by Albert on January 23, 2012


The Local Method BadgeAfter a short break from producing the podcast, I am back with the first episode for 2012.

Today’s episode is about the importance of copywriting for your business. My guest is Gloria Rand who is a copywriter herself. She shares some of her experience and great tips on this important part of your marketing message.

Copywriting is often times thought as a mysterious skill by some people. It is also said if you read a headline or ad and it doesn’t seem like your being sold to, then that is a good bit of copywriting being done.

Here are just a few tips from the interview.

  • Copywriting is important because you have 3-5 seconds to capture people’s attention or else they are going to hit the back button or click off to somewhere else.
  • When writing your message have your target customers needs in mind.
  • Reviews and testimonials are so important in writing good copy.
  • Have clear and concise offers for your readers (Calls to action).
  • Have your phone number clearly displayed on your site.

Gloria also shares some resources for listeners of The Local Method to learn to become better copywriters for their own online and offline marketing:
