Now on to reach those 70-plus percent who need more info and more time to think about buying. Here's where you start to lay on sales pitch. Tell a short story about a typical customer who has problem your product or service can solve. Tell how problem gets worse, how problem can practically ruin their live or business.
Then you present your product or service as BIG SOLUTION. Tell why your product works. Give details, features, a few statistics that prove your points, and some comments from two or three satisfied customers.
Now come back to your story of customer whose life was almost destroyed by problem. Talk about what their life is like NOW that they have purchased your product or service.
Then bring home sale. Tell customer how to buy, where to find you, how to call you, and when they will get their stuff. If you can, include a satisfaction guarantee. If they don't like their purchase, you'll refund their money, do service over, whatever you can afford to do to make customers feel more secure about buying.
Finally, put a time limit on your offer. It's only available to first 50 customers, for 30 days, or while supplies last. Most of us are procrastinators by nature and need a time limit to motivate us to act. Your time limit makes this happen.
Do you recognize sales letter formula I've just laid out? Of course you do. You've seen thousands of TV commercials and print ads that use same technique.

It has been used by top marketers for decades because it works. Corey Rudl uses it in his legendary 25 page website letter and Jim Daniels uses it in his famous 52 page website letter. You can bet these guys make a VERY good living from their LONG letters.
