How a Copywriter Will Save You TimeAugust 17th 2010 Sally Ormond copywriter, copywriting tips, freelance copywriter, marketing tips
Time is the most precious commodity in society. It’s the one thing we all wished we had more of.
So what if told you there was a way that I could provide you with more of it? How great would that be?
Well, if you read on, you’ll discover how that is possible.
Picture this scene:
It’s a typical British summer’s day – it’s raining; I’m standing in a bus queue and start to chat to a guy in a pink shirt:
Pink shirt: ‘Miserable today isn’t it?’
Me: ‘Yes, beginning to wish I hadn’t left the office.’
Pink shirt: ‘What do you do?’
Me: ‘I’m a copywriter’ [Pink shirt nods but has no idea what I’m talking about] ‘I write web copy, press releases, newsletters…’
Pink shirt: ‘Oh.’
Me: ‘But most importantly I save my clients time.’
That’s the killer – I save my clients time. That (as far as my clients are concerned) is one of the top reasons they higher me – other than my creation of eye-catching, persuasive copy and vast range of copywriting services of course.
Whether you run your own business you know how important time is. There never seems to be enough to get everything done.
Shall I tell you why?
Because you are trying to do too much.
If you own your own business you know the more successful you are, the less time you have which is why you hire people to help you out. Your time is precious so you need to ensure it is being used wisely.
A lot of business people are capable of writing their own copy (but many aren’t and the smart ones know they aren’t). But it is time consuming. To help your business flourish you need to let go of some of the work. A copywriter will help you with that.
By building a relationship with a good copywriter they will get to know your business and use their creativity to help devise new and innovative ideas.
Even if you are a large company with a number of staff, what would be best? Getting an untrained staff member to knock our mediocre marketing that doesn’t work, or invest in a copywriter who know their onions and will produce great copy that sells?
Try the latter and you’ll see the difference it will make.
