It’s the valuable content of a website, that’s why writing it is also called content writing. It can be an eBook, blog, video or anything your audience may want to have or go back for.

Thise exchange of information page is called the “opt-in page” where an audience puts his/her email in exchange for valuable copy. That’s the reason why we often hear the cliche, “Content is King” because it’s what people come for.

VA’s deal with this everyday, either for a client or for “their own” business. As a VA myself, I clearly understand the importance of having a good copy for the website’s pages.

That’s not all… We should also take the kind of content into consideration. The kind that business owners would want their clients to see when they visit the site. As much as possible, they want them to either opt-in, come back for more information, or be converted into a paying customer.
