About

A seasoned copywriter with a marketing soul

4

Hi, my name is Vikki Maver

I am a Melbourne-based:

• Website content writer
• Business copywriter
• Marketing and advertising copywriter
• Qualified and experienced marketer
• Writing skills trainer and presenter
• Former Monash University lecturer

I am a marketer. Born and bred.

I studied marketing at Monash University and worked as a marketing professional in the corporate world for more than a decade. I also went back to Monash to lecture and tutor undergraduate Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC).

My marketing background gives me the ability to tap into the mindset of almost any target audience. It’s a skill all copywriters should have – but often don’t.

A freelance copywriter since 2003

As a marketing professional, I found myself writing regularly and always wanting to do more of it.

Then in 2003 – after more than 10 years in the corporate world – I finally began to write for a living. And I haven’t looked back since.

Also a specialist web writer

A few years ago I decided to specialise in web writing. So I polished my skills and taught myself everything there was to know about writing for this challenging (and relatively new) medium.

It’s hard enough to find an excellent copywriter. It’s even harder to find an excellent copywriter who truly understands the web.

An energetic writing skills trainer

Since 2008, I have been running writing skills workshops to help business professionals improve their everyday business writing and specialist web writing. I also deliver a writing for marketing workshop, empowering marketing teams to write with more impact.

Helping people become more confident and competent writers is extremely rewarding. And as a bonus, I get to meet many interesting people along the way.
