    You're busy, so let's keep this quick. Here are 4 questions my clients ask: ONE: How much do you charge for copywriting and content writing? Between £275 and £375 per day, depending on your business, the writing which is needed, and the deadline. Small businesses and charities generally pay less than agencies and larger businesses. Once we have a discovery call and I learn all about your business, I'll create a bespoke proposal outlining your whole project and the exact costs. You'll know the full costs of the project before you sign the contract. The only reason the price will change is if the scope changes, but we'll discuss this if it arises. TWO: Are you available now? Sort of. Very likely, yes. I intentionally leave lots of space in my diary for quick projects, such as a page of website copy, or a couple of blogs. So, if I can squeeze in some work I will. I really get a kick out of helping people, and I get that you might need some copy fast. Depending on the exact deadline you need (AKA: how late I'll have to work in the evening or if I'm working over a weekend) I might need to include a 25% rush fee. Generally, it takes around 6- 8 weeks to complete a copywriting project like a white paper or a full website. I can be booked for these projects 2- 3 months in advance. We can discuss exact deadlines in your discovery call. THREE: Are you an experienced copywriter? Yes. I've written everything from SEO blogs to Instagram captions to Deliveroo listings. I've written white papers and website copy. I've written newsletters and emails and product descriptions. I'm pretty gosh darn confident I could write anything you wanted. I mostly write for fabulous small UK business owners, but I've also worked with digital agencies, national brands, and international businesses. My writing has even appeared in the press, and I've got a burgeoning Substack newsletter. Head to my website for examples of my writing. FOUR: What happens when a client works with a copywriter?Everyone's got their own processes, but this is how I work best. 1. We start with a discovery call, which lasts up to 30 minutes. This is where I learn exactly what you’re looking for, the deadline, and your budget. 2. I’ll write you a proposal. If you’re happy to proceed, I’ll send you a contract and an invoice for 50% of the fee. 3. It's time for you to create a super detailed brief. I can help you with this. 4. I write your first draft and send it to you. You tell me about anything which needs to be edited. 5. I edit the first draft and send draft two back to you, with the final invoice. 6. You upload the copy to your website, or send it to your email list, or post on social media, and start engaging with your customers. 7. (And, perhaps you write me a lovely testimonial too? Hey, a girl can dream!) That's it! Easy, huh? "Bonnie refined my brand voice and optimised what I wanted to say into a condensed and easy- to- read format. All my conversations with Bonnie were natural and productive. She delivered all that she promised in a timely and professional manner." I can't wait to meet you and hear all about your business.

    Words matter. They tell the world who you are and what you do. But in today’s media-rich society, we’re bombarded with competing messages. The art of persuasion begins with good quality copy which tells your story.

Are you spending days wondering what to write for your website or brochure when you should be running your business? Have you considered using a professional copywriter? I can produce compelling content that will help you stand out from the crowd. My aim is to write creative and engaging words for small businesses, charities and social enterprises.

    Here’s my key selling point. My bread-and-butter skillset. I like talking to people. No jargon, no waffle – just honest-to-goodness conversations about what you have to offer your client base. It’s an invaluable skill. Because if we can convey how beneficial – even transformative – your product or service is, in plain English that packs a punch, you’re on to a winner. Here’s the issue for you, though. Few people can write that adeptly. There’s a knack to turning industry spiel into lively, sparkling copy. See, I’m terrible at all sorts of things. Drawing. Cooking. Competitive sports. False modesty. I am, however, pretty darn good at expressing myself. Give me complex information and I’ll transform it into a reader-friendly blog, or press release, or homepage, or brochure. Maybe a white paper or ebook, if we’re feeling ambitious. Unlike an AI app, I can natter with an executive and instinctively work out what readers will like about their product. With a reporter’s doggedness, I’ll sniff out the information I need, then serve it to readers in a way that holds their attention. Heck, I’ll even throw in some well-placed jokes if you like. If you’re a SaaS business or fintech firm that’s reaching out to customers, for instance, or anyone in the market for case studies, white papers or a ghostwriter, then I’m ideal. The strange part is, I’m a physics graduate. Half of me’s precise and analytical, so I’m a diligent, methodical researcher with an eye for detail. Oh, and an information sponge. The other half, meanwhile, is a bit arty, a bit creative. I mean, I wrote an acclaimed book about Orwell that readers singled out for its jaunty prose. Mix these elements together and what do you get? More sales! Those wonderful conversions you dream about! Because who wants to trudge through boring content from a wordsmith with a “that’ll do” attitude? As a writer and editor, I’ve been intimately acquainted with brevity, clarity and accuracy for three decades now. A turning point came in 2010 when I joined CNBC Business magazine in London. When I wasn’t writing features, I was rewriting our international correspondents’ articles in colloquial English. More recently, I’ve used this skill to research and write advertorial supplements, executive interviews, thought leadership pieces, case studies and news stories for Elite Business magazine. Not to mention high-profile advertorial sites for CNBC! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s yack!

