The creative world is a crowded place. So why should you work with me? Here are 12 reasons.

• Over 25 years, I have a proven track record for helping business communicate to generate sales, attract customers, inform stakeholders, educate the public or persuade them to join their cause.

• I understand the power of words. As well as a copywriter I’m also a published author, speechwriter, and occasional contributor to several printed, digital and online publications.

• I’m a professional copywriter. I’m not a moonlighting journalist, frustrated novelist or failed poet. Words are what feeds the kids and keeps me in Haribo.

• I bring over three decades of business experience, working for and with companies of all shapes and sizes, from local start-ups to multinational corporations, both in the UK and worldwide.

• I’ve written about products and services in every business sector and interest area imaginable, from industrial pipelines to multi-million-pound private jets, ladies lingerie to diarrhoea tablets.

• Where possible, I prefer to quote a fixed fee at the outset which includes unlimited revisions. So, when it comes to settling your bill, you’ll know exactly how much you’re going to pay.

• I’m much cheaper than an agency and cost less than most freelance copywriters. Rest assured, by hiring me you won’t be subsidising plush offices, a fast car or a champagne lifestyle.

• I’ve collaborated with creative agencies, and am the preferred copywriter for several of them. if the professionals regularly rely on me, shouldn’t you?

• I must be reasonably good at what I do. Around 70% of my work comes through word-of-mouth – repeat business, client recommendations and agency referrals.

• I’m flexible. You can draft me in as and when you need to – reliable and powerful copywriting when you need it, no wages or overheads when you don’t.

• I have an ability to make the most complex seem simple, using plain, reader-friendly English. If I don’t understand it, how can I expect the reader to.

• I am equally at home talking to an operative on the shop floor or the CEO in the boardroom. Whether they’re wearing a suit or overalls, all of their opinions matter.

• I’m easy to work with. While I take my work seriously. I pride myself on not being prickly, precious, pretentious or a prat. No divas or creative luvvies around here.
