How Copywriting Increases Sales

The truth is most copywriters try to tell you that they will increase your sales. They suggest the words on the page really make the difference between who comes to your website and who buys from you.

And for a long time, I thought that was true.

I thought that my words had the power to help make a difference in the lives of businesses. But they don’t. Not alone, anyway.

In fact, alone, my words on a page are about as useless as any other piece of the sales or marketing funnel acting by itself – kind of like a phone that rings and rings but no one answer it.

Instead, all of the pieces of your sales funnel, including copywriting, have to act together. So, how can copywriting increase your sales?

Reasons Why a Great Copywriter Trumps SEO

If you’re like me, every day you hear the term SEO thrown around the online marketing space. But have you ever wondered if SEO keyword writing is even that relevant to our current marketplace? Years ago SEO writers would stuff pages of content with as many keywords as possible, but now that Google’s algorithms have gotten increasingly complex, the best SEO content you can create is simply well-written content that users find relevant. Of course keywords are important as people utilize them to search online but it’s outdated to base the entire article or post content around them exclusively.

When you come across well crafted online marketing copy that makes you stop and engage, you simply are not seduced by the SEO keywords. While you might have typed the SEO keywords into Google, they alone are not what make you stay on the site or buy the product. Then why do you stay? Because a copywriter used words to tap into something deeply human within you. Something that SEO analytics will never be able to do.
