Hello! I am The Marketing Assistant.


Hi! I’m Tegan, the Marketing Assistant. I’m here to help purpose-driven brands be seen, heard and loved by their people. I’m a communications strategist, digital marketer, copywriter, content creator, proofreader and copy editor with a heart for start-ups, small to medium-sized businesses and solopreneurs. I’d like to help you solve your marketing problems. If you’ve just started out and you don’t know where to begin—I can design a brand communications strategy for your brand or if you have all that figured out but need someone skilled to take over your marketing tasks—I can help with that too.

I want to work with the good guys: brands that put people at the centre of everything they do, whose passion it is to make their customers’ lives easier and maybe even happier. I’d like to do the same for you.

What I Do

Brand Communications Strategy

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re in a growth phase, you’ll need a plan. I can help you cut a clear path to your goal with a tailor-made strategy that covers all the bases.

Social Media Planning & Content Creation

Love it or hate it, social media can be a force for good in this world but it can also be a major energy vampire. Let me help you find the joy by taking some of the more tedious aspects off your hands.

Social Media

Sometimes, to win, you have to put your money where your mouth is. Social media advertising, even with the littlest budget can have a huge impact on the success of your brand. You gotta have it!


Struggling to find the words to express just how truly awesome you are? No problem, I will make your brand sparkle and hit the spot with your target audience.

Proofreading & Copy-editing

I can be a stickler for good grammar, spelling and punctuation – when I need to be. I understand the nuances of language and the how the right word, on the right platform, connects no matter what.

Graphic Design

I outsource all my design to a team of multi-skilled graphic designers and help you get your creative brief right, the first time for the best results.

Tegan has helped me tremendously personally throughout the years. She helped me to define my personal brand and get my career on track. I struggle to express my ideas on paper in a clear and succinct manner. Tegan has helped me to refine my ideas and write in a livelier way. It is for this reason that I am trusting her to help me bring my new personal project to market.
