8 Tips Will Help You Immediately Grab the Average Person's Attention.
So you dedicated countless hours to your most recent blog post, and nobody bothered even to tweet it.
or share it on Facebook.
Or you recently pieced together over a dozen articles, and your feedback is nowhere to be found.
The average person's attention span has decreased consistently for so long that it is now harder than ever to capture a person's attention.
The following tips will help you immediately grab the average person's attention.
1. Completely erase the memories of writing essays in your honors English class and write as people
speak. This might present some difficulty at first but read it out loud. It should be relatively direct and
concise as opposed to odd or ambiguous.
2. Break up your writing. You have at one point or another read a simple message that managed to
engulf an entire page even though it was only 5 or 6 sentences. You certainly could see it, and that is

face for longer periods of time.
6. Caption your photos. You may find it hard to believe, but the photo caption is the second most-read
copy on a page. It is a good idea to use more than just a word or two simply because gathering a
person's interest within a nutshell is perhaps one of the hardest things to do when it comes to writing.
Feel free to use two or three lines.
7. Incorporate numbered lists and bullets. Eventually, everyone found out that the bullet points included
in a typical sales letter were being read more than the actual content of the letter, which is why bullet
points are now a requisite in virtually all sales letters.
8. Use links. Make sure to link to other articles you have published on your website (internal links) and
