Writing Experience and Qualifications

All the writing will be done by me, Annabel Candy. I’ve got an MA in Design for Interactive Media from Middlesex University in London and nineteen years’ experience in writing for the Internet and designing websites. As a former journalist and freelance travel writer I’ve written for newspapers and magazines too, but I specialise in web copy writing, writing for search engine optimisation, ghost blogging and writing email newsletters.

Which means you can be sure that your web copywriting will be of the quality you’d expect.

I have a number of qualifications and a lot of experience in things that make me a good copy writer. Here are some of the things I’ve done that have helped make me the web copy writer I am today:

  • Studied literature at University – So I know how to organise and write copy that makes sense. I have a BA in French and English.
  • Qualified to teach English as a foreign language – So grammar, punctuation and spelling are strong points. I have taught English to adults and children in France, Laos, Zimbabwe and the UK.
  • MA in Design for Interactive Media –I’ve studied and written theses on the differences between how people read online and how they read print materials. I have an excellent understanding of the Internet and Web marketing and know how to write Web copy that people will actually read and act on.
  • Director of Immedia – The New Zealand website design company my husband and I set up and ran successfully for ten years before we moved to Costa Rica and then Australia. As a small business owner I understand what small businesses need and how they can use the Internet to their advantage. I also learnt how to write copy that sells both on websites and in email campaigns.
  • Blog Writer – It’s not just what you say but the way that you say it. Despite my 19 years of Internet marketing and website design experience I’ve learnt a lot the hard way and made plenty of mistakes. Now I know what to do and what not to do I can share that knowledge with you. As the founder of the successful travel blog Get In the Hot Spot blog writing is my super power.
  • Worked as Joint Managing Editor of Boulevard Magazine in Paris – I understand the importance of deadlines and know how to meet them.

I understand the need to work within your budget and will give you a fixed quote for the copywriting job before I start working with you. I won’t charge you for the work if you’re not happy with it. This has never happened and I don’t expect it to but if you don’t like the web copy writing I do for you then you won’t have to pay for it. Although of course you can’t use it either!

I enjoy a good working relationship with my clients. I take pride in my work and get most of my jobs through word of mouth recommendations and Google.
