Top Tip #1: write unique product descriptions

okay, this is a mistake that we see so many companies make, whether they are based in Bristol, where another city, it make the mistake of thinking that they are retailing a product which is made by a manufacturer which supplies many businesses, so they therefore make a huge mistake of copying and pasting the product description from another source, namely the manufacturer.

Do not do this, do not want duplicated content marketing, whether it be just one paragraph of text or hundreds of words, do not use duplicated work.

Instead need to spend time writing a unique product description, and all of the text should be unique to your website, yes this is a huge amount of work, yes it’s going for a large quantity of coffee, and yes after it you are likely to have exhausted your copywriters, but it needs to be done, that’s if you want to improve your organic SCO, it should never be duplicated as your website might be deemed as low quality website or even worse a span.

Now, why would they do this?

The simple answer is it could help you to draw in more organic visitors, these visitors might then go to your page and contact your solicitors for advice, which is therefore helping to generate business, if it is done right, notice how we use the wording if it is done correctly, so many marketing agencies have got the time to do this work correctly, cut corners, and then they guarantee SCO, however if you are investing in this form of marketing it needs to be top quality.
