Copywriting Tips

I remembering hearing that a goldfish has an average attention span of 9 seconds ... and humans only have 8 seconds.

If you work in marketing, that presents a challenge. Your audience is distracted before you even try to get in front of them. 

Check out some tips from CopyBlogger on How to Be a Copywriter (The Sneaky Trick You Must Learn). I liked the idea of keeping your ads simple and being clear on what you are asking someone to do. 

How are you are working to get -- and keep --the attention of your audience?

A tried and true technique is to share a relevant but short experience to grab the readers' attention before tying it in with whatever point you are making. EX: "I once sent an email campaign with a truly bland subject line. I believed people would open it anyway because of the company's reputation and previous open rates. Boy, was I wrong! The open rates on the send tanked our monthly average. Lesson learned! So here's why taking a few extra minutes to write a compelling subject line is imperative."

Wonderful article @Nicole Verardi I have found that using anecdotes, metaphors, and similes can help grasp people's attention and make certain concepts easier to understand. Relating topics to other universally well-known aspects can help especially when you're trying to inform as well as entertain. Including a call to action can be so important too as mentioned in the article you shared!
