+ What are the Responsibilities of a Junior Copywriter

What are the Responsibilities of a Junior Copywriter?

A copywriter is a person who is paid to create “copy” – content made from words (or other forms of copy) designed to drive action. A junior copywriter works directly below the senior copywriter, usually in the marketing and advertising industry. Nowadays copywriters are found in other industries related to copy-relevant communication. In general content creators start from the use of words.

Junior Copywriter Responsibilities

The role of a junior copywriter can vary from agency to agency, from project to project, and from goal to goal but in all cases, it’s common to engage in SEO activities that include:

  • Write content for blog posts and advertisements that promote products or services,
  • Create copy or text to complement visual concepts across many platforms,
  • Create content for marketing materials,
  • Press and print advertising copy,
  • Press releases content,

Junior copywriters are required to apply their creative skills in copy creation and presentation. Also, conducting SEO and keyword research is part of the main responsibilities. In many Marketing Agencies, they ask Junior Copywriters to engage in updating product descriptions and writing promotional text for banners and online ads.

What are the Responsibilities of a Junior Copywriter?

About SEO

SEO is a long-term investment in time and effort and suitable only for market players who intend to stay in the game and lead the way. For people looking for easy money or easy fame or speed results, SEO will always look like a nightmare.

Search Engine Optimization holds the keys to business success and recognition. Paid marketing promotions will not get you too far and more importantly the given results won’t last. Rankings and search engine position changes dramatically every week.

If a company invests only in paid digital activities and neglects SEO, it will face huge disappointments. Paid promotions can put your brand at the top one day and drive you to the last page the next day!

Nothing compares with the solid & earned high rankings based on a mature and tailor-made Search Engine Optimization Strategy. In other words, you pay less if you set a clean SEO strategy plan from the very beginning of your efforts to stand out.

Goodbye March! Welcome April! Ideadeco Newsletter

April is bringing Spring into our lives! Every year, the cold of winter melts away and spring brings a new beginning. New beginnings are on the way, it’s time to welcome them.

Once again we rely on History to gain knowledge and express gratitude for the Freedom we experience today. On 25th March 2021, Greece celebrated the 200th Anniversary of Greek Independence Day in 1821.

The Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution led by Greek revolutionaries against the Ottoman Empire between 1821 and 1830. Greeks all over the world celebrate Greek Independence Day, on 25 March, which is a national holiday in Greece.

Bicentennial Greece

The Greek Revolution of 1821 is a pivotal chapter in Greek history and a piece in the puzzle of world history. The Greek Revolution of 1821, established the significance of Democracy and Freedom. It was formed in relationship with other revolutions and wars for independence that flared up at approximately the same time, and had a strong effect on the rest of the world.

Greece celebrated Independence Day with a spectacular Parade in Athens on 25 March 2021. Foreign dignitaries, including Prince Charles, representing the UK, are among the few spectators of the event.

For the first time, troops in historical uniforms led the parade, followed by mechanized columns and marching units, which were headed by the “Evzones”, while air formations were flying in the skies over Athens. Read more details about the Bicentennial Greece Celebrations on 25th March 2021.

EVZONES

An Art Project with a long history

Dimitra Hatziadam has photographed and edited the photo exhibition “Evzones, the guardians of the unsung”. Dimitra Hatziadam spend five years behind the closed doors of this elite military unit. She is the only accredited woman photographer of the Presidential Guard.

The Evzones stand as a national symbol and this realisation is always in their mind when they are trained; when they pace; when they stand still at the Sacred Rock of the Acropolis for the official hoisting and lowering of the flag; when they honour the Unknown Soldier. The Evzone is an anonymous Greek soldier who gives his life for freedom, but he also represents all those who fought and fell. His uniform is full of symbols that relate to milestones of Greek history and significant events.

What to Post on Instagram: 12 Ideas for Your Feed

Yesterday we received an interesting question about Ideadeco’s Instagram feed. A newbie Instagrammer wanted to know which of our IG posts had the best reach for January and February. Truth be told we had many balls in the air during the last two months and we didn’t publish anything about our brand’s Instagram feed.

Let’s fix that, today!

To our surprise, some of our best promising posts didn’t perform as well as we expected them. Take into consideration that we almost never spend any money on advertising on Instagram. Usually, we choose 1 or 2 posts every month to promote with less than 15 dollars per month. As a team, we strongly believe in organic results and in building a real connection with our digital community.

