Great website copy needs to pack a punch, in about 3 seconds! This is how long readers spend deciding whether they’ll read on or whether they’ll click on the next site. Therefore, those headlines need to be virtual and genuine invitation for someone to enter the ‘shop’ and have a look around. On top of this it needs to feature keywords about your product or service for Google to recognise it, which is another key feature good copy will provide.
Want Google and other search engines to promote your website? Then you’ll need copy that has key search terms for your product or service woven into the text to bring up your website ranking. This is not a case of ‘key-word stuffing’ but of knowing which words, terms and phrases will most successfully connect customers with your particular service and brand. The best copy is a fine balance between intriguing and SE-optimised language.
Web page traffic can vary by as much as 500%
based on how captivating the headline is.
Take Out The Fluff
Clear and concise copy which highlights product or service benefits is what engages the potential customer. It’s a tendency of businesses to write lengthy explanations of the various processes of their service which neither encourages the reader to read on nor prompts a sale. Turn visitors into customers.
Great copy is not only about driving new traffic but about successfully guiding customers into making a decision they’re happy with – buying the product that fulfils their needs.
Client Focused Content
Good copy is well researched and designed to attract the customers you’re really looking to work with. More often than not this means those who value the service and want to tell others about it. Good copy brings the personality of the business across and can effectively manage expectations. Being specific about services is one thing, making that service attractive to a certain type of client is another. Good copywriting can make this all-important link for you.
