8 Copy Slip-ups that Ruin Your Conversion

Copywriting1. Hype. I strongly advise online businesses to make the strongest claims about their products and services that they can honestly deliver. But remember, big claims demand big proof.

The excessive use of exclamation points, generic adjectives (e.g. “awesome” or “”) and hard-to-believe promises (like anything in the “get rich quick” category) scare away more prospects then they attract.

2. Clichés. While it’s important to talk to your customers in language that resonates with them, clichés can hurt the effectiveness of your copy. They may be evidence of laziness and a lack of creativity on the part of the writer.
