I talk about the importance of the words on your website a lot. That’s because I’m a copywriter, and, well… they are really, really important. There is a reason why the best copywriters in the world get paid a fortune (I’m talking big six-figure incomes here). They can earn their clients millions of pounds and […]
As sure as night follows day, show me a marketing blog and I’ll show you a post about how ‘content is king’. But everyone must be talking about this marketing strategy for a reason, right?
