How we do it
Mind the content gap
Site copy can sometimes be an afterthought, but not with us. We recognise it plays an absolutely pivotal role in selling your products and services – and your business. Well-written, engaging content makes a huge difference to conversion rates and organic visibility. If your copy’s not up to scratch, your bottom line will show it.
Our in-depth page audits will also highlight any content shortcomings. Then we’ll remedy the quality gap with the help of our experienced copywriters, who’ve written about every topic imaginable. We’ll target your key pages first, to maximise the immediate impact our content writing services have.
Google are just as keen on excellent content as consumers. It’s one of the four pillars of SEO: alongside technical SEO, optimisation and links, it elevates websites’ search rankings. It also makes crucial contributions to on-page optimisation and any link building efforts, which both rely upon carefully chosen wording.
Written for people, optimised for Google
As any content strategy agency will tell you, copy should always be written specifically for the audience, rather than a search engine. As it happens, this is also what Google want: authentic, interesting copy that answers users’ queries and gives users confidence in Google’s results. This is just one of many good reasons why content has to be thoroughly planned: it needs to answer questions people are actually asking.
Experience has taught us that format also has a big impact on search ranking, particularly if you’re aiming for a coveted featured snippet. Short paragraphs, tables and regular subheadings are simple ways to make your site accessible and easy to read: for people and Google.
Copy should also help people navigate through a site and improve the user experience generally, signposting them towards the conversion you want. And once people are at that crucial conversion stage, our compelling copy can be the difference.
Showing your credentials
To rank for competitive queries, it’s not enough to just have a singular page dedicated to one keyword or query. Google have said they look for sites to show expertise, authority and trust (EAT) when evaluating their quality.
To break that down, you need to demonstrate you’re experts at all things related to your offering, an authority on the topic and can be trusted to provide reliable information. Here’s the good news: producing content allows you to tick all those boxes.
We enhance rankings for your service/product/category/landing pages by creating high-quality, well-optimised pages, surrounded by related blog content that supports the target page with internal links. We call it content clustering and it works time and again.

Our content writing services
A combination of data-driven SEOs and creative content specialists means we offer some of the best SEO copywriting around. Here’s what our talented people can do.
We treat site copy with the respect it deserves, placing it on a par with technical SEO and off-page work. Our dedicated team of experienced copywriters apply best practice, skill and great focus to create web copy that’s as appealing as it is well-optimised.
Our SEO content writing services include regularly identifying places where you could rank higher up for a keyword or query. For example, there could be potential for you to break into the top 10 ranking positions on Google by introducing more informational, longer-form content on a particular topic. Or it might be that Google seems to prefer product-listing pages with minimal copy and you can rank higher by taking that approach. If we spot an opportunity like this, we’ll soon have our copywriters drafting content to capitalise on it.
Search-led blog content
Even if a site has paid great attention to the technical SEO pillar and boasts robust technical foundations, it can still struggle for visibility. This can be due to optimisation that’s too generic or substandard, but a lack of ‘search-led’ blog content is often the cause.
We pinpoint the questions audiences are searching for, provide answers in a Google-friendly way and sprinkle some keywords around the edges. And it works wonderfully, improving rankings as you add value for audiences.
Linkable and creative content
Crafted by our resourceful digital PR team in conjunction with our copywriters, we often produce on-site content with one primary aim: to be link-worthy. The key is finding an interesting topic and providing informational resources and assets focusing on it, whether it’s a survey, a collection of data or an infographic. We’ll package it just right, outreach it to publications we know will be interested and links will surely come your way.
If you’ve got unique, authoritative data that you own in there, that’s all the better for securing those big, industry-relevant links. Of course, we’ll also expertly optimise it to rank well, so this evergreen content will provide link potential for years to come.
It’s difficult to overestimate the importance of a well-written, attention-grabbing press release. They’re absolutely central to the success of any digital PR campaign. Even if you have a truly fascinating angle and data not found anywhere else, you must be able to tell and sell the story to journalists short on time.
Our copywriters and digital PR specialists put all their considerable expertise into getting press releases perfect, tempting publications into carrying stories. As well as links back to your site, you’ll also benefit from the great levels of exposure that come from nationwide and industry-leading titles.
Although we’re SEO experts, we realise those three letters don’t mean everything. We often produce content for pages that aren’t set up to attract Google’s attention. Whether it’s a company history, a ‘Meet the team’ page or gated content (like an ebook) that people exchange their email address for, every part of your website is a chance to impress potential customers. We can make pages like this work for you, getting your message across in a more compelling way.
And if you produce email newsletters, social media posts and other types of non-SEO-based content, we’re here for that as well. Open rates, click-through rates, engagement rates…we’ll have all kinds of rates heading upwards if you come to us.
Tone of voice and brand guidelines
Capturing the right tone of voice for your business is no easy task. It has to convey your values and complement your wider brand personality, while appealing to your customer base and the audiences you want to attract. It’s a real balancing act.
We can help you establish how you want your company to sound, recording it in tangible guidelines for copywriters, marketers and anyone else who writes on behalf of your business. Providing clear directions like these will give your communications consistency and raise the level of quality.
It’s not just about traditional copywriting for the web – far from it. We deliver much more…
Our content creation services also include everything from infographics to video animations, from customised graphs and tables to e-books. We can help you and your marketing efforts look the part as well, producing highly shareable visual content that can get your business real exposure.
