“From strong conceptual DM to the clear and punchy rewriting of our new AOL Canada website, Laura always delivers fresh, tight copywriting that’s on target, on deadline and within our budget. We’ve had great results bringing her in as part of the team to brainstorm creative with our senior designers. And as a fast-paced organization, it’s nice knowing that she’ll always make herself available for an impromptu briefing on any rush project.”

“CopyBard rewrote my BMO Nesbit Burns investment advisor site. Since the rewrite, I have experienced a significant rise in click-throughs. There is a measurable increase in time spent on the site and a strong increase in click-throughs to pages within the site. As the site design never changed, it’s all credit to compelling copy that is now enticing visitors to stay, read more about my business and, ultimately, become my clients.”

In addition, Laura has played an integral role in the revamping, rewriting and re-awesoming of the pre-launch site. She has brought “Emily” the blogger to life and filled PlayOLG.ca with stories of history, mystery, fun and passion.

Nucomm
“As Chief Marketing Officer of NuComm International, a fast growing International contact center company. On site and off, she wrote strong marketing materials, web content, press releases, newsletters and case studies. In fact, she proved not only an excellent writer but a savvy communications consultant. Laura worked quickly and independently, interviewing external and internal clients to extract content for case studies and newsletters. She kept communications fresh and strong and even encouraged a total writing revamp of our website that worked well. I highly recommend CopyBard as a smart and effective writing resource.”

“Smart, fast and a great communications resource. As Marketing Director at Foresters/Unity Life, I had worked with Laura previously and knew I could trust her to work with me on a complex new life insurance application project in 3rd quarter 2009 through January 2010. As always, she hit the ground running and was able to generate strong advisor and internal communications, liaise effectively with executive stakeholders, stay focused on deadlines and make sure the project hit all its goals. She’s a senior writer/project manager who really gets it and I look forward to working with her again in the future.”
