Why Creative Writing for Marketing Matters Today

Posted by Erin Hinchman on Aug 24, 2022 8:00:00 AM

Like most naïve undergrads, I pictured myself becoming a famous comic or novel writer with my English degree. Yet, never once did I or a teacher consider creative writing for marketing! No, I needed to inspire others and claim “Hey, what I wrote matters!”  

Despite not being the next Stan Lee or Bronte, I do believe my work makes a difference for businesses needing creative content to rebuild profits in the post-pandemic world. So, whether you’re a CEO or hopeful writer like myself, consider creative writing for marketing to develop your career.

Writers, Please Don’t Forget the Art of Storytelling

Posted by Christian Wirtz on May 17, 2022 8:00:00 AM

Something that routinely distresses me as a copywriter and editor is the notion that people don’t read anymore. Since my first creative writing class in high school (a time further behind me than I sometimes realize), I’ve been aware of the challenge posed to writers in an era of instant gratification. It’s easier to consume a story in the form of watching a movie than reading a book. I'm not going to act like I never watch a movie or play a video game because the truth is I love both media as storytelling devices. In fact, it would be negligent to ignore their ability to tell stories. But when I look at the art of storytelling through the lens of a copywriter, I can’t help but think the ability, confidence, and poise needed to craft a great story are at risk of becoming a lost art.

Seriously, What are the Benefits of Content Marketing?

Posted by Christian Wirtz on Jan 27, 2022 8:00:00 AM

It is a universal truth that no one likes feeling marketed toward. Loud, in-your-face, disruptive marketing campaigns all trying so desperately to catch your attention. One anecdote I find coming into my mind as I write: one evening I was driving home from a deli when I found myself stuck behind a mobile electronic billboard for a blinding ten-odd-minute drive. Now, despite its limitations, billboard advertising definitely has its place in modern marketing campaigns, but this experience was somewhat indicative of everything wrong with past marketing efforts. Ironically, marketing practices of the past have forced marketers of the present and future to pivot to other, better practices. We call this content marketing. What are the real benefits of content marketing?
