    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

    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? Around £400 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.

    Freelance Middleweight | Copy & Content Writing = Art + Science | Compelling | Clear | Captivating | Creative | Converts | Travel + Many Other Topics | I’m Tracy, a Dorset-based Geordie. If you want your copy to tick all the right boxes, I’d love to help. I’ve crafted content for big brands, SEO agencies, charities, small start-ups, professional bloggers, and much more. My clients are based in the UK, the US, Europe, Australia, and beyond. So switching between UK and US English is second nature. As is adopting - and honing - the right tone of voice (TOV) to suit your target audience and brand identity. Variety is the spice of my working life. I’ve written about everything from accountancy, insurance, and money to clothing, food, lifestyle, parenting, travel, and more. Once I'd created multiple 200-word product descriptions for continence pads, I found that nothing really fazed me... I have over five years of professional copywriting experience under my belt, and it all began with my own blog. So I know my way around WordPress and social media. Since then, I’ve written for all sorts of specialist websites, including a ton of travel sites. As well as many other commercial enterprises. In the business, I’m what we call a middleweight copywriter. Experienced enough to mean you’re in safe hands, yet fresh enough to ensure creativity and continuous learning. Here’s what I can do for you - and have already done for many contented clients: Ghostwriting Update old content Draft press releases Publish regular blogs Hone your tone of voice Tell compelling MSN stories Put together engaging emails Give AI writing the human touch Find keywords for SEO purposes Pen product descriptions that pop Upload posts and pages to WordPress Create landing and sales pages that sell Perfect those social media profiles and posts Compose ads, brochures, leaflets, and posters Write awesome long-form, fact-packed, well-researched articles As well as a whole lot more. I’ve even been known to write poetry and a novel in my spare time. My trio of blogs on food, music, and UK travel also see me waxing lyrical about my own interests. What else? A few fun facts about me, perhaps. I’ve been around the world twice, and I have a lifelong obsession with the band INXS and their Australian homeland. I also have lexical-gustatory synaesthesia, which means that words and names have flavours for me. Well, it all makes the working day more interesting… How about you? If you don’t know what stop words are and why they matter, or how to hide keywords for both flow and SEO, then you don’t need to. All you should know is that I can create compelling, clear, captivating copy that also converts. If you find content writing a real chore, I can save you lots of time and stress. Words come naturally to me, which means two things. I love what I do - and I don’t waste any of the time you're paying for when getting on with the task. Interested?

“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.”
