Freelance Writer
Helen Watson

As a copywriter, my job is to help increase your turnover and maximise your sales by helping you engage with
prospective customers or clients who need your products and services.

This is achieved by building brand awareness through the words, or ‘copy,’ you use on various marketing and
advertising materials. This could be an advert, your website, an article, a press release, a blog post or even
a product description or the instructions on some packaging. Once you have their attention, converting an
enquiry to a sale is far more likely.

Helping businesses to find the best words.
