How to Make a Copywriting Business Unique and Stand Out

If there’s one thing that rings true about copywriting, it’s that it’s an ever-changing field. The strategies and techniques that work today may not work tomorrow. That’s what makes it interesting and fun.

But, while it may be fun to dabble in copywriting, if you want to make a living at it, you need to find a way to stand out from the crowd. You need to find a way to make your business distinctive. To find that unique selling point, you need to examine everything from your products to your pricing. If you want to be able to successfully promote your copywriting services, you need to consider all the pieces that make up your business. That starts with your website. And no, we’re not talking about your blog. We’re talking about the actual website that you’ll use to send traffic to.

The Website

When someone visits your website, the first thing that they’ll see is your domain name (website name). After that, they’ll see the rest of the website. When someone lands on your website, you want them to have a good experience. You want them to understand what you’re trying to sell and you want them to be able to navigate easily to where they want to go. All this comes down to having a good website. When it comes to a website, you really have only two options: classic or digital marketing. You can’t really go wrong with either one. They both work. It just depends on what you want to do.

Classic Marketing

When someone lands on your site, they’ll see a classic marketing stack. This means an image of a product (or group of products) followed by text that describes the product(s).

The advantage of this type of marketing is that it’s incredibly easy to set up. You don’t need a lot of technical expertise to put a classic marketing website together. You also don’t need to be limited by what’s available. With a bit of imagination, you can come up with a list of products to showcase and then design the page to fit exactly what you want to say about each product.

Digital Marketing

If you want to stand out from the crowd, you want to go with digital marketing. When someone lands on your site, they’ll see a different set of content. Instead of a list of products, they’ll see a series of text posts with multiple images.

The advantage of this type of marketing is that it’s highly targeted. No one else will have a website that looks exactly like yours. Instead, you’re competing for attention with other websites that look the same. To stand out, you need to do something unique. Unique design. Unique content. Unique calls to action. All of this adds up to make your site stand out.

Why Is Content Still King?

It’s always important to ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” When you set out to create content for your copywriting business, you need to have a clear idea of what you’re trying to achieve. Are you trying to grow your blog? Are you trying to attract potential customers to your site? Whatever your motives, having content that matches your goal in mind will make your job easier and ultimately, the results more effective.

The Product

What you put out into the world determines your success in the copywriting business. And, while you may not always feel comfortable promoting a product you haven’t tried or used personally, it’s important to remember that your potential customers won’t always be coming from the same place you are. When you promote a product you haven’t tried or used, you’re relying on someone else to vouch for its quality. When you promote a product yourself, you’re putting your reputation on the line. This is why honesty is the best policy when it comes to promoting a product.

The Price

Even if you have the best product in the world and you know exactly how to sell it, if you set the price too high, you won’t make any money. Since everyone in your target audience will have different budgets, you need to consider how much you’ll actually need to charge to make a profit. Just because your friend’s cousin’s cousin’s neighbor’s dog-walker’s husband’s ex-roommate’s sister’s best friend’s niece went to university with you doesn’t mean she’ll necessarily have money to spend. You need to look at your potential customers’ current situations and how much you’ll need to charge to make a profit. Remember: you’re in business to make money, you can’t entertain the idea of giving something away for free.

The Placement

Location is always a critical part of any marketing plan. If you want people to visit your website, you need to put it where they’re likely to find it. Depending on your site’s design, you may want to consider placing it on the front page or within the first few pages of results on a search engine.

You also need to think about where you’ll actually promote your site. Will you use social media to reach your target audience? Will you send out email newsletters? Or will you just post on your website’s social media accounts? It’s important to find the right mix of platforms so that you can reach your audience effectively.

The Language Of The Website

In addition to having a good product, a unique website, and a fair price, you also need to have a good understanding of language. If you want to attract the right kind of audience to your site, you need to consider what language they’ll be using. For example, will your website be focused on men or women? Will your audience be from the U.S. or an international audience?

If you’re writing for an English-speaking audience, you don’t need to worry about having a flawless grasp of the language. However, if you’re writing for a non-English-speaking audience or just want to attract an international audience, you need to make sure you have a good command of the language.

The Design

Finally, you need to have a design for your site that makes it easy for someone to understand what you’re trying to convey. When your potential customers visit your site for the first time, you want them to understand exactly what you’re offering without having to read detailed product descriptions. This is why you need to put thought into the design of your site. If you want to create a clear visual language, you need to have a design that supports and reflects that language.

Having a clear design will also make it easier for you to update your site’s content as your business evolves. Instead of having to hunt down specific products or services to write about, you can update your content with very little effort once you’ve determined what the design of your site should be.

Keep all this in mind when you’re ready to create content for your copywriting business.
