Content Writing

Words For Websites

The Value Of Content

Sometimes it’s not easy to find the words to do your website justice. The content is the most important element of your presence on the web. It is essential that it conveys the right message.

All too often that message doesn’t get the attention it deserves through lack of time or opportunity for proper research. If you need someone to write for you then I’d be happy to help.

The Rise Of The Machine

It is increasingly important to know what is required when writing content for websites. Not only do you have to think about your human readers – you have to be aware of the machines that read your pages and rank them for search engines.

For the humans I have plenty of experience of creative writing. Historically much of my work was focused on travel and tourism publications. In more recent times I have written many reports, magazine articles and press releases. My target is always to deliver information in a concise and simple fashion. In many respects this approach is ideally suited to writing for websites. Readers are well known for skipping content and it is imperative to communicate efficiently and with the minimum of fuss.

Content And SEO

So what about writing in such a way that your site gets noticed by Google? You’ll probably be aware of SEO (search engine optimisation) for websites. If you are you may also know that it can cost a fortune to outsource this work in order to improve your page rankings.

The first thing to be aware of is that just by adding regular content to your website you will get noticed and this is by far the most effective strategy for achieving the front page of a Google search. However there are things you can do to improve your chances such as choosing and using appropriate keywords, using good titles and tagging your images. My content writing services include all of these things.

What I do

Generally speaking I will work with you to research a subject and write about it. Alternatively I can edit copy that you provide. I can therefore help with things like blogging or preparing pages for web sites. I’d be happy to discuss your needs. Some basic elements of these services are included in my maintenance packages. Beyond these I charge an hourly rate of £30. I would use this to calculate a price – it wouldn’t be an open ended commitment.
