Since the recession of 2009-2012, I have loved words.
When I got phone call after phone call back in January 2009 cancelling marketing contrats, I was left wondering what I’ll do.
A friend said she’d always loved my writing, my easy style of communicating. A fellow member of the Drogheda Chamber used to call me the Carrie Bradshaw of Marketing. 🙂
So I re-invented myself or to use the pandemic word of pivoting, I became a copywriter. A relationship or marketing copywriter, even though we didn’t use those words back then. My first book – 31 Days to Write Better Copy was written in 2010, published in 2011. I have a love affair with words since then, I have loved studying the art and science of words..
Even with ChatGPT and AI bursting into our lives over the past six months or so, I still believe in the power of words. They really are the hidden gem of marketing.
When it came to formulating or defining my proven process to Marketing – The FAY WAY – words had to be a stage on their own. So many people overlook them. And of course with AI, I think it will be easier to write. In fact, one of my chapters in 31 Days to Write Better Copy, is avoiding the blank screen. That’s gone now – ChatGPT and the other tools allow us to start.
Continuing with the FAY WAY to Marketing podcast series, I’ve recorded an episode talking about the importance of words. I’ve recorded lots with practical information and I’ll list them at the bottom, but this one, I wanted to either introduce you or re-introduce you to why words are so important.
