Introducing Perth Copywriter, Rhonda Chapman
Based in Rockingham, Western Australia
Hi, I'm Rhonda Chapman and I began accepting assignments from Australian businesses in early 2011 after I got bored writing for the same topic day in, day out. By 2014, I was getting so much client work that I had to quit my day job to dedicate all my time to these clients.
The bonus was I would be writing a variety of topics, which meant my life was no longer boring.
Since 2002, all of my roles have involved writing, public relations, and marketing. I started as a qualified journalist and then after some time I wanted to add marketing into the mix (specifically marketing research, consumer psychology, consumer behaviour, and marketing strategy). So, I returned to university to study just that.
I now have a Postgraduate Diploma of Commerce (Marketing), a Certificate in Public Relations and Events Management, and a Bachelor of Communications (Media Studies).
Over the years, I've gathered a lot of practical experience as a journalist, copywriter and certified marketer. I have spent many years helping businesses to attract, engage, convert and retain their ideal customers. I've also worked with them to help raise their brand profiles, manage their online reputation, and get free publicity.
This unique combination of knowledge, skills, experience and confidence helps me to do a lot more for you than many other copywriters could ever do.
And, unlike many copywriters, I care enough to make the time to speak with you to discuss your needs and desires.
What I do
I work with you to help create more business through effective copy and content:
I offer copy creation services to help you make more money. I do this by writing what you need for all your marketing, public relations, and sales needs, whether that's for your website, landing page, advertorials, social media profiles, press releases, newsletter, emails, or offline promotion.
I offer content creation services to help you entertain, educate and retain your customers. I do this by writing what you need for your blog, videos, podcast, presentations and more.
I offer consultation, content planning and training (e.g. how to blog, how to use MailChimp and how to use emails to grow your business). I guide you, so that you can achieve more sales with copy, plus benefit from having an online presence and gaining free publicity.
I write for businesses of all sizes and across all industries.
What I don't do
I don't specialise in proofreading. We can hire a professional proofreader if you'd like a second pair of eyes to review what I write before you publish it.
The best copywriters focus on what they do best, which is to tell the right story the right way to get the prospect to say "Yes!" to your offer. That's my job.

Stuff I love

I enjoy offline networking, and enjoy cop and lawyer shows. I love reading John Grisham and Stephen King, and when not writing I enjoy listening to progressive trance, and soft reggae.
