EPISODE 51 | The Dos and Don’ts Of Copy Writing
Words are a very powerful tool, and how you use them can affect both your personal life and business. It can be absolutely vital in your business to master the right way to use words to motivate others. That’s why I invited Jennifer Hudye to join me for a conversation about using words in your business, specifically the dos and don’ts of copy writing.
Jennifer talks about the difference between regular copy writing and “conscious copy” (which just so happens to be the name of her business). She explains how finding the right words to use when selling your products or services can be both effective and righteous.
A lot of you probably know this, but right now using stories and “being authentic” are popular selling tools being used all over in the online marketplace. Jennifer wants to see that become the standard instead of just a gimmick. Being able to sell through writing and sell through speaking are some of the biggest sales skills that you can master.
You can be a fantastic salesperson backed with truth, or you can be a good salesperson who manipulates – it’s pretty evident which one will work better in the long term. So be totally transparent with you customers, especially when it comes to who you are, what you can offer, and why they should buy from you. They’re making an investment not just spending money – but it’s completely up to you to make your customers feel that way.
Jennifer gives my listeners the straight goods as she lists her 5 fundamentals of what conscious copy writing is, and then goes into detail about why each one is important. So get ready for a knowledge upload and take some notes, because I know you’ll want to come back to this episode again and again.
3 Types of Copy
- Internet Marketing Copy Writing- online based, very generic.
- Hope Based Copy Writing- Fluffy words, painted picture that doesn’t go anywhere or technologic copy that your technical terms describe the process.
- Conscious Copy Writing- use the fundamentals of persuasion and selling while still being truthful and educate them to make a decision
