Alexandra in a few words

Experienced multi-media marketeer with a demonstrated 20 year+ history in journalism, public relations, marketing and SEO copywriting.

I am the Creator & Founder of the "Mallorca Under the Sun" Youtube channel, website, and social media platforms which promote Mallorca positively, create community and assist with holiday planning to Mallorca (Majorca) Spain.

I write, script, edit and produce all copy and content for both the Youtube channel and website, plus I have released a book on Kindle entitled "Living in Mallorca Under the Sun." I also write all copy for my website that is fully optimised for SEO.

Mallorca Under the Sun is the largest Youtube channel promoting Mallora positively to an engaged, global English-speaking audience. With more than 1 million views gained between May 2022 and October 2022, attracting almost 200,000 views per month during August, Mallorca Under the Sun is accompanied by a website ( and an active Facebook Group.

I also offer marketing consultancy services and work as a freelance reporter for the Majorca Daily Bulletin in Spain. I have also worked freelance for businesses in Mallorca providing marketing services to the real estate and private investor sectors.

I also have extensive experience in the travel and tourism sector, having worked as Head of Public Relations for Hotelopia and easyjet hotels, and then UK Marketing manager for the Hotelbeds and Bedsonline brands. I have also written for airline magazines and freelance for travel in the national and regional press.

Since the launch of my Youtube channel, I have also been asked to voice radio adverts for businesses for Radio One Mallorca, an English-speaking radio station.

I am looking for freelance remote projects. I can work quickly, and accurately and am extremely reliable and able to deliver content on request. I am a British Citizen and a Spanish resident. I look forward to hearing from you.
