"I wrote a script and gave it to a guy that reads scripts. And he read it and said he really likes it, but he thinks I need to rewrite it. I said, "F*ck that, I'll just make a copy." ~Mitch Hedberg

In the book  "The Right to Write", Julia Cameron invites all to be writers.

Still the core thing that people get wrong.
You want to grow your business, right? You want downloads of your app, people buying your products, readers on your blog, and evangelists on social media, don’t you? Fair enough, that’s what we all want. But you’re missing something essential. People won’t ever know you, hear from you, understand you, follow you, or engage with[ Continue Reading... ]

This really is a basic lesson that we forget while caught up in the day to day activities of building a business. Will there be more details on exactly how?

Yeah this is one of the reasons I recommend SP/Gen. It's also true that so many beautiful designs detract from conversions and other on-site goals, not to mention the SEO aspect.
