And I simply fell into head-over-heels, lady-and-the-tramp, romeo-and-juliet kinda love with linguistics, language, and how the particular choices of words can trigger different emotions in our readers.
Annnnnnd it’s usually around here that I name drop a few big agency names that I’ve worked with for years to build that credibility brownie point with you.
Alas... I’ma burst your digi-bubble and all the web copy “rules” by telling you that – nope, I don’t have 10 years of marketing experience. And na da, I ain’t an ex-journo either.
The truth? I used to actually write things people NEVER read... as a lawyer. (HA!)
Wordfetti? Began as a side-gig in 2017 while I juggled my corporate job.🧑🏻💼
Born out of my desire to spread the power of words and create more ZING (read: impact) in this heckin' incredible world we live in, I DIY’d my website with $250 and began to test an idea where I’d build a brand without knowing anyone in the industry from the ground up, simply through the power medium of words.
I got clear on my positioning and message, and launched 🚀 our website within weeks.
For 7 months it was crickets. But after a few digital tumbleweeds… I got my first lead. And then another. And another.
Through consistency in my messaging, words and content, I became fully booked for 3 months in advance within 12 months, quit my corporate job to Wordfetti full time and have since? Not only doubled, almost tripled our growth each year, but have helped our clients achieve the same through my methodology.📈🎊
*logophile (noun.) a lover of words.
That words have the power to build brands from the ground up
That words, when executed with precision can help you stand out in your industry
And that I was officially a heckin’ self-confessed logophile*
Words are pretty darn magical.
Not only do they have the power to ignite ideas, paint stories in our minds and inspire meaningful action, but this universal unicorn 🦄 tool that each and every single one of us has the power to build connections with our audience, trigger different emotions, and make your reader feel something.
All without you even being physically in front of them.
What did I tell ya?
I mean, take the below as an example:
(The latter sounds more compelling right?)
I’d love to work with you
I’d like to work with you
(the latter sounds bigger, right?)
(The latter makes you want to cringe, right?)
The scratching screeching sound of her fingernails as she runs it on the chalkboard
Her sharp fingernails

However, whether it be through speaking, us creating your brand DNA or our copywriting programs at Wordfetti, me as your strategist or as your mentor, I fuse my proprietary 7-step framework that blends:
Your Fetti’ 🎉 Cheerleader,
So here’s to you.
The one who don’t want to settle for mediocre.

And here’s to using words to catapult your business, and change lives, for the better.
