OnlineBound Podcast #2

Gill Andrews: How to describe your product or service on your website

March 24, 2021

In this episode of OnlineBound, I talk to Gill Andrews, a conversion copywriter and web consultant. She takes us behind the scenes of her business and explains what exactly copywriters do and how they can help small business owners like you and me. 

Gill is has been very generous with sharing her expertise and you can expect to learn a few things people pay serious money to learn in copywriting courses, like the exact way to structure your product page so that it helps you sell your online course or program (it’s surprisingly easy!).

Besides, you’ll learn about some smart business strategies, like creating a “productized service” or writing a book the smart way.

It’s better to do and regret than not to do and regret. Be less chicken and allow yourself to make more mistakes.
