“I have all the marketing books and info but still have a problem in the actual ‘doing’ — I still struggle to create that perfect ad/leaflet/flyer…”
If this sounds like you, then you may be encouraged to hear you are not alone. Judging by the emails in my Inbox, it’s a common concern. So what are you supposed to do?
If you really want your business to be as successful as it can be — to thrive and not just survive… If you really want to make the most of the investment you’ve made in it, then you have to continually find ways to offer your customers unique advantages they can’t get elsewhere.
You book your car in for its annual MOT, so why not your business words? (Are you sure they’re giving the right impression? Do they reap the desired results? Is your message being compromised by sloppy copy?)
While we can all ‘write’, copywriting involves so much more than simply penning a few well-crafted words. Before she or he writes, a good copywriter will spend a considerable amount of time researching the intended audience. They’ll make sure they understand buyer behaviour and how to craft your message in such a way that it really makes a splash.
Good copywriting can make confusing policies crystal clear. It can keep inter-company communications running smoothly through the careful use of words. And it can effectively sell a companys products or services to its customers.
So if you’re not sure your copy is quite right, email me a paragraph (up to 200 words) of your poorly prose and the “Word Doctor” will nurse it back to life. Think of it as a ‘Try Before You Buy’ offer. Then you can decide whether to give me the go-ahead if you have any text that requires editing, copyediting, rewriting, proofreading, indexing or researching.
Don’t have the time or the inclination to write your own copy? I can do it for you. Just follow this link and you’ll soon be on your way to owning copy that gets results.
