When it comes to potential customers engaging with a brand for the first time, first impressions are everything. If they aren’t immediately impressed with the content on a website they’re checking out or a social media post they’ve just seen on their feed, they’re most likely to keep it moving. It becomes difficult to woo them back after that point. I can’t recall how many times I’ve left a website quicker than I loaded it due to poor quality copy. Yes, it’s rather off-putting. If your copy is of poor quality, you’re at risk of losing potential customers.
