Always room for improvement- Alanna Birmingham will share her discoveries

Notes:

How do we feel about our content writing?

  • There is usually room for improvement;
  • Writing good copy takes a lot of practice;
  • Most of us are copywriting because we usually include a CTA

Writing great title and first paragraph – Use the PAS model – Problem-Agitator-Solution model

Writing for people with no awareness of what you do – Use the AIDA model – Awareness – Interest – Desire – Action

Important to use emotional words  – https://buffer.com/library/words-and-phrases-that-convert-ultimate-list

Pay attention to benefits rather than features.  When you’ve got the features list ask “so what?”  to get the benefits.
