We chose a word that means ‘improvised’ because we wanted our name to reflect our ability to ‘go with the flow’. Here at extempore, we’re great improvisers – not in the musical sense; we leave that to the people who do it well)
We’re small, responsive, effective, creative. We still produce publications with a focus on Australian jazz and improvised music… but now, motivated by our enthusiasm for the energy that drives arts organisations and small businesses, we’ve diversified, playing on our strengths in business writing. With clients in the technology sector, the arts and government, we love creating web content for business and the arts, with a special focus on great case studies.
Are case studies the cul-de-sacs of your website?
We’ve been doing some great work with some of our clients, creating case studies that generate traffic, with vibrant, compelling, search engine optimised stories. The work you do is your portfolio; it attracts new customers and reassures your existing clients. The stories about your best work are your organisation’s history and reputation. They’re also a great way to get search keywords onto your website.
