We’ve all been there…when the words just aren’t coming to you.
You’re staring at the blinking cursor in a word doc…
Drawing a blank in an empty caption box…
Or maybe hitting “compose message” with good intentions but no good ideas for what to put in an email to your list…
Copywriting is a necessary skill no matter what you do for a living. Whether you’re building your personal brand, writing social media captions, updating your website, growing your email list, writing a sales page, you can’t avoid it. Great copy can build trust, deliver value, help you connect with your audience, and encourage them to take action. Copy can do the selling for you.
But writing copy for your personal brand and business can be a struggle if you don’t know how to deliver the right message to the right people strategically (or if you’re just intimidated by writing in general). The more comfortable you can get at communicating and developing your own authentic voice, the more you can create what you want on your own terms, which is why I’m excited to introduce you to my guest this week, copywriting expert Kelsey Formost.
