If You Can Talk About It, You Can Write It

if you can talk about it you can write it

I'm pretty sure that if I ask an SEO what the optimum content length is that does best in Google, they would have an answer for me.

They won't need 30 minutes of silence to carefully and artistically craft their answer.


Because they know what they're talking about.

If you can tell me what you want to say, you can write what you want to say.

If You Can't Talk About It, You Can't Write It

if you can't talk about it you can't write it

The only valid reason not to write (yet) is when you can't talk about a topic. And the single reason you won't allow yourself to talk about it is because you don't have enough information (yet).

But get this: doing (re)search for your article is not writing. Getting project support material isn't writing. Neither factors into your writing time.

But Isn't Writing A Creative Process?

Heck no! Not if you mean all creative and no process. If it was that simple the world would be way richer in great writers.

Writing is a craft. A craft is something you do. And by doing it all the time, you become skillful at it.

So, what did you write today?

In compliance with Ontario’s non-essential business closure our physical offices are closed until further notice. Fortunately our willingness to adopt work from home and the required technology over the past two years has allowed us to continue our operations without impact. For our valued clients and partners you can expect the same great level of service and execution you have become accustomed to.

Many clients/prospects have reached out to us in an effort to introduce new campaigns as quickly as possible. In an effort to help our clients pivot we have increased our campaign build capacity. We are now able to turn new campaigns over in 2-3 business days opposed to the typical 5-7 business day turnaround time. Please note that campaign launch approvals from the vendor side (Google, Bing, Facebook, Instagram etc.) may be delayed as those companies migrate to work from home.

For existing clients please reach out to your account manager with any questions you may have.

For non-clients looking for assistance with new campaigns please Contact Us
