Is Your Content "Good Enough"
(See: Forgettable)?

icons8-Boring-50.png

If your content isn't connecting with your readers, they won't invest their time and energy in you. They'll forget about you as soon as the next social media ping cartwheels across the screen like a squirrel wearing body glitter. And you can forget about their money.

Your copy has a J-O-B to do. Not all content deserves your reader's attention, let alone their hard-earned spending cash. The right words leave readers craving your content like gummy bears, a frothy caramel macchiato, or a gummy bear latte. (Please don't do it, coffee giant.) Once your copy connects, your readers won't be able to get enough.

So, why does most copy hang out on the couch, pretending to search for jobs, while it's really playing Candy Crush? 

The missing ingredient in your copy is usually YOU. Shocking, I know. Yes, you. Your story. Your personality. Your why. It's missing. Your content needs you, not a carbon-copy of insert big-name blogger. YOU.

let's kick your content off the couch and put it to work.
