How satisfied are you with your website?
If you’re totally happy, congratulations! You probably don’t need this book.
But if there’s a nagging doubt or you could be happier, maybe some of these ring true?
Fed up – of going around in circles as you try to articulate what you offer
Stuck – the words you need have a habit of escaping you
Embarrassed – you cobbled together some words even though writing isn’t your strength and you cringe every time Google Analytics say someone’s on your site
Adrift – things change, the business you started isn’t the business you run. Your website copy doesn’t align with your work now
Uninspired – perhaps your search rankings are great, but your website doesn’t have much soul. The words don’t ‘spark’ anything in you and you’re worried that’s true for prospects too
Frustrated – that the enquiries you receive from your website are poor quality, or your ideal clients aren’t contacting you at all
I get it! Not only have I heard this from clients over and over, I’ve been there myself. Things changed when I nailed my message and sorted my website.

How this book came about
In seven years as a copywriter, I’ve written for many different businesses in the professional services sector. Over that time, I’ve realised that these B2B service businesses have unique copywriting needs.
Yet the vast majority of marketing literature is geared towards product-based and B2C businesses.
Even the content aimed at B2B service businesses tends to be focused on large organisations.
The job done by professional service providers, like you and I, is fundamentally different to that of a B2C company. It’s not the same as a B2B behemoth either. And so, the writing needs to be different too.
If you Google ‘how to write your website content’, you get 1.86 billion results.
For someone who’s not a marketing professional, nor a writer, even a cursory glance is overwhelming. You’d have to spend a long time scouring that list to find something tailored to companies like yours.
Narrow the parameters and a search for ‘how to write your B2B website content’ throws up almost 20 million results.
The links and articles that appear are littered with false friends.
On the surface they seem to be about B2B website copywriting.
Dig a little deeper and they talk in broad brushstrokes or go off on tangents, such as web design, advertising strategy, content creation, SEO… all useful and relevant in their own right. However, it’s a lot of background noise to filter for someone who wants a website that does them justice and, er, shock-horror, actually wins them some business.
I needed to act.
I couldn’t find the information I wanted, so I decided to write it myself.
This book is designed to equip independent professionals with the know-how to write their website content. Website content that doesn’t simply do the job, but works hard.
Website content that’s clear, direct and informative.
Website content that speaks to the people you want to work with.
Website content that persuades those people to do business with you.
I want to give you the tools you need to write a website you are proud of. A copywriting guide written specifically with consultants, contractors, freelancers, and companies-of-one in mind.
The outcome? You’ll have a website that is everything you’d expect from a professional service provider. Not a B2C gimmick in sight.
Expect writerly craft backed up by clear, B2B-sales-driven thinking, no-nonsense advice, and essential how-tos for writing your B2B website content.
I’m on a mission to ensure that no consultant, contractor or company-of-one is left behind.
You’ll get knowledge that you can apply in the real world, a helpful tool that you can thumb through time and time again. Essentially, this book gives you access to the best parts of a specialist B2B copywriter’s brain, with none of the Zoom meetings.
This book contains everything I know about writing B2B websites.
Connect to your clients.
Inform them of what you can do.
Sell your services more effectively.
What people say about me
Laura is a very hands-on professional, a great thinker and an amazing collaborator. She is also very adventurous and adapts to new ideas very quickly, and is able to turn them into magic!
Needless to say, her writing craft is at the highest standard. She thinks strategically, writes creatively.
Founder at etc.Brands
I have recently worked with Laura on a book as I wanted a strategic thinker not just a language expert. She was diligent, organised, friendly and professional. Laura understood what I wanted to express and provided me with strategic tips on how to improve the engagement with the content. I definitely would recommend her.
Designer, consultant & founder of Jüniör
Laura has ghostwritten some of my LinkedIn articles and I find working with her extremely easy. Laura is very professional and delivers very high service standards. She is a talented writer and is able to stimulate my thinking and expand on the original idea autonomously. I definitely recommend working with Laura.
Executive & Business Coach
We recently collaborated with Laura for a brand identity development project. She provided us with a comprehensive tone of voice and "dos & don'ts" that really complimented the work we were doing with our client. We were incredibly impressed by her attention to detail, swiftness of response and we'd have no hesitation working with her again.
Graphic Desiger & Co-Founder of Arobase
Laura provided concise and highly useful support to us in refining our website copy. She is hugely knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and I will look forward to using her services again in the future.
Business Development Director at Lemon Gazelle
The copywriting work Laura did for us was a bit of an eye-opener. In the briefing session, Laura asked really good questions about our work and business and we learned a lot about what makes our business work and why. In truth, it almost doubled up as a bit of a business coaching session which was great as Laura really listened to what we had to say.
