Bad Copywriting Is A Waste Of My Time

In my surfing tonight I came across a site with some seriously bad buzz-word copywriting. This has been on my mind lately, so I’d thought I’d share this. From their site main feature area…

Let me rewrite that for you into what that content translated to in my brain.

365 Media provides blah, blah, blah-blah, blahblah, blah. Blah, blahblah, blah blah, blah! Our mission is to completely confuse the crap out of you with this horrible content that makes most people leave our site instantly by wasting their time instead of just saying simply what we do and how we can solve your problems. Wow, you’re still here?

Here’s a tip guys. Get rid of all the buzz-words. If you sell software, say “We sell software”. If you sell consulting, say “We sell consulting”. If your software solves problems, tell me what problems it can solve for me. It’s not about you, it’s about me, the customer!

Just keep it simple, say what you do and quit wasting my time. Help me. I could care less what you do. How can you help ME!

By the way, the rest of the content on that page is just as bad. Someone get the copyblogger in there please?
