Understanding Your Objectives
Working together we will identify who it is you want to reach and why – whether it’s finding new customers, communicating with existing stakeholders, boosting your brand, or establishing your position as a thought leader.
Storytelling & Tone Of Voice
Once we are clear who you want to reach, we’ll help you define and tell your story and shape the appropriate tone of voice for your business.
We can develop your content plan, determine what to publish and when, agree deadlines, and select the best medium for communicating your message.
Production & Sign Off
Once you are happy with the plan, we’ll get to work writing your story using all our journalistic know-how to produce first class content ready for you to sign off and publish.
Analyse & Review
Our relationship doesn’t simply end with the writing of the words. Post publication, we recommend a follow up discussion looking at what was successful and what scope there is to build on this in the future.

I’m Shaun Lowthorpe and I use my journalistic know-how to support businesses and organisations looking for customer-focused storytelling and communications.
Today’s businesses need to think like publishers and I add editorial thinking to your content marketing processes, whether its creating blogs, brochures, communications, magazines, case studies, or undertaking a full-blown content strategy. I also train, mentor and support in-house content creators for businesses seeking to build the capacity to source and produce compelling content themselves.
I’ve gone from being a business editor to being a business owner and I’m passionate about supporting small independent companies. Like you, I’m focused on adding value and keeping costs competitive. I also love collaborating with like-minded people.
Think like a journalist
I combine a nose for a story with commercial acumen and can use those skills to help with corporate interviewing, ghost writing thought leadership articles, competitor research, and fact-checking.
Looking for ideas and inspiration? I also undertake training and mentoring to help you brush up your writing skills and think like a journalist to promote your business or organisation.
