My name is Fleur, I am Dutch and based in the Netherlands after having spent several years abroad in Spain. About a year ago I discovered a passion for writing and landed a job in content writing and digital marketing, which I absolutely enjoy doing. I acquired a lot of on-the-job training and have been learning every day since. I embrace this new knowledge and expertise, I am planning on expanding my writing skills more and more over time.
Hospitality, travel & events
I studied Hotel Management in Maastricht, the Netherlands. After I graduated I have been working in both hotels and travel agencies. Travel is my business and my passion, I have worked in the tourism and hospitality sector for several years before making the switch to content writing. Because of my background, I understand the hospitality and travel industry thoroughly. I enjoy writing about travel experiences and mindset, which reflects in my two blog sites.
Writing & blogging
In the meantime, I have been learning various ways of writing texts and doing research. The main focus of my experience lies in content writing, commercial writing, and copywriting, researching on various topics and finding the right sources to customize a text and appeal to the reader. Applying CTA’s suitable for the text and using SEO techniques to improve Google ranking.
Once I started blogging I knew this would become one of my favorite things to do in my free time. But not just the writing itself I find enjoyable, also building my websites makes me feel excited each time I work on them. Links to my websites can be found at the Portfolio section below.
I have been doing some studying and attended several training sessions and practice on the job. My current employer provides me with all the tools and knowledge that I need to stay up to date and I get to utilize some of the best known digital marketing tools out there.
Tools and applications that I am familiar working with
- Drupal (HTML coding)
- Screaming Frog
- Google Analytics and Google Ads
- Social Media Ads (Facebook and Instagram)
- Microsoft Office products
- Affiliate Marketing (Awin, Tradetracker, Daisycon.com)
