greg knowles - writer

I am a freelance writer based in Auckland, New Zealand. The power of the Internet means that I can work internationally. I work in English only.

I specialise in all types of web content writing and media writing. In particular;
  • Website content writing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
  • Articles
  • Newsletters
  • Editing and Proofing
  • Technical Writing
  • Technical Manuals - writing and research
  • Company Brochures
  • Copywriting
My extensive background in business management and communication means that I understand what you and your business want to achieve and how you can achieve it.

Before turning my attention to writing fulltime I worked in both the social sector and business sector.

My experience in the business sector involved company management, sales and marketing, technical manual research and writing, newsletter and article writing, and brochure and product creation.

Within the social sector my experience includes a wide variety of both written and oral communication,

a testimonial: Word Gurus Ltd

"Word Gurus has worked with Greg Knowles on several copywriting projects and can happily recommend him as an excellent writer.

case study: FORTIfi financial solutions

The power of online articles and newsletters
For a number of years I have been researching and writing the monthly e-newsletter for FORTIfi Financial Solutions. The newsletter articles are then transferred to their website Resource Centre for future reference.

The newsletters are well-received and form a vital part of the support FORTIfi offers to their 2,000+ clients.

The added content on their website adds significantly to their Google Ranking.  The FORTIfi Financial Solutions website draws almost 1,000 visits a month from people visiting their Resource Centre articles.

For newsletters and articles that get results, contact me.

case study: the pink bins hire and recycling company

The power of having your website proof-read and edited.
A web designer had done a good job on the design of The Pink Bins Company's website but the folk at Pink Bins weren't getting the number of website enquiries they'd hoped for.

I spent twenty hours redesigning, rewriting, and adding content to their site and the results were;
  • a 355% increase in enquiries via the website
  • a move from 69th in the Google rankings to 2nd
  • a LOT more work for the people at Pink Bins

If you'd like to improve the content on your current website, contact me.

What Pink Bins had to say:

Greg has been upgrading and maintaining our website for the last six months.
We have been, and continue to be, more than happy with his efforts and the results he has created for us. Greg has anticipated and exceeded our expectations in all matters relating to our site. He has continuously improved our website and therefore the amount of traffic and enquiries we receive.
We would be more than happy to recommend him for any future projects.

We find Greg easy to talk to and he communicates well with those of us whose IT knowledge is minimal.
Sue Stuart - Director, The Pink Bins Hire and Recycling Company Ltd.

NOTE: Pink Bins recently employed an in-house IT person to manage their IT needs. That person has taken over their website. While much of the content was written by me the website has been redesigned.
