It is extremely hard to expound on yourself, particularly when you have to keep it short. For this, think Twitter and attempt to compose this with 140 characters. It is difficult to do however attempt to do it in something like 2 to 3 compact sentences, most extreme.

5. Keep it Short – Remember that individuals’ capacities to focus are very short and that if the craftsman articulation is too long, excessively confused or ineffectively composed individuals will just not read it! Maintain a strategic distance from enormous, fancy and confounded words. It simply does not work. You are not attempting to awe anybody, you are endeavoring to convey to a wide group of onlookers what your craft is about.
