From properly communicating what the offer is, what the benefit is to the client/customer, and what their buying experience looks like. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Assess what you have, identify the gaps, and make the necessary changes for improvement. It is also important to note, longer copy does not equate to better copy.
