Truth is it’s Probably not as Good as You Think!
Most of us probably think our writing is good but what does your audience think? Have you ever asked them? If not, where are you getting your answer to the question…
How is Your Writing?
One of the things that I love so much about owning my blogs is that I am always learning and growing. There is always something to improve on, a skill to hone.
The cool thing about that is I can then give back to the people that visit and read my articles. This particular blog is about the skills I have acquired in building a business around a blog, some of it techincal and some of it, not so much. However, the true theme of this blog and all my blogs comes from “who I really am.”
I have run across some valuable education I want to share.
If you are interseted drop me a note in the comment section and I will be happy to forward you a copy of the eBook I just read from My.Copyblogger, “The 5 P Approach to Copy that Crushes it!”
Where did you learn to write?
Yeah, I know. You learned in school at the age of 5 or 6 but that’s not what we are talking here. There is a world of information available on the web and if you know where to look you can get a world class education FREE.
- Copywriting 101 – How to Craft Compelling Copy
- 10 Rock Solid Elements of Effective Online Marketing
- The Beginners Guide to Building an Audience
- Freelance Blogger Action Plan
These are just a few of the resources I have tapped into and would be happy to share. I have picked up some excellent tips in a relatively short period of time and been able to take action. I used to spend much too much time and energy focused on the wrong things.
There is an old saying in sales: “Focus on the Prospect, not the Product”
That is the first “P” in the eBook “The 5 P Approach to Copy that Crushes it!” The idea is you have to find out what the prospect or “your audience” want and deliver that to them.
I have to admit that I have, absolutely no formal education on writing, however, I have become fairly good at finding whatever I need to improve my skills on this amazing platform for sharing that we all love so much. The good news for you is that I have done all the searching so you don’t have to.
One of the problems I see in much of the online business training is
there is not enough focus on the “writing”. Sure 99% of the training platforms will tell you the importance of good writing or they will frame is as, “quality content” but that’s as far as they go. I have been involved in several online business training programs, the majority of which, I paid good money for, only to find out that at some point they fall short.
You can learn how to build a website and how to use WordPress, what Google Webmaster Tools are all about and maybe even how to get a blog to rank well. The problem comes in when you are not able to write copy that holds your audience’s attention and creates some level of engagement and additionally builds trust and authority.
Being able to put together a website these days is much easier than it was when I first learned and had to write the HTML for everything. Just about anyone can build a site with a few clicks of a mouse and have it live on the web in a matter a minutes if they want to but if they are the only one that reads it, besides maybe mom or a spouse, what is the point?
To be truly succesful in an online business, where your competition is growing as you read this, you have to write great copy.
Would you like to learn to write great copy?
YES – Great! Just ask and I’ll send you the eBook “The 5 P Approach to Copy that Crushes it!” If you find it beneficial come back by I would be happy to send you another. If you Opt In to my Entrepreneurs’ List I’ll send you a eBook bundle and my regular updates.
Being able to sell with words alone, regardless of where you’re physically
located, is the most powerful skill you can have. And remember, this is coming
from a guy who quit practicing law to do this. So I don’t make this claim lightly.”
