In copywriting, the word ‘we’ is a really, really bad word. But why is ‘we’ a really, really bad word? It’s because it’s used when we talk about ourselves, about our business. But guess what! Your customers and prospects don’t want to hear about you, they want to hear about them. They want to know that you understand their problems, their needs and they want you to show them how rosy their future will be once they’ve bought your product or used your service.
So here’s what you do. Go through all your emails, your website, your leaflets and cut out the word “we”. Change the sentence so it focuses on your customer or prospect by using the word “you”. Do this on all you copywriting, even on your About Us page on your website. Tip: Show them how you can solve their problems don’t talk about your XX years’ experience or your awards.
