Lots of book learnin’ happenin’ at esyringe®. I’ve read so much about SEO and landing pages this week, it’s so ‘diculous, it’s ridiculous (does that joke work in writing? I know it’s a funny pun when spoken – oh well, hopefully you’ve figured it out).

It’s interesting writing for an audience that has a thousand messages coming at them everyday. No “marketese” (i.e., marketing fluff) is going to get them to stick around if they can’t learn about your product quickly and efficiently.
