• Efficiency
How quickly can users perform tasks?

Exploring Conversion Rate Optimisation www.browsermedia.co.uk
Persuasion
• Logic
How easy is the navigation? Are images, text and Calls to Action displayed in a
sequential way which makes sense to the user?
• Emotion
Does your content speak to the users’ requirements? Is the text compelling?
Does it anticipate and alleviate their anxieties?
• Credibility
Is the text believable? Is the site true to the brand’s credentials? Do the tone
and images convey quality and credence?
Aristotle’s 3 Elements of Persuasion

How To Find the Right Copy to Supercharge
Site Performance
Exploring Conversion Rate Optimisation www.browsermedia.co.uk
Good content is an artform
• Be Clear & Concise
Scrap the jargon
Use friendly language
A little honesty goes a long way
• Be Descriptive
Use subheadings to forward-load
Contrasting hyperlinks work in the same way
• Offer Information In Chunks
Miller’s Magical Number 7
So how do we become artists?
Exploring Conversion Rate Optimisation www.browsermedia.co.uk
Good content is an artform
• Use Lists & Bullet Points
Short and scannable, lists are easy to digest
Bullets are concise, visually attractive and suggestive
• Consider Aesthetics
Legibility: Serif vs. Sans Serif fonts
The size and weight of a font will suggest information hierarchy
Left aligned text tends to be easiest to read online
• Enjoy Telling Your Story
Communicate personality and expertise
So how else do we become artists?
