Game of Thrones – Copywriting Lessons To Be Learned From GoT

Waiting for the new season, biting your nails over the suspense, and hiding away from spoilers – it’s all a part of life for a Game of Thrones lover.

If you’re a fan of this immensely popular series, you must appreciate the acting as well as the script. As a copywriter, I believe that there’s a lot to learn from this TV show.

And while we wait for season 8, here are a few quotes from the Game of Thrones to inspire your copywriting.

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die”

~Cersei Lannister

Love her or hate her, she’s been a major driving force in the game we all love. As a copywriter, excellent web copy is our throne and we all fight to achieve it. When you sit down to write a piece, you should either deliver your best or you shouldn’t do it at all.

Never let your guard down – not even for a second. Always produce quality content as if your life depends on it.

You know nothing, Jon Snow”


Ah Jon Snow, the heartthrob of Game of Thrones. If only he KNEW. We are all a bit like Jon Snow. While we might become experts at copywriting, we must remember that we cannot know everything every time.

And this becomes our driving force to learn new things. Even if you think you know everything about a topic, it won’t hurt in researching just a little bit more. Understand that we can learn more even if we consider ourselves to be know-it-alls.



It took us time to understand why Hodor kept saying Hodor all the time. And by the time we understood, he had already passed away. Hodor will always live in our hearts but we got to learn one thing from him.

If we keep repeating one thing, people will find it difficult to understand what we’re trying to convey. Hodor could still convey his message using gestures. But in the online world, all we have is text. If we repeat the same thing over and over again, it will lose its meaning.

I will take what is mine with fire and blood”

~ DaenerysTargaryen

In the field of copywriting, what you need is high-quality content. When you sit down to write, your goal is to create a high quality and engaging piece. And you must have it at all costs. It belongs to you and you must take it with fire and blood. Well not literally.

Instead of fire and blood, you need hard work and passion. Have that passion and motivation and that excellent content piece will soon be yours.

There are no men like me. Only me”

~Jaime Lannister

While it might seem like an arrogant statement, it also reflects confidence. You need to understand that the job assigned to you is perfect for you. Only you can do it – you’re the hero without a cape. It’s your task to deliver high-quality content.
