Radix Copycast episode 11-01

B2B marketers are using more content types than ever before, but it’s rare to find one copywriter who is equipped with the full range of copy capabilities. In fact, it’s a must to find the right writer for the right job and you may be surprised by the diversity of skills needed to produce a range of types of content.

Fiona and I are joined by Lindsay Clark – associate writer and experienced business and technology journalist (Computer Weekly, Supply Management, Times, Guardian, FT) – to discuss the different types of writer available, and why journalists in particular make good marketing content creators. Topics we cover include:

  • How to evaluate a potential writer
  • What other skills a good marketing copywriter should have
  • Striking the right balance between in-house and outsourced writers
  • How journalists can help with content marketing initiatives
  • What sort of content projects journalists are best equipped to work on
