About Melbourne Copywriter Damien Elsing

Hi, I’m Damien, a freelance copywriter based in Melbourne.

I’m a trained writer with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English from Melbourne’s La Trobe University.

I’ve worked with numerous businesses both local and abroad as a copywriter and communications consultant, helping them achieve significant, measurable improvements in their business results.

Some of the companies I’ve worked with include:

  • Barefoot Investor (where I was Head of Marketing)
  • Westpac (where I wrote copy to fill their sponsored seminars)
  • Telstra (for whom I consulted on SEO blog content)
  • Grill’d (where I worked with them to redevelop their internal operating procedures).
  • …and dozens of small businesses in a wide range of industries.

I love helping businesses find their voice and connect with their ideal clients and customers.

I live in the Dandenong Ranges just outside of Melbourne with my wife and son, and in my spare time I enjoy playing computer games like WoW, watching TV shows like Game of Thrones and Mad Men, and visiting local markets (yes – I’m a nerd).

You can see some of my writing in the portfolio and blog sections of this website.

If you’d like to work with me on creating content for your business you can check out my copywriting services, or get in touch for a chat.

What My Clients Say…

"OVERdelivered in every way"

Damien 100% “gets” the niche and the angle... The white paper is everything I was hoping for and more. In addition, he gave me other ideas in which I could use the white paper for marketing my business … This is a case of a writer OVERdelivering in every way. I highly recommend Damien and will be using his services again in the future.

"My advice is to use Damien"

Great copy is not easy to come by. And trying to write it is the bane of many small business owners' lives. After all, none of us are copywriters. But having great copy is a powerful marketing play. So, my advice is to use Damien. He writes good. Real good! He did so for me and the results were wonderful. Plus he cares. He helps you get the brief right, and his follow-up is outstanding. Put Damien on your virtual marketing team now.

I'd be happy to recommend Damien for a freelance writing project in any vertical.
