Do not try to be clever. You are not there to reinvent the wheel. The old adage that you should keep it simple, stupid, applies in many things in life and certainly when trying to write a powerful essay.

We all know the standard formula of introduction, main body and conclusion. This is a tried and tested formula. But if you want to go for something a little out of the box, a little out of left field, try tinkering a little with the basic formula. You don't have to go overboard but something which is different and surprising might give you a significant amount of power.

Anyone in advertising will take you that you win or lose the customer from the very beginning. You can never have a second shot at your first meeting. Get it just right.

Less is more applies to so many things in life. It certainly applies to essay writing. If you want to make your essay powerful, don't waffle. Learn how to cut and refine what you have written. The trimmer it is, the more powerful it will become.
