Write-Good for Copywriting

copyblogger’s 10 Principles for Turning into a Killer (Copywriter) is a great place to start. Noticing weak spots in your copy is hard at first. With the right tools, you can strengthen your skills.

Write-Good highlights:

  • Passive Voice
  • Long Sentences
  • Weak Words
  • Weasel Words
  • Repeating Words
  • and more…

Remove the Fluff

Food bloggers tell long winded stories before revealing the recipe. A common complain among readers is “Take me to the recipe”.

Once you’ve pitched your So What? you call your reader to action. Recipe blogs are notorious for fluff before the call.

Write-Good identifies verbose sentences. Shorten sentences to reduce the fluff.

A Call to Action

Passive Voice weakens your call to action.
