Simon Hillier

Content Writing Trainer + Copywriter

I help people in business (and govt) turn ideas into words that captivate, connect and convert.

Many moons ago, I busted out of a CBD ecommerce cubicle to start something I love.

In the 16 years since, I’ve helped thousands of people in scores of organisations use the power of words to share their great ideas, big dreams and inspiring causes with the world (or a little corner of it).

With the right words, you can win the right people’s hearts, minds + business

Here, online, every business is just a screen of soulless pixels. A little harsh, but fair.

That’s why your content needs to step up and connect with your audience.

The right words tell people you understand them.

That you’re the firetruck to their burning problems.

That, yes, you’re the one they’ve been searching for.

How do you produce content that connects?

Let me help you.

I’ve been a digital content writing trainer, copywriter and private coach for over 24 years.

Along the way, I’ve worked with writers, SMBs, mega brands, government and non-profits to achieve all kinds of content goals, such as:

  • enhancing and saving lives
  • closing more sales and earning more profits
  • confidently creating their own magnetic messages.

But what matters most to you right now is…

Online, content is the one thing that connects us with our audience.

The right words tell people that you understand their needs.

That you’re the firetruck to their burning problems.

That they can trust in you.

And should do business for you.

How do you find the words that click with your audience?

Let me help you.

For 24 years I’ve been a:

  • web writing trainer
  • private content coach
  • digital copywriter.

Along the way, I’ve helped people, brands, government agencies and non-profits:

  • enhance and save many thousands of lives
  • earn millions in business.
  • excel at writing their own content and copy.

What can I do for you?

If your digital content sounds vanilla, clichéd or used car salesy, I can help.

If you’re struggling to convey ideas in interesting ways, I can help.

If you want to open people’s hearts and wallets for a cause…you get the picture.

In other words, if you need messages that captivate, connect and convert…

You can learn with me.
Or I can write for you.

If you’d love to create your own irresistible content, I offer group writing training and private coaching.

If you want a copywriter to turn your ideas into magnetic messages, I’ll go grab my Mad Men hat.

Either way, I’ll bring to your project everything I’ve learned:

  • writing for 100s of clients, from SMBs to icons like Microsoft, Canva + PayPal
  • helping 14000+ people become skilled, confident, non-procrastinating writers
  • pouring over web words for 47000+ hours (shout out to my chiropractor!)

Plus, a bonus better than steak knives.

Hemingway is my middle name. Yes, seriously.

It was passed on from my grandpa.

Which means you also get to brag that Hemingway penned your copy or taught you the tricks of the writing trade.

And be completely Ernest about it.

Plus, print copy and everything from audio tours to royal online dating profiles (shh, I’ll never tell who!).

I’ve also penned eBooks and books for publishers, companies and some truly inspiring individuals.

I love teaching people how to write

The most rewarding part of my job is helping people gain the skills and confidence to write in ways they could only imagine.

Over the past decade, I’ve taught more than 14,000 people better ways to connect with their audiences through words.

I relish every opportunity to:

● mentor gifted kids in remote areas through Aurora College.

It’s an amazing feeling that often leaves me…lost for words.

I never stop learning

In the digital world, it’s crucial to discover, test and understand with what’s working now and what’s coming next.

I still learn something exciting every day – be it through courses, events, client projects and challenges, students, peers or devouring the latest industry news. A few of my content related certifications include:
