Writing has come a very long way since the World Wide Webbecame the norm in reaching out to the mass market for whatever product orservice one may have to offer. Multi-media presentations have a clear advantagenow over the plain black-and-white, ink-on-paper news or magazine format. Thewebsite, as a result, has served to bring more business and awareness becauseof their versatile, in-the-face and prompt delivery of services.

For those who wish to go into onlineadvertising and marketing, here are a few principles to follow to make web contenteffective and interesting:

1.       Keepit brief and concise – In general, being direct, simple, clear and terse inone’s writing favors those who wish to keep interest on the website. With theavailable visual and audio tools to reinforce the message, words tend to get inthe way and must, therefore, be used sparingly and wisely. In cases where wordscannot be replaced by selfies or viral videos, more picturesque and activewords will help bring out the message just as effectively as most visualaids.     

2.       Attractiveappearance – With a little help from visualtechniques, such as animation, unique fonts and colorful layouting, yourcontent can convey an appearance of credibility and professionalism aseffective tools for attracting more hits. Nevertheless, it takes a consummateweb designer to determine which kind of appearance or motif works for aparticular business or product. This requires understanding not just the tenetsof aesthetics or artistic style but knowing the mind of the end-users. Mostcompanies or individuals dictate how they want their websites to appear basedon their goals and whims. However, considering the perspectives of theconsumers can help make your website hit the target more often than not.

3.       Promptinteraction – Anyone can be solicitous of one’s clients by providing a 24/7 customerservice, if necessary. However, providing a means where clients can makeinquiries or suggestions directly through automated customer service or avirtual do-it-yourself tool kit to resolve issues can become a way ofattracting visitors and keeping interest in your website.
