Choose Your Words Wisely: Mastering the Language of Conversion
Mike Roberts, SpyFu
The simplest punctuation mark or phrase can change how audiences respond to your copy. There’s a proven language of conversion, and the words you use affect whether or not customers buy. You’ll learn what works even better than “free,” what audiences really think about exclamation points, and how building urgency can backfire if not done right. Studying millions of PPC ads over years tells us that some words convert better than their counterparts. In this presentation you will learn specific call-to-action phrases to use in your ads, social media, white papers and articles – and which commonly used words you should avoid. Expect to leave with new ideas that work in any industry and both B2B and B2C environments.
