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?

Able to write complex information so it's easy to understand
5.0

“It was great working with Nerissa. She asked relevant questions at the start, so that she could develop appropriate content that spoke to the target audience. She was able to distill complex material to make it easy to understand and structured the content clearly and logically. Since completing the project, Nerissa has started another project within my organisation and I will use her services again without hesitation.”

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.

Thank you Nerissa
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.
