Jamie Thomson: Copywriter in Edinburgh

‘Hi, I’m Jamie. Delighted to make your acquaintance. I have over 12 years’ professional writing experience and I’m Director of Brand New Copy, based here in Scotland’s capital. When I’m not working as part of a team, I work freelance for clients from all over the world in a range of industries. I also work closely with creative agencies.’

Web Copywriting

Your website copy needs to grab your prospects’ attention, keep them interested, make them want what you’re offering and get them to take action. I write effective website copy that gives you a great return on your investment.

White Paper Writing

Good white paper copywriting raises awareness, solves problems and helps guide people towards making decisions. They’re a great way to demonstrate authority and can be an effective lead generation tool. 

Thought Leadership Articles

Authoritative content can help establish you as a leader in your industry. From content strategy to corporate journalism, my copywriting can improve your brand authority.

SEO Copywriting

Google’s algorithms may constantly evolve, but on-page SEO best practices remain constant. Search Engine Optimization remains one of, if not the best digital marketing strategy for long-term business growth.

Edinburgh Freelance Copywriter with Clients All Over the World

If you’re looking for copywriting in Edinburgh, I can help you with that. I’m based at London Road Studios, bordering Edinburgh’s old and new town. I work with several Edinburgh-based companies, handling their written communications and helping to grow their brand. And of course, if your business is located further afield, in say, Europe, the U.S., the Middle East, Australia, or Asia, I can help with that too.

How I Work

When you hire me as your Edinburgh copywriting partner, you gain a valuable team member who will take an invested interest in your business. I make the effort to get to know your compnay from the inside out. Being freelance, I’ll often have an outside perspective of your business that can bring new insights into how you deliver your key messages. I’m proud to say that I still work with some of my very first Edinburgh freelance copywriting clients today. And they still value the work I do for them after all these years.


Every project begins with an initial conversation. If you’re in Edinburgh, then great, I’ll come to yours, or vice-versa. And if you’re unreachable by Lothian Buses, then we can chat over the phone, or through Skype. Once I have all the details of your project, we would agree on the brief.  I’d then send you a proposal with a breakdown of my costs. We’ll agree a project schedule and I’ll get started. I’ll make every effort to keep you in the loop every step of the way and I’ll take on board all feedback.
