Eleanor Goold from Compliance Manager to Copywriter and Communicator - MPAF89
In this episode I talk to Eleanor Goold, an ex-financial services compliance manager who's reinvented herself as a copywriter.
A fascinating story giving a unique insight into the way we market financial products such as pensions, investments and protection.
Hear Eleanor talk about simplicity in communications and how important it is to focus on benefits and not features.
That's all right here in episode 89 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast.

What is the Marketing Finance and Protection (MPAF) Podcast?
It’s the Podcast for Financial Services Professionals looking to share business ideas and inspiration in the world of Marketing, Protection and Finance.
The MPAF Podcast is a 30 minute audio show you download from http://rogeredwards.co.uk/MPAF, iTunes or Stitcher Radio. Each week I’ll be interviewing financial services providers, advisers, experts and journalists.
Interviews to listen to in the car, on the train or on the treadmill.
The main focus of the podcast is on what we can do to make protection and finance more accessible to the consumer and how financial services professionals can develop and promote their businesses.
We’ll look at financial services products, interesting business models and campaigns with an emphasis on the following:
Marketing – talking about how financial services professionals can develop and promote their businesses using traditional marketing tools but focussing on modern content marketing and social media techniques.
Protection – talking about life insurance, critical illness, income protection and other protection products
Finance – talking about pensions, platforms, savings and investments
My aim is to make sure that you will get one or two big business ideas that you can apply to our own business. Whether it is a sales idea, advice idea, product tweak or simply an app that is worth looking at.
I’m your host, Roger Edwards.
A marketing guy from Edinburgh I help people like you with your marketing strategy, content and social media. Until I set up my own business I was in and out of senior marketing roles in UK Financial Services Companies for two decades. Some of you might remember me as the Marketing Director and Managing Director of Bright Grey and Scottish Provident.
