When opportunity knocks, Takooba copywriting makes sure you are home.

Take it from Takooba, one of the UK's best marketing-focused technical copywriters - specialising in construction copywriting, architectural and building project write-ups.


If you want to maximise sales, your websites, brochures and other marketing collateral need to speak to your customers.


Words on a page need to be even more direct, efficient and friendly than words exchanged over coffee. 


Yet, whether through habit, due to death-by-committee or as a result of an unclear brief, writing to sell often loses people's interest, rather than engaging it.


Over 15 years in the writing game, Takooba has helped make clients make sure their marketing comms:


  • clearly state what makes them different
  • are alive!
  • show the firm understands what makes their customers tick
  • is SEO-optimised
  • is trustworthy
  • is jargon-free
  • is efficient
  • has one, clear voice

Give their hand a squeeze!


The good news is that customers are dying to read all about you - they want to get to the bottom of your passion, knowledge and commitment to quality. I'm saying business writing is not a challenge - it's an opportunity!


They are looking to buy.


Companies seeking answers to questions only you can provide. Can these guys solve my problem? Will they help make me money? Do they know what they are talking about? Can I trust them? 


When I say it like this, it sounds simple, right? Not so.


While clear writing is vital in marketing, it's harder than most people realise (or admit).


Find out how Takooba's 15 years of writing and marketing experience will help you show up for your customers. 


So when visitors arrive, you'll be there, inviting them in, putting them at ease, and doing business.
