Callie Sandford, Callie Sandford – Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist

Steph is amazing — she explains SEO in a way that everyone can understand, this leaves you with a total trust in her ability, which has proved well founded as our search results show. Sine Stewart, Stonehurst Accommodation, Christchurch

Writing and Editing

Steph always met copy and production deadlines, behaved professionally at all times, and worked extremely well within our team. She is bright, bubbly, and approaches everything with a smile. Sarah Sanderson, Marks & Spencers

As a technical author, Stephanie proved to be an invaluable addition to both the communications department and the company as a whole. Her creativity and flair for writing coupled with her precise attention to detail meant she produced some excellent corporate reports and company literature. Stephanie also heavily contributed to both internal and external publications, applying her professional, intelligent writing style and innovative interviewing technique. As well as writing press releases and industry articles, Stephanie was also a meticulous proofreader and copywriter, and her creative input was always to be relied upon. Emma O’Boyle, Carillion URS/ Highways Agency

“After struggling for sometime with finding the most effective wording for my Homepage it was a relief to be able to hand the project over to Steph. Her vast knowledge was reassuring, as was her easy-going nature and patience with my lack of understanding of the operations within a website! She was quick to grasp and interpret the nature of my business and produced pleasing results promptly.” Delwyn Phillips, Independent Property Finders New Zealand

We all think what you [Steph] have written is amazing…you obviously have not only a gift for writing but getting “inside” the business you are writing for and gaining a great understanding of what makes it tick. Great stuff! Mark Greening, Baches & Holiday Homes

NZTG has used the writing and editing services of Steph Kendall and found her writing very effective for search engines and she has helped increase traffic to our site… I’d recommend her. Garry Bond, New Zealand Tourism Guide

[On writing the text and optimisation strategy for Container Relocations’ new website]
Hi Steph, lets run with it as it looks great. Mark Pedersen, Container Relocations

Steph reworked my existing resume to make me sound like a bit of a star, which gave me heaps of confidence to apply in the job market again. I have since used my new look resume to help me get a job in the industry I’ve always wanted to work in. Hamish Mitchell
