Let’s check out these fresh and effective beauty + skincare copywriting trends and see what’s been working for big brands!
Emotions are Still the Protagonists
People love feeling. Whether it’s feeling excited, opinionated or just feeling heard, you need to keep in mind that your customers are people above all else. They like being listened to just like every other person and effective copywriting uses the emotions that move them. Emotions like desire, empathy, familiarity, security. If you create content that evokes these feelings from people then your’re on the right track.
Who wouldn’t want to read a message that sounds familiar and reminds them of their current situation? Who wouldn’t want to feel that the person who wrote that message understands them and knows what they’re going through? Who wouldn’t want to buy a product or a service that makes speaks to them personally and make them feel understood?
Keep adding these powerful emotions into the beauty + skincare copy you write. Remember that your products or services are something that your audience wants and needs!
More SEO Copywriting: The Perfect Mix Between Google and the Heart
SEO is no longer about writing as much content as possible and adding an abundance of keywords but adding keywords that users are searching on Google. If you are trying to upload a bunch of blogs and stuff keywords around in the hope that it will launch you to the top of Google, you’re wasting your time.
The goal of your content is to attract readers and get them to reach the end of the page so that they take action. If they leave before that you didn’t achieve your goal!
It’s better to write between 4-16 blogs a month and provide value to your readers, whether that’s through tips, news and updates, lifestyle + wellness pieces or how-to blogs.
More Stories, Please
Stories connect. If you want better results with your business copywriting, mix them up a little.
We assume a lot of things and why customers want products is one of them. We can think it was because compared to the competition your brand was the best possible choice or it could be the aesthetic of the packing that did the trick. Who knows?
Actually, we do.
Someone’s choice to purchase something is 90% emotional, not logical or based on facts. Did you know that the human brain doesn’t differentiate if it is reading or experiencing a story? Did you know that starting a sales pitch or a post with a story generates more engagement and concentration on the part of the reader than starting with another type of data or statistic?
People want to do business with brands similar to them — or brands that ‘get them.’ With people who they vibe with and get excited for, who share similar values and can be put in a little box in their head that says “Yup, that's totally me. I would've done the same thing”. People want to empathize and you can achieve it through telling a story.
