Yep, you can use power words in your button copy too, even if you only have a few words you can fit in there. Now take a look at the buttons on your site.
Do you see any opportunities to spruce them up with a power word? When you guest post for another blog, your author bio has the difficult job of making readers want to know more about you so they click through to your site. That means your author bio needs to spark attention and interest. And you usually only get three sentences, so you need to carefully consider the words you use.
It shows her uniqueness and makes her stand out from other copywriters. She opens strong immediately by mentioning her guides are insanely useful. And just the name of her report alone is full of power words: All the biggest youtube channels do this. They understand that most of their views will come from their subscribers finding them in their feed, and from people finding them in the sidebar of other videos.
See what I did there? Go to top Go Ahead and Tell Me. Yes, this is an enormous list, but so many power words are available, nobody can possibly catch them all on the first pass. What are some other words that seem to have that extra little spark of emotion inside them? Eventually, I hope to have over 1, words here, separated and organized by category, making this the definitive resource for power words on the web.
I took a lot of notes from it! Yup another post that makes your stomach churns and your mind inspired and enriched… Thank you your awesomeness…. I have to say, I find that most self-help postings are statements of the glaringly obvious at best, and utter nonsense at worst. But this is really, really good. Thanks for the list, Jon. It definitely gives me some food for thought… but I will tell you that after glancing through the list, it seems like a lot of the words are negative.
The fear section is the largest one, and yes, those are definitely negative. Copy, pasted and saved in my swipe file. Thanks Jon for making life easier for the rest of us.
Julie, fear is the most powerful emotion and is so instilled in our collective conscious and we obviously lust after it because the news media keeps peddling fear every night. I bet Jon that if you punched every one of those words into a thesaurus you will reach your word goal very quickly. You know, I think I will do just that. Or to put it more cynically, Jon, fear sell lots of stuff.
Thanks for the list. Paradoxically, sentences constructed negatively are a turn-off. Great list Jon, thank you. Thanks for the great information! I love the list but some of the words also make you sound sleazy. And secrets has been done to death. A power words is defined by its ability to make you feel.
If the forbidden words are making you feel icky, that just proves their power. People continue using it because it works. This is a great list! Thanks so much for a great, extended list of power words which I will dutifully and studiously commit to memory and learn how to use.
I even went back to read your article and noticed the power words used in it. Amandah, Thanks for sharing the list of words below!
Some good ones in there. And Jon, thank you for a great post. Like many here, I have copied both lists into Evernote. That one can work under the right circumstances. Speaking of myself, even though I might use such words when I speak to someone, I am careful to use words that even a 5th grade student would understand or based on the kind of readers I get over at my blog.
So, I do need to keep the words very simple and easy to understand. This is for the purpose of blogging, though there are always exceptions. I wonder if others feel the same way about using such words in their blog posts, even though I admit they are awesome power words, which we do use otherwise. Thanks for sharing these with us. So many good words now to learn how to put the story together.
Thanks Jon once again for sharing. Since you asked us for our contributions, here are a few suggestions that might make your list. My apologies in advance if you already mentioned them:. Petrified a great word, and I want to add more to my list, because I forgot to add them at my post on the bottom and again, sorry for any accidental repeats:. This list is awesome! I know I could use more for sure. I use your headline hacks and they are amazing. I like the words suggested in the comments and will keep coming back for more!
More great advice from the inimitable Jon Morrow! I appreciate the way you have expanded our vocabularies with this post! At the same time, I will proceed with caution. The main takeaway for me is about enriching my vocabulary.
Thanks for the kick in the right place! If you think about it, pretty much all writers manipulate the emotions of their readers. The key is doing it in a way your readers like and enjoy. That takes careful study and a lot of thought. Combination of lust and forbidden fruit there. Thanks for the inspiration, Sophie! See what you started??!!!
I love this post. It along with your 52 Headline Hacks have given me a boatload of ideas for my content. Your Royal Awesomeness — thank you for the awesome resource. I am super excited to get your mind-blowing list of wondrous power words.
The post was an eye opener and such a bargain considering all you want in return is an endorsed share. Did I over do what I learned from your post? Are their statues and other symbols for worshiping in your online store.
I need many to adorn my home and to spread across the land to start a Morrow cult. No need for purple Kool-Aid, just meditations where we read your posts and reach higher states of writing consciousness and eventually writing nirvana. The only problem is how to keep this resource handy? Gloomy, shadowy, glittering, sparkling, creepy, rotten, moldy, spicy, gritty, drab, roaring, squeaky.
The only thing missing is a group of words that create FUD Fear, uncertainty and doubt. Actually I was thinking of writing one along the same lines. There is so much content out there we have to grab the readers attention. Graphic, descriptive phrasing is a way to take them by the throat and force feed them what they need. Or am I, in my imbecility, losing, missing, dropping, overlooking something here?
I love you truly, Jon. But please clarify… and tell us, what in this post is truly new? A list of powerful words that give much more impression when you used it. Thanks John for sharing. Dear Jon, Thank you very much for your lists of powerful words.
