Can you tweak my existing web copy?

You might sometimes feel your copy is not far off, but not quite right. I get it. Writing decent business copy is harder than it looks. 

That’s when businesses ask me if I’ll tweak their existing copy. Sometimes they see it as a cheaper option. Or a faster one. 

Truth is, it’s not something many copywriters like to do. Rather like building a house, starting with a clear plot is always easier (and better) than adapting something already built. 


If your copy’s going to work hard for your business, it must be:

  • Customer-focused
  • Easy flowing
  • Consistently structured
  • Written in the same tone
  • Easy and engaging to read

When you do a hack and glue job to existing copy, it’s hard to meet all these needs. It doesn’t work like a jigsaw puzzle. And it’s certainly not a cheaper, or faster, task.

You wouldn’t give your designer a completed design and ask them to suggest how they’d improve it. So, I urge you to let your copywriter take the lead and do a great (and effective) job for you.

Short answer: I can’t just ‘tweak your existing copy’ for you, but I do offer some services that might help.

If you’re not convinced you’re conveying the right message or tone in your web copy, I can give you some guidance. Maybe it’s just not delivering the enquires? Let’s take a look. 

Having written for countless websites and liaised with many SEO specialists and web builders, I know a thing or to that might help you step-change your web copy and see it work harder for you.
