Freelance Web Content Writing

Freelance web content writing is what sells.  It's what everybody wants and nobody can get enough of.

Freelance web content writing: what is it?

Web content is everything you're reading on the Internet.  This blog is web content.  The article you just read about platypus mating habits is web content.  The page on your bank's website about giving you a loan contains web content.

  • Put the most pertinent information at the top of your page; you'll pique readers' interest and keep them on your page
  • Fill in details you need your readers to know throughout the body of your document
  • Conclude with a call-to-action
