Cut the copy

first_img 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Marketers are word people. We like words. After all, that’s why we’re in marketing. But are consumers reading your words? In all honesty, probably not. Why? One reason is because we are writing too much.It’s time we cut the copy.People are consuming their information in small bites. The reality is they don’t have the time or the interest to read everything you are writing.As marketing guru Seth Godin says, “Say what you need to say, then leave. Less is actually more.”Where possible, use bullets, lists, subheads and short paragraphs. If necessary, break a long item into multiple pieces. The key is to make your copy “scannable.” Time how long it takes to read the article, brochure, postcard, web page, etc. If it’s more than 90 seconds, odds are they will go to something else. continue reading »last_img read more

GETTY IMAGES – GETTY4Leno’s howler gifted Chelsea their equaliserThe Blues, who did improve after the break, were forced to change the system entirely and even introduce 19-year-old Tariq Lamptey for his first-team debut, making their victory all the more remarkable.Frank Lampard will wonder how his side didn’t suffer a sixth defeat in eight matches, while Arteta will question how on earth he is winless in his opening two matches.Arsenal ripped into a disorganised and disoriented Chelsea from the off. Chelsea completed a stunning late turnaround to beat Arsenal 2-1 despite being outplayed for much of the match.New Gunners boss Mikel Arteta looked set to take an impressive victory from his first home match in charge before a Bernd Leno howler gifted Jorginho an 83rd-minute equaliser. GETTY IMAGES – GETTYAbraham scored a dramatic winnerAnd things went from bad to worse four minutes later as the Blues caught Arsenal on the break and snatched all three points thanks to a smart turn and finish from Tammy Abraham.It seemed impossible after Chelsea were blown away by a resurgent Arsenal, who were electric inside the opening 30 minutes.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stooped low to head the hosts in front on 13 minutes and the Gunners dominated for large parts of the game thereafter.center_img Arteta will be left scratching his headLeno misjudged Chelsea’s free-kick to miss the ball entirely and gift Jorginho a tap-in.Both Arteta and his keeper had their heads in their hands from that clanger, but the misery was only just beginning.Chelsea broke at pace, with Abraham and Willian linking up before the England striker conjured a decisive finish.

BRAZIL 2014 :Valdes Out Of World Cup

first_imgBarcelona and Spain goalkeeper Victor Valdes has undergone successful surgery on his knee injury and is expected to be sidelined for seven months, the Catalan giants have announced.Valdes tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Barca’s 3-0 win over Celta Vigo on March 26 after landing awkwardly while saving a free-kick.The 32-year-old Spain international went under the knife in Augsburg, Germany, on Monday morning and Barca confirmed on their website the surgery had gone successfully.Barca also announced that Valdes would likely be absent for seven months.A statement on www.fcbarcelona.com read: “Victor Valdes has been operated on this Monday morning by doctors Ulrich Boenisch and Ricard Pruna in Augsburg on his torn anterior cruciate ligament.“The knee’s internal cartilage has been sewn up and the operation was concluded successfully. Valdes will be out of action for approximately seven months.”The injury means Valdes will now miss this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil. The long-serving custodian has long planned to leave the Nou Camp at the end of his contract in June, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen having already agreed a summer move from German side Borussia Monchangladbach.Valdes was set to leave Barca on a Bosman free transfer, with both Manchester City and Monaco linked with the goalkeeper. However, Barca could now offer the shot-stopper a one-year deal to cover his rehabilitation from injury as he may not play again until 2015.Valdes has played 535 senior games for Barca since making his debut over a decade ago, and won six Primera Division titles, three Champions League crowns and two Copa del Reys among a host of other trophies.He was also part of the Spain squad that won the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship.last_img read more
