Website Copywriting & Web Copywriting Skills

by : Serge Dandelin

Statistic are showing that over 85% of all online buying decisions are emotional. That means your website copy should talk to your audience. Whenever you are trying to get customers to your website, you have to have great copywriting skills. Copywriting is the process of promoting a business or person. However, just any old form of copywriting is not going to get your website noticed or your business ranked high in the search engines.

You are going to have to make an emotional connection to people by way of writing. The best way to do this is to give the articles a sense of real emotion to them. Let the reader see that the person who is writing is a real person. People love to read things who are done by "real" people. Being able to connect to people on a personal level is the hardest form of writing, but it can easily be done with a little bit of work. Once you find in what emotional state visitors are in, you'll be able to create website copy that is highly effective and talk the right way to your audience.

The first thing that you have to be able to do is relate to the people that are going to be reading your website copy. To do this, you are going to have to know the niche that you are writing to. How old are they, and are they mostly male or female? Being able to relate to them shows the person that is reading it that you know where they are coming from and you have a true calling to help them.

Understanding your niche is very important, You won't talk the same way to a grandmother the way you will be talking to a teenager. Right? This is where your website copy must talk to the right person.

However, this is just one of the emotional connections that you can make to people through writing. Another one that you may want to touch on is the fact that you have to connect with them. This is easier to do when you are talking about them and not about yourself. This can be done in your writing by using words like you, you can, you should, and so on. Try to avoid talking about yourself too much, and do not use things like I, me, mine, etc.

If you are able to connect with people on a deeper level, you are not just gaining a one time buyer. You are gaining someone that is going to build up trust with you, your business, and become a long time customer. That is what you are looking for when you want a successful business. Try connecting to as many groups of people as you can without losing touch with your main niche. This way you are more likely to appeal to a wider range of people. Connecting to customers on a personal level is the best thing for your online business.

To Your Success!
