Confused about copywriting?

Unsure of what to say?

Know what you want to say, but don’t know how exactly to say it?

Think how much easier your job would be if there were someone to find the right words for you…

The Original Wordsmith is an award-nominated copywriting, SEO and digital content company founded by me, Lauren Dyckes. I’m a professional freelance copywriter with over 15 years of practical marketing knowledge.

Based on the border of Surrey and West Sussex, I help individuals and small to mid-sized businesses that value honesty, jargon-free conversation, and clear results.

I offer a more personal relationship than a large copywriting agency, greater accountability, and absolutely no marketing waffle!

The Original Wordsmith is a far better choice than a copywriting agency – here’s why…

I’m not a copywriting agency. I don’t believe in the hard-selling agency approach and I won’t push my services onto you.

I’ve got a great bunch of clients that I love working with. It makes what I already love doing even more enjoyable. I’m friendly and approachable but I’m also honest and open – if I don’t think we are the best fit I will let you know upfront so that you can find the right person, with the most passion for your project.

I can’t stand unnecessary marketing jargon – I would rather just explain things in a straightforward manner. It’s my mission to demystify SEO and make it easy for you to understand. I just keep my focus on delivering results you will be over-the-moon about. I judge my success against that of my clients, and I like to be successful – and that means I want your projects to be successful too.

You can find out more about who I am and what makes me tick both inside and outside of the office on my about page. If you think we’re a good fit, then please contact me .

What else makes me a better choice than a large marketing or copywriting agency?…

I work on a freelance basis and don’t claim to be a large marketing or copywriting agency, but I do guarantee to offer the exceptional standard of service that you would expect from one. In addition:

  • You will never be invoiced for unforeseen extras

    I don’t believe that ‘project management’ should ever be invoiced for. Surely project management should be part of the service and not an added extra? Tea and biscuits come as standard too and will certainly not be factored into your quote.

  • It’s a two-way street

    I hope you will want to work with me and I would like to think we would have some fun along the way, but the most important thing is that I am able to support and add value to your business. I will never partner with a new client unless I am confident that I can make a valuable contribution.

  • A more personal relationship

    The person you meet initially (me) is the person who will be working on your project. There’s no meeting an expert but then being passed to an agency junior to carry out the actual work.

Who do I work with?

I predominantly work with individuals and small to mid-sized businesses, but I also help larger brands that prefer a more personal service. Being Surrey-based, I typically work with nearby clients in Surrey and West Sussex London, but there are no geographical limitations to who I can work with – my furthest client is in Singapore.

Don’t be fooled into thinking you need to work with a large marketing or copywriting agency to get the best results. As someone who has been employed by marketing agencies, and who has outsourced projects to them myself, I can confidently say that working more closely with my clients has been significantly more beneficial for both parties – the level of accountability and communication is simply far greater.

Working with The Original Wordsmith offers fun and creativity with a serious side. You will get original ideas and a unique perspective, but I’m a serious professional and I’m passionate about delivering a better service and better results than my competitors.

What’s in it for you?

  • Copywriting & marketing support

    I’m only ever a phone call or an email away.

  • Content that delivers measurable results

    I don’t just write pretty words. I write words that attract, convert and sell – and I prove it too.

  • More value for your budget

    I’m not an agency, so there are no inflated agency overheads to worry about – that’s good news for me and great news for you!

  • Greater online visibility

    More website hits result in more sales for you. I know how to make it happen. Just watch me…
