WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
this copywriting and website design stuff?
Copywriting? It's about getting your words out there in your voice, in a way that makes a difference to you.
It's about illuminating. Highlighting. Persuading, convincing and encouraging.
Oh, and selling. Yourself, your values, your services. Whatever.
Now website design, well that's a fancy bonus. I can design it, write it and get you to the highest branches of any search engine tree.
Now as much as is possible, and using the fabulousness of technology, if I'm working for you, we'll meet. Hopefully face to face.
You see I can't be an accurate version of you or your business if I don't hear your voice, or get a glimpse of your personality. And I'm a born traveller (see right). I like to get out and about.
It's my job to step into your shoes and try you on for size - temporarily at least. Your quirks, your intonation, your lingo. My copywriting or website design should be like viewing a polished version of something you created. When you read it, you should feel like I've encapsulated your thoughts and laid them bare for you to peruse.

JAMIE AIRLIE : COPYEDITING
I got in touch with Shelley last summer to copyedit and proofread a book I had written. I was very impressed with the service provided. Shelley organised one to one meets to keep me updated on progress and to gain as much insight as she could. The final product was worth it. I am now in a position to publish my first book; this would not be possible without Shelley's help and input. Shelley has an infectious personality and a can do attitude, a rare combination. Although she has finished her work she is putting me in touch with a publisher and helping me to make contacts.
I would highly recommend Little Big Words.
Many thanks Shelley, I look forward to working with you again.
Shelley works from the Little Big Words studio in Hertfordshire. You're welcome to swing by any time for a chat about your copywriting or website design project and have a fancy beverage from the machine. We could even walk and talk. It's good for creativeness.
