My name is Bethan Townsend.
I’ve been a freelance copywriter since October 2011.
I have written on a freelance basis, in some way or another since around 2006. Before taking that first step towards self-employment in 2011 I wrote for many publications on a voluntary basis, writing about everything from fashion to live commentaries during the Eurovision song contest.
I have a degree in English Literature and a desire to read as many books as is humanly possible before I die, both of which I believe contribute in some way to my creativity and the quality of my client work.
The best thing about my job is the variety of subjects I get to cover. I love it when some thing a little bit different comes up and working on topics which are new to me are especially welcomed.
Self-confessed research addicted copywriter
The research process is probably my favourite thing about copywriting. Lining up all the facts, figures and interpreting data to make it palatable, digestible and meet the client’s objectives is one of the most enjoyable (and frustrating) parts of the job. I love delving into archives and digging deep into facts and figures to deliver the content you need.
Creative freelance copywriting, from home
I work from home in Crosby so I can balance my job my family and am always available for new tasks and projects. My working hours are so flexible I can always fit in a little something extra and can work to deadlines, however tight they may be. Just ask and I’ll let you know whether I have the capacity, I usually find a way!
What others say
With 11+ years writing for others, I’ve had a fair bit of feedback from my clients, here are some of my favourites:
“Beth wrote around 600 product descriptions for our print and digital catalogue. Her creative descriptions of everything from food and drinks hampers to jewellery, toys and gift vouchers were perfect for our target audience. From receipt of brief, she turned around succinct, yet compelling copy well before deadline and her response time was fantastic. I’d recommend Beth’s skills in writing carefully crafted product descriptions”Dave Harland, Head Copywriter for Park Christmas Savings
Beth is a highly talented writer who is able to turn her hand to all types of copy and content writing. I have had the pleasure of working with Beth on several projects, and the quality of her work has always been second to none. Not only does Beth have a fantastic knowledge of a broad range of fields, but she also works quickly and efficiently, and her research skills are exceptional.Zoë Monk of Zoë Monk Copywriting
