Not Your Typical Wordsmith.
I’m Justin Hendricks, a seasoned B2B and B2C sales professional with over 16 years of experience turned freelance copywriter.
“You’re a salesman?” Well, although a very broad term and not as eloquent a description for what I actually did or accomplished in my career, essentially… Yes!
The fact is sales and creative copywriting have a lot more in common than you might think. A quick search for definitions will tell you both require “excellent communication skills and aim to increase brand awareness and ultimately persuade a person or group to take a particular action.” Nicely put Google.
Throw in a heightened sense of empathy through years of honing your craft with face to face meetings, pitches, presentations, and negotiations, and you’ve got yourself someone who knows what makes people tick and how to engage with them.
This rare alchemy of battle-tested real-world sales experience, a pinch of wicked wordsmithery, and a healthy dollop of creative imagination allows me to write compelling copy that sells.
Who Am I?
Hi! I'm Justin...
Justin Hendricks | Copywriter | Storyteller |Creative
The Lighter Side.
Let's Get Personal.
I'm South African born and bred, now living in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. It's a Long story. So when we speak over the phone and you’re trying to place the accent, it’s not Aussie or Kiwi.
I’m a lifelong martial arts enthusiast. It's one of my many passions. Not just rugby!
As a youngster, I played competitive chess at a provincial level, for fun! I know right!
I'm not just creative with copy. I’m also a Lego "Master Builder" (a title bestowed upon me by my kids)
That's enough about me.
My Business Philosophy.
Deliver. Exceed. Build.
I love working with people. Collaborating to achieve a common goal and building long term relationships are the foundations on which my career has been built. My philosophy is a simple one: If you win, I win.
