What's copy? Copy is the words on your website and in your ads - the words used to sell your products and/or services.

Unfortunately, the first thing most marketers do when they get a website is worry about getting traffic to their site. And while traffic is important, in my opinion, they're putting the cart before the horse.

Why? Because you can have all the traffic in the world, but if your copy isn't up to par that traffic is going to go to waste. It's not going to convert into sales.

It's been my experience that successful sites generally have good to adequate copy, while sites that are struggling generally have poor copy, among other problems.

So, if you're getting traffic to your site, but it's not converting into sales, you should consider hiring a professional copywriter to evaluate and re-work your copy.

It might make all the difference in the world to your bottom line!

I've seen pages/websites looking like 4 years old kids wrote em and doing pretty well with sales. What you sell is also very important.
