Contact details

Hello, I'm Neil Barraclough. I run Nota Bene Copywriting, a copywriting business working with global clients in tech, FMCG, sport and more.

For 20 years, I’ve studied and made my living from language.

A degree in linguistics was followed by a decade working for the UK's national newspapers. Stints in a busy press office, at a digital marketing agency, and with an independent picture agency cropped up along the way.

Eventually, the pull of marketing proved too great.

So today, as a copywriter, I use language...

- To persuade your prospects
- To convince your customers
- And to convert your company into advocates of clear, powerful communication that speaks to your audience

I've written, edited, sub-edited and proofread everything from books and speeches through to brochures, direct mail, and case studies.

Visit my website, give me a call or connect on LinkedIn. I look forward to hearing from you.
