Sarah Mitchell worked with Tireweb Marketing in the capacity of copywriter, editor, and ghostwriter, through Global Copywriting. After years of successfully using article marketing to establish credibility and enhance authority in the USA tire industry, Tireweb wanted to create their own publication. Tireweb recognised an opportunity to provide content to help tire business owners become more profitable. They also wanted to create additional revenue streams from the content.
Sarah developed a brand newsroom strategy for Tireweb in the form of an online magazine for the tire industry, Traction News. In the role of Chief Editor, she developed the media kit, contributor guidelines, sponsored content guidelines and writer guidelines. Sarah pulled together an editorial team of Managing Editor Dan Hatch and Copyeditor Wendy Wood. All processes and workflows were developed by Sarah and Dan.
Dan managed the day-to-day operations of Traction News, including liaising with the publisher, coordinating a team of freelance and in-house content creators and communicating with Traction News readers. Dan was responsible for the smooth and efficient running of the magazine, including managing the editorial calendar and all quality processes for the magazine. Dan wrote a daily article and a weekly op-ed delivered through an email newsletter that went out to 60,000 people.
Traction News launched successfully in November 2015 and was an immediate success.

Mining People International (MPi) is a specialist mining recruitment company located in Perth. In 2016, MPi enlisted the help of Sarah Mitchell to develop a strategy to help them turn their fledgling website into a highly functional editorial property for both B2B and B2C audiences. They had been developing their own content for a number of years but weren’t experiencing the results they wanted.
Since then, MPi has worked closely with Dan Hatch and Sarah Mitchell to deliver high-quality original content to a variety of audiences including skilled trades, executives and professionals with mining experience. Over the years, the strategy and messaging have been refined, most recently in late 2019. The services provided by the Typeset team include:

Sarah Mitchell is working with Murdoch University to develop articles for their parenting series. Parents of teenagers play a large role in their child’s university selection process; however, Murdoch identified that these parents had outdated knowledge about the university admission process and about what Murdoch stood for as a university. By providing relevant, supportive information and resources to parents, Murdoch’s goal was to modernise perceptions of university and the Murdoch brand, while establishing themselves as a key source of information for parents. Ultimately, they want parents to feel confident recommending – or at least supporting – their child’s choice to study at Murdoch University.
The Raising Teenagers series has been successful and Murdoch continues to enlist Typeset’s help to develop these articles. Sarah has written the whole series and was given a chance to write a first-person account about a child’s failure with NAPLAN.

Sarah Mitchell came highly recommended to me when I was searching for an Australian-based editor for CCO magazine. Since joining up, she’s proved to be an absolutely essential member of the team.
I recommend her without an iota of reservation. Clare McDermott, Chief Editor, Chief Content Officer Magazine
I was absolutely blown away by the amazing service I received from Dan and Sarah.
They went above and beyond and were prepared to discuss on the phone a number of times, and meet in person, to ensure they had really captured a deep understanding of my niche service and the marketing strategy I had put in place.
The quality of the work was more than I could have ever imagined. I highly recommend Typeset to anyone looking for content writing. Simon Blake-Graham, Deceased Estate Selling Service
Sarah’s course, Writing Masterclass: How to improve your writing in less than four hours, lived up to the name. The course was excellent. It was informative and highly practical. It isn’t often that you do professional development and find every aspect beneficial. In this case I can say there wasn’t one part of the course that won’t help with my future writing (even as I type this, I am conscious of removing unnecessary words).
In addition to the four-hour masterclass being beneficial, the course workbook is extremely practical and is designed to be able to continuously assist in improving future work. I have found myself referring to it, moving through each exercise to cull the words and improve the flow when editing my work. Michael Bell, Engagement Manager, Engineers Australia WA
Sarah is a writer who finds new ways to look at old topics, brings the reader right by her side on new topics, and always finds the humor and the poignant in any topic. She is the ideal writer for any team, gladly pitching in where needed most and contributing content that stretches publications beyond expectations. She’s a great editor, too. My writing and approach improved thanks to her constructive feedback as part of a professional writers’ group. Catherine Lansdowne, Director of Publications, KL American magazine
