3. Nothing worse than wordiness – cut to the chase!
You know the type: they speak slowly and monotonously, giving a long, drawn-out intro to what they want to say.

Do you have a sales team that is tasked with creating leads and closing contracts? Maybe you have a strategy for increasing your presence on search engines and boosting sales through your website? Perhaps you send out email drip campaigns designed to re-engage leads and keep your brand at the forefront of potential customer’s minds?
