Strategic Copywriting

Engage your audience.

Our talented copywriters write unique, compelling content that enhances website performance, unifies brand messaging, promotes search engine optimization, and creates a strong foundation for your business's communication strategy. We do this by recognizing the fundamental principles of great copy, and putting the work into supporting your business’s goals and objectives, with words.

Clean Copy

Effectiveness starts with solid, clean copy. That means perfect spelling and grammar, as well as having the right voice. It means not finding archaic or borderline-nonsense English words like "avail" and "revert" in place of commonly used verbs throughout a site. It means having the punctuation in the right places. Clean copy is the backbone of credibility for a site or a blog or a post.

Doing the Brand Research

Assuming you have the basics in place, there’s also the issue of doing brand research and applying it to copy. It’s easy enough to "write a page" but there’s often a lot of work that goes in behind the scenes. That might start with reviewing a logo design or a press kit. It might mean interviewing top managers at a company. Why do this kind of work? Because it gives writers the tools with which to create, not just great copy, but targeted, effective copy that sells. It’s the investment in quality that pays off down the line, and becomes a critical part of building out copy for a site.

When our copywriters go to work, they collect the information that they need to make good decisions about where to go with pages: they look at the client company’s history and what it sells, as well as past marketing efforts and other data. Doing "due diligence’ helps make the copy results much more effective – that, plus a dedication to clean, compelling copy, helps us to deliver the results that make web content work. When it’s readable, engaging, targeted and on point, you see the difference all of the way down the line – in terms of page views, and in terms of eventual conversions and even client retention. Try it, and you’ll see that having the right copy is more than just "dressing up" a project. It changes the way your marketing works on the web – for the better!

  • We have been working with Jenny and the WebSubstance team since 2009. We just finished revamping our website and it looks fabulous. We also implemented SEO and made a responsive version for tablets and mobiles. I enjoy working with Jenny. She is patient, professional and honest. She tells you everything to expect ahead of time, and goes above and beyond of what is she is supposed to do. She always has great suggestions. Whatever we need, even if it’s not website-related, she tries to help. She is always available to answer questions. She takes the time to explain things clearly and as a result, I have learned a lot from her. We love Michael’s photography too, and we will be using him again to take photos at our annual fundraising galas. I highly recommend WebSubstance.

  • Websubstance has exceeded my expectations with the development of a new company website. They have integrated the various aspects of my company into one cohesive website that is easy to navigate as well as vibrant and eye catching. Websubstance has also taken over management of the Google Ad words campaign and our Search Engine Optimization. This is a critical part of business development that needs to be constantly evaluated and improved. With the monthly updates and analysis report, I can easily monitor their work. Any adjustments I have requested have been attended to immediately. I feel our company is in good hands and it is reassuring to know I am working with a local company.

In addition, I like to use local firms that are not part of a huge business. She will do as little or as much as you are comfortable with, including graphics, photos and SEO. We received personalized service with a great deal of patience on her part, and we are happy with the outcome. Dr. Richard Rubino D.D.S.
