Step 3: Title and description

Picture of Title and description
Here we are setting up the most important part of the Instructable: the intro page. What happens here will decide just how many people look at your Instructable so make it great.

For the title:
  • Make the title as descriptive as you can with as few words as you can
  • Try saying it out loud and see if it describes your project
  • Even better, try saying it to someone else
For the description:
  • You have more room to explain what's going to be happening here, but I like to keep this short and to the point as well.
  • Convince readers that they want to read the whole Instructable
  • How would you tell a friend about your project in 30 seconds or less?
