Trendy Bambino – Website Marketing

Trendy Bambino was looking for copy that would showcase her unique site featuring trendy, fun and affordable clothing for kids.

Her catalog features cool clothing and accessories for kids that allow them to stand out in style, so I knew that I wanted to really play up the fashionista angle!

Here are a few samples of website content and the Trendy Bambino “About Us” copy I wrote.


ABOUT US

Lights, Camera, Fashion!

Trendy Bambino is a specially curated collection of affordable couture for kids. Your little one will be itching to “cat-walk”, toddle or crawl to every play date or family function in the stand-out fashions offered from this Toronto-based company.

What began as owner Candice Pirali’s own belief that the modern infant deserves to show off their style (even if they don’t know their binky from their blankie yet) has grown to a thriving, one-stop shop for unique fashions.

The Trendy Bambino approach to business offers the personal approach of an independent boutique with a carefully selected catalog and a convenient pick-up service for local shoppers. By sourcing items according to customer requests, Trendy Bambino also acts as a personal shopper of sorts, creating an extraordinary relationship with shoppers instead of simply selling to them.

Sugar Fire Jewellery – Company Profile

When the owner of Sugar Fire Jewellery came to me, she was looking not only for product descriptions to organize her budding business, she also wanted a revamp on her Company Profile to reflect her growing business and to spice up the catalog she was preparing for potential wholesale accounts.

About Sugar Fire Jewellery

Capturing the vitality of nature in layers of shimmering glass, Sugar Fire Jewellery’s line of artful adornment is infused with magic and the skillful designs of Erin McLachlan.

Named for the process by which layers of powdered glass are fired and melted onto metal at 1500°F, Sugar Fire Jewellery’s dazzling pieces paint a picture of the fanciful world around us.

Employing these traditional enameling techniques by fusing the powdered glass onto copper, Erin’s process creates sparkling sugar-like granules that, when cooled, Erin transforms into unique jewellery radiating with bright hues and modern patterns.

With her Nature, Retro, Mod, Classic lines, Erin enhances basic shapes and motifs to create pieces that celebrate the wonder of nature, capturing the awe-inspiring artistry of the natural world and illustrating its beauty through color, pattern and the brilliant glint of glass.

About the Designer

Working as an ecologist at an engineering firm, Toronto designer Erin McLachlan desired a more creative outlet to counterbalance the scientific nature of her work.

Yet, by combining the science of enameling with her creative flair, Erin is able to fuse these two sides of her life together, resulting in a signature style that is skillfully imaginative.

Inspired by the beauty of nature, Erin infuses many pieces with natural motifs that help to remind people of the beauty in nature and enables them to feel a closer connection with the environment.

“I like to think that people can wear these pieces and they can serve as a daily reminder of how beautiful and worthy of respect our planet really is.”

Each handcrafted piece reveals Erin’s love of creating and reflects not only her creative spirit, but also mirrors back the uniqueness and inner glow of each individual wearer, allowing every one to truly dazzle.

Adorabelle Pettiskirts – Product Copy

I worked with Adorabelle Pettiskirts on a variety of their sweet pettiskirts. When owner Candice had a website redesign done, she wanted to refresh her copy.

It was a challenge to come up with so many different product descriptions, since the difference between some of the designs was simply the size (one for newborns, another for toddlers).

bBut I feel I captured the essence of her brand, and managed to craft copy that would entice Mom’s to treat their daughters to the unique designs Adorabelle had to offer!
Here are a few samples of what I came up with!

The Organic Backyard – Website Marketing

The Organic Backyard came to me looking for fresh content for their new venture.

I knew this would be a fun project to work on, because I would be able to play on the gardening/growing aspect and tie it back to the site launch.

I put together some content for the splash page and the various info pages, which showed the step-by-step approach for potential customers.


INDEX PAGE

Whether you’re a newbie or a novice when it comes to gardening, you can enjoy the benefits of an organic lifestyle, no matter how green your thumb is.

It doesn’t get more local than produce grown in your own vegetable patch. Joe will show you how easy it is to deliver fresh organic produce straight from your own private backyard farm directly to your family’s kitchen table.

If your goal is to shop locally while maintaining a more organic lifestyle, let The Organic Backyard show you, in four easy steps, how you can grow enough fresh veggies to feed your entire family.

 

ABOUT

With an enthusiasm for gardening firmly planted within Joe as far back as childhood, it wasn’t long before this budding farmer’s passion began to thrive.

By enthusiastically cultivating these first seeds of inspiration, and combining this drive with his passion for organic gardening, Joe is now flexing his green thumb in an exciting and innovative way that benefits the community at large.

With a degree in Plant Biology and a Landscape Design Certificate, Joe is a first-class resource, ready to teach your family the benefits of owning your own organic farm.

