Work with me
For content creation, advertising ideas, digital consulting, social media strategy, and much more
Website not performing? I can review your website strategy and content, and show you how to increase your website traffic, dwell time and conversions. I can also write engaging new content that’s optimised for search engines, and more likely to be shared on social media.
Want to revamp your website? Then make sure you talk to me before you talk to a digital designer. Content is king, and without really understanding what content your users are after, and what you want your website to do, you can’t create a site that satisfies their needs, as well as your business goals.
Looking for email marketing success? I can refine your email marketing strategy and power-up your email content to help you acquire new customers, encourage repeat bookings, or reactivate lapsed travellers.

I’ll get your business on leading social media sites, such as Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook, and grow you the right type of followers with a strategy that’s right for your brand and needs. I can also create posts and content schedule to get your social activity flying, and I’m happy to help you manage your pages as they become more successful.
Need a social media boost? I can write highly-shareable content that engages your Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook followers, and is seen by more of the right kind people. One-off campaigns or on a regular basis.

If you’re reading this and thinking about employing Claire, I would heartily recommend you do so. And please feel free to drop me a line if you would like a more detailed reference” Phil Hicks, Saatchi & Saatchi, NZ
After positive publicity? Invite me to experience your hotel, B&B, resort, town, airline, or product if you think it fits with my niche of ‘weekends away in the UK or Europe’. Afterwards, I will write a professional article (complete with stunning photography, which I’ve taken myself) about my weekend with you and promote it here, on my travel blog. I’ll also promote the article through my social media channels – with thousands of active followers – and link back to your site, driving new customers your way.
Alternatively, I can be commissioned to write an editorial piece or itinerary for your hotel, experience, service or destination that you can use on your website, blog or in your magazine – under your brand and tone of voice.
Claire is a gifted writer with a flair for insightful, impactful and interesting creative work. ” Neil Fox,GillFoxJames
Ready to start a blog? I can set up a blog for your brand and help make it a successful part of your marketing activity, with content that’s spot on for your target audience and drives loyalty and new business.
Not enough time to blog? Writing a company blog can take up a lot of time. Hand it over to me and I’ll source, create and edit engaging content on your behalf as a ghost blogger.

Claire’s writing has been a breath of fresh air. Her ability to put a creative spin on any given brief ensures the resulting copy is always engaging and immersive. When she writes, you feel the love she has for the subject, which makes you love it too! Bethany Gallacher, PR & Social Media at Northumberland Tourism
I am fortunate to meet interesting talented people in my job. Claire is one of the best writers I have worked with.” Mike Sumner, Editor and Founder of Unity Films
Searching for a unique spin? I’ll take on an event or a trip with expertise and professionalism, giving live coverage through social media as I go, to tell a unique story about your brand, destination or service. I can do this under your brand or/and as a part of Travel Candy.
Inviting Clare to cover the Delicious Dart Trail in Dartmouth this March was the best decision that we could have hoped for. She knows exactly how to capture some amazing images and is so clever with the scripting when describing her experiences away. She is a lovely lady – a true professional – and we can’t wait to invite her back to Dartmouth again soon. Francesca Johnson, Bid Manager, Dartmouth BID
Want to see your brand promoted here? I can write a specific commercial post for Travel Candy, with pictures provided by you. Please note that I will only agree to write the post if I think your product, service or destination is a sweet fit with and of interest to my fans.
“Claire is clearly a very talented travel journalist. She puts love and attention into every word that she writes and researches her trips thoroughly to give her readers great insights and fascinating facts. Her blog site is a thing of beauty, as is her writing and her wonderful photography. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Claire. Definitely one to watch.” Ewan Davy, Lead consultant for Estuary PR and Communication; PR and marketing consultant to The Royal Castle Hotel, Dartmouth
Need fresh campaign ideas? Whether it’s TV, press, radio, direct mail, digital, or social I can give you campaign ideas that’ll get you heard above the marketing din. I can also write your ads, once you’ve settled on a campaign idea, and get them professionally designed, if you’d like me to.
Want a critique? Show me the marketing communication(s) that’s not working for you, and I’ll give you a critique of its strengths and weaknesses. You’ll learn what’s letting you down and discover actionable steps to put it right.
You got it, or you don’t got it. Claire she got it.”Chris Stanley, Creative Director, Golley Slater
“Claire was recommended to us by a fellow PR consultant. He spoke very highly of her enthusiasm and professionalism and I would like to add to that her approachability together with a real talent in telling a great story. I would have no hesitation in working with Claire again and recommending her as someone you would be happy to introduce to your clients.” Jane Adkins, Managing Director, A HEAD FOR PR LTD
“Once in a while you will meet someone who lifts your spirit just by their energy and enthusiasm for life, their sparkle pervades a room and their zest and zeal is contagious, life affirming. Claire Robinson is one of those people, who I had the pleasure of meeting when she came to stay and review The Boutique & Magic Atelier. It is so uplifting when ones own hard work and vision is effortlessly seen, felt and understood and then beautifully expressed into words.
Claire’s ability to express the illusive, intangible and silent is a rare gift, but rarer still when is it combined with an incredible visual eye and real photographic talent, making her reviews not only a beautiful lyrical feast for the ears, but a visual feast for the eyes.
It is a wonderful marriage in a person when such energy, passion and talent come together, mix in Claire’s life experience, work ethic and her joie de vivre, and these talents allow Claire the ability to create something of a rare written and visual quality, whilst simultaneously having her finger right on the aesthetic pulse of whats happening.
She is a very talented lady and one to watch.” Sadie Spikes, The Boutique B&B and The Magic Atelier
