You get a lesson in copywriting.
Most often, both phrases are used in the context of a personal relationship but they have significance for our professional communications as well.
The other day, I was skimming a newsletter and had to laugh and appreciate a newsletter editor’s insight into this notion of mixing honey and how you say something.
Like most newsletters these days, it has a very US Today (snippets of info) layout. But, the center spread had a large, bold subtitle that immediately caught my eye…and had me reading the entire section word for word.
The subtitle – "For Achievers Only." Now, what discerning reader is going to skip over that section?
How could you use that same idea in your business? Do you dabble some honey on your copy?
