I'm Bev Osborne, a freelance copywriter based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Over the past 27 years I've been providing powerful copywriting services for businesses of all shapes and sizes across Leeds and further afield. A good 95-per-cent of my business is repeat business. In other words, if you're looking for an experienced Leeds-based copywriter who knows all the tricks of the trade that generate extra sales and build brand loyalty then you've come to the right place.
My history as a copywriter goes back to the late 1980s when I started out as a junior copywriter for one of Leeds' leading advertising agencies: Headingley-based BRAHM. At this early stage I was trusted with brands like Bradford-based Wendy Wools, BT and even the odd bit of copywriting for Porsche.
After BRAHM I went on to work as a 'fully fledged' copywriter for other well-known Leeds advertising agencies such as Poulter plc (near Leeds city centre) and Charles Walls (Calverley) working on a vast range of top-name brands from Lada Cars, Bass and National Breakdown to Trebor Bassett, Northern Rock and Sharp Electronics.
Throughout the second half of the 1990s I worked as a freelance copywriter for direct marketing agencies in Leeds and Bradford - people like Direct Relations, RP&F and Judith Donovan's, copywriting for brands like BT, Halfords, Thomson Holidays, Stanley Tools, the Royal Mint and Parcelforce - plus local businesses Damart (Bingley) and the Bradford & Bingley building society. Then in the late 1990s I began to build up my own client base of small and medium businesses and today, in 2017, my freelance copywriter business - Creative Copy Copywriting Services - is stronger than ever.
As a copywriter I consider myself to be incredibly fortunate to live in Leeds, a city with a strong history of world-class advertising agencies boasting blue-chip clients. Leeds is where I learned my trade. Now, as a freelance copywriter based in Leeds, I work for small and medium businesses (SMEs) from all over the UK, not simply in Yorkshire. You can read what many of them say about my copywriting on my testimonials page.
Another great thing about being a Leeds-based copywriter is that it's so easy to get to clients in other parts of Yorkshire. For example I freelanced for Portakabin in York for a number of years and one of my regular clients is based right at the very edge of West Yorkshire in Saddleworth, near Oldham.
I've also won a number of advertising awards over the years. One of the most memorable award ceremonies was the Yorkshire Publicity Association Awards where I was presented with an award for copywriting on a campaign for Sharp Electronics.
