200 Words That Make Money

Written by  February 10, 2008

Since the initial writing of my post 14 Words That Lose Money, I’ve had a number of requests for a post on words that make money.

So, here is a list of 200 Words that make money. I’ve put in bold those words that you might want to consider using in various areas of your e-commerce store to persuade buyers (although product descriptions could also benefit from many of the others as well.)

    Interesting, thanks! But how could you know they make money?

    Glad you liked them. :)

    To answer your question, these are terms that have been tested and documented for many, many, many years both online and offline by marketing experts.

    You’ll find them in many books as well that talk about using the proper copy writing techniques.

    Think of it as a “written code” that has been around for years. Give ‘em a try sometime. I think you’ll like the results. :)

    Awesome collection of words! As a veteran internet marketer, I KNOW they make money. What you and I know that most don’t is the use of superlatives will ALWAYS increase conversions.
    I will be posting, if you have no objection of course, your collection on our Web Estate Development Blog over the weekend with the Title “201 Money Makers – in English” I will have to add my most favorite word: Optimized You’ll definitely be mentioned with a link :)
    Keep up the great work and awesome site BTW.

    Hi Eric,

    This is a really great and useful post (I liked your list of 14 words that lose money as well BTW).

    I wanted to give you a heads-up that I referred to your list in a post I wrote today stressing the importance of narration and captions in eCommerce videos: http://blog.treepodia.com/2010/02/do-you-know-the-money-making-words-you-should-be-using-in-your-videos

    All the best,
    Mike
