When you own a business, you’re constantly moving from one task to another. One minute you may be doing payroll, and the next, you may be calling a supplier about a delayed shipment. Between all of that, your marketing remains top of mind: Have you posted to social media lately? When’s the last time you sent out an email marketing campaign? And your blog – oh geez, that’s due for a fresh article!
With only so many hours in a day, you need to learn how to work as efficiently as possible. And that applies to your business’s copywriting, too!

No matter how strong of a writer you are, you’ll have good and bad days when writing copy for your business.
On the good days, your fingers will fly over your keyboard. You have so much to say about your brand that you can’t wait to hit that publish button and let the world know!
But on the bad days, those same fingers will grind to a slow halt. Instead, they end up twiddling your hair or holding your mug of coffee a lot more than usual.
You’ll start looking for any excuse to leave your computer – and wait patiently for those creative juices to start flowing once more.
And if they still don’t, you’ll start trying to convince yourself that this new piece of website content isn’t really that important.
But deep down, you know that every single piece of website content you create is crucial. It’s what’s convincing your target market that they should – no, they need to – purchase your product or service.

If you’re looking for a way to make copywriting a less dreaded task, then we’ve got you covered! Below, we’ve outlined the four most helpful copywriter tools to help you write better copy – starting today.
When done well, copywriting can bring a load of benefits to your business. It can help you attract and retain a loyal customer following, build your brand image, and earn a reputation as the go-to source for your product or service. But most important of all? Copywriting can persuade readers to take action, which increases the profitability of your business.
To get the maximum ROI for your copywriting investment, you need copy that converts. The following four copywriting tips outline how to make that happen.
Your website designer has put together a beautiful template for you but needs the content – or copy – to finish it up.
Not a big deal, right?
Until you realize the importance of your website content.
Sure, design is important – and you need one that incorporates a great user experience (UX). But the words on your website pages themselves? They’re what actually influence website traffic to convert into a sale.
After putting it off for some time – or forever! – you’ve finally started making search engine optimized (SEO) copywriting for your business a priority. That in itself is worth celebrating – but celebrating is the last thing you feel like doing. That’s because no matter what you do, you’re not getting the results you’d hoped for.

When’s the last time you picked up the phone to call a business?
If you’re like the majority of consumers, it’s been a while. With the increased use of smartphones and mobile shopping, buying online is a part of our day-to-day lives. More than half (55 percent) of all customer interactions usually start online, with over a quarter of them beginning on mobile devices. And during recent lockdowns from COVID-19, online shopping was the most convenient way – and in some cases, the only way – to purchase the things we need and want.
Instead of talking to salespeople or handling a physical product, you’re relying on what you read online. With eighty-one percent of shoppers conducting online research before making a purchase, websites play a vital part in the decision-making process.

You need words that have the power to communicate value and influence a buying decision. In short, you need to write words that sell.
