Queensland Virtual Realty – real estate listings

17th December 2015

“Queensland Virtual Realty have used the services of ‘the wordmistress’ (Gina Lofaro) to write our real estate listings for more than two years. We provide Gina with photographs, an address and a list of features and she creates powerful copy that does a great job of engaging the reader, resulting in a greater number of enquiries for us. Gina has an excellent understanding of the features that sell a property. She takes the time to hone in on the right kinds of buyer for a specific property, then writes according to what would appeal to them.


Using Gina’s services enables us to post listings in a much shorter time frame because we don’t have to spend the time coming up with the copy ourselves. We find we are more productive when we can focus on other tasks and leave the writing to her. We recommend without hesitation engaging ‘the wordmistress’ to write property listings that generate more enquiries.”

OneLove Foundation – website content

25 March 2014

“Looking for a copywriter? Look no further – Gina has been a legend to me, she has the patience of a saint and the willingness to see some-thing through, I approached her to do some work for my new website, I sensed the content was slightly different to what she would normally write about. However Gina made it her business to learn about what I did, with her open mindedness and genuine desire to understand – so she could write from a place of sincerity and integrity, she has blown me away of how she has been able to take my words and bring a certain finesse to them – that I just didn’t know how to do – she is truly a gifted woman with words. I highly recommend Gina for your job – no matter what it is I trust that she will deliver for you!”

The whole process has been a pleasure and I recommend Gina without qualification or reserve.”

Niche Property Management – website content and suburb profiles

18 September 2013

“I needed to find someone who could enhance what I’d written for my website. From the first communication with Gina, I was impressed by her wonderfully easy, warm manner. She understood exactly what it was I was trying to achieve by getting to know me and my business. She exceeded my expectations by turning it around in two days and I was seriously happy about that because I’m keen to get underway! Gina is extremely professional, experienced and creative. I can definitely see why she is the ‘wordmistress’. I’m extremely happy with the result and can’t wait to put Niche in the marketplace with the help of the words that now articulate everything I didn’t quite know how to say! Gina has added the polish and professionalism that I want reflected throughout my business.”

Chelsea Brands – marketing letter

29th April 2013

“I contacted Gina (the wordmistress) to write an urgent letter to go out to distributor prospects for our Australian developed baby product. Naturally I was hoping for quality work but as I had not worked with Gina before I wasn’t sure what to expect. What she wrote for me was exceptional and went beyond my expectations. She turned the job around in just a couple of hours when I thought we’d have to have a meeting and the job would take days. Gina quickly understood what I needed and made the whole process very easy. I won’t have any hesitation in using her services again. In fact now I know her efficiency and how easy it is to work with her, I will get her to do more things that I usually tackle myself.”

Mike Brooks

Thrive Promotional – website content

7 February 2013

“I asked Gina from The Wordmistress to help me out with some copywriting for a new website (www.thrivepromotional.com.au). I was drawn to Gina’s comfortable, conversational style of writing. It was the relaxed personal feel I wanted to convey.

Gina helped me to tidy up some existing copy and provided additional copy ideas for other aspects of my website. As I’ve been in business a long time, I think the real benefit was more about focus. I was challenged ‘in a nice way’ to really consider the key messages I wanted to convey on the website and in future projects.

Thank you Gina.”

Ledger Guard – ebook writing and editing

10 September 2012

“I have spent the last couple of months creating a 32 page eBook which I have wanted to do for a number of years. I had amassed a mountain of notes on my subject and was reasonably confident with the written word, but despite a few attempts over the years the eBook didn’t progress past pages and pages of draft copy. It wasn’t until Gina Lofaro, a Brisbane copywriter started working on turning my newsletter notes into sparkling copy each month that I decided with her help to give the eBook another shot. Thanks to Gina, my eBook notes have magically turned into very readable copy that has professionalism and panache written all over it.  I highly recommend Gina to anyone who wants needs a very high standard of copywriting.”

Gina captured the right tone for both myself and my business and presented the content such a clear way it was perfect first time. If you’re in the same situation – save yourself the headache and wasted hours and give Gina a call. I will always recommend Ginas work.”

MyGo2Girl – Homepage Blueprint & website content

8 November 2011

Homepage Blueprint“I recently engaged Gina Lofaro to write the website for my new range of services. From our initial consultation where we created my new website’s blueprint, I was impressed with Gina’s eye for detail. The blueprint consultation itself was extremely useful in helping me understand exactly how my new website should look and we had it all sorted before I even spoke to my web designer. What I thought I needed and what I ended up realising would be more efficient were two different things. Gina’s marketing expertise isn’t just about the words. It’s about the whole project and making sure all the marketing tools are built right into the web design. Gina was also extremely helpful and very talented in putting my business thoughts and concept into words. I highly recommend her services.”

