“I asked Lindsay to help revamp our UK VA Network website content. The main objective was to take “corporate/third party” text and make it warm and personable.

From the outset Lindsay’s enthusiasm for the project was clear and very infectious! Lindsay spent quality time in finding out my intentions for the network and through only a couple of meetings and emails really grasped what I was looking for. Upon reading the copy that Lindsay sent to me, I took to Twitter to say “I have butterflies in my stomach….”, Lindsay had captured exactly what was in my head.

I would highly recommend Lindsay for her professional diligence, the project was delivered on time and within budget. More importantly if you wish to work with someone who takes their time to get to know you and your company; to provide you with enthusiasm for the project at hand and also to go above and beyond in suggesting other fantastic ideas for promoting your business through the power of words – Lindsay McLoughlin is the lady to have on board!”  Jill McLachlan, JMVA, Virtual Assistant

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Lindsay during the planning stages for my new business Worthy Conclusions. Due to the nature of Worthy Conclusions’ target market (the recently bereaved), the web content not only needed to be succinct about our offering but also sensitive to the emotions of people who would be reading it.

Lindsay listened to the brief, offered some imaginative ideas which we implemented and then provided excellent copy for use on the website and supporting materials. Lindsay is excellent at what she does and is such fun to work with, we already have a date in the diary for our next project!” Lin Worthy, Worthy Conclusions


“Lindsay is the copywriter for features on the Best of Henley and also writes a monthly blog for us. When writing features Lindsay is efficient and can produce well written copy often from little detail. Lindsay’s blogs allow her to be more creative and they are always well received getting great traffic to our website. We enjoy working with her very much.” Gill Chappell, The Best of Henley

“I had been planning to write a newsletter for quite some time, but I always stumbled over the wording. Meeting Lindsay was brilliant. She instantly understood what I wanted to say, and has now written two newsletters for me. She has also written some copy for a local estate agent. I can now recommend her to my clients with complete confidence”. Alix Horne, Graphic Designer, Amax Designs

Lindsay was able to get to the very heart of the business, understood what was involved in the creative process and identified from the outset what made me and the company tick.
