Some fun facts…

I prefer coffee over tea, but always drink peppermint tea before heading to bed.

Roger Federer is my favourite tennis player EVER. He is the GOAT. No question. I even wrote a blog post about him.

I can pretty much recite the script of ‘Fawlty Towers’. The episode with Mrs Richards is my favourite.

And did I mention I’m working on my first novel?

4.5

We have just developed a new website from scratch, and Nerissa worked very closely with our business and web development teams to produce the content.

Nerissa took the time to understand our brand properly and what we were aiming to convey through several phone calls and by reading material we provided.

Nerissa was professional, efficient and understood exactly what we required.

Nerissa met all the deadlines and was very responsive in turning the draft into the final document.

She was able to bring our ideas to life and clearly convey some difficult concepts.

Nerissa is very bright, business-savvy and quick at coming up with content solutions.

She was also flexible in terms of writing extra copy which we had not initially asked for.

We were delighted with Nerissa’s copy – which conveys the essence of our brand very well – and I would recommend her highly.

Nerissa’s writing is second to none! She’s a fabulous wordsmith that has the power to craft an enthusiastic and compelling story, communicating complex health and environmental issues in a way that’s not only easy to understand but also creates a moving and motivating experience for the reader. Nerissa has been contributing to our blog for some time and we’re absolutely thrilled to share her voice with our community. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.

I’ve worked with Nerissa on a number of projects over the years. I initially selected Nerissa as she is not only a great communicator but a great listener. She really takes the time to understand what your requirements are and who your audience is and takes care and pride in delivering material that hits the mark. Nerissa’s work is always on time, well researched and of course, well written. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.

Talented and professional copywriter who is a joy to work with
5.0

I recently engaged Nerissa Bentley to help me write short copy to promote an online course I am running. I chose Nerissa because she works specifically with people in the health industry and I wanted someone who would understand what I needed and knew the language that fits with what I want to achieve.

I found working with Nerissa to be easy, straight-forward and uncomplicated. Nerissa is a talented and professional copywriter who is very accommodating and a joy to work with. In my business I want a remote team that understands my needs and thinks outside of my own capabilities, Nerissa is such a person.

Highly talented. Very professional. My pleasure to recommend Nerissa
5.0

Nerissa is one of the most talented writers and professional communicators with whom I’ve worked. Her writing and proofing skills are second to none, with high-quality content across features, press releases and digital media.  Rather than cut and paste, Nerissa applies crafted content for multiple channels which many writers don’t always do.

She also has a high-level attention to detail, ensuring the product delivered is error-free. Nerissa does her homework, spending time on desk research to ensure the validity of what she’s writing. She is highly professional to work with and is always up-front about what she can deliver and by when.

It’s my pleasure to recommend Nerissa and her communication services, and, like many of her existing clients, I am in the process of working with her again.

Great copy writer
3.5

We were referred to Nerissa so our initial discussion focused on our needs and how she might be able to assist. As we were new to blogging and using social media, Nerissa was really helpful in giving us choice on the types of blogs she could write but also gave us the confidence that she could help us with social media to where one can, SEO.

Nerissa will take on the suggested subject matter, go away and do some research and then throw around ideas as to how best to position the message we wish to convey.

We have completed a number of blogs and on all occasions, Nerissa has been very easy to work with minimal changes required to copy.

Would highly recommend her.