I was impressed with the way Gina understood what I was trying to convey with a couple of calls and some emails.  There was relatively nothing I needed to change.  A great person to deal with and what I received was value for money which is extremely important for a new small business like mine!

Ledger Guard – monthly newsletter

19 August 2011

“Prior to engaging Gina Lofaro (the wordmistress), we were compiling our own monthly newsletters. As this is not our area of expertise, we found that it took an enormous amount of time to not only apply ourselves to tackle it but also to write it. We also felt it needed something fresh to revitalise it. Gina has provided an invaluable service by taking it off our hands each month. We simply provide her with the topic and some reference material and she takes charge and sends the complete work to us. We never have to worry that there is anything incorrect – we truly don’t have to think about it once we pass it on to Gina. Gina supplies us with finished copy so the amount of time spent on revisions is absolutely minimal. We can now redirect the amount of time we used to spend on our newsletters to performing our true areas of expertise.”

Anew Lifestyle – website content

14 August 2011

“I was having difficulties with a couple of pages on my website that really weren’t hitting the mark. They were vague and didn’t explain well enough what I do. I also needed a new page written to outline a new service that I offer. Gina briefed me thoroughly to know exactly what I needed and she even provided suggestions on ways to expand the service. The pages now articulate exactly what I do and make it very clear to prospective clients how I can help them. I didn’t have to give it another thought as Gina is an expert at what she does and I was thrilled with the results.”

We were impressed with her prompt delivery of work, overnight when given a deadline of over a week. Gina turned in an article that was so well written that it didn’t need to be revised at all.

Gina, I just want to thank you for such quick and efficient work, you truly make a huge difference for me and my buisness and don’t know what I did before meeting the mistress of words!”

Click Web Design – web copy, SEO articles

18 June 2011

Gina consistently produces persuasive, engaging, SEO copy that is ready to go with the first draft. You can imagine the amount of time Gina has given back to me and my business.  Gina works directly with my clients, and I receive great feedback on her work, and friendly professional approach.”

“Dear Gina, since learning of your service as a ‘Wordmistress’ last year it has been my pleasure to call on you on various occasions for supportive lettters for our business Casablanca and also for the Cabarets Queensland group of which I am the Brisbane Chairman.

On each occasion I have found your work to be articulate, to-the-point and precisely as requested, all in a timely manner.

As a small business, time or lack of, is one of our biggest enemies, as such having your professional service as a ‘Wordmistress’ to convey our message to the Government or Media has proven to be a big help.

We are pleased to know of your service and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.”

22 March 2011

“As a business owner, entrepreneur and startup educator, I regularly produce documents and communications that are valuable to my clients and my business, but, in the frenzy of activity, sometimes things go out that were not quite right in terms of spelling, grammar and just logical flow.  It reflects poorly on me personally and my brands.  I recently engaged Gina’s services and I have to say it was money very well spent.  Her work was of the highest order, fast and professional.  She effectively saves me time and completes the production process for Christo Partners and our other businesses.”

Leanne and Ian Berry – professional bios

1 December 2010

“Hi Gina

Thank you so very much for the professional bio’s you recently completed for Ian and I – from feedback we have already received you have captured “us” perfectly.

What was truly amazing was that from our brief answers to what seemed a few basic questions and your access to our resumes you have crafted our bios to encompass everything we required without the need for copious rewrites – it truly was a hands off experience for us – your expertise in writing really shines through and your ability to individually embrace what is important to showcase to clients even though you haven’t worked with us and have only briefly met me is truly a great reflection on your skills and reputation.  I love the way you introduced a little humour into our bios as well, people always say things like: we make numbers fun, we enjoy working with numbers, you make financial management almost appealing etc and this shines through in how you wrote about us

Overall you have taken something that I had really struggled with for a long time and in a cost effective and extremely short time frame delivered to us documents of quality that meet our needs perfectly.  I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for someone to “craft their perfect message” – in fact Im already raving about you!

Thank you Gina – cant wait to work with you some more.”

From the outset Gina was an absolute pleasure to work with.  The process was outlined in a clear manner with timeframes and expectations mapped out. Gina was attentive and responsive to my needs but also importantly for a new business, very cost effective.

I now feel that with Gina’s tweaks my website says exactly what I want it to – the Wordmistress really does make every word count.  My recommendation is that if you’re thinking about calling, do, you won’t regret it!”