We don’t want to pay for people’s attention. We prefer to gain 15 likes and 5 comments from real people that truly care about our content instead of getting hits from hundreds of bot interactions with automated responses.

Here is the collection of the best performing Instagram posts in our brand’s account feed. Feel free to get inspired by our ideas!

What I like most at Elculture

My favorite columns at Elculture are Elcwomen and Elcblog. My first stop is their amazing blog because they share news and opinions that give me a new perception about hot issues. The second stop is everything they publish about women empowerment. They talk about this sensitive topic with respect and without sugaring the pill. In the last two weeks, I have discovered their podcasts which have managed to attract successfully my attention. Especially these ones:

The Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution led by Greek revolutionaries against the Ottoman Empire between 1821 and 1830. Greeks all over the world celebrate Greek Independence Day, on 25 March, which is a national holiday in Greece. This year it also marks the 200th anniversary of Greek Independence Day.

It was formed in relationship with other revolutions and wars for independence that flared up at approximately the same time, and had a strong effect on the rest of the world.

“Two centuries ago, a handful of determined fighters in and outside Greece raised the banner of independence,” said Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, referring to the 19th-century Greek revolts, joined by disparate foreign adventurers and intellectuals known as the “Philhellenics.”

“With the help of their allies, they fought heroically and won their freedom,” said Mitsotakis as Athens was visited by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, Britain’s Prince Charles and French Defense Minister Florence Parly.

In an address via Greek television, US President Joe Biden said both the United States and Greece “shared commitment to liberty, human rights and the rule of law.”

French President Emmanuel Macron sent a message to Athens that “we will stand by your side when history is unfair to you.”

For the first time, troops in historical uniforms led the parade, followed by mechanized columns and marching units, which were headed by the “Evzones”, while air formations were flying in the skies over Athens.

Before the beginning of the parade for the Greek Independence Day, a wreath was laid at the Monument of the Unknown Soldier by the Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

Earlier in the morning, the Greek Presidential Guard (Evzones) raised the Greek flag on the Acropolis. The ceremony at the Acropolis was attended by the Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The national anthem was sung by the internationally-renowned soprano Anastasia Zanni.

The Celebrations Started at National Gallery in Athens

The extension and renovation of the National Gallery constitutes “the first major project of the Culture and Sports Ministry in the new decade,” according to a ministry announcement. The National Gallery is being symbolically delivered on March 24, 2021.

The National Gallery marks the start of the celebrations for the 200-year anniversary of the Greek Revolution. The Greek art of 19th and 20th century is hosted in the new National Gallery, develops alongside the history of free Greece and the establishment of the Greek state.

The gallery reception on 24 March formed part of an official events programme commemorating the bicentenary of the declaration of the Greek War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire on 25 March 1821. The Greek prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, welcomed foreign dignitaries such as the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Russian prime minister and the president of Cyprus to tour the new displays.

Founded in 1900, the National Gallery holds a collection of more than 20,000 works by Greek artists and international figures, including El Greco and Picasso. Around 1,000 works will feature in the rehang, starting with a sculpture by Rodin outside the entrance and Panayiotis Tetsis’s monumental painting Street Market (triptych) (1979-82) in the atrium.

The museum is set to open with a special display dedicated to the War of Independence, titled 1821 in Painting: Greece Demands its Historical Art Gallery. Among the works are Scene from the Greek War of Independence (1856) by Eugène Delacroix and The Reception of Lord Byron at Missolonghi (1861) by Theodoros Vryzakis.

“The National Gallery will open its doors to Greek and foreign visitors and art lovers when the conditions allow with the temporary exhibition “1821 in painting. Greece demands its historic Art Gallery” with pieces of art from 19th-century collections,” the culture ministry added.

Greece Celebrates 200 Years After the Greek Revolution in 1821

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Athens for a two-day visit in celebration of 200 years of Greek independence on Wednesday, with Prince Charles extolling the country for having “long held the most special place in my heart.”

Arriving in the early evening, Prince Charles and Camilla were greeted at the Athens International Airport by the UK’s Ambassador to Greece, Kate Smith. They then traveled to the National Gallery for its official reopening ceremony.

In the evening, Prince Charles and Camilla arrived for an official state dinner at the Presidential Mansion, hosted by Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou. During the meal, Prince Charles gave a speech highlighting his family history in Greece.

He said, “Greece is the land of my grandfather; and of my father’s birth, nearly one hundred years ago, in the centenary year of Greek Independence. Later, it was in Athens that my dear grandmother, Princess Alice, during the dark years of Nazi occupation, sheltered a Jewish family – an act for which in Israel she is counted as ‘Righteous Among The Nations.’

