Service Description

I am available for all kinds of copywriting work whether it is writing content for websites, emails, blogs, print publications or PR work.

My most recent and on-going project in this sphere has been developing and implementing a new marketing and PR strategy for business solutions and ecommerce specialists, Pace Commerce Ltd and Pace Retail.

The objective is to promote their unique brand of bespoke webshop design and enable them to engage effectively with existing and future customers.

This involved extensive copywriting for both websites with a strong focus on customer accessibility, improving customer navigation, researching and writing several case studies, promoting the brand in the trade and regional press and optimising the use of all social media platforms to raise the business profile generally.

I am an extremely proficient, experienced writer. I have solid editing and proofreading skills, having worked in fast paced environments where accuracy is critical and deadlines must be met and can confidently take on projects both large and small. By way of credentials, I currently edit a quarterly parenting magazine with a circulation of 5000.
