When our team first meets with your team, we’re going to ask you a series of questions to ensure that the content we generate for you meets your specific requirements. We surprise many of our clients with the types of questions we ask about language and long-term plans for their brand. To avoid any surprises, here’s a sampling of the types of questions we ask.
What competitor websites do you like?
We don’t copy from the websites of your competitors. However, we need to know A) who you see as your competition and B) what you like. The list of competitors you send us operates in the same space. We need to know what information potential customers expect to see, as well as how we can position your company differently than the competition.
Also, the list of websites you like reveals a lot about what kind of content you like. We aim to make you happy. If every single website you love writes blog posts written in a similar style about similar topics, odds are good that you like this style, too.
What’s the tone?
Do you want your brand to come across as friendly and relatable? Or professional and corporate? These decisions matter when it comes to how your customers see you.
What’s the POV?
Do you want your company to be written about in second (us) or third (the company) person? Do you want to talk to your customers in second (you) or third (customers) person? Depending on your brand’s formality, this will change. Some businesses, such as consultants, may even want to write in first person (I).
