My name is Carolyn Boyd. My background is in advertising, design, copywriting, marketing, business development and project management across a wide range of companies.  
 
I now spend my time running and marketing my own businesses (holiday cottages and dog training) and doing marketing, script writing, video editing, copy writing and business development for others.
 
I am based in the lovely town of St Just in Penwith, West Cornwall and I also work closely with St Just and Land's End Chamber of Commerce to promote our local area.
 
Holiday Cottage Marketing
 
As well as setting up successful holiday let Lebanon Cottage, in 2005, I run www.stjustholidaycottages.co.uk portal site. This background has given me the experience and insight to help other holiday cottage owners with everything from updating their copy to make it more appealing to potential guests to setting up from scratch.
 
I can provide assistance with holiday cottage setup, guest care, pricing, marketing, copywriting and advertising.  Whether you have a holiday cottage that is not getting as many bookings as you would like or you are setting up a new holiday let, I can give advice on all aspects of running a successful holiday property from finding a cleaner to getting more bookings.
 
St Just & Land's End Chamber of Commerce
 
In May 2010 I project managed the first Exploring leaflet for the Chamber. Starting with collating all the information from members, the project involved photography, liaison with a graphic designer and printer and with the Chamber committee.

In May 2011 I revised and organised the reprint of the Exploring leaflet and also produced a new Where to Stay leaflet for the area, and in 2012 produce a further leaflet to promote trades and services in the area.

I also worked closely with the web designers on the re-design of the Chamber website and continue to work on providing information.

Video Editing
 
Deluxe Materials Ltd is a client based in the South East that is a manufacturer of scale modelling products sold worldwide through their own website and distributors.

With Simon filming much of the video, I produce 'How to' videos for use at sales conferences, for training and online. The work involves liaising with the client to make sure I meet his aims, scripting, video, voiceovers and editing.

The brief was to produce simple, easy to understand and inexpensive videos that would appeal to a wide audience of different types of modellers. I work closely with the client, often using his own photography and video assets or those of other photographers and model makers, and I combine them into a seamless product.
 
And what about my own businesses?
