Copywriter Cardiff - Karly Edwards

Freelance Copywriter and Content Marketer

Summary

Hi, I’m Karly.

So, you’ve landed on my profile page because you’re looking for someone who can make your brand message sparkle.

Congrats! You’ve come to the right place.

 

I'm a copywriter who specialises in writing for the following industries: Technology, business and marketing, food and drink, renewable energy and pets.

 

Do you suffer from poor customer engagement and shocking lead generation levels? Are you struggling to get your prospects to take action?

Copywriting is the art of selling through words. It's an effective and proven marketing skill that compels your customer to buy from you. But you don't need me to tell you that! 

 

Most days you’ll find me sat at my wee desk writing results-driven copy for businesses, marketing and design agencies and non-profits all over the world.

In a word, I can help you shape and clarify a powerful brand story, whether you’re down the road or thousands of miles away. Ok, that was more than a word…

I don’t claim to be a guru with an all-seeing eye in the middle of my forehead. That kind of overused remark has B.S. written all over it. I simply use my on-point marketing and copywriting experience to create copy that works.

 

I’m sure all you want to do is get to the heart of what I’m all about and what I can really do for you.

Well, you decide if I’m a fit for you and your business...

 

I specialise in the industries mentioned above. But I’ve written for hundreds of organisations across beauty, ecommerce, recruitment, law and travel to name a few. What kind of results can I achieve for your business? Here’s what my clients say about my work.

I graduated with a Journalism degree many moons ago and headed straight into marketing for two fast-paced companies. Now with over 6 years’ experience, I get stuck into almost any type of copy or campaign strategy. I'm best known for delivering high-quality, lead-generating copy, on-time and on-budget. I've never missed a deadline. 

 

My ultimate mission means delivering the results you’re looking for – generating leads, building engagement with your target audience and increasing your bottom line.

If you're looking for a creative problem solver who generates powerful results through intelligent messaging, come talk to me. 

I don't just create copy to order. My approach is different. I get involved, I get to the heart of your goals and what you’re really hoping to achieve. That way I can find out what matters to you, and more crucially, your customers.

 

All you need to do is drop me a line and we're off.

Copywriter Testimonials

"Karly's help for getting the first Agile Cymru off the ground was invaluable, no request was too much and she had a great understanding of exactly what we needed. Without her help it's very doubtful we'd have turned over £60k including sponsorship in our first year. We invested £4,500 in her services, making the event not only viable but profitable and successful. We've engaged Karly's services for 2016 and for other side ventures and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

James Scrimshire - Agile Cymru

"Karly from the beginning was very clear about what she needed as subjects to write on. Her skills in copywriting has really resonated with our audience and in turn has really put our brand at the forefront of people's minds. I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about enhancing their brand - an absolute number one to use out there."

Matt Czastka - Clearsky Design 

"Karly is a great copywriter and creator. She took my idea for an ebook and gave it impact. Her writing is solid and concise so it's easy to read, but the data really resonates with the reader."

Jeni Harrington - Clientraction Inc 

"Working with Karly was a real pleasure, her professional but relaxed attitude was refreshing and effective. Karly is organised, polite and proficient which are essential qualities in marketing and event management. When working with Karly on a major event in London, she organised the promotional materials, branding and logistics of the event. During the build up her clear communication and articulate planning ensured all team members had a great understanding of the process, which led to a very successful event. I look forward to being able to work with Karly on future projects."
