Jamie Thomson: Freelance Copywriter UK

‘Hi, I’m Jamie. I’m a UK freelance copywriter and the owner of Brand New Copy, a copywriting agency based in Edinburgh. When I’m not working as part of a team, I work as a solo freelancer, providing professional copywriting services to a range of clients over several industries. As well as having my own clients, I also work closely with creative agencies in the UK and abroad.’

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.

SEO Copywriting

SEO copywriting is the art of writing content that ranks well in search engines. Whereas SEO copywriting techniques improve the visibility of your content and draw people in, persuasive copywriting convinces them to stay on the page and fulfil a call to action.

Product Descriptions

A well-written product description does more than simply describe your product – it positions it in your marketplace and sells it. I can help you understand your target audience better and their motivations for buying from you.

Content Marketing

Content is the main reason that people use the internet. Whether we’re reading blog posts, watching videos or interacting on forums, when we turn our attention to the internet, we’re only after one thing. I’ll help you make the most of the content you publish.

A UK Freelance Copywriter With a Creative Head


I work with a range of private clients and creative agencies. I’ve worked on advertising campaigns for Glenfarclas whisky, the lifestyle brand Police and the University of Aberdeen. I also work with small companies and start-ups on a range of different projects from content marketing to SEO. I’ll find out what your business has to say and I’ll find a way to say it for you.


I write smart, persuasive copy that grabs attention, maintains interest and has the power to convert passers-by into paying customers. Oh, and I love a good story too. As any copywriter will tell you, storytelling is a powerful selling tool. I’ve written brand stories for international clothing brands, film companies, luxury watch brands, and creative agencies. I write engaging stories for the web, print, audio or video.

I’m proud to say that I still work with some of my very first clients today, producing consistently good results that offer a huge return on investment. I’ll make the effort to get to know you and your business, so that I can advise you on all matters relating to freelance copywriting, content marketing and SEO.

‘Wow!! Sent out the press release to a few people/events. So far a book store in the area is ordering her books so they can sell them (very popular book store). A teen literature festival in Texas is requesting her books and might have her as a featured author, and in Chicago, the Chiteen Literary Festival (this is the 1st year) wants to do a sit down interview with her. We feel so blessed. Had to share that with you. Thanks a lot…job well done! I will be using you again.’
