What is a copywriter?
A copywriter writes the text (copy) for the purpose of advertising or other forms of marketing. In other words, a copywriter is a salesman in print.
A copywriter gets you (business owner/professional) a potential client to take a specific action whether they are making a purchase or subscribing to your email list.
Why hire a copywriter?
Owning a business is hard work and when it comes writing your own marketing material, it requires time, effort and skill in persuasive writing. You’ll find that hiring a copywriter will save you time, money and headaches.
Why hire a freelance copywriter?
Some advertising agencies outsource a copywriter which means that you’ll be paying more as a result of mark-up fees. In other words, hiring a freelance copywriter will not only fit into your budget but you’ll get more copy for less money without sacrificing quality. You can’t lose.
What is SEO?
It’s the acronym for Search Engine Optimisation. SEO is basically the process of boosting the online visibility of a website or a web page.
Why hire an SEO copywriter?
Every business aims to be on page 1 of Google. As the saying goes: “the best way to hide a dead body is on page 2 of Google”. The quote is a tad on the outlandish side but it just emphasises that page one visibility is key.
An SEO copywriter analyses, reviews and implements changes to a website so they are optimised by way of improving its rank on Google, thus producing more customers. Just to be clear, we are talking about improving rank organically i.e no pay per click ads. You’ll find that SEO copywriters will not guarantee page 1 placement overnight but the techniques applied will improve a website’s rank over time.

Does a copywriter need to have an accreditation?
No. The copywriting industry is one of the few industries that does not have a formal accreditation body recognised by Australian training authorities.
Copywriters are hired because we create great ads, not because we have a degree in marketing or in creative writing.
Have you completed a copywriting course?
Yes, I have and I’m happy to provide details upon request.
Why don’t you have a portfolio?
As a newly established copywriter, I’m still building up my portfolio. Of course, I’ll be updating my site as work becomes available but like every copywriter, you have to start somewhere.
Before copywriting, what did you do for work?
During my 14 year career, I worked in various roles of various industries where I was promoted in almost every job I held.
