Talking to Strangers

Writing compelling copy for yourself can be challenging. Authenticity and genuine conversations with your audience lead to the most effective messaging.

Writing compelling copy for yourself should be easy, right? For some reason, I found it way harder than writing for clients. It was like trying to talk to a stranger at a party.

Sounds simple. But the reality? I second-guessed every word.

I was so involved in my business that I couldn't see outside of it.

So I decided to hire a professional copywriter to help me out. My personal wingman, so to speak. They would start a conversation and portray me in the best light.

Meanwhile, I would just sip my drink and wait for others to talk to me.

It didn’t go as planned…

Since they didn't understand my audience, their icebreakers were too generic and boring. It got the party-goers yawning and didn't spark any real interest.

Then, as I was trying to get the copywriter back on the right track, I suddenly found all the right words.

I realized that conversations can help you find the most authentic messaging.

So when in doubt, just be genuine. Your content is more likely to resonate with your audience.
