Much like how a website was essential during the 90s and 2000’s; online video is on the rise to become one of the definitive elements of an online presence.

Finally, copywriting is a skill many believe they understand but rarely get it right. Business owners that write their own copy miss the point all too frequently; they write as if they were talking to other business owners.

You could also use your copywriting skills to create brochures, packaging materials, sales scripts and much more – a small business owners dream!
