Thumbs up Very useful article

Great brief on words to use in online writing to get results.

I have used some of them: Free. New. Easy. Fast or quick.

They work.

It's amazing -- on my home page I will sometimes change the wording of a promotion just by reorganizing the sentence. It makes a huge difference in click-throughs.

Also, I've found you have to keep it short, but not too short. More than 3 lines of type and nobody wants to wade through and read it. But not enough information, and you don't capture enough attention.

I've also had good results from writing in conversational voice, rather than a copy writer's voice. As if you are having a phone conversation with a friend and telling them about something new.

Jeff is definitely right on!

That was a great article.....I can see that I am going to have to do some slight altering of some words on my website. Subtle changes can make the difference I guess.
