Hi Marie. Wow! Thanks! What a great video! I am a writer with my own website who sells my books on Amazon and Kindle, and I think you have solved my problem. Hundreds of women have downloaded my books for FREE when offered on Kindle, with a third buying my books for 0.99 cents. I will now go and change the spotlight from me, and concentrate on the customer, or reader, like you suggest and hopefully attract more... tbriggsnovelist.com

Watched a LOT of videos of yours over the years. Obviously I'm not the exact target market you're going after but this video is probably the most useful one I've watched of yours. I've written copy for a long time and heard people beat around the bush about the spotlight method. They didn't say it that way nor were they as succinct as you were. But yea...this is so freaking useful. Taking it beyond copy, every deal I've ever closed at a 1:1 basis looking back I unconsciously did this in my language. Every deal I lost basically was because I did the opposite. Anyhow...really helpful...appreciate it :)
Alpha KoalaGamer (2 months ago)
lol I love how I am aware of the costumer spolight method and notice you using it in your video's script from beginning to end and it's pretty subtle indeed. Hope I can land my copywriting job thanks to all these research I'm doing and your tips. Hope you won't mind me quoting you 😋

Nice video! I think it is a good exercise to identify how big companies apply this in practice. For instance, I would say Apple does only 15% of customer focused copy writing, and the rest is actually product focused. You get a lot of "The brightest and most beautiful retina display ever. Fastest performance with the A12 bionic." and sometimes, more in the middle and end of pages, customer focused copy write like "Find the best Mac for you" or "Explore covers, cases, and more to help you get the most from your iPad.". This trend is very clear throughout all their products. Microsoft seems to do the same, although in a less organized fashion and mixing both bit. If we take Solar City, almost every copy write has some customer focused language. For instance, they'll say something like "Our solar panels blend into your roof with integrated front skirts and no visible mounting hardware. The result is a clean, streamlined look."
Your Intro is 🎯✔💯%💘

I honestly believe nothing you did here helped any for her and with the tagline you may have just made things worse. What if someone has a good relationship but wants it to be stronger. Now you have offended your customers by assuming to much being too personal and judgmental and they have went away. Lastly an about page is supposed to tell you about the person or business so it creates a more personal connection with your customers. It's not all about what your offering that's for other pages such as Services but you need to be able to connect with people. Yet again I disagree with everything you've said here.

How about shift that spotlight over to the interaction, the communication between the supplier and the customer, build a new communication way for the both sides of the business, the supplier needs strategy, the customer needs strategy too.

This is so great! How would you apply this to writing a bio or, do you have a video already that talks about writing a great bio? I am actress and playwright. I am about to start submitting my play to big festivals and contests. All of them are asking for a BIO. For some reason this is really daunting. Thanks in advance

Nick Piche (1 year ago)
these are really great points and advice. but i have 2 comments to add to what you're saying. 1. yes, very important to turn the attention on the audience, but, as even in your examples, once the audience's problem is addressed, you then need to talk to how your service or product alleviates that problem. this is the way it should be, just thought you might want to say it more directly...shine the spotlight on their problem/desire, then answer it with your solution. 2. one of the copy/headline style you use as good examples here are actually something i try to avoid at all costs...you start with a yes/no question which means you immediately lose everyone that answers NO to the question. your second example there was great though.

How can we write great content which increases conversions? Every content writing video we see just goes on about keywords and is too SEO orientated. We already rank #1 on google.

Why would this dunce keep reading my text messages while texting, remove messages while im texting complete sentences? The iphone, smart phones were design for part of speech creations. Why would I make too many mistakes when submitting a message? Stop annoying me while writing and texting. Im not laughing, or joking. Its annoying! Starting a message, document and the wording is removed because, a person or organization enjoys the "texter" or writer get annoyed? YG2017

Just happened to watch this while taking a lunch break from working on my website. I love it when the Universe sends just the right resources at the perfect time! I think I will recast the phrase "Superb written content for all your business needs" on my landing page to "Superb written content to support and grow your business," putting the customer a little more in the spotlight. I can make some other tweaks as well. Thank you!

+Marie, your advice is suppa solid here as usual. The points you make are as lucid as the changes you suggested for her website navigation. The only "but" I've got for you, and it was true in the before as well as your after, was there seemed to be no consideration given to SEO or the consequences to SEO for the choices made on the menu. I'm not pitching that service - I'm a sci/tech journalist dealing with flight so no dog in the hunt. But sadly, Google is of two minds on this as I'm sure you of all people know. "Make the site great for people," they say, "not for our bots." Oh, but if you ignore SEO (their bots/algorithms) nobody will find you to be influenced by your outstanding on-page copy. :/ One last thought: Using "contact" for the link to a contact page (we use connect like the sample "before" actually) increases the likelihood in my experience of being targeted by bots that want to spam your contact form. Or e-mail address you post there (don't do that I'd suggest). Even with captcha, it is still a pain.
