I am constantly amazed by modern ‘media’ and the length they’ll go through to attract reader attention. Is it under-handed or necessary in a fast-paced, information-rich world of communication?
The art of copywriting is essential in today’s world.
Here’s my deconstruction of a modern click thanks to the HuffPost. While I can’t confirm the exact thought process, I do think I subliminally read the subject header as “New Nook a Tablet Killer”. There’s enough research out there to suggest we scan through volumes of information far more often than we should and unfortunately, it is a sad by-product of modern life. But, if you consider the volume of information I do pile through on any given day, whatever the exact key triggers were, they succeeded in making me read the article: GOOD for HuffPost and GOOD for Nook.
Pay close attention to the headline as you go through the steps.
