Bela Pechau

Copywriter & Content Creator

Location icon South Africa

With almost 7 years of copywriting experience, it's easy to say that I've been a part of some pretty cool projects - and I've barely scratched the surface.

I've dabbled in all sorts of digital hoo-too which includes writing SEO articles, long and short web copy, social media content creation, UX copywriting, social media paid ads, creating/proofreading proposal presentations, writing bot conversations, mailers, and travelling across the country documenting a South African braai TV show.

In addition, I have a diploma in Travel and Tourism Marketing and I'm a qualified chef -

Although corporate copywriting is where the major opportunities are, my true love lies in short copy and in particular, making things rhyme and trying to make people laugh - because, why you gotta be so serious all the time, right?

I'm currently based in Little Brak River, Mossel Bay in the Garden Route - but I'm happy to travel anywhere for in-house projects.
