How it all works…
There are approximately three stages for a project..
The process is simple. We reach out to you or you reach out to us. We agree via email or mobile or – if you’re lucky – in person to work together. Sometimes, we will help you form a strategy. You send us your project brief and we’ll accept it based on what we discussed in email or over the phone, then sign an agreement with you which includes legal stuff – like prices for work done. You sign this agreement and so do we, you send it to signed and pay 50% of the investment (deposit). The fun begins…
The whole process really starts with us asking the right questions and doing the right research. A longer call is common at this point. This stage is also where we may contact relevant individuals, do online and offline research, getting thorough about it all, before outline drafts are completed (by us). We can then further confirm the direction and discuss before going onto later stages. Further examples of the required end product from you will be VERY useful at this point. We then commence the first draft which will take up some time, I will send you this.
Finally, we start reworking the first draft to fine tune it and make sure all the bells and whistles are included i.e double-check grammar, spelling and punctuation. We may or may not need to do another final draft depending on how much needs changing as per our discussions (which will always be pleasant). You send the remaining 50% investment and I’ll send you the final versions of the work. You’re delighted and happy to spread the word about our services (if you want to)!
The power of web copywriting lies in its ability to engage both the reader and please search engines at the same time. Finding your target audience AND answering the questions running through their heads is key.
The copy on your website needs to be clear and concise. It should also create a relationship with the reader, show that you know what they want or need (*often think that they need), and make it easy for them.
Visitors often start with “What’s in it for me?”
No time, no incentive or no clue where to start when it comes to what to post or blog about?
