"You have a brilliant eye for this and you are very consistent. "
Omanisa Ross
Author (I edited/proofread her book)

“I used her services to edit a book I am in the process of publishing. Well, her sense of professionalism, response time and quality of work were amazing! Not only will I use her for all future editing, but would highly recommend her to others in need of “wordsmithing”!”
Anthony Solimini

"Kay has a unique and valuable ability to capture the essence of what I say about how Orla helps people to be more organised, effective and productive. The result is powerful copy that makes sense to our prospective clients and, more importantly, inspires them to buy. She has a thorough knowledge of marketing concepts, and that shows through in every question she asks, every word she writes and every strategy she suggests. I'm also impressed that she insists on getting inside the brief and understanding our product, our brand and our clients before she puts pen to paper."
Stephen Barnes
Director, Orla

How Can I Help You Today?

I'm Kay Ross, a Hong Kong-based marketing consultant, editor and copywriter (that means I write the words of marketing messages - I'm not a copyright lawyer). My company is Kay Ross Marketing.

In my work, I call on my 30+ years of training and experience in marketing/editing/copywriting, in the performing arts (acting, improvisation and public speaking), and in the field of personal development/wellness/healing.

The common thread that links all three of my passions (marketing, performing and healing) is: Storytelling. So I'll help you and your teams to find, craft and tell juicier, more resourceful stories about the past, present and future of your business, and to be more creative and innovative.

Contact me today to find out how.

Is marketing a mystery to you? I'll show you how to understand what your customers are really buying; craft compelling, shareworthy English-language marketing content; be a more effective writer, marketer and storyteller; look at every decision in your business from your customers' point of view, and give your customers good reasons to love you and rave about you.

The bottom line: You'll attract and retain more of the right kind of clients (and staff, allies, funders...), build stronger relationships with them, spot opportunities, and sell more of your products and services, so that you make a bigger, positive difference in the world! (I'm definitely not advocating mindless, irresponsible consumerism.)
