Copywriting and editing in London, UK

The write stuff
"That's all we have, finally, the words, and they had better be the right ones, with the punctuation in the right places so that they can best say what they are meant to say. ...if the words are in any way blurred-the reader's eyes will slide right over them and nothing will be achieved."
Raymond Carver.

London, UK copywriting professionals
Bad copy will reflect on your company. Mistakes or poor punctuation and grammar will give the impression of incompetence. At a fish in sea we understand images and graphic design, but we also have a healthy respect for the power of words. Copy needs to be persuasive. Your copy is an effective marketing tool that not only needs to attract audiences but hook them into making a sale or choosing your service. Effective copy generates trust and develops a bond with the reader, providing them with the information or knowledge they require succinctly and effectively.
