Copywriting Nightmares: Episode #62 - the typo...

Typo on diplomas embarrasses Ohio principal
WESTLAKE, Ohio – Fri Jun 6, 3:55 AM ET (See Story Here)

A Cleveland-area principal says he's embarrassed his students got proof of their "educaiton" on their high school diplomas.

Westlake High School officials misspelled "education" on the diplomas distributed last weekend. It's been the subject of mockery on local radio.

Principal Timothy Freeman says he sent back the diplomas once to correct another error. When the diplomas came back, no one bothered to check things they thought were right the first time.

The publisher has reprinted the diplomas a second time and sent them to the 330 graduates.

Hey Militant Ginger,

Here's some help with your online copywriting needs. I've been struggling with developing my own online sales letters -- the copy for landing pages. Well I actually had

the copy out there, but not doing well on conversions.

If finally came across a copywriting analysis tool, called Glyphius. I has improved my conversions tremendously.

It allows you to analyze you copy line by line. Then you can make adjustments to see if the change improves your

score. I've just started using it and my conversions are up from 1.1% to 2. 75% in the first week. Check it out if

you wish...
