Commercial copywriting is not a gift…

typewriter-584995_1920It’s a learned skill, and all the great copywriters have got there through sheer hard work — their ability to communicate effectively has much more to do with years of trial and error than creative genius.

So does that mean anyone can be a copywriter? Absolutely — if you’re prepared to learn and put in the hours.
Alas, however, you can’t become a seasoned copywriter overnight.
Look at it this way: at Transition PR we’ve never had ambitions to be a plumber, or a motor mechanic, or a vet. If the washer packs up, or the exhaust drops off the car, or the dog’s swallowed a fish hook (yes, that’s happened!), we go to an expert who knows exactly what they’re doing.
Why is it then that so many business people think they can write better copy than a professional? It’s a mystery to us — and to copywriters the world over — and it breaks our hearts when we see dismal copy underselling great products and services.
So here’s the deal: you focus on what you do best, tell us what you want to say and let us transform your ideas into the words you need to really do your business justice.
This isn’t an exhaustive list but it gives you a good idea of what we can do for you and your business…
