Tips are impressive but the fact is that it is really hard to follow them all while composing an interesting and engaging copy. But as we are copywriters, we have to do it at any cost. Thanks for the information and keep positing.

Thanks for posting the article, David. Many of the points are common sense, but always good to be able to re-focus.

I concur with the 2nd point - Get Right to the point.

businesses these days are targeting the new generation that has some ADHD problem (haha). Our attention span seems to be lacking and therefore, designs that encompass big and bold letters, minimum words and lots of graphics tend to do better than back in the day where details are important.

Though techniques are a bit banal, copy written in such a traditional manner never works for me as a customer, so why would I use it as a copywriter? I don't wanna be banal. I think it's much better if you can be creative and unusual and don't respect any writing rules at all. Of course you gotta have a special talent for this)

Actually, it's not difficult at all, if you are disciplined enough to commit the steps to memory. If you do that, executing them becomes second nature, like stopping at a red light.