You are very kind to share them with us, your readers. Great list of words Jon. A good resource to get the creative juices flowing in telling a story and getting a point across. A generous post and resource thank you Jon. The post is an explanation for why a random post I did a long while back has always been more popular on view count than others — Confessions of A Recovering Adrenaline Junkie.
As a therapist my work is all about power words. Thinking about recent sessions these come to mind: Now if I can just hold on to them as move from my arm chair to my desk and write! Thanks Jon, I am going to love putting these words into use. I think I will even use the ones others have listed. Funny about the timing of this post. I have a short memory, so if some of these I present to you are already lists above, I apologize in advance.
I use your headline hacks PDF all the time. In fact, I have officially made it is mandatory reading for all new members of my team. Now the lists in these posts are the perfect supplement to help me and my team take our copy-writing to the next level. I do know that the power words can make a big difference. Now have it printed and good to go with more of your great help from you. Glad my parents, in what I presume was a back-to-the-future move ahead of its time, got hold of your advice just in time for me … lol.
The truth is Jon pretty much came up with that one, with his blogging class I took. It sure is paying off for me. What can i say, Jon is good with the words. Thanks again and hope you have a great day or evening. Your headings are irresistible! I challenge the young and inexperienced to stay away…lol! Jon, a great post! Tony Robbins also refers to power words. I never thought of it that way before. Maybe having worked in the corporate world, authentic seems more audacious to me. Now, I am going to have to change the tagline for my site.
I love the concept of juxtaposition and confluence. Other words I love are those that convey a transitory magical feeling — elusive, evanescent, fleeting.
These are delightful would that be a power word? I have a few to add if I may: Re the staggering importance of power words.
Now your evil list will quadruple the experience, no doubt about it. Hence my recession-proof thanks. But I see Your Gifted Awesomeness by now is getting over-powered or disgustingly bored — likely both. So let me hurriedly take quick leave … by crookedly adding the only other intelligent list of power words in my trusted hands is from Tony Robbins [Unleash the Giant Within]. He lists words in two columns: Cannot reproduce it here — whoppingly true — because I only have it as a guaranteed jpg file.
But if anyone wants the bonanza of a copy, just holler and make sure it includes your prized email, and a power word or two: Tony Robbins first gave me insight into the power of this word. Years later, Brian Clark reminded me. This is a really great list. I have been working on improving my writing and this should really help.
Thank you for posting this. What an impressive and powerful list of perfectly categorized word groups! Like all those before me, I copied this into a word doc including most of the comment lists for even more reference material!
Thanks for not including curse words. It might work, but it will probably just make someone really angry at you for using it. Jon, I love your article and your list of power words is incredible. I am sure I will be using it all the time.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. Everything we do in life relates to our emotions. What this list of words does is help us to communicate better as writers and capture those emotions from our readers.
I offer my sincere appreciation for this list and will be sure to keep it in a safe place along with sharing this great article.
I am a great believer in power words and write and rewrite constantly before posting. Thanks for your list. I will add to mine. I worry about this type of guide as it lacks so much that is fundamental to the craft of good writing, such as pace, tempo and punctuation. If painting were a metaphor, it would say: Use the colour red. I see so many bloggers applying similar rules while ignoring the power of developing their own style and voice.
It is the only way to truly stand out because too many bloggers are taking attention grabbing guides like this to heart. Go and read any newspaper and then go read their blog.
I was surfing a writers website and looked at their guest post submission guidelines. It asked for a degree in communications and posts must be written in AP style. In fact, these are some of the most valued qualities at top companies such as Google and Apple. While the above can help you impress employers with adjectives, you should also bear the following in mind:. The adjectives used in the job description itself can provide you with the guidance you need.
You could go through the effort to find appropriate synonyms, but really, the best way to go is to use the words in the job description. Sometimes people can go overboard on their adjectives in a resume and employers can get lost in a sea of descriptions.
Rather than litter your resume with superfluous adjectives, make sure you apply them effectively by using this method. Use adjectives to describe a project you completed or a skill you possess, an action you executed and the result it produced. Though the job market is highly competitive these days, you can make your resume stand out.
It can even shape an entire piece of writing, making it feel serious, funny, dramatic, or upsetting. Without the adjectives in these examples, we wouldn't know if this was going to be a story about sadness or hope:. Emotions and feelings are very similar. In fact, the definition of feeling is to have an emotion.
The only difference is that emotions tend to refer to that which isn't tangible, while feelings are something you can kind of put your finger on. But, that's really splitting hairs. Let's take a closer look. Emotions can't be easily seen. We can guess that someone is either sad or happy but emotions aren't always expressed. Rather, it's something we sense:. Often, feelings are something we can more visibly see or experience. Whether someone's sad, mad, happy, or ecstatic, feelings tend to house our emotions, amplifying a particular situation.
It can be difficult to find just the right word to describe a tone or feeling being experienced by someone. You never want to come across sounding trite , or use an adjective that's too weak to express the gravity of a particular situation. It's a bit like building your vocabulary.
Adjectives — descriptive words that modify nouns — often come under fire for their cluttering quality, but often it’s quality, not quantity, that is the issue. Plenty of tired adjectives are available to spoil a good sentence, but when you find just the right word for the job, enrichment.
