I help businesses and job seekers engage readers to take action



I started writing resumes for a living because I was getting interviews but not the job, so I decided to help people by writing their resumes. I studied some courses with the Australian Writers Centre over the last few years and loved learning about the different types of writing.

Copywriting interested me because it helps people and businesses get a result e.g. a job interview, a customer buying your products or services. I’ve always been interested in marketing and psychology and copywriting combines these.

There’s nothing better than a happy client who is grateful for your help and is getting positive results.

I’m Susan Smyth, a Perth based copywriter. I help businesses and job seekers create copy that connects to your readers, increases interest and generates your desired results.

I offer a professional, personally tailored and considered approach to copywriting for small businesses and job seekers.

Your marketing projects are much more valuable when created with purpose and professional knowledge.

Client love

Here’s what my clients say about me. To read more feedback, head to my Testimonials page.

I recently asked Susan to proofread some website copy I’d looked at too many times to confidently proofread myself. And thank goodness – because she caught a few things that I’d overlooked – NOT a good look for a copywriter! Susan worked quickly but thoroughly on a super-fast turnaround and I was super grateful knowing I could send my client her copy without fear of typos. Thanks so much, Susan!

I engaged Susan to do some sub-contracting work for me in the form of research for long-form blog articles. Being one of my first sub-contracting experiences I was a little nervous, but as it turns out I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Susan turned around some great research for me with lightning-fast speed. She made my life so much easier with lots of looming deadlines and I won’t hesitate to use Susan again for research, proofreading and copywriting.

I was impressed with the efficiency and precision of my resume, updated by Words By Susan. Susan is a perfectionist that has created a resume that will open new opportunities for me in the future, more so than had I composed it myself. I would thoroughly recommend her work to anyone either looking for work or seeking to advance their career.
