Digital copywriting is a specialized skill that delivers business value.
Want to write the copy yourself? That’s probably a mistake. Our expert digital copywriters deliver all the value below when they write your website.
Balances multiple needs
Great web copywriters find a balance between providing clarity of information and incorporating keywords. And they do it all with the style and voice your brand requires.
Saves you time (and probably money)
Hiring a digital copywriter saves your team the time and (potentially) the headaches that can come from trying to write digital copy yourself. Especially if you’ve never done it before.
Your website copy is one of the most important elements in converting your site visitors to qualified prospects or sales. A beautifully designed site with weak copy will underperform.
Optimizes for search
Experienced copywriters know how to incorporate SEO keywords, drive organic traffic and create a strategic content hierarchy for your website. They also ensure the writing is the right length and targeted to an appropriate reading level for your users.
Translates your business to users
Almost all business writing is inappropriate for website copy due to jargon, length or complexity. Copywriters translate your industry-specific information into language that converts users to customers.
Does a lot with a little
Effective copywriting says a lot with just a few words. Copywriters are experts at boiling your messaging up to the most important concepts, and communicating them with style and grace.
Contributes to strategy
Digital copywriters do more than just write the copy on your website. They contribute to strategic discussions about how best to position your company and meet your business goals with the creative work that will follow.
Provides marketing expertise
Copywriters are often experts in storytelling, brand building and digital marketing and will incorporate that knowledge when they’re writing the copy for your website.
Tiller has the patience, the process, and the people to help you navigate unexpected challenges. That’s the hallmark of a great partner.
Five common copywriting myths – busted!
Anybody can write copy
Lots of companies have people that write well. But that doesn’t mean they’re equipped to balance clarity of information, brand voice, and keyword inclusion with the punch and focus that digital copy demands. Non-copywriters who write website copy can make damaging mistakes without even knowing it. Your brand and business suffer as a result.
Copywriting isn’t strategic
You’re telling your brand story with your website. That’s the domain of copywriters, especially those with creative or storytelling backgrounds. Our digital copywriters contribute to the content strategy, information hierarchy, and wireframing of your website so your brand story shines through on every page.
Copywriters don’t know enough about my business to add value
Understanding is part of what you’re buying when you hire a copywriter. Digital copywriters first work to understand your business goals, key messages, and audience. Then they take dense, jargon-heavy or specialized information and translate it to lean digital copy that drives results. This is a core part of a copywriter’s job and the best ones do it brilliantly.
Short copy is easier to write than long copy
Nope. As digital copywriting has evolved to suit mobile-first or mobile-only audiences, sites use fewer and fewer words. Which means every word has to deliver more value. It’s a lot easier to dump a ton of information on a website than it is to be strategic and write sharp, lean headlines and body copy. It’s a lot less effective too.
All I get from a copywriter is copy
Clients are often surprised at the extra value copywriters add beyond the finished copy for their websites. They often end up clarifying their overall organizational messaging as part of the copywriting process. They strengthen (or reimagine) their brand positioning and definition. And they get a head start on marketing activities for after the launch of their website.
