Copywriting tips: How to write copy with integrity and authenticity

Can we write copy with integrity and authenticity?

Words can hurt and words can heal.
And because words matter so much, folk stories have taught us exactly that.

Remember the story of Rumpelstiltskin?

Once upon a time, a greedy king asked a peasant girl to spin a bunch of straw into gold or he would kill her. In her desperation, she accepted the help of a weird-looking, little man who would do the magic for her, as long as he could keep her first-born baby.

Brand Archetypes: How I re-align my business with my values

How I re-align my business with my values

2020 is finally gone. 
Au revoir. Auf Wierdersehen. Adiós.

I’m well aware that 2021 can be to 2020 what Rogue One was to the Star Wars Saga: one of the most expensive films ever made, and profoundly disappointing nevertheless.

But what if it were more like baby Yoda in The Mandalorians? So cuddly that I can’t stop smiling every time I see him?

Most probably, 2021 will bring a bit of both.

So the question is, what can we do to make the most out of it?

The Great Conjunction and how to promote your business online

The Great Conjunction and promoting online business

Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave, you’ve probably heard about the great conjunction and the few other astronomical events that are currently taking place. 

First the solstice, the darkest time of the year in the northern hemisphere. 

And second the Jupiter – Saturn conjunction in which both planets, from the Earth’s perspective, seem to be a single star, the brightest of the winter night sky 

“-But what does all this have to do with me and my business?” – you may ask.

On using stories to get people’s attention (ethically)

On using stories to get people’s attention

There is a lot of buzz about using stories in marketing.
Find your story, share your story and Voila! …

…people will pay attention to you.

But is that true?

What I know to be true is that we all love a good story.
And it’s also true that people won’t care about you -or your story- until they know you care about them.

Don’t you agree with this?
Let me prove it to you:

What type of Conscious Leader are you?

Recently, Gema Ramirez from the Conscious Academy interviewed me for her Connecting with Heart-Centered Leaders series. 

The topic?

How to understand who your ideal clients are (with the help of archetypes)

How to understand who your ideal clients are

The purpose of your business is to help people solve a certain problem. 
We agree on that, right?

The next thing you need to be crystal clear about is who you want to help. 

And you want to find it out as soon as possible, because…

  • How will you know where they gather?
  • How will you know what topics to write about that are of interest to them?
  • How will you know where to share your content?

Without knowing who you serve, trying to connect with them is all guesswork!

What makes you (and your work) unique?

What makes you (and your work) and unique?

For a long time, as much as I disliked the word “competition” and had tried to shift my mindset about it, I couldn’t shake the tightness in the pit of my stomach at the thought of it.

I had just launched my website in English, and I felt like a tiny particle of dust in a vast universe.

Why would anyone choose to work with me? -I wondered. 

I knew it was Continue reading

Brand Alignment Q&A: Are my clients exactly like me?

 

After attending one of my Stand Out by Being You workshops, a participant sent me this comment:
“I believe I do my best work with clients who are not at all like me. But when you talked about archetypes in your course, I understood you said that our best clients are those who are like us.”

This article is my answer to the question: Are my clients exactly like me? Continue reading

5 Things that make you stand out and be different

The only way to stand out in today’s world is to be different from all other professionals out there who do what you do.

The market is so crowded that your ideal clients won’t even notice you unless you position yourself under a different light.