“As owner of Bridgeland Administration Services, I hired Gina to review and re-write the pages within my website.  Gina took on the challenge with gusto, and produced top quality results which I am extremely happy with.  The communication lines were always open and Gina made me feel extremely at ease with the whole process.  I now look at my website and feel extremely confident with its content.  Gina has an extraordinary knack of being able to get the message across in the most easily understood way.  I would not hesitate to recommend Gina’s services to anyone, she is very good at what she does and it shows in the results she produces.”

Lucas Bracken – Cliff Top website content

16 August 2010

“Having recently taken over a new business and being time-poor, I appointed a graphic designer to redesign our website. We didn’t really have much time to think things through thoroughly and then we heard the words: “What content will you be using for the site?” I hadn’t even thought about it nor did I have the time to put pen to paper. Dan of Moonshine Creative recommended The Wordmistress to do our copywriting. Never had I used someone in this line of work so I was unsure and hesitant. I spoke with Gina once on the phone, and she had so many great ideas and concepts that would take our business to the next level. It was at that point I engaged Gina’s services. I briefed her on what was required. It was simple and easy, it allowed me to get the things done that I needed. I would have to say Gina exceeded our expectations. Our content is absolutely amazing! I would recommend Gina’s services to anyone, because she made dreams into reality, so see what she can do for your business. Thanks Gina, a job well done.”

Stephanie Bressan – blog posts

24 July 2010

“I met Gina – The Wordmistress at a networking event, what first struck me was her calm and gentle approach (a bit of the opposite end of the scale to me!).  At the time I was using a VA to help with the overload I had for keeping up customers blogs, but it wasn’t working out for a couple of reasons.  I thought I would give Gina a call to see if she could help – and HELP she did!!  Since Gina has started Ghostwriting our blogs are always getting comments and feedback and my clients (and therefore me!) couldn’t be happier!  There is a definite difference when you use someone who knows how to master words and draw people in.  And I have the added bonus that Gina is able to help me with the busy scramble that is my day and calmly produce excellent work!”

23 July 2010

“Gina, offered up to help my business in a time of need and provided some great suggestions for a we-needed-it-by-yesterday media release. I write in a certain style that is not the standard corporate speak and Gina was able to grasp the tone and adapt quickly. A good operator whom I’d recommend to any business.”

Barrie Executive Business Services – write website content

3 June 2010

“Taking the plunge towards starting my own business, I was fortunate to have discovered the wordmistress, Gina Lofaro from the outset.  I was comforted and reassured by her friendly and enthusiastic personality and impressed by her professionalism, depth of knowledge and the high aptitude and dedication she showed both through her work and our many communications.

Regardless of how silly the question, Gina was consistent in her helpfulness and continually provided explicit and thorough answers and explanations to any question I asked of her.

Her proficiency and expertise was always guaranteed and she successfully exceeded every expectation in the quality of work she produced.

Gina always made me feel my business was a priority and I greatly admired the prompt manner by which she delivered her work.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Gina to potential clients as I could not have achieved what I have without her.”

BayBeans Gourmet Coffee – write twitter bio

31 May 2010

“Hi Gina, your work is swift and to the point. You are excellent with how you craft words, not a single wasted lazy word. I am very impressed with the result of my Twitter Bio overhaul, but what I didn’t realise at the outset was that you offer so much more than words – you make it possible to efficiently communicate what I know and love. You also assisted me in brainstorming ideas about a lot of other things that benefit from your polished touch. My Tag line and Website intro has also been transformed from a message about me, to a message of value to my customers. I really didn’t expect that such a vast improvement can come about in what appeared to be something I could do myself – I guess its the difference between buying art from a dealer, and making your own art – one is classy and the other is, um, homemade and could be mistaken for my kids’ work!”

1 May 2010

“Gina recently did some work for us on an Ebook that we are offering on our website. She always got back to us very quickly, she completed the work exactly as she had promised, and she was always friendly and helpful every time we talked. The Ebook has been on our website for 2 weeks now and we have already had a whole bunch of people getting back to us to let us know how great it is. If you are wondering whether you should get Gina’s help, don’t hesitate any more, I know we certainly won’t in the future!”

Karen Poole, The Float Centre – website content makeover and monthly newsletter

29 April 2010

“When I first saw the website for ‘the Wordmistress’ I thought it was for a Dominatrix!

Closer examination confirmed that Gina was a copywriter. Why was I looking this up? Well Gina was a client of our Natural Therapies Clinic and I was talking about the difficulties we were having with our monthly newsletter which goes out to over 4000 clients. Gina was so clear in her communication with me about “needs” that I thought we needed someone like her to help us.

Gina, once consulted, then outlined a “needs assessment process” with a view to what we wanted to say in a clear and concise way. Her expertise was to not only to proofread for spelling and grammatical issues but also to use phraseology and ways of saying things with a degree of both professionalism and reality. We are a family business with a family and colloquial appeal and we did not want to lose this down to earth approach. Within the space of 3 monthly newsletters we had achieved exactly what we wanted. We did not even have the school teacher who regularly commented in our competition section on the grammatical and spelling errors that always seemed to turn up despite the use of “spellchecker” and all those other things we can use today.

