Writing clear and concise marketing communication is vital to the success of any business. If you don’t have this expertise in-house, please contact us and we will be happy to assist with this. We will start by finding out the style that you require, your target audience and what you feel makes your business different to your competitors (what they call ‘Unique Selling Points’ in business jargon). Be it website content, brochures, advertisement text, press releases, Facebook content, email campaigns or newsletters, we can help put together credible and effective copy which will be persuasive, interesting to read and will generate real results. Where websites are concerned, the copy writing exercise is not just about the reader, but is also about Google and the search engines. The content therefore needs to be optimised to include the search terms which most people search via to ensure your website achieves the desired "Page 1 Google" ranking. We are highly experienced at doing this to ensure that our clients gain maximum exposure on Google without the cost of Google AdWords.
