My copywriting career began in the late 1980s working with one of the most successful advertising agencies in the North of England, based in Leeds. I went on to work as a specialist direct marketing copywriter for the biggest independent advertising agency outside London followed by a long session as the in-house freelance copywriter for one of the UK's most prominent and respected direct marketing agencies, based in Bradford.
On top of this I've freelanced for other top UK direct marketing agencies and, more recently as a freelance copywriter, I've worked direct with my own growing client base of smaller UK businesses and SMEs. Today I have a substantial base of clients ranging from small design studios and advertising agencies to a broad spectrum of businesses, many of whom have been with me for years.

... plus a vast range of other businesses from sole traders to small and medium enterprises.
A good ninety-per-cent of my business is repeat-business, and many of my SME clients have been with me for several years.
I get it right first time, so you don't have to pay for re-writes. On top of this, my copywriting works, so it pays for itself in terms of business growth.
I charge by the hour or project, whichever suits you. I also tend to write quickly, which means you get more hard-working content for your money.
