Benefits of having a copywriter for your business

Does your mind ever go completely blank – completely absent of words – when you see that big white computer screen of death?

With that little blinking cursor, mocking you…

You know you need to have highly engaging and informative content to promote your products and services. But you have no idea how to get those words out of your head and through your fingertips to the keyboard.

And write words that will make an impact.

Well, that’s why copywriters – like me – have thriving businesses.
We know this is a common occurrence among so many business owners out there.

As copywriters, we are the bridge between you and the consumer. You can hand over the task to us – and we’ll use our awesome writing skills to ensure your key message is conveyed in the best way possible.

But many people are still unaware that this service is available to them. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to explain all the reasons why you need a copywriter in your life…and maybe I can convince you to give us a go!

Let’s jump in!


So, what is a COPYWRITER?

Only a few people seem to have a total understanding of what being a “copywriter” is all about. And that’s okay, because we’re slowly but surely going to change that.

Starting off with the basic questions – what is a “copywriter” and what do they – including me – do?

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a copywriter is, literally, a writer of advertising or publicity copy. So to say, it sounds like an easy job of just writing whatever comes up for brands.

However, they do more than just draft blurbs and stuff.

For a more in-depth explanation, copywriters:

  • Make sure that the message is conveyed to the market in the best way possible, by identifying with their target audience and catering to their needs.

  • Are also responsible for creating compelling stories (marketing materials) that resonate with the people and influence their behaviour. Copywriters use creativity and emotional intelligence to achieve this goal.

Summing it up, copywriters are in charge of concocting ideas and writing content that will engage readers with a given company’s product or service. 

How Important is Copywriting and Having A Copywriter in Your Business?

So now you’re probably thinking about the impact copywriters can have on your business.

Are they really that important? 

Well, you see, copywriting is not just about making your business look good. It’s about having a content strategy that will work for you and your audience; it’s about attracting buyers and gaining sales for your enterprise. 

For businesses, it is the backbone of any successful marketing campaign. 

It can tell people who you are, what you do, and why they should care. 

It’s one of the most important marketing tools in a company’s toolkit —and it goes without saying that it needs to be done well for the company to successfully sell its goods or services.

See how powerful words can be?
