Your New Copywriting Assistant for High-Converting Copy

My recent social media posts were written by Ai. His name is Jarvis and he’s honestly the best thing to happen in my life!

It all started when I was trying to come up with ideas for an article but couldn’t think of anything good enough or fresh.

This model/theory was created for analysing product features (especially in product development) and their impact on customer satisfaction, but…

…by using them to analyse other parts of your business, you can benefit from a completely new take on your business’s strengths and weaknesses.

This is the Kano Model. Read the article to find out more.
