“Words are the true currency of the web. The single most important ingredient in a commercial website is web copy. Words make the sale, and no amount of cool graphics, interactive bells and whistles, cutting-edge design, or sophisticated e-commerce infrastructure could ever compare to the selling ability of compelling web copy.”
