Getting It Write: Common Sense Copywriting for your Business

ABOUT Marilyn Messik

Marilyn Messik



Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a book on Writing for your Business could guide you, gently but firmly down the path to security, success and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Unfortunately, life’s no fairy-tale, so I wouldn’t lay bets on the pot!

Fact is, there’s never an approach to anything that suits everyone and writing’s no exception. What works splendidly for someone else, might not tick your boxes. Which is why, in this book, you’ll find no absolute rights, wrongs or rules, just plenty of options, opinions and suggestions including such weighty matters as:

~ Not Murdering your Message
~ Marketing Hits and Myths
~ Creating Killer Copy Lines
~ Public Speaking or Root Canal Treatment?

I certainly hope some of what I’ve put together will nudge you to approach things from new angles, encourage you to trust your own instincts, help avoid unpleasant pitfalls and give you some ideas on how to make words work harder for you.
