When we work together, you'll get the commitment of a versatile writer, who understands how to communicate persuasively. You'll get someone who has the digital knowledge to make your marketing message work online. You'll have the advantage of the expertise of a trained copywriter who has a strong professional background as an award-winning journalist, with BBC experience, and as an international magazine editor.

Like every business operation, you need to market the benefits of your services, products or niche industry sector to your own customers. As a business copywriter in West Sussex and award-winning journalist with strong research and analytical marketing skills, I'll capture the essence of your services and help push your company forward.

I've written for diverse sectors ranging from gas pipelines, raw rubber production, horticulture and landscaping, international finance, the medical industry, overseas property, interior design, cosmetics, shoes, health, to hotels, resorts and eco-tourism reserves, and more.

Copywriting sectors I specialise in are: Travel & Tourism; Small Business & Finance; Property & Real Estate; Health, Alternative Health & Medical Communications and Consumer Lifestyle.

Your business or industry comes with its own complexities, specifics and jargon. I know this. Which is why I'll deliver great results for you by studying your existing marketing materials and that of your competition, by talking to you, and where needed, to your sales people.

By getting to understand your industry, your brand identity, your audience and your marketing goals in detail, I'll be ready to write about your business in the most positive light for the people who matter most: your customers. I'll provide them with clear and understandable SEO website content and well-written industry blogs that they'll understand - and want to act upon.

Maybe you have a clear marketing plan or a one-off brief - in which case I'm happy to work to order. If not, don't worry. We'll talk your business and goals through. Then we'll figure out your best content strategy. I'm also happy to work alongside your web designer or developer so that your site's layout, content and functionality work in harmony.

I'm not an agency so you'll find my fees affordable and straightforward. I'll give you a complete start-to-finish quote, so there are no hidden costs. I always work until you are 100% satisfied.
