Copywriting for the scientific and industrial markets involves more than creating content that engages, excites and persuades. It requires the ability to appeal to a wide variety of audiences, from the general public (B2C) to individuals with high levels of specialist knowledge (B2B).
I can create copy that helps you gain customers and close sales.
and other areas.
Have the knowledge, but not the words? Whether you’re an engineer, technician, scientist or business owner, I can edit your copy to ensure that it is clear and compelling and sends the message you want to the audience you desire.
Want to spread the news of a scientific breakthrough or share your fascination with astrophysics, neuroscience, medicine, nanotechnology, genetic engineering or artificial intelligence? I clearly explain complex scientific material without sacrificing accuracy, so readers can understand the science and appreciate its significance to themselves and to society. I tailor my writing to the target audience, from researchers and science students to the average person on the street.
As a talented communicator who has had a deep interest in science from an early age, I bring something to science writing that scientists who happen to write do not. I don’t have to rely on dull, jargon-filled writing to provide accurate information. I can create enthusiasm for science in any audience.
