Liz Green | copywriter and content creator
Hello, this is the bit where you get to learn more about my journey to become a copywriter and content creator.
Except… like every good About page, it’s not really about me – it’s all about you.
And why you should trust me to help you connect with your target audience, and convert them from site visitors into raving fans.
Skills + experience = copywriting you can trust
I bring you the the perfect blend of writing skills and experience to tackle your writing woes, and wrestle them right off the page.
For over 20 years in the workplace, I joyfully took on the wordier tasks my colleagues rejected, across a range of industries including:
- small business
- local government
- residential construction
- oil and gas
- higher education
For years, I created the messages on promotional flyers, and whipped words into shape for web sites, training manuals, technical documents – even feature articles – all while sitting in admin roles.
It took a while before I realised I had the experience to get serious about a writing career.
But, I wanted to back that up with a solid skill set.
Qualifications + experience = professional writer
I headed to Uni, studied a degree in Professional Writing and Publishing and graduated with distinction in 2016.
While I was studying, and after graduation I regularly wrote blogs for Curtin Uni’s Careers for Tomorrow website.
And I honed my copywriting skills by learning from industry specialists like:
- Bernadette Schwerdt at the Australian Writers Centre
- Kate Toon at The Clever Copywriting School
- Belinda Weaver at Copywrite Matters
I launched WhizBang Writing Solutions in 2017.
I’ve been helping small business owners engage and connect with their target audiences ever since.
Sharing your story – from dream to reality
Your story becomes the backbone of the copy I write. It helps me understand the people, and the journey, behind your brand.
Your story underpins your ‘why’, which is a powerful reason for people to choose your product or service ahead of the rest.
So, before I get to work on your copy, I take the time to learn about:
- Who you are
- What you do
- Who you do it for
- What sets you apart from your competition
Then I create clear, compelling copy that helps you attract your ideal clients and convert them into loyal customers.
So, what’s my story?
I grew up in the beautiful Roman city of Bath. But, in 1991, I stuffed my worldly possessions into a backpack and travelled to Cairns in far north Queensland.
Neither the lifestyle or the weather could have been more different. But I fell in love with Australia.
My life in tropical FNQ was a wild rollercoaster ride, jam-packed full of adventures and life lessons.
From waitressing in open-air restaurants in 98% humidity to taking trail rides through the rainforest on horseback – I eventually worked in a beautifully air-conditioned bank.
But, after six years, my curly hair couldn’t cope with the humid summers any longer. I headed out west for the dry heat of Perth, and some much-needed family time.
Years later, I’m still Perth-based. But, my husband and I live a nomadic lifestyle.
We’re full-time house sitters, so we take care of homes and pets for other people while they travel.
Sometimes all the packing and unpacking gets a little tedious.
But, the fabulous flip-side is having the freedom to grab my laptop and go travelling as often as possible.
And, thanks to the wonders of Wi-Fi, I can and do work wherever I go. I’m just an email, Zoom or FaceTime away – you’ll never notice I’m gone!
