Joe Clarke • freelance website copywriter

Hey, welcome to this little corner of the internet! Make yourself at home.

Shall we do introductions? I'll go first:

I'm Joe - a freelance website copywriter.

Maybe even your freelance website copywriter! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I’m just excited you’re here, is all.

If you'd like to put a face to the name, I can go one better. Over on the right, you'll see me head to toe, being all deep and reflective.

Creatives, eh?

I write websites

Not the code. That stuff requires serious brains.

No, I write the words. Those special little things that make you you.

Don’t get me wrong, it still takes brains, but it also has a little extra sparkle and sizzle.

If you're looking for a website that's overflowing with jargon and comes with a free game of buzzword bingo, you might want to try somewhere else.

But if you're looking for a website that bubbles with personality, perfectly captures what your business is about, and does the heavy lifting of making your customers realise how bloody great you are...

Well, you're in luck. Those are the websites I write.

Words in the wild (an incomplete list of my work)

📹 Digital Converters

Digitising old media can be daunting, so Digital Converters needed a website that highlighted their reliability and compassion.

💡 workshops.work

Finding the magic ingredients that make workshops work and exploring new ways to facilitate collaboration.

🎞 Leon! Animations

We found a crystal clear way to write about Leo's simplicity-obsessed animation studio.

🥛 ReRooted

Plastic-free plantmilks in a circular system - that's proper planet-saving stuff.

What else do I do?

You might just want your website written. I like that - you're focused and firm-minded.

But you might want a few extra things done. I like that too - you're thinking big and up for doing something longer-term.

There are a few other projects I lend my words to; writing, editing, and consulting on:

Company values

Email sequences

So, whether you're after straightforward words for your website or a bells-and-whistles brand behemoth, it’s safe to say you've got some cool ideas and I really rather like you.

What's that?

How can I know I like you when we've not even spoken yet?

Well, if we work together, you can hear my origin story. It involves a chance encounter with a radioactive copywriter, a villain with a surprising past, and a coming-of-age narrative arc straight outta the Marvel Universe...

Client Testimonials

How nice are that lot?!

What it costs to hire me

I wish I could just put down a single, simple go-to price here, but I've done this for long enough to know that's just not how website writing works. It's too personal, too unique.

But every project has one thing in common - my level of focus, research, and commitment.

That's why I can't give you a set price, but I can share a minimum.

Website projects start at £1,800.

Ad hoc work is charged at £350 per day.

When you hire me, you're not just another job slapped onto an overloaded to-do list. I never work on more than two websites at once, so I can guarantee you're getting my expertise at its sharpest.

Can I do it for less?

Do I offer any deals or discounts?

I reserve a half-day each month for pro bono landing page reviews with charities.

How I run my business

I'm good at what I do, but I'm best at it when I'm not hunched over my laptop from 9 until 6 every day.

If I'm jumping between emails, Slack, social media dopamine hits, and every other pingy dingy thingy on my computer, I'm not going to do the great work you've hired me for.

So, I've got a few systems, processes, and checks and balances in place - for both our sakes.

👨🏻‍💻 How I work

I work in focused sprints of two or three hours, with long breaks in between.

I don't have regular daily working hours. Sometimes I'm out of bed and straight to it, sometimes I don't start until the evening.

But, I'm flexible. I'll always try my best to fit with your schedule, as well as my own.

📅 Workweek

I work for clients on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

📴 Time off

I take a week off every 7 or 8 weeks. It's for the good of my health and, consequently, my work.

I'll always let you know about any time off I've got planned well in advance. I'll also make sure our timeline for completing our project isn't affected.

🔐 Insurance

Dinghy reckon I'm a safe bet and have provided me with Professional Indemnity Insurance to the tune of £100,000. So, our work together is covered.

📧 Emails

I check my emails twice a day - when I start work and when I finish work.

📲 Calls

I'm a writer by trade and by nature, but I'm not going to block your number if you call me. If we work together, you'll find my phone number in our contract.

How you can reach me
