Being grammatically correct doesn’t persuade people. Clear, compelling copy does.

 

Copywriting isn’t essay writing. Sometimes, being grammatically incorrect is more persuasive. Sometimes, splitting a paragraph into separate lines is better for readability. Sometimes, what’s wrong is actually right. There’s a difference between intentional and unintentional deviations from the rules.[/mk_fancy_title][mk_fancy_title color=”#000000″ size=”20″ font_weight=”300″ font_style=”normal” txt_transform=”none” margin_top=”15″ margin_bottom=”0″ font_family=”Muli” font_type=”google”]Cramp your style.
