About DropCapCopy Copywriting

I’m Graeme Piper, a UK-based freelance copywriter and DropCapCopy is my copywriting, content writing, and copyediting business, owned and run by me.

As a company of one and purposely small, I get to work with a bunch of super-talented creative agencies and lots of amazing SMEs to write copy that engages, informs, and (often) entertains. That copy is usually for websites, blogs, brochures, and general offline and online marketing, but the main aim of everything is to keep your copy simple, conversational, and natural. Simplifying the complex, kicking out the jargon, and keeping it easy to read – to make your product or service irresistible to your customers without using crazy claims, gimmicks, or BS.

You can see a selection of my recent work that will give you a taste of what I’ve done and who I’ve worked for.

Why work with DropCapCopy?

What do you get when you work with me – and why should you? Well, for me, it’s personal and these are the ethics I value and work by daily. With me as your trusted freelance copywriter, you’ll get someone who is:

All these things combined, plus my track record in writing for different sectors and audiences means I put everything into creating good, quality copywriting content. The kind of content that hits the right spot, is easy to read and understand, and has a natural, conversational feel that doesn’t sound like it’s been written by an AI robot.

But be warned: I do start sentences with ‘And’ and ‘But’. But only because I can. And it’s not wrong.

This is how I give every client both the undivided attention to detail that’s needed for an individual service and the copy to go with it. So contact me when you want to get the ball rolling on your next project. And check out my copywriting services and copywriting FAQ pages if you need a bit more info beforehand.

I’ve picked up several SME News Business Elite Awards for DropCapCopy Copywriting and the way I do things over the years as evidenced below:

Early days and lazy days

Starting my copywriting career in a former marketing role back in 2014, I regularly wrote copy for company brochures, web pages, and blogs. It was only when my boss asked me to write a complete brochure from scratch that it dawned on me that I should, perhaps, explore this wonderful world of copywriting. In early 2015, by taking courses, reading books, following all the right people, and putting myself out there, I started working with and writing copy for my own clients. After that unfathomably seemed to work, I finally went full-time freelance in August 2016. And here we are…

But lazy days and life beyond copywriting for a living can be broken down pretty easily. I live in the market town of Newton Abbot – right between Exeter and Plymouth – in Devon, with my wife and two cats, right on the doorstep of Dartmoor. Here are a few more quick facts about me:

What my copywriting clients are saying

I’ve recently worked with Graeme to develop scientific case studies for our new website, highlighting some of the success stories that have come from academic / industry collaborations at the University of Exeter. Graeme was a pleasure to interact with, very responsive, and willing to work to our tight timelines. His work was excellent. I look forward to working with Graeme again in the future!

Benjamin Housden | Co-Founder & Director, Quest Genetics

Enjoyed working with Graeme on a large project for the Do Book Co recently. He quickly felt like part of the team, understood the brief and delivered what was required on time and on budget. We hope to work with him again!

Miranda West | Founder & Publisher, The Do Book Co.

Graeme quickly understood my business and what I needed after receiving a complicated brief. I’ve already recommended DropCapCopy to a number of my clients, and I’ll certainly be working with Graeme again.

Simon Edwin | Director, Studiose, Plymouth

Graeme did a fantastic job doing our copy and content writing for our new website. Without any previous knowledge of the business or product, he was able to interpret our needs extremely well, guiding us through the process and making it as easy as possible while keeping to timescales.

Andrew Moss | Director, SCS Porsche, Honiton

Graeme has been so great to work with over the last couple of years and would highly recommend him to anyone. Always happy to help, even with the smaller tasks, making something boring into something exciting and engaging. He’s really taken the time to understand our business, product and us as a team, which makes him so easy to work with.

Felicity McCarter | Office Manager, Nathan McCarter Joinery, Tavistock

Graeme’s a pleasure to work with. He’s written copy for several of our recent larger client projects, as well as for our own website. Professional, diligent and efficient in everything he writes, meeting both our, and our client’s, expectations with ease. I’d have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for copywriting or content writing services.

Nathan Yendle | Director, Priority Pixels, Newton Abbot

We’ve contracted DropCapCopy to work with us on client projects for a couple of years now. Graeme’s always a delight to work with. He responds quickly, produces a high-quality set of copy every time, and always maintains active communication. We’ll continue working with DropCapCopy again on future projects.

Claire Stirling | Director, Made with Maturity, Plymouth

DropCapCopy produced some well researched and professional copy for my business that has generated some good results. If you need copy and content marketing that engages your audience, I highly recommend Graeme.
