Optimised Website Content
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 keyword traffic from competitors.
On- and Offsite Blog Posts
Another common task for copywriters is to write informative and engaging blog posts, for onsite or offsite publication. Blogs can be used:

Offsite blogs are 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 to ensure a professional tone, an enjoyable read and the natural inclusion of SEO keywords and links to increase visibility.
Professional Biographies or Profiles
