Creative Swipe Phrases for Copy Writing to Use Today!

Ah swipe phrases, our saving grace

Every time you go to write your copy you may not have that whole ‘got 8 hours of sleep, just drank a pot of coffee, let’s get this done’ sort of attitude. After all, you just wrote an amazing, awe-inspiring article – and now you have to figure out what’s going to make people click over to it? Sounds like a job to save for tomorrow.

But never fear! Swipe phrases for copy writing are here!

Swipe phrases are essentially a collection of great marketing tactics you’ve seen others use in the past. Many writers and marketers keep a list stored away for days when they are lacking inspiration, are struggling to properly get their point across, or can’t quite connect with their clients/readers/users. The trick is to take what others have done and spin it for your own industry. Your take on it will look different depending on your campaign, article, or client base and may take a minute or two to think up, but at least you’re halfway there!
