Re: Ok my first attempt. Yes you can rip into it.

It looks ok but it could use more persuasion. People like stories, maybe you could add a story about how you created the software so people can relate to it better,

Isn't this what copywriters do every day? :mrgreen:

Re: Headline Lengths

I agree that short headlines are easier to read. But then I look at some of John Carltons headlines and some of them are almost as long as a paragraph. His one legged golfer ad had a headline that's 29 words long.
