We get this question a lot: “Do I need a web writer?”
My answer is always, “Yes.”
- It takes a good web writer to write economically (i.e., not too much but not too little).
- A good web writer knows how to jumpstart your web site’s search engine optimization (by using words and phrases that your potential customers and qualified leads use to search for services like yours).
- It takes a good web writer to treat your business objectively, giving it the content that will bring your target audience(s) to your website.
Traditionally, graphic design has been orderly: a copywriter writes the copy and a graphic designer makes it visually sing.
Somehow, this orderly universe was disrupted in 1996 or so by the incredible speed with which the Internet crashed over all of us.
The geeks — the ones who knew how to program a web page — found themselves in control of this new world. Because they didn’t know anything about graphic design, their pages looked pretty bad — and they simply required their customers to provide copy, which usually wasn’t any better.
Most small- and medium-sized businesses didn’t know enough to hire their own writers, or a producer to oversee the process and a designer to ensure that what was programmed was actually any good.
And, in some pockets of this world, this is still how business is done.
We want you to be happy with your final web site, and for nothing to be left out or forgotten in the process. And even though you may not know design principles, you know what you like. Basecamp Productions gives that to you.
In short, we let designers design and writers write. Your budget won’t know the difference, but you will. We also provide a producer to oversee the process — all at no additional cost to you. Call us today. 410.404.5559.
