Enhance Your Copy and Content Writing Skills by Following This Golden Rule of Writing

Have you ever read something and completely spaced out? Or started thinking about what you're reading? Rather than just reading? This is the kiss of death for us writers … Because the minute a reader gets distracted, your chances of moving them forward toward action come crashing down. The fix? Something we call the golden rule of good writing … Like many great copywriting principles, it appears simple on the surface. But when consistently used, it makes everything you write more effective. It's also an easy way to improve copy and content others have already written. (Great way to provide value when you're just starting out!)

From Good to Great: Creating Daily Writing Habits

You become a great writer by writing regularly … daily in fact. In our industry, the A-list copywriters like Clayton Makepeace, Mike Palmer, Marcella Allison, and Jedd Canty weren't overnight successes. By this I mean, they didn't wake up one day, decide to write a sales letter, and the next day it broke records for their clients. And they don't possess a special writing gene. Nope, instead they were constantly learning and constantly writing. That is the only way to become a better writer. You must practice your craft. Sandy Franks shares a few tips on how you can go about upping your writing skills by practicing.

A Simple Technique That Fixes Boring Passages of Copy (and Instantly Creates Points of Curiosity for Your Reader)

Boring copy is dismissible. Which means the results will be lower … Which means you're leaving money on the table — both for your clients, and for yourself. Fortunately, the technique Senior Copy Chief Sandy Franks teaches below is a cure for boring, dismissible copy.

This Technique Makes Your Copy 10x Stronger and You’ll Want it to Become Part of Your Writing Habit (It’s What All A-List Copywriters Do to Ensure Winning Packages)

Reading copy (even content) out loud became a regular part of our writing routine. And it's something all A-list copywriters do without fail. Why? Because reading out loud helps you pick up little nuisances that could have an impact on response and or conversion rates … for example, awkward transitions that can stop a reader. When your reader moves from one paragraph to another, he/she expects it to flow naturally. But if there's an awkwardness, the reader begins to wonder what's going on. And the minute that happens … your reader isn't paying attention to the copy any longer.

3 Good Reasons to Invest in the Structure of Your Business

So many people who come to me for mentoring tell me they won't feel confident enough to start looking for clients "until they have all their ducks in a row." And that makes sense … When you're starting something new, you need a solid foundation. Otherwise, you feel like you're floating out there, unmoored and without an anchor. That kind of instability is very unsettling. I get that. The best way to fight that instability is by having a strong foundation. Building the structure of your business before you begin looking for clients will make you feel much readier to take the inevitably challenging steps required to actively pursue the clients you want. Here are three good reasons to invest the time to do this.

B2B Writers: 4 Ways to Use ChatGPT as a Tool (Not a Crutch.)

ChatGPT didn’t write this article. That’s important. Because as a B2B writer, you should never surrender control of your work to an AI. That’s akin to a home improvement contractor handing over the renovation plans to a drill, saying, “Take it from here.” AI is a powerful writing tool that can help you in a myriad of ways. But if you treat it like an app to delegate critical tasks to, your work won’t reach the level of excellence that B2B clients expect. So, how do you use ChatGPT as a tool and not a crutch? Here are four practical ways.