Prince Charles continued, “In feeling a profound connection to Greece—her landscapes, her history and her culture—I am hardly alone: there is something of her essence in us all. As the wellspring of Western civilization, Greece’s spirit runs through our societies and our democracies. Without her, our laws, our art, our way of life, would never have flourished as they have.”

In speaking about the history of Greek triumphs, Prince Charles drew parallels to the country’s economic crisis and the coronavirus pandemic response, saying, “I have such admiration for the fortitude of the Greek people, and have been particularly touched by the remarkable resilience of her youth. It gives me special pride that my Prince’s Trust International has been able to help so many young people in Greece into work, training, or to start their own enterprises, empowering them to achieve their potential and to contribute to their country’s prosperity and strength.

“Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, as we all work to rebuild our societies and our economies from this year of previously unimaginable upheaval, and to set our world on a more sustainable path, perhaps we can take some inspiration from the courage, determination and ambition of 1821. Once again, the stakes could hardly be higher. The choices we make will determine the fate not only of our nations, but of this singular planet which we all share. For my part, to support this vital endeavour, I have worked with hundreds of CEOs around the world to develop a roadmap that places people, planet and Nature at the heart of our economic transition.  I have called this plan the Terra Carta, and I am deeply touched that Athens wishes to enact the ideas it offers.

“Your Excellency, today, as in 1821, Greece can count on her friends in the United Kingdom. The ties between us are strong and vital, and make a profound difference to our shared prosperity and security. Just as our histories are closely bound together, so too are our futures. In this spirit, tomorrow, stood beside you once again, your British friends will take great pride in Dionýsios Solomós’s rousing exhortation: Χαίρε, ω χαίρε, ελευθεριά [Hail, O Hail Liberty]. Ζήτω η Ελλάς! [Long live Greece].”

EVZONES – An Art Project with a long history

Dimitra Hatziadam has photographed and edited the photo exhibition “Evzones, the guardians of the unsung”. Dimitra Hatziadam spend five years behind the closed doors of this elite military unit. She is the only accredited woman photographer of the Presidential Guard.

The Evzones stand as a national symbol and this realisation is always in their mind when they are trained; when they pace; when they stand still at the Sacred Rock of the Acropolis for the official hoisting and lowering of the flag; when they honour the Unknown Soldier. The Evzone is an anonymous Greek soldier who gives his life for freedom, but he also represents all those who fought and fell. His uniform is full of symbols that relate to milestones of Greek history and significant events.

On 1821 bicentennial, Macron says France will support Greece

French President Emmanuel Macron said the Greek people’s struggle for independence in the 19th century serves as an inspiration for France and Europe and sent a message of support during an interview aired by state-run broadcaster ERT on Wednesday 24 March 2021.

BICENTENNIAL INITIATIVE 1821-2021
By Onassis Foundation

The celebrations for the 200 years since the outbreak of the Greek Revolution of 1821 and the War of Independence are both an occasion to recognize the struggles and sacrifices of the PEOPLE, while it also requires to think on the present-day position of Greece and its future.

In order to create a locus for a common understanding about the bicentenary of the Greek national reawakening, National Bank of Greece – in light of its long history, which is closely linked to the creation and development of the Greek state and the philhellene individuals responsible for establishing the Bank – has turned to the following institutions to provide input, recognizing their highly commendable work and contribution to the wider Greek community: the Eugenides Foundation, the B & M Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts & Music, the Captain Vassilis & Carmen Constantakopoulos Foundation, the Lambrakis Foundation, the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation, the Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, the A.G. Leventis Foundation, the Bodossaki Foundation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the Foundation for EDUCATION and European CULTURE, and the ONASSIS FOUNDATION.

+ Clean Monday in Greece

Clean Monday in Greece

Grab your kite and join celebrations on Clean Monday (Kathara Deftera) in Greece. Greeks spend the day outdoors flying their handmade kites and gather around the table for the traditional Clean Monday meal or as they call it Koulouma.

Clean Monday, also known as Pure Monday, Ash Monday, Monday of Lent or Green Monday, is the first day of Great Lent throughout Eastern Christianity and is a moveable feast, falling on the 7th Monday before Pascha. This feast of spring is a public holiday in Greece.

The last Sunday of the carnival festive season signals the end of Carvival in Greece and the beginning of fasting until Easter Sunday. For Greeks it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate spring, weather permitting. Most families choose to have picnics in nearby locations and enjoy some outdoor activities like flying a kite.

