Score your site out of 10 in each of these 5 areas.
You have 30 minutes, starting… now – go!
How compelling are your headlines? Are they pithy and attention-grabbing? Do they link easily to the copy below?
Are you saying ‘welcome to…’ your company? Or maybe using your company name in the headline – instead of writing a compelling headline?

2. ME/YOU FOCUS
Pronouns should be 75% about the visitor or customer, 25% about yourself. Visitors want to know what’s in it for them, not the history of your company or your personal background.
SCORE YOUR SITE OUT OF 10 FOR ME/YOU FOCUS
3. EASY LANGUAGE
Keep sentences simple, paragraphs short and use bullet points, indents, bold and italic text. Edit promo copy down to get rid of redundant words. Forget the Daily Telegraph or Guardian. Keep it Daily Mirror.
