    My services break down to two basic types of copywriting services : print and web. I specialize in both website content writing/SEO copywriting servises and consulting for websites as well as sales copywriting–producing sales letters, print ads, and such.

    That's great, but it wasn't what he asked about. If your response to a client's brief is as appropriate as your response to this thread, you'd going to get eaten alive. Just a friendly warning.

    There are no "trends" or "styles" to speak of.Only true and tried methods that produce results and revenue.Gimmicks come and go and are risky at best.
    All of our writers are experienced pros...they have learnt what works and what doesn't..............."If it ain't broke,don't fix it".

    Thanks for this. I get your point. Copy writing is not really about trends and styles. Its about how you write and say it based on your target market.

    One trend that I see is that long copy seems to be swinging back to shorter copy with bullet-point style, complimented with video 'copy'

    You're right. In this multimedia driven world, people would more appreciate if our copy has visuals.

    It varies, greatly.
    In North America, there is a growing trend among the writing community to wear a purple bonnet while writing - unless if you are over six feet in height, in which case, it will be a beige-colored one.
    In Western Europe, knee-length leather writing boots are making a comeback in avant-garde copy writing circles, much to the displeasure of animal-rights activists and Brigitte Bardot.
    Meanwhile, in India, doctoral candidates moonlighting as sweat shop rewriters are demanding byline credit for their work now.

    For the rest of us, writing remains pretty much the same since keyboards replaced pens, while copywriters continue to have their work truncated and defiled by an explosive combination of sights, sounds and scantily-clad ingénues.

    In my opinion the OP asked a legitimate intelligent question,your answer was neither.If you were going for satire or wit,you failed.

    In my opinion, you are a troll, and considering your posts on my thread were deleted, then I assume the mods agrees as well.

    Nope,basically it's standard procedure when a post is reported.You reported me because you didn't agree with what I said.But I do agree with the mods moving your thread to Content Creation as clearly it didn't belong here.

    Children...Ugh...Stop hijacking. It's growing more true every day that the key to content is completely unique. Not 30% unique, not copyscape passed, 100% from your brain. You will make short term money with ripped material that have had a few words changed, but the search engines are hitting harder and harder and spammers/stealers are seeing their sites drop 100+ spots in a single day. The day of easy blogging is thankfully coming to an end!

    Actually, I reported you because you were trolling and disrupting the thread.
    Fyi, it's not standard procedure to delete posts whenever anyone reported it - ask the mods - just like what you are doing in this thread.
    Now for heavens sake, please stop following me, troll.

    GoldSEO, You are absolutely correct! It is our responsibility to create or develop genuine, and grammatically correct content. Why waste time using plagiarism checker for each & every content? Just do what I did when developing my website. Rely on professional content development services!

    Thanks & Regards,

    Perhaps we’ll need to design most “web copy” to be read aloud (i.e. in video). Perhaps text will get shorter and typefaces bigger, to accommodate reading on the TV. There’s already evidence that both these things are happening. One thing’s for sure: web copy conventions are changing in 2012.
