Long Copy vs. Short Copy

How discovering the optimal length of a webpage produced a 220% increase in conversion

The question of long copy versus short copy is not new, and there is no shortage of differing opinions.

  • Should webpage copy be as short as possible?
  • Should it be long?
  • Is there an optimal length to a webpage?

To answer these questions, Flint McGlaughlin, Managing Director, MECLABS, walked through a recent experiment from the MECLABS research laboratory in which a few strategic changes to copy length led to a 220% increase in conversion.

Flint also shared some key principles from these discoveries you can use as a framework to aid your copywriting optimization efforts.
