Is a chatty tone of voice unprofessional?
All it means is your business sounds like you. You don’t have to swear or use words you wouldn’t use when talking to your customers in person or over the phone.
It doesn’t suit every industry, but if it suits yours – go for it.
Why wouldn’t you want to sound like you – you’re friggin’ awesome!
Found Dragon Soop a bit too on the nose?
DBop! is a prime example of a chatty tone of voice that has the perfect mix of chatty and professional copy.
Even though I’ve used sayings like, ‘kicking-ass’ and ‘pretty damn clever’, they’re neither out of place or make the content unprofessional.
It’s bang on!
Let your customers hear your voice.
When you write in a chatty tone of voice, you make your customers feel like you understand their problems – and they want to deal with someone who can do that.

Be too rigid and you’ll sound bland and forgettable.
Be understanding, empathetic and, well, you and people will want what you have to offer.
Matthew turns pieces around at short notice & follows the brief so well the first drafts are practically spot on in terms of content & tone of voice.
Matthew is very professional & communicates well.
I can highly recommend him as a wordsmith.
