We have already discussed rules regarding: (1) unique descriptions, (2) usage of keywords, (3) usage of descriptions patterns, (4) aiming at the target audience, (5) clarity of message, (6) giving evidences and (7) mechanisms responsible for CTA. Now is time for some more hints.
The Rules of Effective Copywriting. Part 3.
High quality of products’ descriptions and articles should come together with proper visual presentation of website’s content. Good pictures or gaphics is not enough. Designing a website we should always remember about text formatting. The articles and descriptions shouldn’t be too long – don’t write down a very accurate description if it’s not necessary or use hyperlinks if you think the details can be interesting for some customers. Remember about paragraphing the text and using crossheads, bullets, and different fonts’ styles – all together they will make the text easy to read and eye-friendly.
9) High Price = Good Description
Always remember that a high price requires a very good product description. The description is to explain and justify the price. It should be reasonably long and eye-friendly. Preparing the description concentrate on emphasizing advantages of the product or service and keywords that convince the visitor he/she has found the right thing.
10) “If it doesn’t sell, it isn’t creative.” David Ogilvy

Being creative do not forget about selling and persuading techniques that are essential for effective marketing writing. And for this reason it is worth to go through our old texts after some time and check how they can be improved.
