Content Writing

Content First. Design Second.

I have been a web designer for nearly ten years. During this time, I have noticed that a majority of businesses view a new website as just colors and layout. They have neglected the most important part of their site: the content. The content is always last to be addressed, and most often it is copied from an old and outdated site. The copying of old content includes all of the grammar errors and typos, as well.

So I am making the transition from web designer to content writer because I believe the content for a website must ALWAYS come first and should never be neglected. The writing may be an organization’s first impression to a new client or customer.

Best advice for writing web content:

  • » Keep it simple.
  • » Don’t use industry jargon.
  • » Be grammatically correct.
  • » Sound like a human.

Once the compelling content has been achieved, the website’s design will fall into place.
