We all KNOW we’re supposed to speak directly to our ideal clients on our websites but sometimes figuring out HOW to do that is difficult.

Do you ever wish the words on your website could actually sound like you and speak to them?

(“Them” = those dream clients everyone’s talkin’ about)!!!

Instead, it seems like you’re FULL of passion and heart around what you do, but as soon as you go to type out some words to describe it and move people to take action. . .

. . . All of a sudden: You only speak robot.

Words are HARD. I get it.

And writing copy for your website from scratch? That’s REALLY hard!!

Plus, none of us signed up for this “become a writer” thing, on top of becoming a business owner, a photographer, a marketer and accounting specialist.

We wear all of the hats and it is HARD work.

Last December I saw my bookings conversion drop a little lower as I bumped my prices & found myself in the luxury market.

My portfolio work was there but my website copy?

Well, it was a bit generic & boring and honestly could get lost in a sea of websites — I wanted clients to book my services for ME, no matter the cost!

I decided my copy needed a makeover. 

So I turned to the Promptlates by Jess Jordana!

Using her Website Bundle I upgraded JUST the words on my website (nothing else – I didn’t touch the design or images). . .

. . .And I started converting at over 90%.

Meaning 90% of the inquiries that came through my door BOOKED.

I was not only getting more inquiries in 1 month than I had in an entire quarter the previous year but I was also successfully BOOKING way more!!

The thing is, if our website can’t get our dream customers through our doors (aka the contact form!) how the heck are we supposed to book & serve them?

Them reaching out & already being ready to book with YOU because of what they’ve seen AND heard on your website makes the entire inquiry process & connecting with your clients a piece of cake. 

You guys, it is TIME.

It’s time we ditch those cookie-cutter website words that aren’t even doing their job.

Enter: The Promptlate Shop

This amazing set of resources was put together by my copywriter friend, Jess Jordana. (iced coffee clink!)

In case you’re like… “what the h – e – double hockey sticks is a Promptlate?”

It’s basically 50% Prompts, 50% Templates, 100% the only DIY website copy resource of it’s kind.

The Promptlates are your one-stop-shop for a DIY copy experience that’ll have people saying, “Who’s your copywriter?”

(Oh, and without the pro-copywriter price tag, either.)

PLUS, these are no writing genius required. It’s almost like you’re being tricked into writing personality-infused, value-focused words that actually move people to action.

You can use my code to snag 30% off!!
