What is direct response copywriting?

Direct response copywriting seeks to persuade users to take immediate action — buy, sign up, start a free trial, etc. It contrasts with other copy that may focus on establishing a brand tone or educating users about a product or topic.

What is SEO copywriting?

SEO copywriting aligns copy with how users search for information. SEO-focused copy prioritizes copy changes that may increase organic acquisition (e.g., including synonyms or keywords in headers) over brand-focused copy that may be less explicit in its description of page contents.
