Filling a new website with quality copywriting that is both on-brand and emotionally intelligent was the problem facing AFEX. I was hired as AFEX’s copywriter to help solve this problem, define the communication needs of target audiences, refine the brand-messaging, write, and rewrite the copywriting for AFEX’s new website. The goal? Increase turnover substantially.

As part of a strategy review of the brand communications and the website, I helped define brand and solution USPs. I put myself in the position of target audiences and created a range of psychological profiles (personas) so that I could empathise with their needs, wants and fears. For the execution phase, I wrote and rewrote nearly 20,000 words that were deployed across the website, including all automated marketing touchpoints. All this copywriting required a sign-off by compliance, heads of departments and the global marketing director. A few minor comments and amendments meant the project was signed off rapidly.

Following the deployment of the new strategy across the website, AFEX enjoyed a healthy period of growth, with a 21.4% increase in turnover from £16.9 million to £20.5 million.

What they say?
“We’re very pleased with how the copywriting turned out. Thank you for all your help, your hard work and flexibility in delivering this project.”