The traditional dishes for Koulouma include lagana (a special unleavened bread eaten only on this day), taramosalata (a fish roe spread), dolmadakia (vine leaves stuffed with rice), seafood salads, shellfish, or a special semolina pudding known as “halvas”.

Clean Monday Dishes and Recipes

Clean Monday in Greece involves good food and good company. This year due to COVID-19 restictions most families and close friends will stay indoors but that doesn’t mean that we can not enjoy a delicious meal. Here is how you can add Clean Monday dishes on your table.

  • Lagana – a lightly unleavened flatbread made especially on Clean Monday. See the recipe here.
  • Taramosalata – Tarama is the most famous of all Greek dips. See the recipe here.
  • Octopus, Shrimp, Kalamari – seafood … what else? See the recipes here.
  • Halva – eaten as a dessert, made with tahini, a sesame paste, and sugar, often combined with nuts or chocolate and baked in a square. See the recipe here.
  • Wine or Tsipouro. Who needs a reason to drink?

Make your own Kite

Most older Greeks know how to make their own kite and love to teach younger generations this old tradition. This is how you can make your own kite at home.

The History of Kites

Source: American Kitefliers

Many scholars believe that they were developed in China. Other evidence suggests that kites were used by cultures in Malaysia, Indonesia, and the South Pacific as fishing instruments made of natural materials like leaves and reeds. Anthropological evidence suggests that kites may have been independently developed in other areas, but these claims are not well documented.

In 450 BC, famous Chinese philosopher Mo-tse spent three years carefully crafting a wooden bird to fly on a tethered line. There is some debate on whether this reference is considered a kite.

The earliest written account of kite flying is in China in 200 BC, supporting China’s claim to the origin of the kite. The Chinese General Han Hsin of the Han Dynasty flew a kite over the walls of a city he was attacking to measure how far his army would have to tunnel to reach past the defenses.

By the 13th Century, kite flying had spread by traders from China to Korea and across Asia to India and the Middle East. Each area developed a distinctive style of kite and cultural purpose for flying them.

What to Post on Instagram: 12 Ideas for Your Feed

Yesterday we received an interesting question about Ideadeco’s Instagram feed. A newbie Instagrammer wanted to know which of our IG posts had the best reach for January and February. Truth be told we had many balls in the air during the last two months and we didn’t publish anything about our brand’s Instagram feed. Let’s fix that, today!

To our surprise, some of our best promising posts didn’t perform as well as we expected them. Take into consideration that we almost never spend any money on advertising on Instagram. Usually, we choose 1 or 2 posts every month to promote with less than 15 dollars per month. As a team, we strongly believe in organic results and in building a real connection with our digital community.

We don’t want to pay for people’s attention. We prefer to gain 15 likes and 5 comments from real people that truly care about our content instead of getting hits from hundreds of bot interactions with automated responses.

After the latest incidents in my second home country, I had to find a reason to believe in democracy again. Barack Obama’s new book “A Promised Land” was the only motivation that could restore my faith in Democracy & Justice. It’s a book full of true facts and a deeply personal account of history in the making—from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy. Thank you Mister President @barackobama for everything you’ve done for all of us and for your legacy in humanity. I am deeply grateful for your outstanding leadership.

A hard lesson I learned early in my life is to be open to changes and respond on time. When being flexible becomes your second nature then it gets easier to take the next steps (both in life and in business). Let’s be honest, do you know any adults out there who didn’t have to shake up their original plans and create new ones over the last 12 months?

Last year all my previous plans were canceled. Last year I had to create new business plans for the following 5 years including the new conditions we are facing. Thankfully everything turned out all right and we are doing more than great for 2021 & 2022 business contracts.

Ideadeco SEO Copywriting & Digital Marketing Agency is welcoming the beginning of the new year with the addition of 8 new team members and plenty of new clients from all over Europe & the USA.

So this year, we know that we are equipped to handle change, failure, and success no matter what 2021 will throw to our door. We made it through 2020, so everything is doable!

Πήρα το αγαπημένο μου βιβλίο ποίησης και κάθισα δίπλα στα κύματα να απολαύσω αυτούς τους ξεχασμένους στίχους, του Τάσου Λειβαδίτη:

Αὐτὸ τὸ ἀστέρι εἶναι γιὰ ὅλους μας

Θά ῾θελᾳ νὰ φωνάξω τ᾿ ὄνομά σου, ἀγάπη, μ᾿ ὅλη μου τὴν δύναμη.

