Learn the secrets of writing compelling copy for your business & rewrite your site
You know that you need your website to work FOR you, as your hardest working 24/7 employee - but how do you know where to start?
How can you tell whether what you’ve written is any good? How many pages should your site even have? How long is too long for a web page?
You’ve read so many of your competitors’ websites that you’re starting to lose your sense of who you are and what makes you unique. If you’re honest with yourself, your website reads like the average of all the sites in your industry - it’s bland and generic, and doesn’t help you to stand out.
You’ve asked friends, family and colleagues for feedback - and what you’ve got back is confusing and contradictory advice.
You keep ending up on sales calls with clients who are not the right fit for you. It’s wasting their time and yours. You know that your copy could be doing some of the heavy lifting here for you - answering potential clients’ questions, dealing with objections, filtering out bad-fit clients, and making clear your value so that you don’t have to haggle on price.
You know that you’re too close to your business and your website to be objective about it - you can’t see the wood for the trees.
You want to give people enough information to make a buying decision with - but without being too wordy or too salesy. And when you’re a solopreneur, how do you draw the line between the personal and the professional? When should you stop writing about yourself? How much is too much information?
You have a hazy sense that there’s a set of rules out there for what works when writing for your business - but at the same time, you don’t want to sound cookie-cutter or formulaic. And you really don’t want to write copy that’s manipulative or pushy.
You’re used to D.I.Y-ing your business - and you want to build solid copywriting skills that you can use every day - but going it alone here isn’t really working for you.
What if you worked 1:1 with an expert guide?
You could feel proud of your website and confident of your ability to write more to grow your business.
You could understand the ‘rules’ of writing online, well enough to be able to bend them just enough to sound like you.
You could stop procrastinating on this and just get it done!
If you’re ready to have a website that reflects who you really are, and that makes your potential clients wonder how you got inside their heads, it’s easier than you think. However long you’ve been procrastinating, now is the time.
Your website can be your greatest ally, working through the night for you to attract the clients you most want to work with. And I can help you make that happen.
I’m an editor turned writing and messaging coach. I work with creative entrepreneurs to help them find the right words so they can get known for being who they really are. I’ll help you to create a website that sounds like you on your best day and speaks directly to your dream clients’ greatest needs, hopes and dreams.
Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a born writer, you have a huge advantage over any copywriter you hire in to write your site for you. You know your business (and yourself) inside out. It would take any outsider, however skilled, hours, and hours, and hours to get even a tenth of the inside knowledge that you have - and then they would need to be able to write in your voice too.
Copywriting is a craft rather than an art - it’s eminently learnable, and you have many of the skills you’ll need already (because if you’re anything like the other entrepreneurs I work with, you’re creative, empathetic and good at connecting with and understanding your clients).
What they’re saying:
”Sophy is a copywriter extraordinaire.”
“I've been able to clarify my target and my message and to create a website that hits the right note… I got practical input that wasn’t formulaic and wasn’t based on what “should” be done. Sophy completely took into account not only my business needs but who I am as a person.”
As a result of our work together in Web Copy Essentials, you’ll have:
A website you’re proud of, that sounds like you and that attracts your dream clients
Training in the basics of pro copywriting, & a reliable framework you can keep coming back to, taking the guesswork out of writing
A good understanding of how to get inside your clients’ heads, so you can write copy that resonates every time
So how does it work?
It’s a 1:1 programme that runs over 6-8 weeks (depending on both of our schedules and how much time you’ll have to write and revise each week). You need to be sure when you sign up that you have the time to commit to it over the 6-8 weeks - I believe that deadlines and accountability are key to getting this done, so I’ll hold you to this timescale.
Here’s what you get included in the package:
Clarity Questions - before we get started, these questions and writing prompts will start to get your creative juices flowing and give us a firm foundation for our work together.
Detailed training - 10 bite-sized modules on how to write engaging and compelling web copy that your clients will connect with on an emotional level (because buying is an emotions-first-rationalise-later experience). You’ll receive your training as a pdf in 10 short chapters that break copywriting down to its simplest building blocks. You’ll be able to refer back to this e-book every time you come to write anything for your business in the future.
Templates that you can tweak to fit your own business and story (and use again and again in the future). These are ‘plug and play’ - they’ll give you all the structure you need to start writing your three core pages (Home, About & Sales). You’ll get your templates as shared Google Docs (for our eyes only) so we can collaborate fully.
The 1:1 guidance & support you need as you start writing your first drafts, safe in the knowledge that you’ll get expert help at every stage. I’ll be commenting directly on your Google Doc drafts and also sending you video walk-throughs of my thoughts on what you’ve written so far. You’ll get expert tips on how to bring out your unique voice and story.
Customer research strategy, so you can give centre stage to your clients’ stories and experiences.
3 video calls (1 x 60 mins; 2 x 30 mins). The first is to kick off the process, the other two are so we can talk through anything you’re stuck with (you can choose when to schedule them to best support you through the process).
Unlimited email support (Mon-Fri in business hours) during the programme - all your questions answered within two business days, so you’re never left hanging.
Access to my ‘little black book’ of recommended web designers, visual branding experts, photographers, social media consultants, SEO experts etc. I’ll also hand-pick resources (articles, books, podcasts etc) just for you, so you get extra depth without the overwhelm.
2 rounds of revisions - I’ll mark up your draft copy with suggestions, tweaks and changes in Google Docs and send you a video walk-through; then you go away and make changes; then we go through the cycle again.
3 perfectly-polished pages to form the heart of your website (your Home Page, About Page and Sales Page) plus a plan for everything else you want to write as part of your site.
Your investment is £950.
This is a fraction of what it would cost to get a decent copywriter to write the site for you, and this way everything is absolutely in your voice (because you wrote it!) and you're learning how to hone one of the most critical skills in online business.
As your business grows and changes, you'll easily be able to go in and make updates or changes to your copy, knowing that you’re still following the principles of good copywriting.
Interested in working together? Fabulous! Here’s how it works:
If Web Copy Essentials sounds like it might hit the spot for you, the first step is to book a call with me. We’ll check if we’re the right fit and see if now is the right time for you to invest in your copy (if you haven’t got your core message dialed in yet, that would be more of a priority, so my Story Power programme might be more useful to you…).
Before our consultation, I’d like to know a bit about you and what you’d like to get out of working with me, so when you book your call, I’ll be asking some questions as part of the booking process.
At the scheduled time of your consultation call, we’ll use the opportunity to make sure we’re the perfect fit before you commit.
If you decide to work with me, I’ll tell you the exact steps for getting started. If you decide not to work with me or if were not a perfect fit, I’m happy to share other resources to help you get what you need.
But before you hit the button below to set up the call, please bear this in mind - Web Copy Essentials is not for you if:
you just want someone to take the whole thing off your plate and write your site for you
you already consider yourself to be a pro copywriter and are on top of all the skills involved in writing for the web
you don’t react well to feedback (even when delivered kindly!)
you’re not clear on your niche and message
you don’t want to do any customer research
However, if you DO want to write your own shiny new web copy with heaps of personal support, and training that will stand you in good stead for everything else you need to write for your business, please do go ahead and set up a call with me - I’d love to discuss how we could work together.
And if you have any questions you’d like me to answer in the meantime, I’m very happy to answer them - just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
