Listed below are a list of words to avoid I have been given permission to share. Usually words like these will have a negative connotation attached to them. For example, learning implies a lot of effort, but “unearthing” implies little to no effort.

Replace negative words in your copy with the alternative power words below…

Teach…
demonstrate, display, reveal, disclose, divulge, present, prove, uncover, meet the eye, parade, flaunt, direct your attention to, lead you through, confirm, expose, broadcast, open the door,

Pay/Cost…
ante up, take advantage of, invest, cover, contribute, chip in, furnish, provide, supply, goes for, initiation fee, access fee, requires a small sum, total amount, valued at, available for, offered at, worth

Learn…

Avoid words like these in your copy and you will turn it into an engaging read rather than something one wants to skip over entirely! Now get to writing!
