The great thing about great copywriting, whether it appears on your webpages, your blog or your e-blasts is that it is a gift that keeps on giving. As a business owner a constant ‘eye on the KPI’ (key performance indicators), is a must do task. But ROI (return on investment) is not easy to measure when it comes to spend on great copywriting.
Think about it this way ~ you may have read that posting to your blog 16 times a month is much more productive (3.5 times more actually), than posting just a few times a month. Given that the material included is unique, fresh and engages your audience, the blog benefits will compound over time as the traffic that finds it through organic searches will continue to grow as the clock ticks along.
It is important that whatever your spend on copywriting you realize that your return on investment will come over time and not in 30 days.
Present industry statistics quote:
- Article fees $250-$800 per article
- Press releases at $500-$1000 per release
- Blog posts at $150 -$800 per post
- E-newsletter creation at $800-$1500 per release.
It is equally imiportant that you develop a strategy for sharing the content you have paid for and create a distribution, recycling and reboot program. This is something that an experienced PR/Marketing specialist can manage for you, if you are too busy with your other daily tasks to stay on top of production and timelines.
The use of e-blasts and newsletters is highly successful in ROI if you produce the right messaging. For the business owner or marketing manager, the employment of a ‘right hand’ adjunct to their team of a seasoned content writer, that will pitch worthy ideas, develop a following for the educational yet creative wordsmith skills they develop and automatically write with a strong SEO/keyword strategy is well worth the investment.
Interestingly copy produced that is longer will generally outperform shorter versions, and video and photograph visuals are a must. For best results with Google searches it is suggested to furnish content that is between 2000 to 2400 words in length, although obviously the quality of the content is keenly important.
The producer of the copy should be an authentic source with a genuine knowledge of the industry and an understanding of the mentality of the target audience. Hopefully based on personal experience that is deeply embedded in your specific marketplace and that can educate and chat with your prospective and repeat clients effectively in an approachable, accessible manner.
While the dollar investment numbers in the PR/Marketing industry mentioned above may seem expensive at first glance, the positive results for your business where your website is a productive sales funnel with dynamic content that changes frequently and draws consumers in, can yield impressive boosts in sales.
