Copywriting & Marketing FAQs
Sometimes it can be difficult to put your finger on precisely what you need. The following F.A.Q answers many of the questions my clients ask me.
Q. Where can I get content for my blog
A. Let me tell you a secret: I recently had a client who assigned me a copyediting task. He wanted me to edit copy he had purchased.
When he gave me the writing I intuitively caught-whiff of something rotten. I researched the copy he had purchased. It turned out it had all been previously published and was taken from a “Swipe File”.
My client had been sold copy he did not have the legal right to publish. I pointed this out to him, preventing him from accidentally publishing plagiarized work.
That was the incorrect way of obtaining copy.
The right way to get copy is to ask a professional copywriter to produce it. That’d be me. As a professional blogger and copywriter, I will create the compelling copy you need to make your brand shine.
Q. I have a business blog but don’t know how to generate traffic for it. Any advice?
A. This is likely due to inadequate SEO (Search Engine Optimization). By producing high-quality SEO content for your blog, you will increase organic traffic. Contact me for more info.
Q. I have a business blog and am getting traffic, but my traffic is not converting. Help?
A. The problem is likely caused by an insufficient CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization) strategy or content that is SEO optimized for the wrong keywords. To handle this, I would create high-quality unique content that incorporates compelling copywriting, generating a higher conversion rate.
Q. I’ve written an important business letter / speech / paper / essay / etc., but I don’t feel confident sending / publishing it. What should I do?
A. Hey, no sweat! This is a common issue. It can be nerve-wracking sharing your work. You will feel much more confident after having your writing proofread and copyedited. I will be happy to edit your copy so you can rest assured that your English is perfect and that you’re communicating the right message.
Q. How can I create effective ads for my brilliant product / service?
A. Isn’t it funny how often the products that generate the most sales are not the best ones, but rather the ones with the best advertising? The ideal situation is when a great product meets great advertising. That’s why copy is so important. Great copy gets your product noticed.
Whether you’re looking for advertising materials for Google Adwords (or other online display advertising), direct mail campaigns, or advertorials to be published online or in magazines, you need good copy. For that, you need a great copywriter—get in touch!
Q. I’ve written a book / novel and it’s great. Can you check my writing?
A. Yes, most definitely. Too many great novels and books go unpublished because of minor errors in writing—as though the quality of a novel were based on the technicalities of grammatical construction. In the words of Shakespeare, “Fie on’t! ah, fie!” Let’s edit your book so you can get the agent or publicist you deserve.
Q. I am literally shaking in my boots because I have to give a speech and I’m worried about the writing.
A. I remember when I gave the speech at my father’s funeral—an emotional occasion. Before the funeral I was worried my nerves might get the better of me. But because I had the right words, I was confident. That’s what words give a speaker: the confidence that their speech will work. It’s about good writing. It’s about knowing that your speech will come over well. As a speaker, you probably have a great voice and unique personality already, but you might just like to have your speech edited or proofread so you can rest assured that it is perfect. I can help.
Q. How do I find a writer who is actually knowledgeable about my niche?
A. Ah. This is perhaps the question I hear more often than any other. Where do you find a writer knowledgeable about your niche?
Sometimes this is easy. There are specialist writers for most big industries.
But what about when your company is a little different? What about those times when it seems no one understands your company except you?
Let me tell you about the time I wrote a feature article for one of the biggest potato-magazines in the world, “Spudman”.
The only thing I knew about potatoes was how to cook them—mashed, roasted, or fried. But I researched extensively and learned everything there was to know about a specific breed of potato (“Carisma”). With that knowledge, I wrote an in-depth feature article for a magazine that is read by potato farmers around North America. Those farmers, who are the authority on a subject I knew so little about, ended up loving my article.
Trust me, when it seems no one understands your brand or product, I will. I have a wealth of experience in adapting my skills to my client’s needs. And I can do the same for you.
Q. Hmmmm… I still have a question
