As a result, instead of advertising an offer that probably would have flopped, I ended up selling several pieces of software that week and got myself a nice check in mail.
3. Spread The Word.
Get an ad into your own e-zine, rotate that ad for a few issues and see how it does, and then when you've got a winning responsive ad, try some other e-zines that would be a good match for product that you're advertising.
Here's one that really works well for me. Send out a solo mailing to your opt-in ezine list.
There are two key elements as to why this works so well. If you've been building a good subscriber list, they're more inclined to listen to what you have to say than some stranger that they run across somewhere on web. For me there is an additional factor here. My list tends to be more receptive to solo ads because I don't send them a lot of solo mailings in first place. So, they're less inclined to say "Oh no not another one - Delete!"
The second reason, and this is perhaps more important one - I personalize it. This doesn't mean that I address everyone by their name, (although that would really helpful but my list server is kind of behind times :-) ). What I mean, is that e-mail reads less of an ad and is more conversational in tone. "Advertorial" is correct term for this type of an ad I believe.
It comes off far more believable than most of ads out there. Instead of pushing against a brick wall and saying "Here's a big long ad - read it and buy what I'm flogging", I'm dropping in for a friendly chat with a neat suggestion or answer to your problem, want, or need. It works great!
