I specialise in financial copywriting and content writing. But I’m very versatile and can handle a wide range of copywriting, content creation, marketing and editorial assignments across many different sectors. The word-cloud below covers most of these.
Website Copy and Content Writing
If you work for a large business, I’ll write copy for you that hits the mark and is on-brand. If you work for a small business, I’ll write copy for you that helps your business to grow.
If you’re looking for someone to write compelling copy for your business – always written with SEO in mind – rest assured you’ve come to the right place.
I’ll write high quality, Search Engine-friendly blogs for your business. These will engage your target audience and help improve the ranking of your website on Google.
I can either write one-off blogs for you, if that’s what you need – or if you’re after a series of blogs, I can do that too.
Social Media Posts
If you need high quality, impactful posts for your business on LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter, I can write these for you. I use all 3 of these platforms extensively. There are a few rules and conventions you need to follow to get the most out of your posts on each platform.
Here are my top tips for writing better LinkedIn posts: https://www.bishopsgatecopy.co.uk/top-tips-for-better-linkedin-posts/
I’m not only a copywriter, but write in-depth magazine-style features as well. Having been a magazine editor and journalist, I know what it takes to produce interesting and engaging feature articles.
If you’re looking to hire a freelance writer to produce longer pieces I can help. Just outline for me what you’re looking to have written and by when you need it.
Company Annual Reports
I offer an Annual Report writing service for businesses. Working closely with your in-house comms team, I will interview Board members and members of your senior management team, as required, to get their perspective on the company’s performance and business highlights during the year. I will then write up their contributions in whatever format is required, so that these are ready for you to cut and paste into your annual report.
I can also write up any business updates, economic background and ESG content required for your annual report.
Business Leader Interviews
If you need interviews conducted with senior figures in your business for a magazine feature, this is my speciality. I know what makes for a good interview. I have many years of experience framing effective interview questions designed to draw out the best responses.
If you need great photos taken of the interviewees, I work with talented Sevenoaks-based photographer Russell Harper https://www.harperphotography.co.uk/
If you’re starting a new business, I can help you to prepare your Business Plan. A well-written plan will help you to secure any financing you may need to get your business off the ground. I have an edge here over most other copywriters, as I used to be a commercial banker. So I know what banks are looking for when they review your business plan.
Copy Editing and Proofreading
I provide a copy editing service. This means I’ll check your document and address any grammar, spelling, style or punctuation issues. I’ll also fix any problems I come across with transitions, wordiness and jargon. My mission is to ensure that the style and presentation of your piece is fit for purpose.
I also provide a proofreading service. Send me your nearly finished writing project after it has been edited, laid out and designed, and I’ll give it a final check to ensure there aren’t any typos or other gremlins that everyone else has somehow missed.
I always welcome the opportunity to work with international brands. Let me know how I can help you. Perhaps you have some content that’s been translated into English….but not very well. If so, I can give it a “polish” for you. I’ll turn it into clear, perfect English prose.
UK Localisation Service
For businesses outside the UK which want to sell products or services in the UK I offer a UK localisation service. I can take your website content, product manual or any other type of text document and adapt it for the UK market. This ensures that to your target audience it appears to have been written by a local. This is very important because it builds trust and confidence.
