About Claudia

My mission is to help your small business succeed – through ethical social media marketing, translations and copywriting in English or German. 🇬🇧🇩🇪

Benefit from 19 years’ work experience

Professional background

Hi, I’m Claudia. I grew up in Germany and moved to Oxford in 1997. After studying publishing and history, I started my career at the University of Oxford in the early 2000s.

My roles mainly involved publishing, communications, policy writing, writing for the web and training.

In my spare time, I qualified as a professional translator (English/ German) and passed the CIOL diploma in translation in 2003.

You’ll also profit from my practical experience of ethical social media marketing, which I gained through working with start-up apps, and through continuing professional development (e.g. via the CIOL and CIM).

Ethical marketing for ethical businesses

Through a senior role in research ethics management, I learned a lot about digital safety and data protection, which could benefit your small business.

I’m also an advocate of ethical marketing techniques and recently joined the ethical moveFor example, I will not use fake followers, engagement pods, artificial scarcity techniques or charm pricing, amongst other things.

The badge represents my pledge to the ethical move in service of a new marketing standard based on transparency, trust, and honesty. Please contact me if you think I’m not honouring my pledge.

I love nature and the ethos behind fairtrade businesses, so I especially enjoy helping green, fairtrade and ethical businesses succeed.
 

Friendly and reliable service

Claudia gave me a lot of excellent suggestions to improve my website.

She understood in great depth the service I was offering, who my target clients were and how to attract them.

She is extremely knowledgeable about marketing and how the structure and wording of a website can make it reader-friendly and attractive to clients.

I would certainly recommend Claudia’s advice for any business.

Claudia translated the entire Didomi website into German for us this year, and we couldn’t be happier!

Claudia is an excellent translator, proofreader and copywriter, and we enjoy working with her very much.

Always a quick turnaround but with complete precision, which is impressive given the highly technical nature of our articles.

Thank you so much, Claudia, for a really comprehensive website and Instagram review

Claudia’s recommendations were really clearly laid out with suggestions that can be quickly implemented.

I highly recommend Claudia – she will take a really thorough look at your website and social media and make excellent practical suggestions.

I would highly recommend Claudia to any small businesses that want to progress and grow

I booked in a Power Hour session to concentrate solely on ads as well as defining the right target audience for my new online tutoring business. Once Claudia had reviewed my previous ads, she provided me with her own suggestions and texts in both English and German.

Not only does Claudia provide high quality content for ads and promotion, she goes above and beyond.

In between my consultation and Power Hour session, she would notify me of any useful information or advice that she came across which she thought would be helpful for my business.

Once I have completed my website, I will definitely get in touch again for further guidance.

Claudia carried out a social media audit for me and I would highly recommend her work

She first talked through with me what I wanted, responded fast to any queries and came back with the completed work in no time! Not only was it very thorough, but it had a series of ‘quick wins’ that were very helpful and some things that I didn’t even know about. Thanks!

Claudia is a true professional – hard working, client focused and creative

Claudia successfully took on several quite varied roles; she was flexible and highly self-motivated.

She excelled on both individual and team-based special projects and had particular skills and interests in the use of new and emerging information-tracking and communication tools.

Claudia was a good teacher and adviser (always genuinely willing to help colleagues and clients), a good listener and a fast learner. Highly recommended.

Claudia has been instrumental in setting up the social media strategy for Unuhi

In just 2 months (and no budget), she wrote high-performing blog posts, increased our organic followers by 81%, drove a 589% increase in website referrals and launched a highly successful story-writing competition to a global audience.

Claudia brings a lot to the table – intelligence, creativity, hard work, project management and some clear thinking. Her planning is meticulous and she dives deep into how social media can be leveraged to increase product engagement.

She has been fantastic for Unuhi and comes highly recommended.
