Are you ready to attract more buyers? Then be more specific.
If you’re offerings are too general, few people can get excited. By trying to appeal to everyone, you’re really not all that appealing to anyone.

to draw in the lunch crowd?
Inside, we had terrific cheeseburgers made of ground sirloin with incredible slabs of bacon and tasty waffle fries. Much more exciting than just “lunch.”
|“Lunch” hardly begins to describe it.|
