Tools to write great website copy
STEP 1: Anatomy Of A Web Page
These are the sections of a web page. Don’t worry about pictures and videos right now, just focus on what text you want on each page. Check out the diagram below. Here’s what you need to focus on for your part of the project:
- Header (Title of page)
- Body Copy
- Sub-Header (Sub-Title)
- Additional Body Copy
- Call-To-Action (why should they contact you right now?)
Here are the questions you should be asking yourself when writing the copy for each page:
- What is the goal of this page?
- Which audience/persona is this page targeting?
- Which phase of their buying cycle is this page addressing?
- Based on the topic you’re covering, what are the 3 primary benefits you want to communicate?
- What keywords and phrases do you want to pop up for on page 1 of Google?
