Hi my name is Paul Raftery,
I am a professional writer, web designer and author based in Southend on Sea, Essex, working for a number of clients both in the UK and abroad. Over the past several years, I have also enjoyed living and travelling in Southeast Asia spending time working on my latest book, A Learning Curve, available now. Noble Wordsmiths mostly focuses on writing services for our clients. However, I also offer fully developed and produced marketing materials with a little help from some associates.
As a copywriter, I write not only professional, compelling copy that persuades your customers to buy; I also produce writing that engages all types of readers at any age. I continually receive praise for my "mad skills", “excellent turn of phrase” and my “warm and friendly but professional” approach to my writing.
As a full-time freelance writer myself, I’m always proofreading and editing my own work, but it’s surprising how a mistake can still slip through. As the writer, sometimes I’m just too close to a piece of text to be able to evaluate it properly. That’s where proofreaders and editors show their true value. They are the fresh pair of eyes who see what is on the page and not what you, the writer, expects to see.
My experience as a copywriter allows me to write engaging and compelling website content, online and print advertising, journalistic blog posts, travel writing, articles written with SEO in mind and social media campaigns that implement sales orientated copy that engages your customers.
Apart from my copywriting, proofreading and copyediting services, I also specialise in Email Marketing, Email Response, Digital Advertising and Web-Design; however, as a company, we take on full promotional campaigns incorporating any or all of the above.
My freelance setup gives me the opportunity to offer a personal approach that allows me to work in close collaboration (if required) with my clients to produce effective copy and products that get results. Many of my clients like to think of me as an extension of their workforce, coming in to pick up the slack when people are sick, on holiday or simply during busy periods. Others think of me as a friend who promotes their business, website, event and so forth.
Since I am but a humble writer, I often consult and collaborate with other professionals in similar fields, when working on your campaigns:
The usual suspects:
Tracey Gurney – Graphic Designer and founder of Hilaris Designs.
Aaron Jennings - Photographer at Aaron Jennings Photography & Imagery
Gareth White - I.T. Consultant at Sapphire Computer Systems
Travis Prichard - Artist
Ross Martin – Social Media Consultant at Chez Vision Marketing LTD
