Many sites are launched with fantastic functionality, engaging design and brilliant film footage but what about the copy.

Copy is so important for not only Search Engine Optimisation reasons but also for the very purpose of the site: engaging your audience. So it’s worth reviewing all the copy on your site on a regular basis post launch.
