Blog Post

1,453 Projects Completed

Most of what Todd has written over the years have been blog posts, including both short-form and long-form content. While many of his posts are over 1,000 words, he is very comfortable writing long-form content containing 3,000+ words. In fact, Todd prefers long-form content over short-form because it enables a subject to be explored in greater detail.

Several additional benefits that Todd has realized over the years of writing long-form content is that:
- Readers are generally more likely to link to and refer long-form content
- It ranks for more keywords and key-phrases
- It tends to rank higher than short-form content
- It tends to give you more "bang-for-your-buck" in terms of traffic and SEO.

While most of Todd's work has consisted of blog posts, he has also written:

- Website copy
- Sales copy or copywriting
- Articles
- Whitepapers, and
- Ebooks

Web Page

62 Projects Completed

In addition to being a writer and digital marketer, Todd has been creating websites professionally for over 15 years now. As a result, not only has he created a great deal of copy for his clients, he understands firsthand, how technology and content interact for optimal results.

At first, Todd's content focused on providing information about the client's business, products, or services. As his writing skills improved, he broadened his scope to focus on including content intended to drive the reader to action. What type of action depended upon the client's goals for the reader.

The design, layout, and content can be utilized in different ways on a single page to drive a user to action, depending upon where they were on a page. For example, the body of the page educates the reader about the client's product or service while the header contains a call to action to subscribe to a newsletter. Meanwhile, the bottom of the same page contains a call to action to book an appointment or make a purchase.

If not done carefully, a page can end up cluttered, confusing the reader. However, if done correctly, the result is a page that addresses the user's question before they know what to ask and creates a desire for whatever is being sold.

Most often, the process of converting a prospect to a client takes place over several pages and only happens with extensive testing. The end result is an effective sales funnel.
