Every Spring, I revisit some of my favorite fiction. This year, I returned to Middle Earth, where I noticed a striking resemblance between Tolkien's characters and what I do. And I was reading, I realized that I am your Aragorn, your pen-sword and fractional writer for hire.

In the grand tales of Middle-earth, even the most valiant heroes like Aragorn required a fellowship to vanquish darkness and forge a legacy. As Gandalf the Grey guided the Ringbearer on his quest, a Fractional Writer is your small business's secret weapon in building a powerful brand. I provide specific services and skills, and I have a team ready to join me on your quest.

Imagine yourself as a visionary leader, akin to Aragorn, brimming with ideas to establish your brand's kingdom. But like building Minas Tirith, the task is monumental. A lone entrepreneur can only craft compelling messages across some platforms, needing the expertise of skilled craftsmen. The Fractional Writer enters here, a specialist as essential as the masons who hewed the city's very stones.

Who is this Fractional Writer, you ask?

Unlike a full-time copywriter, fractional writers offer their expertise in "fractions" of your time, functioning as your part-time brand voice architect. They are the functionaries in your epic tale. Think of them as Aragorn and also as a pen-wielding Legolas – a master storyteller with a keen eye for strategic messaging.

We tailor our services to your needs, adding the perfect flourish or crafting an entire narrative like a skilled dwarf blacksmith shaping a legendary blade.

Why should your small business consider this Fellowship member?

The benefits echo throughout the halls of Moria:

  • Cost-effective: Hiring a full-time copywriter can be a significant financial burden. A Fractional Writer provides access to high-level writing talent at a pro-rated cost, a boon for any growing brand.
  • Targeted Expertise: Fractional Writers often possess specialized knowledge in specific industries, similar to the deep understanding of the Elves regarding the natural world. We ensure your brand messaging resonates with your target audience as effectively as Elvish battle formations.                shire garden.png
  • Scalability: As your business thrives like a well-tended garden in the Shire, your content needs will evolve. A Fractional Writer adapts their workload accordingly, scaling up or down to meet your demands.
  • Strategic Partnership: An exceptional Fractional Writer isn't just a writer; they become a trusted advisor and communication coach, much like Gandalf guiding Frodo. They delve into your brand story, target audience, and competitive landscape, ensuring your writing aligns with your marketing goals, as crucial as a well-laid battle plan.


Building the Walls of Gondor: The Power of Consistent Voice

Your brand voice is the mortar that binds the bricks of your brand image. A Fractional Writer helps you develop a consistent tone and style across all channels, from website copy to social media, just as the architecture of Gondor reflects the kingdom's unwavering strength. This consistency fosters brand recognition and builds trust with your audience, as sturdy as the very foundations of Minas Tirith.


More Than Just Walls: Content that Captivates

A Fractional Writer brings the magic of storytelling to your brand, crafting website copy that informs and captivates, weaving a narrative that draws readers in and positions your brand as the solution, as thrilling as a bard's epic tale. Product descriptions become enticing adventures, and social media posts evolve from dry announcements to engaging conversations, as vibrant as a bustling marketplace in Bree.

The Moat and the Drawbridge: Protecting Your Brand Identity

In the digital age, maintaining a robust brand identity is paramount. A Fractional Writer acts as your brand voice guardian, ensuring your message stays true to your core values while adapting to different platforms akin to the defenses of Helm's Deep. They build a metaphorical moat around your brand, keeping your messaging clear and consistent and acting as a drawbridge that welcomes the right customers.

After all, the Prancing Pony isn't for everyone.


Investing in Your Kingdom: The ROI of a Fractional Writer

The return on investment from a Fractional Writer extends far beyond cost-effectiveness. They contribute to building brand loyalty, attracting new customers, and ultimately driving sales. Their strategic content creation promotes brand awareness and positions your business as a thought leader within your industry, as revered as the wisdom of the Istari.

So, the next time you envision building your brand's legacy, remember the importance of having the right fellowship by your side. A Fractional Writer, your very own Mithrandir, will guide you on the path to brand storytelling success.
