How do people decide whether to buy from you?
They decide based on what you say, the words you use, and the impression they get. Customers judge if they know, like and trust you enough based on what you’re putting out there. Is it really that simple? Sort of. It’s simple when you know how. It can be hard to know how to talk about your business in a clear and simple way. And that's exactly what you need to do to cut through the noise and be heard. In a way that makes your customers stop browsing and start buying.

There are a number of factors that contribute to not winning business but I guarantee you that communication is at the heart of it.
If people don’t get it, they won’t buy it. If you’re confused, so are your customers. People crave clarity.
You want to run a successful business around your family life, that gets clients, makes money and makes a difference. I completely understand. Me too. Use my gift.

You won’t find any “hacks” or “blueprints” here. Just real strategic expertise. And a touch of messaging magic!
Simplicity sells. Clarity adds focus.
It’s so frustrating knowing what you have to offer, but not being able to articulate it.
You need a message that makes you stand out from the competition, connects you with those clients and makes them reach for their credit card.
I know it’s frustrating, because believe it or not, I’ve struggled with this too. It’s difficult to figure this stuff out when you’re so close to your business. It’s called the curse of knowledge. Even if you’re a pretty good copywriter figuring this stuff out alone is hard.
What you need is a messaging magician! (That’s me by the way!)
I’ve helped many frustrated businesses through the journey from confused to clear
From struggling to articulate your offer, to having a message that really connects.
Save your energy
From wasting money on marketing that isn’t working, to marketing that brings in business

Imagine that. By learning how to communicate better you can have a thriving business, do what you love on your own terms, and make enough money to go on holiday wherever you fancy without feeling guilty! You earned it.Book a a free call to find out more
Do you get stuck when trying to talk about you and your business?
You know you could get better results from your marketing, but you are stuck with what to say?

“What do you do?”
What if there was an easy way to get unstuck?
Would you like an easy-to-follow toolkit that helps you get clarity on your messaging so you can move forward with your PR, marketing and networking conversations?
The simple stuff you need to do first, but probably didn’t realise?
In your words…
“I cannot tell you how much of a difference you have made and I can’t believe it’s been done in just three weeks!
It’s often easy to tell people what you do but your why is harder. That’s where Lucy is superb – she spends time really getting to know you and your business, asking the questions which will bring out your unique story.
She’s great fun and her friendly, supportive coaching style gave me so much more confidence as well as bags of ideas to grow my business online.”
Sian Price, Cooks Lane Herbs
“Lucy’s brand review & refresh was fantastic and came at exactly the right time as I was feeling a little lost about whether my brand message was coming across as clearly to my target customer as I hoped. It really helped to have my brand, customer and messaging across all channels viewed through a fresh pair of eyes.
The review helped me to understand areas where my messaging was confused and not coming across as consistently as I wished.
Lucy’s report contained a practical list of actions I could start working on straight away. Alongside this, I found the opportunity to chat through the report with Lucy afterwards really helpful.
I have started working on the actions Lucy gave me already, and this is helping me to deliver a more cohesive message across my website, blog and social media channels”Beth Searle, Besobaby.com
“I am so pleased to have found Lucy! I was flailing around in an endless cycle of signing up to newsletters from marketing gurus, trying to reinvent myself as they offered me a sure-fire way to draw in new clients and feeling hopeless as I struggled to be clear in my own mind about what I was trying to achieve. Enter Lucy. She’s helped me define who my clients are (and not be afraid to be quite specific), why I am the right person to work with and importantly, how I can tell them this!”Bev Loczy, Peace of Mind PA
“Having an expert and impartial review of my website and marketing collateral has been invaluable. When it’s your own business, you can be blind to some of the errors you’re making, or you simply miss opportunities for reinforcing your brand and key messages.
Lucy was great to work with. She very quickly got my business and what I was trying to say, and has suggested some really actionable improvements that will get my message across more clearly to my customers.”
Amanda Overend, Books & Pieces
“I’d been spinning round in circles with how to pitch my company and to whom, I sort of had it, but my confidence was sliding. I decided that I needed some expert help! Within a couple of phone calls, a week of emails and a lot of hard work we had it cracked.
I’m now filled with confidence when talking about my company, I have a tag line that makes sense and we’ve found the USP of my business that we can focus on.
What I love the most is that I went on this journey with Lucy, she didn’t just take my brief and then tell me what to say; with her expert guidance she helped me to work it out, which means I own the message and I understand it and therefore can communicate it with confidence.
When you’re a small business its a very hard decision to spend your precious few pounds on things like message and tone of voice, but getting it right means its easier to sell, so this investment should quickly be returned. I highly recommend Lucy at Starting Conversations, she will set your marketing on the right track!”Helen White, Brilliant Together
