YOU ARE THE MARKETING MANAGER OF YOU

RICHARD WEBSTER

COPYWRITER
FOUNDER – THE COPY SURGERY
I’m a writer. Specifically, I’m a copywriter.
I specialise in writing words for businesses to help them sell their products or services.
Having always wanted to be a writer I, naturally, studied engineering and working in the manufacturing industry for fifteen years.
I then worked in recruitment for another eight years.
Not an obvious career path for a copywriter, but it gave me the skills and experience of working with many different people.
During that time, I worked closely with sales and marketing departments where I realised I loved writing advertising and sales copy.
In my recruitment career, I learned how to write creative and compelling job adverts and worked with thousands of candidates, helping them market themselves.
In a particularly dark moment, I once worked out I’d reviewed over 100,000 CVs during my career!
I now run my own copywriting business called ‘The Copy Surgery’ where I write on a freelance basis for businesses in the UK.
