More about Al

It's frustrating when long-overdue copywriting still sits in your to-do list. Fortunately, as a Cheltenham-based freelance copywriter I can help you get your copywriting informing, persuading and selling – online or in print...

Why do you want a freelancer?

If I could show you how a freelance copywriter could help you, you'd want my support wouldn't you? Do any of the following sound familiar?

  • You’re too busy to write urgently needed content.
  • Important deadline ahead – freelance copywriter wanted!
  • Want to add more services to your Gloucestershire web business?
  • You need the fresh perspective of an independent author.
  • Budgets are tight – you need an affordable fixed-fee freelance copywriter.
  • Cost-effective freelancer now – no overhead when the job’s done.
  • You urgently need SEO content – this freelance copy writer can help.

What could a reliable freelance writer do for you?

As you know, even if you can do the writing your business needs, hiring a freelance copywriter often makes sense and represents a great investment in your promotion.

Imagine having a reliable, commercially-focused copywriter on call – with all the advantages that only a freelancer can offer? A creative, experienced freelance copywriter to inform and persuade your customers, and emphasise the benefits that differentiate you. Your personal 'mini copywriting agency in Gloucestershire' if you like, to help your business make money and build its reputation.

You really should talk to me about freelance copywriting

Clients appreciate their local copywriter

Clearly, my experience can help you build your brand and business – whether in Gloucestershire or beyond the Cotswolds. In 2006 I became a freelance writer. Although I work selectively across the UK, most of my work is in Gloucestershire and surrounding counties.

What do satisfied clients with copywriting needs like yours say about my work? Read the client testimonials here.

No substitute for face-to-face contact

If you’re based in or near the Cotswolds, there’s an important reason for considering Gloucestershire's own copywriters. Clients facing content challenges like yours tell me there's no substitute for face-to-face contact – and how they value the attentive service and effective writing from an experienced wordsmith.

Imagine needing to brief your professional freelance copywriter in person. It’s Friday afternoon and you need to discuss a copy project that kicks off on Monday. Will distant freelancers be able to respond like someone in Gloucestershire? Possibly not. And even if they can, they’ll charge royally for their time and travel. As your on-call copywriter I usually won’t.

Different to other local copywriters?

Let’s start with my personality, writing style and unique experience in sales, marketing, technical writing, PR and copywriting. Combined with proven research ability, natural curiosity and a wide range of interests, it’s a solid foundation for your freelance writing partner with an extensive portfolio.

Whether you run a helicopter business or a construction firm, imagine the benefit of having this expertise and creativity on-hand... I wonder when you'll contact me to discuss some writing?

Writing for leading brands

It's a formula that's worked well for the different clients and wide-ranging assignments that I tackle. Since going freelance, my experience has grown as I've written for organisations as diverse as Toyota GB, Karndean International, Gloucestershire First, Airbus – and small Cotswold businesses.

Organisations like these simply don't trust just anyone for bought-in copywriting expertise. With such a broad selection of clients and sectors in my portfolio, you can be sure I’ve got the skills and experience your copy deserves. And whether you’re Airbus or a tiny Cheltenham start-up, the standard of writing and service is the same.

Before I was a freelance copywriter

Back to the experience you’ll come to count on.

Before becoming a professional writer, I worked in the following areas: sales and marketing in building products, construction materials, decorative garden products and packaging. Then I moved into technical writing (but not as a freelance technical writer) and copywriting before joining a technical PR consultancy.  I've even written the first novel we're all supposed to have inside us... How many freelance copywriters in Gloucestershire can offer all this? And how often has a copywriter actually worked in a technical sales role – so important for real understanding of benefit-focused selling? I have.

Hire me before your competitors do

Whatever you need a professional writer for, my skills can get vital copywriting off your to-do list. I'd like to show you what I can do for you.
