    We are all so busy building our businesses, that we sometimes miss or fail to recognize our successes and the successes (big or small) of our fellow Preneurpal partners.

    I wanted to start a thread that acknowledges our accomplishments, that highlights things that are being done right!

    With that said, I received an email from Bruce Hoag today. It was extremely well written and thoughtful. I have never considered that a good copy writer should speak in the voice of the person who hired them. I thought a copy writer just wrote copy to convince someone to buy.

    I just wanted to thank you for you originality.

    Thanks for sharing this, Malik.

    What many people don’t realize is that we all have a “voice.” And that voice has to be consistent in everything you do.

    In my experience, good writing can sound very much the same, regardless of who writes it; but there will be subtle nuances. The use of certain words is a good example. Certain expressions or idioms may also surface.

    Years ago, I was asked to grade some papers for college (university) students. One of them obviously had two authors. All of a sudden, the style changed – right in the middle. I can’t imagine what the student was thinking. LOL

    That kind of thing can be a disaster in your marketing.

      Finding Your Voice

      Finding your online voice is so important. Then I first started writing, I wrote everything as if it were an undergrad assignment.

      It took me years to feel comfortable with writing in a more natural, conversational style. (Contractions!! Short sentences!! Oh, my!!)

      I try to imagine that I’m writing a letter to a good friend. It helps me get the right perspective for blog posts and emails.

      I had to learn how to write conversationally and not academically. That took quite a mindset shift. That’s because conversationally didn’t even sound correct. 😉
