Writing technique: "Selected exclusively for you..."

Let me share a technique I dedicate just to you: the writer.


Writing technique: Power words that make the reader feel

remember your favorite childhood book... What book is it? And imagine: you not only wrote, but also published your book. People read it, enjoy it, memorize it, remember it! Ah, wouldn't that be wonderful?

Ah, the Internet... It stands on three pillars: scams, pornography and advice on how to live.

Set a goal to, say, run for 30 days in a row? Only managed to run for 10 days? Sad that you didn't reach your goal?

Creativity is not marketing (So a developer needs a marketing friend)

It is related. Create and promote, create and persuade, create and sell… But creativity is not the same as marketing.

What if your customers seem mentally retarded?

You must have come across such people. Explaining to them that X or Y is literally impossible… Or that Z can easily be done by yourself and here's how… Or that M, L and P are not your area of work… Jthey don't like it!
