Freelance copywriter Melbourne – for  a jumbo digital presence.

What’s the connection between elephants and writing? There are a few qualities we like to think we share.  Size is number one. There’s no denying when an elephant is in the room. It demands your attention. Our copywriting and marketing content makes you stand out by showing off your unique brand. Our effective use of keywords and SEO makes you visible and easy to find.  Elephants are also social. Elephant Copy creates online marketing content that communicates whatever it is you need to tell the world and more – in your voice. In case you hadn’t noticed, elephants have really big ears. We pay attention to the core of your brand identity and tell your story in your style. Oh…also, while elephants aren’t native to Melbourne, we certainly are. Based in Melbourne’s beautiful Dandenong Ranges, Elephant Copy provides copywriting services all over Melbourne and has a freelance copywriter ready to take you business on an exciting elephant ride.

Dr. Danika Benison, freelance copywriter, Melbourne

For over 20 years Dr. Danika Benison has been developing her relationship with the written word. Many early years (not misspent), were devoted to academic research, teaching and writing a doctorate in medical anthropology  – for which  the University of Melbourne awarded her a PhD in 2008. Many books later and with a symbiotic relationship with her keyboard, Danika sought new writing opportunities. It wasn’t long before she found her new direction as a freelance copywriter in Melbourne, writing blogs for small businesses, developing small business brands, and website copywriting. Danika has an intutive understanding of different audiences and channels. Danika also works alongside digital and research agencies assisting with research and report writing.
