Listen Now: 4 New Psychological Tricks To Get Your Work Noticed
Want people to pay attention to your work? Get creative.
Whether it be preparing your resume, writing a blog post, or giving a big speech, what you’re writing could make or break your career, get you noticed and get you hired. So how do you stand out from the rest?
According to Entrepreneur.com, there are four psychological tricks to make people read past the headline. For example, leverage scarcity and urgency. Phrases such as “last time ever,” “final,” and “your last chance” make people take action by activating the emotional part of your brain.
Next, get specific by using numbers or descriptive adjectives. This makes whatever you’re talking about seem more real to your audience. And if it feels real to them, they’re more likely to want to be part of it.
One of the more popular tactics is to drum up curiosity. Promise new ideas or new information, something they can learn that other people don’t know.
Finally, be clear and concise with your message. It doesn’t matter how exciting your information is if no one can understand it.
