Website content copywriting
Writing successful content for websites requires a holistic and multifaceted approach as there are many goals to achieve. Writing engaging and clear text for the visitor to the website is imperative. Clearly signposting how the website works, what to expect within the online customer journey, or enticing visitors to interact with the website are also factors that need to be successfully addressed. Ensuring that the information architecture and structure of the website is clearly annotated and intuitive to use also relies on successful website copywriting. Copywriting, in conjunction with relevant web design features, also plays a role in the website’s performance in terms of search engine optimisation (SEO). Ensuring the imagery or photography works cohesively with the website’s text content is also the remit of the website’s copywriter in conjunction with the web design team.
Even when all aspects of website content copywriting are delivered with great success, there’s still the need to implement an on-going and creative plan for how to keep the website up-to-date and performing as well as it can. With an editorial background and experience of delivering successful marketing campaigns, coming up with engaging, interesting and varied ideas for new, relevant and pertinent copy to keep websites fresh – whilst also upholding a business’ overarching marketing, PR and strategic objectives – is a daily source of innovation for the Loud Ladybird team. Having a genuine journalistic approach, backed up by a trained eye, and being experienced at conveying a ‘house style’ (in terms of the tone of an article), is also such an advantage in writing news and features for websites, as well as continually coming up with a rolling programme of engaging content for a website.
A website ordinarily forms a central component of the digital marketing strategy and can constitute a main focus in terms of digital copywriting. Nevertheless, there is an array of additional digital marketing options and tools that can be extremely effective for generating fresh leads. Each one is underpinned by a specific digital copywriting approach and discipline. From email marketing campaigns through to online and pay per click (PPC) advertising campaigns, the approach required to produce powerful, results-driven copy varies. An understanding of the digital platform in play and which one(s) to utilise for best effect within a digital marketing campaign is vital but so is the ability to produce concise and fruitful digital marketing copy. In some cases, space can be extremely limited (perhaps as little as 25 characters), hence making each and every utterance count is crucial. All of this needs to be combined with a considered approach to the brand in question and how best to translate and showcase an organisation’s values. All of these factors are dictated by a comprehensive and well prepared digital marketing strategy underpinned by a skilled approach in terms of copywriting and design.
Copywriting for social media
Setting up, running and managing social media accounts – including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+ – and coming up with a cohesive and effective social media strategy are regular activities for the Loud Ladybird team. An important aspect of social media marketing is creating and executing interesting, arresting and appealing posts, tweets and updates that provide natural yet effective and professional social interactions that will raise your business’ profile and/or develop fresh leads. Developing an appropriate ‘voice’ and tone – that is befitting of your business, brand, industry and target market – is key. This is an aspect of social media copywriting that fits very comfortably within the editorial skillset of the Loud Ladybird team, as is coming up with imaginative content for social media. Selecting the optimum social media platform(s) is imperative and this is also an aspect of social media marketing that the Loud Ladybird team is experienced in.
