Affordable Effective Copywriting for Websites
At best effective website copywriting will engage, communicate, sell and grow your business and turn browsers into buyers, at worst it can put users off visiting your site ever again. Make no mistake: copywriting is as important to your website as design and navigation.
Writing for the internet is a different skill to normal business writing. Research has shown that users rarely read web pages word for word, but scan the page picking out individual words that relate to them. Web users don’t want to get bogged down in lengthy unspecific copy; they want to know in an instant if something relates to them.
Well written copy will help your sales message come across loud and clear. It will help you develop relationships with your clients. And it will give you an edge over your competitors. Poorly written copy with waffly sentences and too much information will have your customers going elsewhere.
Great website copywriting can be tough. Here are a few tips if you decide to have a go yourself.Who’s visiting your website?
Have a clear idea of who will be visiting your website. DO they already know about your service or product, or will you be introducing your business to them for the first time? Know your visitor: what are they looking for? Will they be ordering from your site? Write punchy copy that will appeal directly to them!Oi! Over here!
Grab your visitors attention with purposeful headings and sub-heading. Don’t use fluffy non-descript copy, write copy that goes straight to the heart of the matter. For example ‘Pure Silk Blouses - 30% Off’ directly states the selling proposition. Strong headings and subheads are essential as visitors scan read webpage’s. Once you have them hooked the rest should be easy.Scan Reading
