Why I’m good at what I do…

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to make up stories. She wrote the most wonderful, descriptive stories about the places she'd been, the people she'd met and the things she'd done.

When she grew up, the little girl got a job in marketing, where she could be paid for writing stories about the companies she worked for. Sometimes the stories were put onto the company's websites, sometimes they were issued as press releases and sometimes they were sent out as newsletters.

Then one day, the now rather grown up little girl decided that what she really wanted to do was to write stories for as many people as possible. So she left her job and set up her own business, which she called Appletree. She started writing stories for dozens of different businesses, that they could use on their websites, in their press releases and in their newsletters. She now has lots of other boys and girls working with her, helping her to tell her clients' stories and help spread the word about them. And she'll carry on doing this until there are no stories left to tell!

The End

  • Woohoo first testimonial! I spent an hour with Chantal this week getting some inspiration on how to make my 40 seconds spiel more interesting. Though I love what I do, I couldn't find a way to (a) make proofreading/editing sound exciting and (b) let people know how I can help them, but after the session with Chantal I was buzzing with ideas! She took time to really understand what it is that I do and then went through each aspect of my business separately, coming up with ideas for each area. I came away with outlines for at least 8 intros and many actually have infinite changes I could make. Really, I should never do the same 40 seconds twice from now on! I found Chantal to be friendly yet very professional and really enjoyed the session as well as finding it very useful too.
  • Today I was lucky to listen to Chantal's 4Sight. It was not just marvellous but very interesting & useful. Simplicity is always a good point, envolving people is very grateful method during a presentation. She was very trustworthy and authentic, and I'm sure her quality in marketing is really high.
  • If marketing isn't your business, you need input from an expert. Working monthly with Chantal I have established what to focus on, and what not to; we’ve outlined 4Sights, created lists of blog topics, tweaked my website and formulated a marketing strategy that suits me and my business. Many thanks!
