The Basics of Writing Copy for Your Website

You might not be the next Ernest Hemingway, but you might be able to take a crack at your web content for your company’s website. Web writing is a kind of writing that is still relatively new, and a style of writing that is constantly evolving with the rapidly changing Internet.

Your website is the modern-day equivalent of knocking on doors for the traveling salesman of decades’ past. While we generally don’t go door-to-door to sell goods and services anymore, the same sales skills still apply: You want to put your best foot forward, you want to show the customer what kinds of products/ services you offer, and you want to make sure that they remember your company’s name at the end of the pitch.
