Farsight Media

Words that work

FARSIGHT MEDIA is a UK-based copywriting agency, offering a broad range of copywriting and editorial services.

We specialise in copywriting that works, that develops your brand and helps it to grow (as well as making you look and sound terrific). We’ll do it quickly, effectively, on time and on budget. We’ll help your brand stand out in today’s tough climate, and we won’t waste your time with pretty words that say nothing.

Barclays Wealth

We wrote a series of video scripts, letters and other collateral aimed at IFAs to promote finance products and services.


We created documentation to help explain to senior DWP staff the implications and benefits of the department’s ongoing digital transformation.

O2 Business

Farsight’s Dave Oliver spent three years embedded as O2 Business’s senior copywriter and tone of voice consultant.


We reorganised, wrote and updated the technical documentation for Unilever’s creative agencies to enable them to build websites in AEM digital platforms.

Make your content a priority.

We certainly will.

Clients past and present

Active clients

Written articles (at least!)

Cups of coffee (give or take)

Increase conversion rates

Copy that informs, that convinces, and eventually persuades, is what we do. And if there’s room for a bit of entertainment there too, then so much the better.

Reduce bounce rate

Bounce happens when readers haven’t found what they’re looking for. Our copy is designed to entice and intrigue, to increase dwell time and reduce your overall bounce rate.

Drive more traffic

We can help you develop your content, your strategy and your SEO to drive more visitors to your site and give them what they’re looking for – so they’ll keep coming back.


Dave is a seasoned professional at taking the most complex technical information and turning it into content which makes sense to end-users and non-technical people. He brings fresh ideas and fresh eyes to any business scenario and always has focus on what will work for specific audiences.

Charlotte Brown, Product Manager, AEM Global Digital Engagement Platform at Unilever

Dave is a consummate professional and I recommend him whole-heartedly. His background as a journalist gives him a strong point of difference to many other copywriters. He asks the right questions, listens hard, develops a compelling narrative and is open, not precious, in taking feedback and re-direction.

Ian Maclean, Partner at Juice

I have worked with Dave on a number of engagements now and find him extremely easy to work with. Not only does he take the time to really get to know the business but his delivery is always of the highest quality. I can't recommend Dave highly enough, a true professional and a great guy too.

Mark Southerton, Integration Architect, DXC Technology

Dave was able to jump straight into large copywriting projects and work directly with stakeholders to ensure these were delivered on time and to a very high quality. I wouldn't hesitate to invite Dave back to join our team in the future

Sometimes we write about writing

You might suffer from textitis – and not even know it

You might suffer from textitis – and not even know it

With over 900 candidates applying for a single job, an application with the words ‘im’, ‘u’, and ‘all so’, instead of ‘I’m’, ‘you’ and ‘also’, will instantly remove any possibility of an interview. Hopes dashed and time wasted.

Clear beats clever

As writers (and inevitably, readers), we're often tempted to show off our abilities and our strengths. Our deeper understandings and intuitions, not to mention our ability to recognise a bon mot when we see one.  But for the professional copywriter, this is often a...

What’s the best bit?

Even before Aristotle identified the seven rules of story in his Poetics (335 BC), audiences have enjoyed a ripping yarn. The best stories excite, feature great characters (sometimes flawed) and take us with them on a journey through life’s ups and downs. They linger...
