Issue #33: Your homepage [might] be broken
I know, two weeks in a row talking about messaging, but that’s because messaging is all that matters in marketing. If you aren’t speaking your audience’s language, then it’s game over.
⁉️ Marketing Tip: Every Page Needs to Answer These THREE Questions
I saw an eye-opening post on LinkedIn similar to what I shared in our last issue about not fitting copy to design but fitting your design to copy. They went a step further and classified the TYPE of content on a homepage into three categories: Persuasive, Feature, & Fluff.
Here’s the breakdown:
Feature Copy: 60%
Fluff Copy: 30%
Persuasive Copy: 10%
The problem is, that most homepages are a list of features. They put too much of their effort into describing ‘The What’.
Obviously, you need to include what your offering is…but you need to go further than that.
You need to position your product or service in a way that resonates with your audience and covers WHY they should even care in the first place.
So do yourself a favor today and check out a client’s homepage or your own and evaluate whether your page answers the following questions successfully:
- What is it?
- Why should I care?
- What do I do next?
