It's not about you… sorry!

One of the biggest mistakes we make when writing copy is to think too much about ourselves.

Although your website is a showcase for what your business has to offer, your potential clients aren't thinking about you when they come to your site.

They are thinking about themselves. Can this business meet my needs? Does this business understand me? As hard as it might be to do so, step aside and put your clients desires ahead of your own will to promote your business. Listen before you speak.

Get Personal

A common misconception is that if we are personal in our writing, we seem unprofessional. People want to know that your are human, and it's important to address them as humans too!

So don't talk about users, think about the people and try to avoid personas.
