Content Structure Guidelines
This is the guidelines that all SiteSpot writers must stick to. It creates text in a format that our designers can then easily build out into a useable and readable website.
Rule 1: Dot Points & Headings
Text that is broken down into nested dot with headings where necessary makes so much sense to a web designer... Take these examples, using headings and nested dot points, we're able to simply convey information hierarchy to the design team to build out something cool and easy to use.
- Paragraphs should be 5 sentences max
- Sentences shouldn't be too long
- Include links to images if necessary

Rule 2: Respect the reader
We never want to talk down or belittle our customer. Using fear-based copy needs to be a final resort only. Write to the readers as you are writing to a colleague or friend - No BS, to the point, motivational and not preachy.
We want to show that we are the reliable, smart and trustworthy. Not looking for any dollar we can find.
Varying levels of casual is absolutely expected to match the client and business - but always being respectful of the reader and their time.
Rule 3: Solution based copy
Discuss the problem, discuss the solution, explain how we are a great option for you to implement the solution.
Aside from about us pages or any similar - content should be at least 70% 2nd person, and the rest first and third person.
