Copy that converts: social ads, banner ads, in-app messages
To support the launch of Keyword, a new word game developed in-house, these ads occupied the Washington Post homepage on June 22, 2023. The copy spoke directly to "word nerds" as a playful reference to our reader audience. This project involved close collaboration with our brand team designers, our games product developers and ad operations managers.
To promote The Washington Post's partnership with Headspace Health, I wrote ad copy for a suite of digital display ads, social ads, onsite paywalls and emails. This headline in particular garnered praise for striking the right balance of both brands and nodding to the complementary benefits of a meditation and news subscription bundle.
