I write Content and Copy that Inform and Sell

"Apparently no one reads anymore, that's enough reason to make words count."

my writing - a long, short story
I started writing on digital platforms way back in 2006 for an online Blog subsidiary of ITWeb called My Digital Life. My writing began as random babblings about current events, which later morphed into technology reviews. Eventually, I realized I have a knack for writing, and I can describe complex things well and keep readers captivated, entertained and informed, which is very difficult in our digital age.

I stopped writing officially in 2010 when I fell victim to social media and online forums; the ease of not worrying about spelling, short descriptions for complex things, and the general minute to minute interaction these platforms offered were appealing.

Fast forward to 2017, I committed myself to taking up writing again, but this time with a more focused approach. Today, I am a contributing editor for the SA Instrumentation and Control magazine, read by thousands in the Manufacturing Industry.

In 2020, I landed a job as a Content Writer in the marketing department of a leading IoT startup in South Africa - IoT.nxt. It was fast-paced, results-driven, and required constant creativity; this was right up my alley. Interestingly, one year and six months felt like four years because the learning curve was steep, and the content and copywriting changed every week; there was always something new I had to write. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic time! The expertise and creativity within that marketing department have exponentially improved my ability to write compelling content.

So, in 2022, I decided to be brave and go at it alone - freeLANCE if you will. Whether it's content or copy, just informing or generating leads, I write to captivate, inform, and sell.

Content Writer - IoT.nxt

From November 2020 to March 2022, I wrote all content for the marketing department of the fastest growing IoT startup in South Africa - IoT.nxt. So I understand how my written words fit into the marketing process, from idea conception to generating quality leads. I formulated content and copy for various channels, including webpage, blogs, technical articles, product descriptions, animation scripts, White Papers, internal and customer newsletters, case studies, brochures and Use Cases. Writing at IoT.nxt sharpened my virtual pencil and prepared me to be word-ready for any writing task.

Training that shape and mould.

With no formal training, I make up for it with tons of creativity, and I've completed courses from the best in the business, such as Alan Sharpe's 25-hr Copywriting Masterclass and Coaching. Also, Tamsin Henderson's Complete Copywriting Course on writing and selling like a pro. These courses have changed the way I view words forever, and I am confident they will enable me to help prospective customers convey their messages and sell more products.
