“Though he’s amassed formidable copywriting chops, the business value James contributes in a variety of roles might be more impressive.”

A really effective way to kick this process off is to think in terms of explaining your solution in the space of a half-panel on a brochure. Useful visual elements arranged strategically will help you reduce the number of words needed for context.

The resulting visual can take on the form of a workflow diagram or an infographic. From there, often there are ways to animate the solution in a short web video if warranted.

In any case, the goal is to make it as easy as possible for prospects to quickly grasp the value of your product.

  3. “… because of shortened attention spans online, it’s good for brands to be forced to compress their product offerings into 60 to 120 seconds and 150 to 300 words.” —

We’ll help you find the best ways to convey challenges and solutions to your prospects succinctly so they can respond immediately.
