There is one truth in copywriting that resonates loudly in the digital world. It is simply; “the more adjectives the writer uses, the less their words are trusted by their readers“.
This is most evident with content marketers and their shoddy infomarketing. They are responsible for the growing chronic disease known as infobesity.
The only benefit of this disease, is its ability to help with insomnia. In case you struggle to get to sleep dear reader, I recommend you do as I do. Download some “ultimate definitive guides to digital wonderfulness”. You’ll be snoring within minutes, even seconds, of starting to read one.
Here’s one of the latest pieces of killer content I downloaded. But be prepared for amazing revelations. The title is “The six pieces of content your business needs as growth fuel“. A bit of a clunky headline, but wait, there’s more…
Click on this image to learn the first of the six things you need. I guarantee this knowledge will blow your mind:
Are you stunned folks? Who’d have thought that the first things you need for your business as growth fuel, as against growth fuel for your business, are these:
- Home page
- Product/service page
- Contact us page
- About us page
This insight is truly remarkable. Thank goodness the thought leader published it. I ask you, “how could any online business succeed without a home page?” and “who would have thought to have one?”
I was breathless when I read it. It’s no wonder so many businesses fail. They’ve forgotten to put a home page on their website. It must be true, because it has been published as a piece of content marketing.
And here are some of the other “things” you also need for growth fuel:
- killer sales deck
- well-built sales playbook
- irresistable lead magnet
- prospect nurturing email
You probably also need a “dejargoniser” to interpret WTF the author is talking about, not to mention an “adjective reductionator” to trim the content flab.
Have to go now – am off to blow my client’s minds about home pages. They won’t believe what they’ve been doing wrong…
