Writing product or service descriptions for your business can make or break the sale – especially online. Portraying the color goes deeper than just simply black or white.

it’s important to find ways to evoke the concept of color without simply naming brands or paint color names or using the color on its own. White, black, green etc. are definitely colors but as stand-alone descriptors, they are blah and boring. In this series, I will provide you with a comprehensive list of color adjectives that will help you take your description from drab to fab and blah to beautiful.

Our first Use Your Words series is all about red!

Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.
