I am an SEO copywriter, web designer, strategist and writer based in Canberra


I work with small businesses and organisations to share their stories and grow their brands. 

I have a great love of writing, editing and helping small businesses grow online. As well, I'm a SEO copywriterweb designer and digital strategist. 

I also teach digital marketing with my awesome digital marketing newsletter.

Until recently I lived in the beautiful country of Laos where I indulged my love of food on my blog Eat Drink Laos, and wrote food and travel articles for lots of publications

I'm particularly good at: 

  • Writing well researched content on lots of subjects from food to mining to social media 
  • Turning complex, technical writing into friendly, engaging content
  • Editing articles, blog posts and online content to draw out the story
  • Diving into techy SEO research and analysis to help sites rank on Google
  • Designing professional, beautiful websites that get loads of compliments

How I work

This is my business so I work with you one on one.

I don’t outsource. I’m right there with you in the trenches. 

There's no hidden agenda - I want what you want - a better online profile, more social engagement, higher SEO ranking, and more clients. 

I have loads of support systems and a clear client workflow. I want to make it super easy for us to work together. 

Plus, I'm a nice person. Like, so nice that I used to feed all the stray Lao cats around my house and take them to the vet. (I miss them!). 

Better yet, just ask my clients, I have a 95% referral rate. In fact my clients love my digital services so much, they tell their friends (you guys rock).

We were absolute beginners when it came to building a website for our new business. It was a steep learning curve for us but Lani was always calm and steered us through the mire.

We learnt a lot and are very happy with our website. Thank you Lani!

  • Graphic design skills in magazine production and advertising 
  • Web design skills in Wordpress, Squarespace and HTML

  • Australian federal government communications experience in a central agency
  • Environmental consultancy communications in Vietnam
  • Agriculture and climate change communications at a central Vietnamese government ministry
  • Freelance feature writing for publications across Australia, Asia and the US
  • Regularly blogging for 9 years in 4 countries 

Yep, that's a fair bit of diversity! Which means I can turn my hand to most subjects and projects. 

My writing clients span food, mining, health, travel, business and digital marketing. 

And I've designed websites for a range of small businesses including jewellery design, building, real estate, health professionals, and freelance writers. 

I came to Lilani with a brief to design a website that would present me professionally online. She absolutely filled this brief, asking the right questions to make sure my site fit my needs and to make the site user friendly. I’d definitely recommend Lilani’s services: she made the whole process easy, and the outcome was exactly what I wanted.
