Laura Oakley

I am a published writer and social media specialist based in Halifax. My focus is working with clients to develop both long and short form, written content, for a variety of outputs - ranging from online and digital to social media and printed outputs. 

Aside from working with clients to elevate their brand through content creation I also offer social media marketing and training services, particularly helping clients develop a D.I.Y. approach. 

While my client interests are varied, my personal callings have had a major influence on my professional life; I am constantly traveling, eating, writing about my meals at home and abroad. While these are personal activities they so often roll into my professional relationships; attracting many food based clients, publishers and partnerships.


Laura's Best Fit

Clients in need of content design and copywriting, editing and story telling no matter what size of organization. 

For social media engagements clients with little to moderate knowledge of social media will be best served by my process.  Clients who want to learn how incorporate it into existing marketing goals, receive technical training on tools, and build strategy to back up their efforts.
