Tone: Friendly, simple, scientific
Top keywords: Free guided meditation, 20 minutes guided meditation.
Main objective: This page aims to get new meditators to download a free guided meditation in return for their email address.
This is an SEO optimised sales/product page for a sports nasal dilator. The product helps the wearer to maintain nasal breathing during exercise.
As part of this project I also prepared the packaging copy, including the product tagline.
To include a number of relevant keywords.
To convey the benefits of nasal breathing to the sports-focused audience.
And to communicate why this product is superior to other similar dilators on the market.
A sales page for a breathing instructor training course. The training is aimed at yoga teachers and experienced yogis. It covers aspects of scientific breathwork and their application in yoga practice and teaching.
This is a high-ticket offer, so the challenge was to present the information in a way that was attractive for both yoga and breathing enthusiasts. And to convey the quality and relevance of the course materials.
For this project, I was able to draw on my own long-term yoga practice and knowledge of yoga.
Emails are a vital form of communication between you and your customer. They keep the customer informed, build relationships and let customers know what you have to offer. I like to think of every marketing email as a sort of love letter to your subscriber.
A powerful email sequence will nurture your list and lead them to purchase your products.
This email sample was the fourth in an automated workflow sequence. I designed the sequence to be highly segmented, based on the needs and awareness levels of the different lists. Having devised the strategy, I wrote a series of list-focused emails, each with targeted headlines and snippet copy.
The aim was to reduce unsubscribes, increase open and click-through rates, add value and ultimately to sell more of the product.
The Breathing Cure was an extensive ghost writing project that kickstarted my decision to specialise as a health and wellness copywriter. It involved significant research and creative input between October 2019 and August 2020. The project culminated in a 150,000 word book with nearly 100 pages of citations.
The book has a consistently high review rating on Amazon and received positive feedback from experts including James Nestor, author of the NY Times Bestseller, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art.
The US edition (Humanix) launched on Amazon.com in July 2021 at #1 in:
MyoTape Sport is a lip tape designed to promote nasal breathing, day and night. The original product was marketed as a sleep support to help prevent mouth snoring and reduce symptoms of sleep apnea. Its tagline: Sleep. Safe. Science.
I was tasked with producing the packaging copy for a sports version of the tape, to be used during training.
The tagline is designed to mirror the branding of the sleep product. It’s benefit-driven, and communicates the positive effects of nasal breathing for sports performance.
Creative challenges included conveying the science behind the product to a performance-motivated audience, and including a lot of information in a limited space.
“Johanna is wonderful to work with. The Breathing Cure would not have come into being without her help.
Her ability to write about complex topics in a simple, conversational and accurate way is extraordinary. She is diligent, professional and creative.”
