Yesterday, I posted the following copywriting tip within LinkedIn:
“A contact has updated their website with new wording. I noticed that there are some typos. I have found that if I point out grammatical and punctuation challenges, the changes are made and little learning takes place. So I gave this feedback: “There are a few typos on the homepage. I suggest that you read the webcopy out loud and slowly. When I lead copywriting workshops, the delegates are amazed by what they pick up, when they do this.”
I was quite surprised by the amount of feedback that it received. At the time of writing this comprised: 7 Likes, 4 Comments and 572 Views (scroll down to see a screenshot). Nothing to write home about, you may say, but not bad for a short social media update.
As you can see, the update comprised a tip. It was concise. As people began to comment, I responded to their comments.
This morning, I have had 2 new connection requests within LinkedIn and several new notifications. So I have posted another tip, this time on MailChimp training.
LinkedIn is a big subject and they have a habit of moving things around, don’t they?
