Behind the Business: Vanessa Jones

Copywriter + content writer + author + marketer.

I am a talented professional copywriter with nearly a decade of copywriting experience. I also offer content/SEO writing, creative coaching and marketing services.

Experienced, award winning and professional copywriter.

Not only am I an experienced and award winning copywriter but I have also worked as a marketing manager and as a publicist and copywriter for marketing agencies – so I know the machinations of how marketing works and how to make your marketing department/campaign shine.  I have worked for marketing agencies, not for profit organisations and as a freelance writer and there has always been a common thread: I love writing.

I’ve also studied professional writing, positive psychology, philosophy and am a qualified yoga teacher – so not only do I know a lot about writing but I know a lot about people too!

My unique ability to capture your perfect essence and tone will position you or your business at the forefront of your industry. With a powerful mix of marketing experience, psychology study and exceptional writing skills, I’m your “go to” copywriter for compelling copy.
