Web Copy

tone of voice and stylistic guidelines

All copy is to be produced in the first person voice of the actual person producing it. The style is unassuming, honest and fundamentally correct in any assertions made to the best available knowledge or standard at the time of writing. Opinion is to be stated as such opinion is not fact. Where possible evidence or a logical progressing accompanies assertions, even if the person writing is an authority on the subject.

Language must be accessible, avoiding jargon. Sentences must be complete and kept short and topic broken into paragraphs. Where possible supporting should be provided.Content must be useful to people who want to do sport, regardless of level or experience and anyone discovering the areas in which SwiftMo® operates.

One content piece per subject should exist and this reviewed and revised once per year. Content must be kept to the following lengths:

800 - 1600 word items -Cornerstone content:

  • about
  • race bike rentals
  • routes
  • training
  • regional descriptions

500 - 600 word items -Standard content:

  • Blog posts

150 - 300 word items -Micro content:

  • map item descriptions

>120 words -Shared content:

  • social media content

UK English is to be used throughout. A comma must not be used following or preceeding a conjunction.

Hyperbole is not to be used. Sarcasm is not to used. Rhetoric must be rational. We strive to be the absolute best and promote the best, hence these litterary devices are unecessary.

Brand values which can be found on the brans-values page are to be reflected in all the copy.

paragraph element
