I can convince you in ten words . . . to keep reading. Still with me? Probably because I’ve made an implied promise. You’re hoping to learn how to engage readers and prevent them from clicking away.
That’s what I do: engage users across a variety of platforms. I write for broadcast, print, the internet. I teach others to write effectively. And I’m deathly allergic to typos and jargon.
I’m also a media coach who’s been on both ends of the interview process, so my clients come away with the skills they need to message confidently, effectively, and succinctly.
By the time you finish this paragraph, I’ll have convinced you to read 179 words. If you get to the bottom, that’ll be 199 words — which is 82% more than most people read. And, BTW, that first sentence you read up at the top? Those were the ten words that convinced you to keep reading.
