My name is Tony Lopes and I’m a writer, digital marketer and entrepreneur. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I’m half Portuguese and half Afrikaans – this strange combination is known as a Porikaner. We’re a tough, hard-working, fun-loving breed, prone to hardship, longevity and random bouts of good fortune.
I use words to motivate and move prospects, customers and my readers. If you’re one of these, thank you.
I’m a member of SAFREA (South African Freelancers Association) – please view my profile here.
Why use a freelance copywriter?
There are good reasons to use a freelance copywriter, some of them being:
- You don’t have time to write
- Freelance writers aren’t full time staff so your headcount and costs remain low
- Writing is a hassle you don’t want to deal with
- You want writing that is professionally written and edited
Why use me as your freelance writer?
I’m happy to say I’ve been freelance writing for years – it’s the type of job many people dream of and I’ve been lucky enough to have more than 15 years experience in writing for businesses.
The digital marketing skills I’ve picked up along the way include search engine optimisation (SEO), paid advertising (PPC), digital strategy, email marketing and social media marketing.
I’ve been working in competitive industries including online gaming, automotive and insurance – and as a result I work well under pressure.
I’ve got a good eye for detail and an imaginative mind. Combine this with an ability to write relevant copy that’s suited to different audiences, and you’ve got someone who can deliver the goods.
