ABOUT ME(Or, why I'm the copywriter for you.)
I’m Lisa Rogers, the freelance copywriter behind Crystal Copy.
Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire, I write words that sparkle and sell for businesses and charities across the UK. Whether you need compelling copy for web or print, I can help you stand out, engage your audience and get the results you want.
Before I set up Crystal Copy…
I spent nearly 10 years working as a bid writer for charities large and small. My persuasive funding bids raised six figures for the National Deaf Children’s Society, Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust and others. And before that, I was at Cambridge University scrawling endless essays on topics like volcanic hazards and, er, Victorian dog snatching. (Yes. Really.)
But why hire me as your freelance copywriter?
Good question! Here are four big reasons:
1. You'll be in safe hands
I don’t just have a decade’s professional writing experience. I’ve also passed the Copywriting Apprentice course with distinction, and completed the intensive Recipe for SEO Success e-course. That means you can trust you’ll get quality copy that really works.
2. You can be sure I can write about your industry
Cambridge University taught me how to research and quickly grasp unfamiliar topics. Armed with these skills, a good brief and a Bourbon biscuit, I can write about any industry and subject you hurl at me. I’ve tackled bridging loans, precision engineering, youth suicide, transport policy, LED furniture and more. So whatever you need, I can handle it.
3. You'll get bang for your buck
Because I’m a freelancer, you won’t have to pay hefty agency fees. And working from my home office, my biggest overhead is a supply of those Bourbons. That means I can keep my rates reasonable, so you get better value for money and ROI.
4. You'll enjoy working with me (promise!)
I’m friendly and helpful. I never, ever miss a deadline. And rogue apostrophes or misused semicolons bring me out in a cold sweat. In other words, you’ll always get your copy on time, error-free and with a smile.
Not in Hertfordshire? Don’t worry. Thanks to phone, email and Skype, I can work with you remotely wherever you are.
When I’m not getting chocolatey crumbs all over my keyboard…
You’ll probably find me on a stage somewhere, belting out a show-stopper, toe-tapper or tear-jerker in the London Show Choir. Or desperately trying to finally touch my toes at Pilates.
