A diverse portfolio. A proven track record. And clients that come back week after week.

Great copywriting is all about understanding you. Who are you? What’s your story? What makes your customers tick? Each piece of copy I write is bespoke: as individual as you and your brand.

I’ve got some great stories to tell. Stories that’ll show you how I’ve helped brands develop, grow their client base, and increase their revenue. I’ll chat to you about them when we meet. In the meantime, you can find a little snapshot below.

What do my clients think?

Many of my clients come back week after week, testament to the quality of my work. In fact, over 85% of my clients have returned with repeat business within two months of working with me. I’m pretty proud to say that.

Some of my clients have been kind enough to provide a testimonial. So you don’t just have to take my word for it that I’m good at what I do.

Who have I worked with?

I was fortunate enough to work for, and with, a diverse range of clients during my time at communications and advertising agencies. Clients I worked with included an international supermarket giant, a prolific global sporting retailer, various luxury travel brands, a household media provider, and a worldwide kitchen retailer. Click here, and take a look for yourself.

I’m bringing to Verat a wealth of experience, gained across a varied client base, as I build a trusted client portfolio of my own. Take a look below to see a selection of just some of the companies who value my experience, and already know and trust the services offered by Verat.

How do you fit in?

Experience gained with high-profile brands is invaluable. I’m proud to be able to list some worldwide household names on my CV. However, I love to help local businesses grow and develop. I’m delighted to be working with a number of SMEs and family-run firms, providing professional services at affordable rates – yet never compromising on quality.

WeddingHour

WeddingHour

I was asked by the team behind WeddingHour (the International Wedding Directory) to help them to launch their new website. I composed the mission statement devised to promote the directory’s launch to a global market, and copy-edited initial website content. I also researched, and wrote, features for the WeddingHour blog.

To support the team during busy periods, I also co-hosted #weddinghour: the weekly Twitter hashtag hour. I wrote and scheduled tweets that are still in use today; I also composed live responses to react to, and engage with, Twitter users worldwide.

#WetherbyHour

#WetherbyHour

I always enjoy working with Jo Maltby of Handpicked Local and #WetherbyHour.

We’ve collaborated on some great projects. Recently, we reported on up-cycler Max McMurdo’s visit to Thorpe Arch’s Decoporium (and spent the day with the man himself).

I’m also proud to have supported Jo, along with Mel Malcolm, through PR content for the Yorkshire Choice Awards.

I've worked with Laura on a number of projects, and she's amazing. Fully recommended.

Mulhern Media

I’m thrilled to be working with Ryan Mulhern, wedding videographer at Mulhern Media, on a new series of blog posts (soon to be live on his website).

Creating blog content using video footage, I’m proud to be providing the copy to support Ryan’s cinematic work.

I'm very impressed Laura - it's as if you were there!

Creative Shed Agency

Creative Shed Agency

The Creative Shed Agency team need technologically-accurate content, written after thorough research into their clients’ specialisms. I’m proud to say that they know and trust that I’ll take the time to understand the subject matter, and deliver the work to fit their clients’ deadlines.

I’m delighted to be working closely with Creative Shed Agency on a weekly basis. I create blog posts, newsletters, case studies and website content for a wide range of their clients. I also provide ongoing marketing support.

We have worked with Laura on a number of projects and we have always found her to be very professional, friendly, helpful and supportive. All her work is carried out to a high standard and she does everything that is asked of her efficiently. She works well as part of our team here and also independently. Laura doesn't just write up texts - she creates them in a way it should be done properly. We have no hesitation in recommending Laura to any business who needs the services of a copywriter.

The Wedding Affair

The Wedding Affair

The Wedding Affair team recognised a need to further promote their existing wedding fairs across Yorkshire and Lancashire. They appointed Verat to deliver the copy that sold to both industry suppliers and engaged couples alike.

I created email marketing campaigns to drive bookings, devised sales pieces to engage brides and grooms, and revised existing promotional copy.

I was also instrumental to the launch of a revised The Wedding Affair Blog. Solely responsible for initial content creation, I delivered an innovative content plan.

Soon after my involvement, the blog received its first ever award nomination: ‘Best Blog Newcomer’ in the prestigious, national, Wedding Magazine Blog Awards.

We have been extremely happy with the way you have taken responsibility for the blog and its content…thank you.

Lisa Hogg, Director

Memories Photography Selby

Chris, owner and photographer at Memories Photography Selby, wanted his website content to present both his professionalism and his fun personality.

Chris was keen to ensure that both experience and approachability shone through. Therefore, the copy needed to strike the balance between promoting Chris’ qualifications and capturing his friendly tone of voice.

I’m thrilled to be continuing working with Chris as he develops new services and photography courses.

Laura has managed to speak to my customers in a professional voice that captures my down-to-earth personality. It's as though she managed to get right inside my head! She’s used my voice to talk to my clients in my own way, and she’s been brilliant.

Chris Coupland, Owner & Photographer

Happy Tiers

Happy Tiers approached Verat to guide them through the launch of their bespoke occasion cake business.

Providing project management plans, social media schedules and delivering the copy to make their pricing structure engaging, I’m delighted to continue working with Happy Tiers as their business goes from strength to strength.

Laura was instrumental in the launch of my wedding business. Nothing was too much trouble, and she has continued to support me as my business has developed. I would thoroughly recommend Verat.

Beverley, Director

Award-Winning Attraction Management

Initially introduced through a third party, I’m proud to say that I quickly became this award-winning company’s preferred contact for their busiest periods.

I created the content for guides to UK-wide attractions, proofread vital documents, and received some lovely feedback.

Laura is always punctual, alert and ready to dive into action….she always completed an immense amount of research before starting something new and never flinched away from a request.
Laura is patient, helpful, and a problem-solver…a pleasure to work with.
