What Impression Does Your Business Make Online?
Bad writing frightens away potential customers. Why? Because, whether you like it or not, you are judged by your writing. Potential customers make assumptions about your education, social class, sophistication, professionalism and level of seriousness based on the clarity of your writing.
Are you a strong writer? Can you afford to allow your website to make the wrong impression? Do you have the time to be consistently writing content for your blog? Do you know how to write an eBook?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, that’s okay. Not everyone can be novelist Ernest Hemingway or columnist George Will.
Many business owners decide to cut costs by authoring content themselves. This strategy often backfires when their content is poorly written, confusing and turns away potential customers.
Admitting your weaknesses is actually a bright business move. Why? Your content will be polished and professional compared to your stubborn competitor who refuses to outsource.
It doesn’t matter how great your product or service is. If you can’t communicate clearly with customers, no one will know.
Why Outsource Your Writing and Editing?
Your business is a labor of love. It’s difficult letting go of the reins and outsourcing services. We understand.
Consider this: Studies have shown the average visitor stays on a website for 10 seconds. That’s right. Just 10 seconds. But if a visitor can be retained for 90 seconds, he will stay for a much longer period of time.
The benefits of outsourcing writing services, however, go beyond visitor retention.
Here are additional reasons hiring a freelance writer or editor can improve your bottom line:
- First impressions matter. You’ll never get a second chance.
- Multiple business experts agree: Outsource your weakness. For many, writing is their weakness.
- It frees you up to devote your time to the tasks you do best.
- Hiring a freelancer is easier on the budget than employing an in-house marketing staff or retaining a digital firm or agency. You won’t be paying salaries, benefits or employee taxes nor will you be paying to cover a firm’s overhead.
- Freelancers bring a fresh prospective to your business.
