Portfolio & Testimonials

After having little choice but to launch an online shop during Covid-19 lockdown in Metropolitan Melbourne, I was asked to provide SEO support for gorgeous clothing shop Quirky and the Jakster. I zhuzhed the already visually splendid Shopify powered site so that Google will be able to find it. There’s no reason on earth why the rest of the world should miss out on Jak Soprano’s shop.


I was asked to provide the copy for a promotional board, for display outside a primary school, that was both positive and reflective of 2020.

I was further engaged to interview members of the school community about their experiences of remote learning, and contribute an article to the school’s commemorative time capsule



Testimonial – “I have known Mel Bateson for 20 over years. I have the deepest personal and professional respect for her as a mother, businesswoman and copyrighter. Mel worked for me as a copyrighter for a 12-month period and I was delighted by her knowledge and skillset. She added incredible value to my work with not only her personal style but her maturity and intellect. She has an eye for detail and a love for language.

In fact I’m confident she will swiftly become your secret weapon. She has an impressive sense of humour and humility and wholeheartedly commits to her craft and assigned tasks.
