Work with me

I’m Claire and I’ve been interested in making money, saving money and overall happiness for as long as I can remember. Stapo’s thrifty life hacks is where I share my ideas with my readers. I’ve written about why I finally decided to set up my blog, but you may be wondering how you can work with me.

Who am I?

I’m a journalist-turned-copywriter with many years of digital marketing experience. If you’d like to see some examples of my work, or you’d like to read a bit more about my professional background, then check out my portfolio.

How can I help you?

I’m happy to work with you (or your client) in a number of ways, including:

Sponsored / guest posts

On Stapo’s thrifty life hacks, I accept a limited number of sponsored / guest posts each month.

With sponsored posts, you’ll provide a brief and I’ll write the content for you. I have worked with a number of clients over the years to create honest, useful content. So if you’d like me to write a sponsored post, then please contact me for a copy of my media kit.

Similarly, if you’re a brand or an agency that’s interested in getting an article published on Stapo’s thrifty life hacks, then drop me an email and I will send over my prices.

Content writing

Away from this blog, content writing is my bread and butter. I’ve spent my whole career creating compelling content. I can engage readers (and customers) about anything and I know how to tailor copy that yields results.

My prices vary, depending on the scope of the job, but get in touch for a no-obligation quote.

SEO services

Search Engine Optimisation is one of my specialities. So if you’d like help with on-site optimisation, off-site optimisation, your keyword research, or for somebody to assist with competitor research, then let me know. I offer SEO deep dives, providing analysis on existing posts and/or pages and I’m also available for one-to-one coaching sessions. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss how I can help you.

Product reviews

I have written over one thousand product reviews. I have been commissioned to write genuine, warts-and-all reviews by some of the UK’s top hospitality brands, including Tampopo, wagamama, Byron and itsu. But I can turn my hand to anything. For example, during my maternity leave, I reviewed products for MadeForMums.

I’m always happy to try out new products. I’m also open to reviewing items in exchange for a product for myself, and another to give away. However, this would depend on the item and how it fits in with my brand.

Other stuff

As I’ve worked in the advertising industry for my whole career, I have experience in lots of different areas. If you have another type of opportunity in mind, then please contact me, as I’d be happy to discuss your idea.

I also work with commercial partners on Instagram, so I’d be happy to discuss social media collaborations with you.
