You are a small tourism business in Scandinavia and would like to use digital marketing strategies to get more customers, but aren't quite sure how? I'm here to help!

My passions are travel writing and Nordic landscape photography. Aside from having the formal knowledge about Norway and the Nordics that's required to produce informative content about the region (thanks to my university degrees in Northern & Indigenous Studies from UiT and extensive travels), I also know the dos and don'ts of digital storytelling, as I have a background in journalism, blogging and digital marketing,

Aside from collaborations that I offer as a blogger at Snow in Tromso, I can also be hired as a freelancer, and am available to help you with copy writing/blogging, translation, as well as stock imagery. I can also provide minor graphic design work on request. In addition, I can provide training/consultation when it comes to blogging and social media in general.

Have a look at my service list below for details:

It was a pleasure working with Vanessa. The blog entry about the Scandic Hamburg Emporio was very well written and reflects our hotel in a beautiful and personal way.
