In marketing, as in Scrabble, some words are worth more than others. They’re the words with the power to convince and convert — the ones that drive marketers’ success in subject lines, landing pages and content titles. And with mobile readership increasingly shrinking the physical space in those areas, a single word can make a sizable difference.

Discover 26 (yes, one for each letter of the alphabet!) persuasive words and copy constructs that you can easily use tomorrow to increase your read and respond rates. Hear about the scientific studies and in-market research supporting each. And be ready to write more persuasive content.