    Hi. Hey. Hello. Finding the right words is tricky. People pay me to play with words. Because words are important. Words can confuse. Raise a smile. Paint a picture. Cause offence, anger. Make you switch off or zone out. Stir emotion. Spark a memory. Engage. Educate. I help brands, clients and small businesses get their message across to the people that need to hear it. I add a human touch, so good ideas don’t go to waste. And in a way that doesn’t make them sound like a corporate robot. Choosing the right words is an art. But more than that, they can help you stand out from your competitors, shape relationships with your customers, even save you pennies (and pennies make pounds). ---------- Kind words... “the sort of mind that I imagine must be able to put together a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle” Leigh is a fab writer. I was lucky enough to manage her while we were working with a large financial company. And during that time, I regularly heard about how she was a solid wordsmith. But also that she was able to absorb and somehow remember the intricacies of the industry. She has the sort of mind that I imagine must be able to put together a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in her head. But instead of a jigsaw, it's a thousand letters. And she's making sure they all fit together. Lewis Dowling – writer, storyteller, consultant

    It happens faster than you can think. Quite literally... Before your conscious mind has had the chance to process the information in front of you, your subconscious has already made its calculations. In fact, cognitive scientists say ~95% of our behaviour, emotion, decision-making (and more) depend on brain activity beyond our conscious awareness. 95%! In other words, we're basically running on auto-pilot but use some convincing post-rationalisations to justify our actions... And in over 200,000 years, that's not really changed. We were (and still are) guided by behavioural principles and evolutionary instincts we're not aware of. The outcomes are different, yes - we're not fighting for survival anymore - but the drivers are still very much the same. And once you know what they are (and how to tap into them) influencing behaviour becomes a whole lot easier. You can do it in person, over the phone, online, in writing - it doesn't matter. It all works the same way. And you need it. Just like every other business. How are you going to generate leads... make sales... impress investors... grow your customer base... without it? Winning others to your way of thinking isn't a "nice-to-have". It's a must-have. Especially when it's paired with a product or service that your market is worse off without. In the written realm, the world of copywriting, you need to convince your reader that your product or service is worth the money they're about to pay for it. And, in essence, that's all persuasion is. Showing how good what you have is - and how bad it'll be without it. Push. Pull. Push. Pull. And any copywriter - heck *anyone* - can use that... But the devil is in the details. Just stating facts is too overt. Too obvious. (Think, when was the last time you bought something, knowing you were being persuaded?) Instead, you need to be subtle. Compelling. And slip in under the radar. You need to make your reader feel like they're making this decision themselves. And that's not something just "anyone" can do. Over 70 businesses across the UK have used me to help them win their market to their way of thinking. And I've done so through websites, landing pages, sales pages, emails and social media ads. Together, we've turned hesitant window shoppers into high-paying loyal customers, who not only want to take action... but enjoy coming back for more. Get what your business needs. Message me now. “Lewis is a great copywriter. He has worked on ads and landing pages for us, both delivering fantastic results. He is easy to work with, enjoys collaborating and is always honing his skills. Highly recommended.” -- Stephen Bavister, Director/Founder of LexisClick Growth Consultancy 5 (kinda weird) facts about me: - I like to eat kiwis with the skin on - I'm based near Ipswich, Suffolk - I graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Automotive Materials Engineering - I'm on a mission to visit 50 countries before I'm 30 (I've visited 41 so far) - I'm a big fan of RHCP, especially John Frusciante

    'Refreshingly different from the usual twaddle.' Or so one of my agency clients tells me. Hey, I’m Laura. I’ve been writing copy and content for well over a decade, parenting a wild child for six years, and failing to tame a crazy hairstyle for a lifetime. I’m a Leeds-based freelance copywriter. Business owners, like you, hire me to write and edit words that give your business personality and make you more money. You’re great at what you do. You’ve got fab ideas, you’re a laugh to be around, and you have a killer business approach that throws shade on your competitors. But if you’re a “synergy-focussed solutions expert with a passion for customer care”, no one’s going to have a bloody clue what you’re on about. Your copy needs to be free from naff jargon, full of personality, friendly to Google, and fire up your customers to think: ‘Hey, it’s YOU I need to buy from.’ But how do you do that? Hire a freelance copywriter and content writer, like me. I’ll save you time, reduce your stress and build your business with the words that sell your stuff to the right people. Nosy at my website for other people's opinions about me and how much I charge (let's be honest, that's what you want to know, right?).

“I am at my best in the morning, so I try to schedule all creative tasks before lunch. If I’m struggling in the morning, I use the classic strategies of changing where I’m working from, taking a break, or exercising in the hope of a Eureka moment.”

Declan Morton, Copywriter.Declan Morton

“I’ve always enjoyed writing but I didn’t set up on my own account until 2019. At that point I had been teaching for nearly two decades and had become frustrated with the academy trust to which my then school belonged. I took a plunge and set up as a freelance writer.”

Jo Watson

“I wish we were all more honest when speaking to newer or younger copywriters and telling them what to expect in their career. It’s a hard job, it’s constantly evolving, and it’s still nowhere near as widely respected (as both an art and a science) as it should be.”
