Hi! I'm Thom.
After years of working in-house for various start-ups in London, I decided to become a full-time freelancer. It's safe to say that was the right decision. In the last four years, I've accepted copywriting contracts from clients such as Google, Lola, Nordimark, Nightwatch, Battlecat! Studios, QliQ, Proper Sky and Clickwolves. No matter if I'm writing fresh copy or rewriting pre-existing words, or proofreading material and editing it, I ensure the content I'm overseeing is watertight.
Am I trustworthy? Definitely. I'm an accredited member of The Professional Copywriters' Network, plus I run the copy-centred Slack channel "Cargo". I also discuss client projects and other writing (ad)ventures over on my blog.
I’m a writer — in all senses of the word. I’ve also written non-fiction articles, reviews, and pieces for a wide array of venues, including multinational newspapers and websites. I have been lucky enough to have had my work published in: The New Statesman, The White Review, The Quietus, The Huffington Post, The London Economic, and more. Medium is also used from time to time.
I've worked with some stellar clients; it's hard not to namedrop. Seeing as it's a requirement, though, here's a handful of high-profile clients I've been fortunate enough to collaborate with.
I helped out with improving Google's voice-recognition software. It involved words, surprisingly enough. (More to come soon...)
From the makers of KAYAK comes Lola — intelligent software for business travel management staff and their colleagues to help quell the stresses of business travel. I wrote multiple pieces for Lola — internal blog posts, how-to guides, and sales copy — to help drive customers to Lola’s website.
Nordimark is a digital agency that deploys professional, working marketing solutions. Although the team is based across the globe, I’ve been directly helping the CEO, Jonathan, with delivering quality content to a number of businesses firmly rooted in the tech sector. As a copywriter for Nordimark, I’ve been using every tool in my toolbox to create and curate accessible, enjoyable, and profitable content.
I adored writing advertisement scripts for this East London animation studio. For my first project, I wrote about the history of hats for a campaign with Philip Tracey x Fenwick. In our second collaboration, I wrote about beer-brewing hipsters using Property.Works to find a commercial warehouse.
I'm currently working on Proper Sky's brand new site with their CEO, Jim Smith, who initially wrote the copy himself. We're working tirelessly to ensure the updated, flashy website is chock full of interesting content. From eye-catching sales copy to informative blog posts, I've been utilising my writing skills so that this great MSP attracts the right kind of client.
Nightwatch.io is a state-of-the-art SEO tracker. This nifty app can do the work of ten people all by itself! I wrote about how Nightwatch compares to the other SEO trackers out there (from the likes of Moz and Majestic), and just how brilliant it is overall. Really, it's one to watch out for.
Zane at Clickwolves LLC contacted me to write web copy for his attorney marketing business, Breakthrough Legal Marketing. After working together and finally settling on a tone we thought would be effective, I penned pages of engaging web sales copy for them in addition to SEO-focused blog posts.
AUMI4 has been one of my more recent clients. I worked closely with Olga, the owner of AUMI4, to create a tailored email-letter series to ensure that subscribers will click the links, view her products, and ultimately put one of Olga’s artisanally-crafted bags through the checkout. We aligned her vision with my practical wordsmithery to dramatically increase product sales. And the results speak for themselves.
Who are GotPrint, exactly? The key is in the name. They're an online printing service which can print just about anything you can imagine. Posters, postcards: you name it. They'll magic it into existence. For GotPrint I wrote a series of articles letting the world know about the wonder that is GotPrint.
