Good As Gold was incorporated at the end of April 2008 and today (12 May 2009) marks the first anniversary of when we began trading.
On paper (and according to most of the papers), you probably couldn’t choose a worse time to start a business. But we’ve been delighted to maintain a healthy order book all year round, picking up some lovely new clients along the way and making sure the existing ones are delighted into coming back for more.
Recent and current projects include writing for LEGO DUPLO at Sky Digital Media; editing a parenting book for a major UK publisher and continuing to write marketing copy for the clients of high-profile design agencies here in the West Midlands.
In fact, business has been so brisk that we’ve started building a stable of freelance writers to support us, each with their own strengths, skills and specialisms. If you’re interested in joining the Good As Gold team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and samples of your work.
And that concludes the trumpet-blowing for today, just leaving me to thank everyone who has supported Good As Gold over the past 12 months. Thank you. And stay with us - we’re going places!
[Tip from a copywriter: according to the Guardian Style Guide, only people have birthdays, while institutions and events have 'anniversaries'. But we've decided to ignore that. After all, good copywriting means knowing all the rules and making an informed choice to break them!]
