Marketing Services for Southend-on-Sea & Beyond

Hi! Francesca Astraea here. I’m a writer founder of the Do Something Directory. I’m not really on social media anymore, so here’s where you can get hold of me!

I offer a variety of marketing consultancy services. Please email if you are interested in hiring me. I am fully insured.

Social Media Marketing for Business Workshops

I regularly hold social media marketing workshops, teaching sole traders and small business owners how to plan, create and curate content for their social media channels.

My most popular course is a 3 week interactive workshop, each session lasting approximately two and a half hours. We cover different aspects of social media marketing each week, including the rule of thirds, content curation and best practise. Attendees are  set ‘homework’ each week, in order to build skills. Each session is kept at no more than 6 people, so attendees feel comfortable asking questions. Please click here for a full itinerary.

Proofreading for Websites, Signage, Menus and More

We’ve all seen embarrassing typos, especially on restaurant menus and signage in countries where English is not the main language… typos are pretty common in the UK, too! I will read your business signage, menus, business cards and websites, and highlight any errors or instances where English could be made clearer. I will suggest improvements or replacements.

Website Critiques

I will critique your website with a fresh pair of eyes. I highlight grammatical and linguistic errors as well as any areas of text or imagery that don’t make sense to the consumer. I also critique your website’s Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), pointing out any issues with titles, layout, URLs or menu layout.

One-on-One Marketing Consultancy

I offer one-on-one sessions to go through your business’s social media marketing channels, review your strategy and suggest improvements. We can then work together to implement changes, meeting or Skype calling on a weekly or monthly basis as you require.

Facebook and Twitter Posts

I will write 30x Facebook posts for your Facebook or Twitter accounts. My posts will inject enthusiasm, professionalism and fun into your social media channels! You will receive:

  • Approx. 10x direct promotion of your business (including any special offers, contests etc) linking to your website or a specific webpage or blog
  • Approx. 10x industry-specific posts (news and magazine articles about your industry, general content that your target audience will like and that will improve your brand’s legitimacy)
  • Approx. 10x fun, curated content suitable for your target audience (quotes, videos, magazine/news articles to add authenticity to your social media channels)

You can copy-and-paste the posts directly from the Word Document I will supply, onto your Facebook page, TweetDeck, HootSuite or Buffer. If you have any specific photos/images you would like me to share for the promotional posts, send me them and I will write posts to suit the image. Facebook and Buffer will allow you to embed images from any articles or webpages when you post, so a stock image or one of your own images is not required for all 30 posts, but if relevant I will source free stock images from Unsplash or Pixabay to add to posts, which will help catch the reader’s eye.

30 posts can mean 1 per day for a month or 2 per day for a fortnight – it’s up to you!

Posts will be supplied in a Word Document.
