HI! I’m Amanda Bacchi, your friendly neighbourhood Brisbane librarian, and SEO copywriting specialist behind Anything But Boring Copywriting!
I’m not boring! It has been an interesting few decades for me, hosting TV, radio, podcasts, and moderating for conventions across Australia. I have been a writer, researcher, interviewer, copywriter, editor, public relations specialist, events manager, content creator, script and comic book writer, and librarian. Pheww!!
I have always had a natural affinity for words and have been an avid writer since high school. I have learned through life and my Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations, Journalism, & Media Studies that in business and art, we use words and stories to inspire, educate, and inform, or to ultimately convert or convince, to call our audience to action.
As your local SEO Brisbane copywriter, my first priority is to amplify your voice and your brand, using not only words, but also a range of analytical tools to ensure that not only Google sees you, but your audience does as well, driving traffic to your business leading to sales and repeat business. I have a great understanding of written communication and the ability to craft clear and effective messages. Some specific skills and knowledge that I have include:
- Excellent writing skills: I can write in a variety of styles and formats, and should be able to create engaging and effective content that meets the needs of the client and their audience.
- Knowledge of grammar and punctuation: I have a strong grasp of grammar and punctuation rules, and can produce error-free content.
- Familiarity with different writing styles: I adapt my writing style to fit the specific needs of a project, and am able to write in a variety of styles, including formal, informal, and conversational.
- Knowledge of SEO: I understand search engine optimization (SEO) and how to incorporate keywords and other strategies into my writing to improve the visibility of a website or other online content. However, this is an area in which I am still learning.
- Research skills: I can conduct extensive research to gather information for a project, and have the ability to find and evaluate sources to ensure that the content I produce is accurate and relevant.
- Collaboration skills: I like to work with other members of a team, such as designers or marketing professionals, and have good communication and collaboration skills.
A little more about me….?
