Take it from a Copywriter

Take it from a Copywriter

Writing is not everyone’s cup of tea, it can be so easy to get bogged down and give up half way through. But, writing should be easy, it’s the same as speaking, right? Well not quite, but there are a few tips that can help get you over the line and back to doing what you do best.

Story Telling

Always remember you are telling a story, imagine yourself sitting down with a friend and retelling something funny that happened at work. All stories follow a certain structure; beginning, middle and end. Sometimes the end can be hard to find, but we all get there eventually. You don’t need to be a wordsmith, often the bare bones are enough –then if you’d like someone else can take the reins and finish the race for you.

Keep to the Point

Going off topic is the fastest way to lose a reader. They came to your website for a reason, so stick to it! Before you start writing, sketch out a plan for the content. The first point should always be, what is this about? Break the topic into sections and if one part becomes too large consider creating a new article;you can always link to it later.

Originality

People like to read new and interesting articles. Keeping your work original, and in your specific voice, is the best way to engage an audience. Speak directly to them and don’t bury them with jargon; there’s a reason we have the saying Keep It Simple Simon!

Maintain Grammar

Most people think of grammar as a bunch of confusing rules. But, grammar is largely style and spelling. Is your voice consistent and active? Check your spelling, especially for easy to misuse words, such as there, their and they’re. For the best results get a professional to check it for you.

Start Writing!

Creating engaging content for your website can be easy and rewarding. Be yourself, natural and truthful. Tell a good story and you will be rewarded with solid readership, that can lead to a loyal customer base and increased sales.
