4 Simple Ways to Make Your Writing More Readable By Suzanne Richardson Getting your prospective customer to start reading your sales copy is your most important task as a marketer. But if your readers get turned off just by looking at it, you've lost them - and any potential sales - for good. One of the best - and easiest - ways to make your writing more readable is to add more white space. But Charlie Byrne recommends four other super-simple "tricks": 1. Use dashes. 2. Use bullets. 3. Use ellipses. 4. Occasionally bold and italicize key words and phrases. Solid blocks of text look boring. Worse, they look like work. Sprinkling your text with bullets, dashes, ellipses, and bold or italicized words breaks up the text and makes it look easy to read... which automatically makes it more inviting to your reader. This article would be very helpful I think. Good Luck

What great tips. Thank you for sharing this. I've heard white space is also one of the best ways to get your resume read as well, so it makes sense it would work in the case of a blog or presentation type web page. One of my new years goals is to start a new blog, and I will certainly use this information. Thanks again.

I dabble in web design Pat and you are correct. Big blocks of text are all the same and do look boring. Outlines, bullets, bold titles all draw to the info. Additionally placement of graphics entice reading some things first, like the sales point, or closing the deal line. There is also a study or two out there that tells where the eyes look first when falling upon a web page.
