Lynn assists clients with their web copy or writes the copy based on the information provided. Web copy is unique because readers tend to skim, and the points must be clear.

Once the copy is written, she uses headings (H1, H2, H3) and bullet points where necessary to enhance the SEO and readability. She determines a focus keyword or phrase for the page, and incorporates it the ideal number of times and locations to increase SEO success.
