Scientific Copywriting

Writers write, copywriters sell 
Scientists are in the business of pitching their ideas and so research is increasingly a commercial enterprise. Therefore researchers often find themselves at the crossroads of marketing and science.

To succeed here you need more than well-written copy to attract top talent, acquire funds and promote spin-offs. You need a copywriter who understands both science and the science of selling.

With both an academic and commercial background, we provide expert copywriting services for researchers and research institutions in the humanities, life sciences, medicine and natural sciences.

There is a big difference between a scholarly approach for journals and copywriting for print and web. Our copywriters know how to appeal to a wider audience. For example, how to recruit top talent for a new masters course, how to rewrite a complex brochure text aimed at potential investors in a spin-off, or how to produce commercially focused copy to promote a research group to international research and business circles.

Not only is copywriting a science, it takes skill to refine concepts and ideas, with well-organised information and clear benefits. Unless it’s your job, this will take you a great deal of time. So hire a professional copywriter. Then get back to doing what you do best.
