copyblogger collection - handpick the best words for your content

Taste the tomato.

The first week of the year can stir up a lot of energy, excitement — and anxiety.

The other day, while hurriedly shoving forkfuls of a salad into my mouth (I needed to get back to work), my taste buds suddenly lit up due to a bite-size piece of tomato. It was fresh and delicious.

I decided to slow down and enjoy my food. Eating was the only task I needed to focus on at that moment.

When you approach your content marketing duties, your only job is to focus on executing your current task as best as you can.

Sometimes that task is choosing the right words.

Aaron Orendorff says:

Optimizing your own copy is a bit like scaling Mount Everest without a Sherpa. It doesn’t matter if you’re in shape; if you go it alone, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll end up a crumpled human popsicle.

To avoid that scenario, Aaron’s here to help with The Ultimate Copy Checklist: 51 Questions to Optimize Every Element of Your Online Copy.

You can download our free PDF that breaks down Aaron’s guidance into 10 categories:

  1. Headline
  2. Subheadline
  3. Value proposition
  4. Introduction
  5. Subheads
  6. Conclusion
  7. Call to action
  8. Voice
  9. Arguments
  10. Weapons of persuasion

Concentrate on your current activity

Some call it “being present.” Some call it “mindfulness.” I call it “tasting the tomato.”

Use this post (and save it for future reference) to help you make smart choices and focus on producing your best work each time you create content.
