You want to "WOW" your audience! GiftedWriting.com WebSiteWrite.com
Due to popular demand, I have brought back online my original WebSiteWrite.com site pages written many years ago (see below for Hot Tips Part 1). Check here frequently for more exciting web content writing as this page is blended with GiftedWriting.com and updated!
Use an important search engine keyword(s) in your domain name. Your domain is the first thing your readers read, remember and use to find/open your site. This is very important for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as well.
Write an attention-grabbing SLOGAN / HEADING for your opening home page. Let your online readers know what your web site is about immediately and create excitement. (Close on an upbeat as well - especially your home page. )
Your home page is your web site's GRAND OPENING. Write to entice your audience.
MAKE YOUR AUDIENCE WANT YOUR PRODUCTS / SERVICES and KNOW WHY YOUR WEB SITE IS THE BEST.
Use interactive language. Just the way a picture can evoke a thousand words, phrase your wording to generate a thousand ideas.
Break up monotony, hold your readers' attention and ease eye strain on the screen.
Avoid complex sentences and long pages. Keep your focus clear and sharp. Use "sharp bullets" of information for emphasis.
To heighten the "tempo" of your web site, imagine you are writing a theatrical script or movie.
Write with an eye towards content development (like plot development), rhythm, dramatic tension, denouement). Your web site should be alive with energy - and exciting to read.
Draw your web site visitors into your site. Let your audience connect with you.
Ask them questions (important in headings and slogans), and try to make your web site "audience centered" (similar to student centered classroom experiences).
Dull is boring; aim for energy.
Because many readers exhibit "eye strain" and "skim read" when viewing a web site, limit your paragraph sizes to 5 or 6 lines. Too many inexperienced writers commit "overkill."
One GREAT SENTENCE is worth several sentences on the same subject.
Don't try to jam everything about your products and services into one sentence or paragraph. Whet your readers' appetite and write with a keen sense of advertising instead.
Use a few, carefully selected visual tools (i.e., fonts / sizes, capitalization, underlining, different alignments, images) to ease eye strain and to provide emphasis, but don't use so many that your work looks confusing instead of polished.
Be very aware of how font size and color affects your readers (for more info regarding"colors" visit Hot Tips for Webs, Part 2).
A larger font is easier to read, but your sentences should be briefer. Smaller print sizes allow more information to be compacted into a page, but will it be read? No, probably it will be skipped or skimmed.
READING THE ONLINE SCREEN IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN READING A PRINTED PAGE. Find the right balance between the two for your web site.
These few "hot tips" - guaranteed - will attract and motivate readers to purchase your products and services through your web site.
