My story

Sophia Arthur Gold Coast copywriter

My name is Sophia Arthur and I use words to help your business grow.

Together, we can create awesome, lead-generating content that brings you the right clients and keeps working, even when you aren’t.

Words have power

Ever since I was small I’ve known that words have power. This led me to begin my career as a cadet journalist in regional Queensland, where I discovered how words could shape opinions and transform communities. Then I worked in public relations, where words build reputations and generate excitement around brands and organisations.

But by far the most rewarding roles for me have involved using words to connect people. To energetically tie things together.

After living and working in Bundaberg, Cairns, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, my little family finally settled on the glittering Gold Coast in 2016, and that’s where Clove Hitch Content began.

Why the clove hitch?

If you’re intrigued by the name – my initials ‘S’ and ‘A’ in cursive text look like a bit like a clove hitch knot, and I love creating content that ties things together.

But, if you’re not sold on sailing knots and need to be sure I have the right expertise, there are a few more things you should know:

  • I have a Bachelor of Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in politics and psychology
  • I’ve racked up more than a decade of experience as a professional communicator and I’m constantly honing my copywriting skills, particularly in SEO and lead generation.

I work with clients across a range of industries – everything from health and wellness to real estate and finance – and I will develop a content strategy that’s just right for you.

I engaged Sophia (Clove Hitch Content) to review the copy on my website because I have a lot of trouble describing what I do and putting it in a way that encourages people to buy my products.

I worked with Sophia on updating my sales page and making it REALLY work. She reviewed my current copy, revamped it for the better and even helped me load it to my site. She took the time to ensure the right points were bolded, that the images worked with her well-crafted words and that I … Continue reading Stacey Clare, A Healthy Mum

Sophia interpreted our brief perfectly and her work, even on the first draft, was exceptional. She was able to turn around our copywriting job quickly and we would not hesitate to recommend her.