Νὰ τ᾿ ἀκούσουν οἱ χτίστες ἀπ᾿ τὶς σκαλωσιὲς καὶ νὰ φιλιοῦνται μὲ τὸν ἥλιο

Νὰ τὸ μάθουν στὰ καράβια οἱ θερμαστὲς καὶ ν᾿ ἀνασάνουν ὅλα τὰ τριαντάφυλλα

Νὰ τ᾿ ἀκούσει ἡ ἄνοιξη καὶ νά ῾ρχεται πιὸ γρήγορα

Νὰ τὸ μάθουν τὰ παιδιὰ γιὰ νὰ μὴν φοβοῦνται τὸ σκοτάδι,

Νὰ τὸ λένε τὰ καλάμια στὶς ἀκροποταμιές, τὰ τρυγόνια πάνω στοὺς φράχτες

Νὰ τ᾿ ἀκούσουν οἱ πρωτεύουσες τοῦ κόσμου καὶ νὰ τὸ ξαναποῦνε μ ὅλες τὶς καμπάνες τους

Νὰ τὸ κουβεντιάζουνε τὰ βράδια οἱ πλύστρες χαϊδεύοντας τὰ πρησμένα χέρια τους.

Νὰ τὸ φωνάξω τόσο δυνατὰ
ποὺ νὰ μὴν ξανακοιμηθεῖ κανένα ὄνειρο στὸν κόσμο
καμιὰ ἐλπίδα πιὰ νὰ μὴν πεθάνει.

Νὰ τ᾿ ἀκούσει ὁ χρόνος καὶ νὰ μὴν σ᾿ ἀγγίξει, ἀγάπη μου, ποτέ.

(Χωρίς ποίηση, ο κόσμος μας θα ήταν τόσο φτωχός.)

Instagram Loves Hashtags

All users know that Instagram Community adores hashtags. But always use the right group of hashtags for your content. Instagram is all about engagement. Great captures combined with high quality and meaningful text with a healthy dose of the right hashtags. If you want to discover what can help your Instagram account to thrive then visit this article: Instagram Winning Tips.

Avoid Banned Instagram Hashtags

Yes, there is a list with banned Instagram hashtags that you should avoid if you don’t want to get penalized by Instagram. The bad news is that this list is changing every week. The good news is that we can check our hashtags before we add them to our IG feed.

Although banned Instagram hashtags mean extra work for each post, in general, I find it a clever way to restrict spam behavior inside the platform.  Here is the updated list of banned Instagram hashtags.

+ Balkan Women WordPress Online Meetup

Balkan Women WordPress Online Meetup

The first Balkan Women WordPress Online Meetup will take place on International Women’s Day, 8th March 2021. Book your seat, now!

Every 3rd Friday of each month, the Balkan Women of WordPress will gather to discuss various topics, to encourage and train diverse female speakers, to inspire them to get involved with the WordPress Community.

The organizing team’s intention is to share their knowledge and experiences, to provide new skills, discuss job opportunities and support each other in the quest for a joyful WordPress journey. The goal is to support women (cisgender and those who identify as women) developers, designers, and bloggers who are passionate about using the WordPress platform.

Online Meetup for WP Women

Their focus is on setting the foundations of empowering all women-identified Meetup members working not only with WordPress plugins and themes but also in eCommerce, branding, marketing, journalism, business, entrepreneurship, and more.

Balkan Women WordPress Meetup is addressing the issue of women not participating in tech communities in general as well as the WordPress Community. The team wishes to define the reasons and obstacles that keep women at distance from tech communities. As they state in their official LinkedIn page:

For a while, this matter seemed distant from the inclusivity the WordPress Community is all about. However, after discussions, we realized that women need a space that would make them feel more welcome and safe until they get to know the Community well and decide to take the next step and participate more actively. And we, as members who have been around for a long time, are here to help pave the way for newcomers.

1st Balkan Women WordPress Meetup

Visit the event’s official page on Meetup and book your spot, today: 1st Balkan Women WordPress Meetup. The discussion will start with the decision to create the Balkan Women WordPress Meetup and the schedule will continue with:

  1. Open conversation: Female WP meetups and Balkan Women WP Meetup introduction
  2. Discussion: Participating in the women and nonbinary led WordPress release with
  3. Tammie Lister, Head of design at Extendify, and
  4. Josepha Haden Chomphosy, WordPress Executive Director
