Who Am I ?
I am experienced
With over fifteen years of experience in marketing and working in a wide variety of industries, I am qualified and confident in my ability to communicate effectively with your customers and clients.
Why specialise in writing webcopy?
Because I love the challenge of writing in short form and communicating through the written word online. The results are immediate and I love nothing more than seeing my clients' webpages move up the search engine rankings and the bounce rates decrease once my copy has been published.
In late 2018, I was made redundant by the magazine I managed a subscription office for and decided it was time to follow my passion for writing full time. I brushed up on my grammar skills, and with my friends and ex-colleagues' encouragement, I became a freelancer, specialising in creating relatable copy for websites and blog posts. The gamble paid off, and WriteCopyNZ became a registered New Zealand Company in April 2019.
I am based in Christchurch but have lived overseas, and elsewhere in New Zealand. I am experienced in writing in American, British, Australian, and New Zealand English. E.g. Is it a candy, sweet or lolly? Do you organise or organize your company?
