Marty Note
Back in 2005 when we went to work and used our company's fast T1 lines to shop we didn't know inventing an extension to Thanksgiving. One thing about Internet retailers, we will watch our data. 

Everyone has their own T1 lines now, but our deal flow makes the holiday now. Now we keep the trend going. Today we institutionalize something that started for a very different reason.

I heard Walmart call this "cyber week" and you can understand why. As a Director of Ecommerce we would see sales build, build and build until the last ground shipping day before 12.25 and that was usually the biggest day of the year. With all this deal flow, today may be the biggest day of the year.

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Web Copy
Writing web copy that wins hearts and minds is easier and harder than you think. Easier because tiny changes make huge differences in customer engagement and your website's ability to convert. Harder because learning to slow down and think about things like empathy, using OPW (Other People's Words) and the right way to use acronyms takes practice, discipline and courage. 

Here are the tips we share on Curagami:

  • Use OPW (Other People’s Words) – Trusted sources or industry gurus make excellent sources
  • Use Customer Words – Customers know you listen when they see features of User Generated Content (UGC)
  • Touch the Universal – R&D is hard, takes time and money is a “universal truth.”
  • Cliches – Cliches are another “truth” you can turn in your favor
  • Empathy Words – Use words that create a sense of empathy between YOU and whoever is reading your copy words such as “collaborate,” “teamed with” and “love.”
  • Acronyms – Acronyms can convey industry knowledge, but be sure to explain fully the first time you use an acronym
