Focused Results for Online Businesses
Karon Thackston (President) and her team have over 50 years of combined experience in marketing, advertising, website copywriting, ecommerce copywriting, Amazon & eBay listing writing and SEO copywriting. What sets us apart? We understand the processes involved with creating various types of advertising strategies which gives us an advantage in creating copy that produces results.
For example, we know the advertising copy has to work well with the photos and within the strict space constraints of an Amazon product page. Our team understands that SEO copy must consist of a delicate balance of keywords and phrases, target audience psychographics and facts. Otherwise, the message won't be easily accepted and the search engine rankings will be destroyed.
Taking the time to do the research and master the processes behind the scenes allows Marketing Words to offer you better quality services.
I have been in love with advertising since I was six years old. I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons and seeing the Frito Bandito on the screen (that ought to “date” me). I looked up at my mom and exclaimed, “I want to do THAT!”
It was fascinating to me that the way words were used, the way particular images were shown or where a logo was placed in an ad would decrease or improve its performance. The whole advertising process was exciting and I literally fell in love with it!
Since that time I have spent my business life in pursuit of advertising as a whole. I obtained my college degree in Marketing. Every job I have held in the corporate world – from newspapers to radio stations to ad agencies – has allowed me to learn more and more about the process of advertising copywriting.
Years ago, I began to study the Myers-Briggs outline of behaviors and eventually graduated from a DISC Behavioral Model course. Once again… the ways in which people respond to various words, actions, colors or attitudes had me in awe. As I began to incorporate those new bits of knowledge into my copywriting, I found it was working better and better.
