JESSICA BELL COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT
Catch their attention, convey your message, CONNECT with your audience
I work with Kiwi businesses to tell their story in whatever way they need: from digital content and social media to long form proposals, reports and thought leadership pieces.
Whatever your business goals - from increasing employee engagement to launching a new product or service, I can work with you to develop and implement an effective communications and PR strategy that fits your market and your people. I can help you navigate social media and develop digital content that is fresh, fun and fit for purpose.
Unsurprisingly, I'm a big words person. Little excites me more than a well-turned phrase or slick use of grammar.
I'm pretty fascinated with other languages too, having begun my career with a degree in French, German and Creative Writing at Victoria University.
But I'm not just into well-written prose. With nine years experience in communications, marketing and proposal writing for Fletcher Construction, McConnell Dowell and on the Waterview Tunnel project, I get big business and how to communicate with diverse audiences.
I'm also a bit of a health-nut, holding a Diploma of Nutrition from Wellpark College of Natural Therapies and putting my passion for nutrition to use writing for M2Woman, Good Health and Fitness Life magazines.
I'd love to hear how I can help your business tell your brand story.
“Jess was brought on board to raise the profile of Infrastructure New Zealand’s 2019 Building Nations Symposium through traditional and social media. She worked with Infrastructure New Zealand member organisations to run a social media campaign that greatly increased in engagement:
130% increase in page views to the Infrastructure New Zealand LinkedIn page in the three months preceding Building Nations 2019
103% increase in followers to the Infrastructure New Zealand LinkedIn page in the three months preceding Building Nations 2019
250% increase in social media posts and mentions by parties other than Infrastructure New Zealand over the same period in 2018.
I highly recommend Jess.”
Paul Blair, Chief Executive, Infrastructure New Zealand
