Text Turnoffs

If your website content and copy don't heed your Big 3 religiously, they can repel visitors (The horror!).

To see more kinds of problematic copy/content — in fact, a comprehensive list plus excellent examples — we recommend Webdesigner Depot's brilliant article, "How to Spot and Avoid Web Copy That Kills Websites."

Your writer should be able to isolate these defilers in your existing text and avoid them in their own writing.
