            o  Grab their attention by being clear, concise and compelling

  • Make content easier to scan using Sub-Headlines and Lists

            o   Write short but clear headlines, sub-headlines and headers

            o   Clearly label topics and break text up into small paragraphs (30-50 words each)

            o   Use bulleted lists to organize content and features

  • Write for the Visit Orlando website visitor

            o   Speak to your visitors by using the word you as much as possible

            o   Minimize the use of I, we and us

            o   Don't need to end sentences in a bulleted list with a peried

  • Use Hyperlinks Effectively
