Jamie Thomson is an Award-Winning Freelance Copywriter with Over 15 Years' Professional Writing Experience
From Queensferry Street Studios in Edinburgh, I write website copy, white papers, thought leadership articles, and SEO-focused content for clients in selected industries across the globe.
I’ve been writing professionally for over 15 years. I started out as a freelance journalist in 2008 and then founded an education website in 2011 (which I sold in 2021). I founded Brand New Copy in 2013, and after a couple of years’ working as an in-house freelancer with a creative agency in Aberdeen, I moved to Edinburgh. I shared a studio space with other creatives at Hill Street Design House, and in late 2019, we relocated to London Road Studios. And then in 2022, we moved to Queensferry Street Studios, where you find me today.
Queensferry Street Studios is where the magic happens. Brand New Copy is located in Studio 4, alongside five other creatives, including a small business marketer, a graphic designer, a web developer, and an SEO specialist. Having access to a modern studio really helps with the creativity and provides a space to meet with local clients.
How I Work
Before I begin any project, it’s important that I have a full understanding of what we’re looking to achieve. I’ll take the time to find out about your business, your audience, your competitors, and your project. Once we’ve agreed on the scope of work, I’ll create project milestones to ensure that all copywriting work is complete by the deadline date. I’ll provide an overview of how I intend to approach the project and in some cases, this will involve providing structures, outlines and skeleton drafts. One of my strengths as a copywriter is research (thanks freelance journalism) and I’ll ensure that all sources are properly cited, while providing you with original and unique copy. After sending the first draft, I take on all feedback and make any adjustments. Every piece of writing that leaves my outbox is reviewed, edited, and proofread to ensure quality and consistency.
Who I Work With
As a professional copywriter with over ten years’ experiences, I’ve developed several niches, mostly in the financial, technology and energy industries. However, I welcome clients from all sectors. If I’m confident that I can add value to your project, I’ll happily help. To see who I’ve worked with in the past, check out my copywriting case studies, or take a look at my portfolio. You can also see the industries that I specialise in on the Sectors pages. As I primarily provide copywriting and content marketing services, I also work closely with design, advertising, marketing, and inbound agencies.
