Web copy that connects
Making every pixel persuade
Your website is going to look brilliant. We have no doubts about that.
But what keeps them on the page? Words.
Persuasive copy wins over audiences. It’s what makes them click ‘add to cart’, ‘contact us’, ‘donate’…
Or whatever else it is you want them to do.
More than a box-filling exercise
We know what works for the web – and what doesn’t. Our team are experts on everything from accessibility to CTAs, user experience to clever microcopy.
Introduce us to your designers and we’ll make sure the copy and design work together to win over your customers.
Whether it’s time for the big rebuild or you’re just refreshing your existing site, we’ll help you create web content that boosts your business and builds your brand.
Is your web copy ticking all the boxes?
Clear and concise
Your audience is busy. They need information that is easy to digest and quickly highlights the benefits of your product or service.
Persuasive and memorable
You need to tell them why you’re better than your competitors and form a positive impression of your brand in their mind.
Readable and accessible
Hitting the right readability score for your audience is key, as well as considering factors like F-shaped reading and user experience.
Your copy is your best value brand-building asset. This means we’ll prioritise making your tone of voice consistent across every page.
Your copy needs to answer your audience’s burning questions (this is what Google is looking for).
Write visually. Your reader is looking for information, fast. Break it up and manage your reader’s attention.
The first questions we’ll ask:
Sorting out your website can feel like a mammoth task. Whether your project is one page or one thousand, we’re ready to take on the challenge.
Do you know what you want to achieve?Yes – Great. Tell us more then we’ll get a plan together, discuss your deadlines and get started. No – Don’t worry. That’s what scoping calls are for. We’d love to talk to you about your web content needs and what you want to achieve. Defining the brief before we start writing means you’ll be chuffed with the end result.
Have you got a sitemap?Yes – Get us up to speed, show us your sitemap and we’ll make recommendations along the way. If you have any niggling doubts, now is the time to speak up. Nailing the structure of your site is absolutely critical to your site’s success. No – It can seem daunting to know where to begin, but we can audit your current website, provide recommendations and start your sitemap from scratch. Getting the logic of your story right is the first step to achieving persuasive web content.
Is your tone of voice in good shape?Yes – Brilliant! We’d love to see your guidelines. We’ll start with a few sample pages to check you’re happy. Our writers will use their eagle eyes to hunt for opportunities to inject your personality on every page. No – Rebuilding or refreshing your website is a massive investment. Reviewing (or defining) your tone of voice before you start is a good place to start. We can help with this.
Is your source copy ready?Yes – Let us take a look and see what shape it’s in. We’ll probably ask you lots of questions at this point and check there isn’t any gaps before we start. Our writers off a fresh pair of eyes and identify where you could add value or help readers. No – Organising information can time consuming. Leaving us to the interview your experts can help us gather everything you need and make sure all the information is up to date. (read: The value of interviews. Why it's important to talk to people.)
What you can expect from us
We like to get involved as early as possible. We can even do the sitemap – getting the logic of the story spot on is vital.
We look at your website as a whole, think strategically and make recommendations along the way.
We love working alongside designers so we can make the most of all their templates and wonderful widgets have to offer.
We challenge your brief – should this information actually be across three pages? Why not add a concertina here? Or pull out a statistic here?
