Project Profile: Blog Management for PodStar


Client

Sustainable superstars PodStar is a husband and wife team based in Sydney on a mission to stop waste from coffee pods.

So far they’ve done a pretty good job.

In 2018, Kirsten and Mark released the first reusable coffee pod for Nespresso machines. Since then they’ve designed and created stainless steel pods for another three machines; Aldi, Caffitaly and just recently the Espressotoria machine. That’s over 10 million single-use pods saved from landfill in two years.


PodStar-Sydney

Project

Pod Star contacted me in May 2020 with two core goals:

  1. To write a Press Release for the launch of their new product – the first reusable pod for Espressotoria machines in the world
  2. To boost the blog section of their website via blog management and SEO-friendly blog content

Brief

The first priority was the product release. 

For the blog, I proposed a three-month content strategy to increase Pod Star’s online traffic and help raise awareness of their brand and products over time.

Being creative and passionate about sustainability themselves, they already had topics in mind and a handful of articles published on their blog. But lack of time and being busy with their own work meant new content had been put on the back burner. 

This is perfectly normal for many business owners! 

It had been three months since the blog had any love so I recommended ongoing content; an article to start with, followed by two articles each month. 


Process

First, we targeted the new product launch. 

This involved researching, writing and editing a press release to send to media contacts and draw attention to their eco-friendly creation. 

The next stage of the project was blog management for PodStar. To determine the right topics, I had to understand who we were talking to. 

Using Google Analytics and the creative brief I ask clients to fill out, the target audience was profiled and four goals created based on their content needs. 

The next stages involved:

  • An audit of Pod Star’s current blog content  
  • Keyword phrase research 
  • Devising a content strategy around chosen keywords to reach goals and meet the audience’s needs 
  • Checking Google Trends for trending topics 
  • Using research tools like Answer the Public to brainstorm question ideas
  • Brainstorming headlines and checking scores against CoSchedule 
  • Finalising a three-month editorial calendar
  • Researching, writing, optimising and editing 7 articles

Results

As Pod Star is over east, everything was delivered via email. 

The outcome was 7 articles about educational topics such as:

  1. Stainless Steel Coffee Pods – Reasons to Make the Switch
  2. What Eco Coffee do You Drink? 3 Types and their Benefits
  3. How to Find the Best Coffee Pod Machine in Australia
  4. 7 Sustainable Gift Ideas to Nurture Australia’s Environment 
  5. How to Identify Greenwashing and its Negative Impact

Conclusion

This project was fantastic to work on because of the similarities in values. 

Pod Star have a clear message on their website which I love:

“When you partner with us, you’re partnering for a better world. Less waste, less plastic, more care, better life.”

– Mark and Kirsten, Pod Star


These are ethics that are closely aligned with mine and my business. Which is one of the reasons why Pod Star was such a great business to partner with.

We recently worked with the little typewriter to produce web site copy for a new business (My Plan Assist) and we could not be more happy with the result. Jayde took the time to get to know our brand, and from there she conducted extensive research before translating our brief into amazing copy. Jayde was professional, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. We were so thrilled with the result that we immediately commissioned the little typewriter to create further content for our blog to further enhance our web site. Highly recommend without hesitation. Samone, My Plan Assist

Jayde is one of the most professional and hard working people I have ever come across. Not only does she provide her clients with the highest standard quality of work, she does so with a positive and conscientious attitude. Jayde goes above and beyond for her clients to ensure that she provides exactly what they are looking for and no task is too much for her. Other businesses I have dealt with have not bothered to really get to know what myself as the client is looking for but the rare and unique thing about Jayde is that she really gets to know all her clients on a personal level and that is why you feel so comfortable with her. Jayde embodies everything a hard working, polite, professional should be. I would recommend Jayde a thousand times over and wish all the success in the world for her future projects and endeavours.
Response from the owner: Thank you Georgia for the kindest of words! 💚🙏🏼 really appreciate your support. 😊
Jayde was great. Delivered exactly what she said she would with great copy that suited my business perfectly.
Response from the owner: Thanks for hiring the little typewriter as your copywriter, Dave. 😊 Good luck with the new business! Look forward to working with you again.
Jayde is a wonderful person to work with, especially if you have absolutely no basic knowledge of websites or computer "stuff". Jayde is patient, witty, supportive and never once made me feel like an idiot. I'm an intelligent woman at what I do, but computers and all the jazz were way over my head. Thank God for Jayde!! And I now have a fab website.
Response from the owner: Thank you Dee :-) I'm so glad to have helped you with your website and wish you all the best on your new business venture.
I engaged the little typewriter to write and design a short report. The experience was ultra professional and the output was beyond my expectations for both content and graphic design. Strongly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thanks, Sharon for your feedback and for hiring me as the copywriter for your project. I look forward to working with you again in the future. :-)
Jayde is a highly talented writer. She takes the time to understand her clients and delivers quality work every time. Always a pleasure to work with.
Response from the owner: Thanks, Mitch. Much appreciated! I look forward to our next project together. 😊
I am so happy to have crossed paths with Jayde and her company the little typewriter. She's helped me craft a professional worded email that not only reflects me and my business but did so quickly and easily. I can highly recommend her not only for large copywriting projects but also for small delicate assignments. Looking forward to working with Jayde more in the future!
Response from the owner: Thanks a million Clare. :-) I'm so happy you liked the copy and look forward to seeing your business grow more. Always great working with you.
Having worked with Jayde for nearly two years at Australian Property Investor Magazine, I have found her communication abilities and knowledge of the Australian property landscape to be impressive.It has been a pleasure working with Jayde in her role as a freelance writer for API. She is reliable, flexible and happy to make revisions when asked. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jayde to potential employees and wish her all the best in her future business endeavours.

Having worked with Jayde from the little typewriter for years, she has taken the time to get to know our company and customers extremely well. Jayde knows exactly how to pitch our services and products in a way that is fun, interesting and definitely not boring.We’ve really appreciated the time that goes into researching anything to do with Just in Time Gourmet and new product ranges we take on. Whether it’s a new blog post, producer or gourmet food products, we’ve always been extremely confident Jayde will have a creative way to write that reflects our own brand.We have no hesitation in recommending Jayde and TLT to showcase any business, their products or boost their brand. Yes, we can be a little biased when it comes to our own company, so it’s wonderful when you find someone that is as passionate about making your business a success as we are. Looking forward to our next project together!
Response from the owner: Thank you Jodee for your kind words. Always a fun and mouthwatering experience writing for JITG! And love helping someone who is so passionate about what they do. :-)
We recently had Jayde Walker from TLC prepare a series of team member profiles for us for our new website. Would I recommend her services to others? . . . Absolutely!The service Jayde provided was excellent. We couldn't recommend her more highly, or be more pleased with the outcome.
