A picture can tell a thousand words, but only words can convince prospective buyers to take action.
What’s your product? What does it do? Who is it for?
What it will do for the buyer? What are the great benefits this product will deliver?
Who I am? Are the people behind this product trustworthy? Do they know what they’re talking about? Do they understand the buyer’s current problem that this product is supposed to solve?
What the buyer needs to do next. A persuasive Call to Action.
Copywriting addresses two audiences: users & search engines.
First the buyer that’s looking for your product and second, SEO or Search Engine Optimization. Web search engines, such as Google and Bing, use computer algorithms to evaluate websites for relevance. They use this evaluation data to rank results when a topic or product is searched through search engines. This process affects the ‘visibility’ of a website. The higher the ranking assigned to a website, the easier it is for people to find it in the results that Google or Bing return when a search is made. A website is more ‘visible’ when it is ranked highly by search engines. Therefore, it is vitally important that your website rank as highly as possible to enable potential buyers to find your products as easily as possible. This process is called Search Engine Optimization.
In the early days of the World Wide Web, search engines were unsophisticated in their ranking criteria. Web copywriters could simply cram the site with ‘keywords’ such as for a bakery; cake, pastry, bread, fresh baked, piping hot, bagel, yeast, rye bread, sourdough, flatbread, etc. Now, it’s not so easy. The Search Engine ranks websites by competence, expertise, interaction, readability, how current is its information, do other websites cite it as a reference, how often is new content added, how naturally is the copy written, trust, uniqueness, load speed, visitor traffic, anchor text distribution, engagement metrics, quality of Tweeted links, Facebook shares, mentions of brand or domain in the news media or press, and many other criteria. This makes it tough to fool the Search Engines. The only way to have a highly ranked website is to have a GREAT, regularly-updated website that is viewed and cited by many people.