Utilizing his knowledge of plants, soil science, and organic growing methods, Farmer Joe’s customized four-step approach to creating, implementing, maintaining and enjoying an organic lifestyle will have you harvesting your own crop of healthful produce – right from your own backyard.

 

PLAN

It takes more than seeds and soil to make your garden grow, and Farmer Joe has a personalized plan built exclusively to suit your individual tastes.

Whether you’ve got a plot of land or just a patch, Joe will schedule a personal consultation to survey your space and suggest the best sunlit place to plant your produce. After picking the spot, and arming himself with a comprehensive list of your family’s needs, your favorite veggies, and what will grow best in your area, Joe will put your new organic plan into action.

Ready for Step Two? After laying the groundwork for your new organic lifestyle, let Farmer Joe BUILD the bountiful backyard garden you’ve been dreaming of.

 

BUILD

Now that Farmer Joe has laid the groundwork for your future backyard garden, it’s time to start building it.

By constructing one or more weather-resistant, raised cedar beds, which can last from 15 to 20 years, Joe’s construction offers optimum drainage, a natural barrier to pests, and will give your garden a first-rate foundation from which to flourish.

Using compost-rich soils and organic fertilizers, which are included in the cost of setting up your beds, your garden will begin to develop in nutrient-rich soil that is equal to that of years spent working and preparing the soil for growing.

Ready for Step Three? You’ve sown the seeds of your own backyard farm – now it’s time to watch them GROW!

 

GROW

Not ready to get elbow-deep in dirt? Let Farmer Joe tend to your crops and bring the bounty of nature straight to your table in a basket ripe for the picking!

With weekly visits to weed, prune, plant and maintain your backyard farm, Joe will utilize his horticultural background to ensure that your crop will be wholesome and plentiful.

Throughout the growing season, Joe will also provide his support to you through reminder e-mails, tips and answers to your personal gardening questions, so you can learn how to care for and cultivate the best from your backyard farm.

Ready for Step Four? Now that all the hard work is done, it’s time to sit back and ENJOY the fruits of your (and Joe’s!) labor.

 

ENJOY

It doesn’t get more local than growing produce in your own backyard farm. With a plentiful basket of ripe vegetables to enjoy, your family can rest assured, knowing exactly where your food comes from.

Instead of driving to the local market, your family can feel a sense of pride in generating your own source of fresh, organic produce. And best of all, your efforts will reduce your impact on the environment by both growing local, pesticide-free vegetables and supporting Farmer Joe’s exciting new concept in the organic food movement.

Nothing is more important than the health of your family. With Joe’s friendly and informed guidance, your own passion for homegrown organic vegetables will develop into a zest for life and nature that will benefit your family and your community.

Botanical Earth – Business Essentials

Company Profile prepared for Botanical Earth

Debra Hendron began her apprenticeship as a soap maker at the ripe old age of eight.  Barely nose-high to the kitchen countertop, experimenting with her first batch of herbal soap was merely a stepping-stone for Debra on her path towards keeping a family tradition alive.

With her grandmother a soap maker, and her mother an herbalist, it seems only natural that Debra would inherit their green thumbs.  But by taking what she learned from her family matriarchs and instilling her own fertile creativity, Debra’s inspired formulations through her natural body care company Botanical Earth are completely transforming the face of organic bath products.

With a passion for reinventing traditional recipes, Debra is not afraid to plunge elbow-deep into the muck and mud if it results in a product that is both beneficial and beautifying for her clients.  Botanical Earth’s full roster of 100% vegan soaps, balms and salves, as well as pet care items and products for the home, benefits the consumer while remaining mindful of its effect on the environment.

By recreating historic & vintage recipes and making them new with exotic scents, curative plants and therapeutic herbs & spices she discovered during trips to the Middle East during her teenage years, Debra is creating a new generation of botanical body care products that showcases the best of both the past and the future of organic formulation.

Like her mother and her grandmother before her, Botanical Earth is writing its own page in the book of the organic bath product marketplace.  By relying on time-honored tradition and inventive formulas, Botanical Earth keeps clients, some of them the same people her grandmother provided soap to, coming back for more.

When it comes to creating innovatively indulgent products that promote sustainability, organic soap maker Debra Hendron has her feet planted solidly on terra firma.

 

The Future of Botanical Earth

In a true display of the entrepreneurial spirit, Debra has plans to launch a new venture in 2007 in which to share her lifelong knowledge of growing organic botanicals.  MoHerbs will encompass all facets of running an herbal products business from the ground up, including classes such as “Starting an Herbal Product Business 101” for other would-be business owners.  Botanical Earth is also working on new specialty product lines, including seaweed products, and a children’s line called Botanical Babe.  Remaining dedicated to the implementation of client feedback & suggestions, Debra also plans to create more olive oil-based products that do not include coconut for those with allergies.

The future of Botanical Earth looks bright, indeed!
