Who?

Hi, I’m Matt Bonanno.

Or Bonano, Bonnano, Banana… People love to misplace that third ‘n’.

I’m a freelance copywriter based in Manchester. After five years working in-house, I decided I wanted to divide my time between copywriting and my main passion – stand-up comedy.

Over the years, I’ve written all kinds of copy for top companies like Rentalcars.com, Booking.com, InterNations and Cherry Casino, including:

  • Landing pages
  • Emails
  • Microcopy and UX copy (CTAs, tooltips, headers, etc.)
  • Creative copy like straplines and slogans
  • SEO copy
  • Social media
  • Proofreading and editing

This means that my current specialisations are car hire, travel and gambling, although I’m capable of writing about anything. Except maybe women’s shoes and quantum physics.

I love words. I love choosing the perfect word to convey exactly what I mean. I love writing and re-writing sentences until they have the perfect rhythm. I love silly puns and wordplay.

If you’re a start-up, I’d love to write your website’s content from scratch (I wrote an article about why it’s important to bring in a copywriter at the very start of your website’s existence), or maybe you’re an established brand that wants to tell the world how great your new product is. If you need articles with titles like ’30 amazing things you never knew you could do with a toaster’, I can write those for you too.

Outside of copywriting and comedy, I’m also interested in psychology (especially behavioral and social), current affairs, film, music, travelling, cooking and football.
