The content of your website: Use summaries where possible


People love lists – when they are not too long.
Numbered summaries are ideal for lists that are complete and have to be followed in a particular order, f.i. checklists.


Summaries using bullets are also effective.

  • Start with the longest item, or – even better, make the most important piece of information a bit longer and put it first.
  • The first item is the most important one.
  • Summaries are easy to scan.
  • Summaries that are too long are counterproductive, 3 to 5 items are ideal.
  • 7 items is risky, rather keep it short.
