nDash Writer Profile for Michael Hayles

Michael Hayles - Freelance Copywriter & Script Writer

About Me

I am a very strong conceptual writer with the ability to create copy that is easy to understand from the reader's perspective. 

Over the years I have worked as part of a team on creative mainstream advertising and also within the direct response wing of the industry.

Once advertising via the internet gained momentum I focused on transferring my skills to firstly html sales pages and more recently to video and in particular Video Sales Letters,  which are in high demand at present.

I am very at ease writing scripts for video as away from advertising and marketing I have written plays, a musical, including song lyrics plus radio comedy sketches and television sitcom dialogue.

I have tended to divide my time between working as a writer in advertising and pursuing my own projects as a script writer, playwright and lyricist.
