The Lede: In an instant your audience decides whether to stay or go from your website. The goal is to keep them there so that you have the opportunity to show them that you’re the best option to solve their challenges.
The Decisions: We focus on getting the following affirmatives:
This doesn’t all have to be done in the millisecond that they first come to the page, but they need to stay on the page long enough to decide that they need what you offer. To get them to stay, they have to feel understood.
The What: Your audience must immediately recognize that you understand them.
Your audience wants to feel that you understand their challenges and that you can support their journey to solve them. They want empathy.
The How: Show your audience that you understand and empathize with them:
Your audience wants to solve their challenges with trustworthy guidance.
They want to be the hero by making the correct decision in solving their challenges.
They feel this when it was their idea to take your guidance.
The Nuance: It should be that they decided to work with you, and not that you convinced them.
