Get rid of complex language and jargon to engage more

customers - Web3 included - MAF286

This week let’s talk about why we must get rid of complex language, jargon, gobbledygook and the passive voice if we want to engage more customers.

And I mean in all industries with a particular nod towards the emerging Web3 space.

It’s just me and the mic and this is episode 286 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

We chat about:

  • Why industry language and jargon is like a foreign language
  • Is Web3babble the most impenetrable and alienating jargon yet?
  • Why is language in marketing so important?
  • Taking a red pen to jargon and passive language
  • The three rules of simple and engaging marketing
