Why Copywriting Matters So Much

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Today’s article isn’t inspired by a question; it’s inspired by a statement. I was talking to a young woman who was thinking through her career options. She was good at writing (I’m sure you can relate) and was interested in copywriting. Her big objection to it, though?
“Yeah, but I want my job to really mean something.”
She had no idea how much she didn’t understand.
People tend to think of marketing and sales as bad things; “forcing” people to buy things they don’t need.
That is so very, very much not what copywriting is.
Copywriting is about connecting people who have a need to that solution to that need.
Copywriters do that by using words that resonate with the audience, and then crafting a message that contains the key points that audience needs to hear.
Sure, some needs are greater than others. A mother-to-be with prenatal complications who needs to find a hospital with a great prenatal and natal program has a pretty serious need. A mom and pop business owner who needs to find a fast and cost-effective shipping service has a need that’s maybe not as serious, but still pretty darn important to them.
Here’s the thing: Without that effective communication, without copywriting, people would have a harder time finding solutions to their needs or problems.
I’m not in the least exaggerating when I say that businesses have folded because they were unable to convey their benefits, and convey them in a way that made sense to consumers. And if those consumers can’t find that business that perfectly meets their needs, they lose out, too.
Copywriting is crucial to a robust economy. But it’s also crucial to helping your average person find things or services or people that help them, make them happier, or make living easier.
Copywriting isn’t just “writing banner ads.” It’s creating connections that help businesses grow and lives improve. Copywriting matters. I don’t just enjoy it; I’m proud to do it. And, if you’re a fellow practitioner, you should be, too.
