Read on for some common examples of what a copywriter’s expertise can create for your business.
Any marketing piece that is required to promote your brand, a product, an event, a sale or a service can be written by a copywriter.

It is a must for your web content to be written by a professional. Everything website related should be done by professionals: the content should be written by a copywriter, the design should be done by a qualified web designer and it should be developed by an experienced team of developers. This will ensure that your website is user friendly, informative and designed to convert visitors into customers. A copywriter, using your input and business information, can write all the pages that go onto your website.
Even better? SEO copywriters can gear the copy towards Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) which means that your website is written to organically climb the search engine rankings ladder and grab the keyword traffic from competitors.
Another common job for copywriters is to write informative and engaging blog posts, for onsite or offsite publication. Blogs can be used:
- As part of an SEO strategy
- To inform clients about their products or services
- To educate
- To entertain
- To be used as part of a newsletter
- To be shared as social media posts
- As part of a content marketing strategy
Blogs can be posted on the business’s website as information for their visitors and to be used in other digital marketing efforts, such as social media posts or newsletter emails, or they can be posted as offsite content. Offsite content is posted on other high-traffic sites and used to create backlinks leading to the business’s website. This is used to increase traffic and domain authority. Both offsite and onsite blogs should be written by copywriters in order to ensure a professional tone, an enjoyable read and the natural inclusion of SEO keywords to increase visibility.
A common request for copywriters is to compose biographies or LinkedIn profiles for high-profile members and senior managers of businesses. These biographies or profiles are used on social media and on the “About Us” page of websites. It is important for businesses to use their skills so that their most influential leaders are portrayed in a good light, it will not only make your business appear competent and experienced; it will also assist leaders in creating a strong digital track record of their qualifications and experience. The copywriting services for LinkedIn profiles is often included as part of social media marketing packages. The faces of your business should be represented in the best way possible, through the well-composed words of a copywriter.
Product descriptions form an integral part of e-commerce websites, printed or online catalogues, as well as promotional material. It is important that product descriptions are composed by professional content marketing experts to ensure that they are not too vague, that they carry the most important benefits across, that they meet industry standards and that they are geared towards the key audience.
