About me

I'm Ellen, a Freelance Copywriter based in Sheffield. (I prefer Professional Word Person, but that's just a title I made up.) I pick the right words and put them in the right order to create copy that gets your readers to actually do something. Because it's not just about the words, is it? It's about delving into the minds of your customers. It's about using the words to create something marvellous that gets your customers to do what you want them to do. Whether you're looking for a story that sells, an email that engages, or content that converts, I'll craft copy that gets your readers to take action.
