According to American Writers & Artists Institute, copywriting is the process of writing persuasive marketing and promotional materials that motivate people to take some form of action, such as:
- make a purchase
- click on a link
- donate to a cause
- schedule a consultation
Copywriting differs slightly from Content writing.
Where copywriting refers to writing marketing and promotional materials, content writing refers to writing informational or editorial pages for websites, such as blog posts, article pages, or product pages.
The following statistics show how print and online copywriting is an integral part of most modern businesses:
- Traditional direct-mail packages, which are sent directly to people’s homes, are currently used by 56% of companies in the U.S. (AWAI.com)
- 81% of these companies plan to maintain or increase usage of direct mail in the next year.
- In the digital realm, 90% of all organizations use online content marketing. (demandmetric.com)
- 70% of businesses are actively investing in content marketing (Hubspot 2020).
- 43% of marketers familiar with company spending say their 2021 budgets were higher. And two-thirds of this group (66%) expect increases in the 2022 budget. (One in five says the increase will be greater than 9%.) (contentmarketinginstitute.com)
- Nearly 67% of businesses rely on outside help to create their online content. In other words, they hire external copywriters. (AWAI.com)
B2B buyers have changed.
They no longer rush to contact you when they have questions about your products or services. B2B buyers may not even speak with your sales reps until they are more than 70% of the way through their decision-making process.
They prefer to search on their own and may engage with up to 5 pieces of content.
Brandfocal’s copywriting and content strategy focuses on providing relevant and engaging copy to get found in search engines, inspire brand trust, and boost conversion.
Our content development and writing process begins with understanding your business goals, market, audience, and identity.
Extensive research is conducted for consumer search trends, topics, and competition in your market to ensure that your content appears in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) and improves click through rate.
Answer their questions.
B2B companies tend to use more written sales materials than their B2C counterparts. Their products and services are often very high-ticket purchases that other businesses need to consider carefully.
For example, if a hospital is considering buying a new LASIK machine, it can cost over $300,000 each at the high end. And many people at the hospital will be involved in that purchasing decision, from managers, to health and safety advisors, to clinical staff who will be using the machine.
It can be a long process, and companies who sell LASIK machines need to have extensive marketing materials to support potential customers (mostly doctors in this case) as they make their decision whether or not to buy.