Gina now permanently does our newsletter and any other pieces of communication we need to write. If my husband and I cannot agree what to say in a letter we usually settle with ‘let’s see what Gina says’.”

Fiona Fell – content makeover for SEO and reader-friendliness

21 April 2010

“Geek ‘Brain Dump’ + ‘thewordmistress’ = great copy

I had recently emptied my brain onto my website pages hoping for new clients, but when I read the pages back I knew the mass of words I had written were not as sharp as they could be, so I turned to Gina for help.

I gave her the huge task of giving everything a once-over for spelling, typos, grammatical whoopies and to make sure I was still speaking ‘Plain English’ and not letting any strange “Geek Speak” fall into my website copy.

With great speed, efficiency, and with even more care Gina trudged through my words and turned them into something I can be proud of. (Plus it can’t hurt I am getting more love from Google now too!)

Thanks again for your tireless efforts in keeping this geek understood.”

Janna Fikh – write tag lines

15 March 2010

“Gina was a lifesaver for me last week. Due to my extremely long warning of exhibiting at a Trade Show (whole 4 days!) – I completely ran out of time and any imagination to come up with appropriate tag lines to place around my table and stall.  Gina asked me 4 niche specific questions as to goal, purpose and call to action and she was off. Within 30 minutes, Gina came up with various highly impressive and niche specific tag lines to stir up interest from the Shows’ attendees. If you’re stuck for words – contact Gina – you won’t regret it!”

“The wordmistress was amazing in finding our mistakes before they cost us! She was able to provide an amazing turnaround on some last minute work before we needed our proposal sent out. Not only did she have it back to us quickly but she realised the importance of our document and asked some questions which helped us to perfect our copy even further. I definitely won’t hesitate in using her services again.”

9 March 2010

“Gina did an amazing job on our press release. Her content was easy to read and highlighted the fun and young vibe of our business which is exactly what we wanted. Her turnaround for the job completion was much faster than ever anticipated and she went further than her job required of her to refer me to material that would be of interest to our business. She was a delight to work with and I will be using her for all our writing needs in the future.”

5 March 2010

“Gina has just done a content makeover for my landing page.

I’m extremely happy with it – it’s as if she could read my mind and knew exactly what I wanted to communicate, despite my clumsy wording!  As someone who believes he can write, it took a bit of gall to approach Gina… but I’m glad I did because obviously a pair of fresh eyes has made all the difference. Highly recommended!”

Bo McDowell – bio re-write

25 February 2010

“When I sat down to write a simple bio about myself I didn’t expect any problems. But once I put pen to paper I started feeling the need for a little assistance. The ideas were easy to come by, but not so the words. That’s when I turned to Gina for that little extra zing! Somehow, she very simply turned my mechanical thoughts into a very reader-friendly piece. And she seems to do it all so effortlessly. I have no hesitation in recommending Gina and her clever brain to make you and your business look professional right from the outset.”

Rachel Green – commissioned article

2 February 2010

“When I first contacted Gina about writing an article for my site I had not worked with her before so I was a little tentative about what I’d receive, as many say they can write when they can’t.

The first thing that impressed me was the speed at which she delivered the article – it was there the next day. So many people promise to deliver and then don’t. She did.

The article itself was so compelling I read it from start to finish in one go, and then read it again. I am a very busy person and reading things twice is not my normal routine! Then when I gave it to our very experienced and very fussy proof reader he said, “This article is outstanding and probably the best written article I have EVER proof read for you”. This is amazing feedback. He does not gush with praise. The outcome from all this is that I have moved from being tentative to being excited about having Gina do more writing for us.”

Brady O’Brien – keyword articles

“I’d like to publicly commend The Wordmistress copywriting services (Gina) for the excellent service she provided Ipaint Pty. in a recent company side project. In my opinion, the level of service Gina extended to our business was far beyond our expectations.

I wouldn’t normally write a letter like this on an entirely unsolicited basis however in this particular case we were so impressed by the support, quality and high level of service provided by Gina that I felt compelled to go on record with our praise.

What was most impressive about The Wordmistress’ service was there was no additional financial reward. It became pretty clear very early on that it was Gina’s extraordinary commitment to customer service that motivated her to go that extra step and for this we are sincerely grateful.

In closing, I believe Gina truly deserves to be congratulated and rewarded for the level of service provided to our business.

We will most certainly be using The Wordmistress in future and will most definately be recommending the service to our contacts.”
