The Art of Copywriting and the Power of Words
SEO copywriting is an art and a science. While stringing a few words together can be done by anyone who can read and type, it isn’t really professional SEO copywriting. Copywriting that attracts, connects and converts is done with care, craft and consideration. Whether you are optimising contextual, video or audio content for your business, you need to create copy that has a considered, authentic tone, and optimise it for the search engines. This way, your ideal customers will be able to identify with your content, and Google will rank your website higher. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to combine the art and science of SEO copywriting for more website traffic and happy customers. This lesson will also cover key SEO Copywriting basics that make it a powerful and critical part of your digital sales strategy.
