Three Questions You Must Answer To Create Great Sales Copy

Whether you are going to create all the copywriting for your business yourself, or are going to employ a copywriter, the only way that the sales copy which is written can be effective, is if three very important questions are answered beforehand.

The first is one which copywriters going back to the earliest days of advertising have wanted the answer to, and that is what is the product’s unique selling proposition, or USP as it is more commonly referred to. The simple truth is that a business owner wanting to sell a product or service, you must be able to identify what the USP is.  In other words, what differentiates your ‘widget’ from all the other widgets.

Mobile Websites – Marketing to a Brave New World

So what is it about mobile web designs that makes them so popular? Is it that mobile websites are creatively designed, or is that they are more user-friendly and easy to navigate from almost anywhere?

We live in a fast moving world, a world where people seem to be too busy in their busy routines and lifestyles to go through boring, lengthy pieces of text, content has been shortened from long stories to shorter ones, social media updates and even two-liner tweets on Twitter. This clearly indicates changing preferences and mindsets.
