Bela Pechau

Copywriter & Content Creator

Location icon South Africa

I have 5 years copywriting experience - 2 years Agency, 3 years Freelance.

I've dabbled in all sorts of digital hoo-too which includes writing SEO articles, long and short web copy, social media content creation, 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 based in Little Brak River in the Garden Route - but I'm happy to travel anywhere for in-house projects.

The Situation Room - Team Up

Team Up events is a New Zealand based company that specializes in corporate team building. I created a storyline for their 'Situation Room' genre. It's a race against the clock and players have to work together to solve a series of puzzles to stop an illicit tobacco deal from going down, before it's too late.

Home Security and Estate Living | LockLatch

Home security tips are easy to come by, and there are many devices and measures you can take to improve the general security of your home. However, the installation of slam-lock gates, burglar bars or complicated alarm systems can be expensive, and for people who own property in security estates or golf estates the problems can be confounded by the aesthetic guidelines outlined in the estate's rules.

Before the After | An Introduction

Have you ever seen before and after pics people who've gone from 160kgs+ to 75kg - inspiring AF, right? Now, I don't know about you but I always ask, what happened in between that before and after picture, how did they get there? And in all seriousness, how the fuck did they do that?

How About a Riddle?

This is my first attempt at creating a riddle. As I'm actually terrible at solving riddles myself, whether this one is very good or not, I won't know. The answer is at the bottom.
