“OMG, this chick gets me.”
“I’ve gotta work with her.”
“I’d seriously sell my new (and gorgeous) Kate Spade crossbody to get the cash to buy that class/product/service.”
That’s the kinda stuff you want your dream client to think when she reads your website.
Okay girlfriend, level with me.
Is this you?
♥ Are you tired of re-writing the same sentence on your services page because you’re debating for hours whether to call your product “amazing” or “wonderful” (and probably giving yourself carpal tunnel in the process?)
♥ Do you freeze up as soon as you plop your cute butt down to write anything for your business (blog posts, sales copy, tweets – you name it!) because everybody else in your niche sounds so damn cool and you’re scared you’ll never compare?
♥ Do you haaate that your copy has none of your flay-vah in it – because you don’t know how to sound both professional AND compelling?
♥ Do you want your copy to sound fun and sexy, but instead end up with writing that’s robotic, corporate-y or painfully dry (like the half-empty glass of pinot next to your keyboard)?
♥ Do you spend hours + hours doing everything but writing for your business (like, y’know, perusing Nordstorm.com just in case those hot 7 jeans just went on sale since the last time you checked…5 minutes ago)?
♥ Do you (secretly) die a small, embarrassing death inside, every time you send out a link to your website?

“Erica swung in when I needed her most, new services launch time. In short order she created bangin’ sales pages that spoke to my people and were infused with ME. It was amazing to see my work spring to life on the page. She saved me weeks of agonizing over word choices & sales page structure. Now, they’re done for me and landing me clients. So much win.”Ellen Ercolini
“Erica is a pint-sized tornado of wordy goodness. After hiring her for a ‘Namestorm’ project she delivered exactly what I was after and immediately cut through the swamp of boring nonsensical ‘blah’ that I was creating on my own and got to the heart of my project in a few spiffy lines. I’m chuffed to bits.She’s super quick to get the work done and she really ‘sees’ what you and your project are about. I’ll certainly be back for more.”Amy Humphries
“I had so much to do that making the time to sit down and write a draft was not happening. I hadn’t heard of Erica before, but her first email SOLD ME! She is definitely one of the best copywriters I’ve ever worked with! I would absolutely recommend Erica to anyone looking for a copywriter.”Kendrick Shope
“…Erica just took the ideas I had and (all super speedy like) whipped them into a sales page that made me want to buy what I was offering! The icing on the cake is she’s lovely! I really enjoyed my time chatting with her before she started writing and felt like she was genuinely interested and cared about my project. I’ve recommended her to several of my clients and I can’t stop hearing about how awesome she is!”Allison Braun
the #itgirl VIP experience is just perfect for biz babes who:
♥ Are mid-or-post-rebrand and seeking some fierce, fresh syntax to express what they’re really all about (now)
♥ Want to have a little “fun” with their copy – and would rather die than sound like everybody else 😉
But it’s definitely NOT for:
♥ Ladies totally terrified of injecting personality into their brand
♥ Biz owners who aren’t ready to make definitive decisions about the direction of their brand and business
How does it all work?
Well, here’s a peek into the process:
:: We plot + plan. Thanks to your fun-filled pre-project questionnaire (Brand Beat Sheet) + our VIP Copy Clarity Call, we’ll have tons of 411 on your target market, copywriting objectives + what makes you, you. (We also expect you to do your due diligence by handing over all your market research beforehand, but don’t worry – this is all explained in your Beat Sheet.)
:: We research + spend lotsa days immersed in all things your biz. We get knee-deep in research to get to know you, your business + your industry, in a totally non-creepy + strategic way. (Though it should be noted, Erica wasn’t a professional celebrity Twitter stalker for almost two years for nothin’!)
:: We drink lots of Starbucks soy frappucinnos. Studies say caffeine actually can make you more creative, so just let us do our own thing, okay? 😉
My team and I truly do everything we can to slip into your shoes (pumps, flats or boots – whatev!) and write like YOU. Except the most sleek, polished version of you. Our goal for each + every xo couture communications client is that nobody knows you hired a copywriter – they just think you sound awesome.
How long will it take for me to get my final copy? I need a website – stat!
Although we’ll start banging out your web words immediately after your Copy Clarity Call, it usually takes about 3 weeks to go from call to final copy (including one round of revisions). You can’t rush greatness, my love. 😉
BTW, you’ll receive all your final copy in both Google Docs + Word Doc, formatted + ready to pop on your site + go.
What makes the #itgirl VIP experience different?
You’re getting more than just copywriting. You’re getting incredible clarity on your brand and messaging which will prove wonderfully helpful down the line as you create more content for your biz.
Many clients have told us our Brand Beat Sheet is worth the investment alone.
I run a brick and mortar biz/ I offer products, not services. Is this for me?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! We love working with fun, trendy, boutique product-based businesses. Chocolatiers, jewelry-makers, you name it – we can help.
The same business, branding and messaging principles apply no matter if you sell online or in the flesh.
What if I need more pages?
No problem! We offer reduced add-on rates for each additional page of copy (except for long-form sales pages, which are another beast). Just ask!
Our “Love It” Guarantee
At xo couture communications, we pinky swear to do whatever we can during our time together to ensure you’re head-over-kitten-heels in love with your new web words. (And this should be pretty darn easy, since you’ll be there making decisions every step of the way.)
Don’t love it? Then we’re not done.
