5 Sales Letter Blunders That LOSE the Sale

Written by Harmony Major

Continued from page 1

Massive blocks of text in sales copy are just not cool.

Reading from a computer screen is already much more strenuous to most people than reading offline documents, so make your sales page easy onrepparttar eyes by using paragraphs that are no longer than 4-6 sentences each.

BLOOPER #4: "Is it a person, place, or thing, Pat?"

If your visitors don't know what you're selling, they won't be very compelled to buy it -- even if it ISrepparttar 127461 greatest widget inrepparttar 127462 history of widgethood. After all, if they don't KNOW it's a widget, why would they want it?

Let me give you an example.

The website of one "multi-millionaire" is selling a mystery item designed to tell you how to make millions. Throughout their sales letter, they give vague "details" of their own personal plight to making millions with "just a little work" by using their formula.

Even more interestingly, this person doesn't offer a money-back guarantee. Instead, they offer to "give you a formula that works." (In short, all they "guarantee" is that you'll getrepparttar 127463 product you're paying for --repparttar 127464 "secret" of how they made their millions. Oh joy!)

If it's such an effective formula, why not describe it? And more importantly, why not offer a money-back guarantee? Did I mention that a very minute percentage of customers ever take advantage of such a guarantee?

Umm ... I'm not buying it. Either figuratively OR literally.

BLOOPER #5: "If you're going to sell it, SELL it!"

In 99% of sales letters I've seen, it's quite obvious thatrepparttar 127465 writer is intending to sell me something. Not to say that this is BAD at all, because hey -- we all gotta eat. However, if I'm going to buy something, I'll need to knowrepparttar 127466 price.

Case in point, I've seen sales letters deliver a huge pitch about their product, but have no price for it listed anywhere onrepparttar 127467 page. Click torepparttar 127468 order page, and stillrepparttar 127469 same deal. Fill out a form, advance torepparttar 127470 next screen, and still no go. Get torepparttar 127471 billing information page, and only THEN do you seerepparttar 127472 price ofrepparttar 127473 product.

Why was it such a secret?

If your product is worthrepparttar 127474 price, don't hide it. Trust me. In doing so you'll make your prospects think that you hid it because your product is overpriced -- and they'll leave without buying.

Final Words...

So -- how does YOUR sales letter measure up? If you're currently committing any ofrepparttar 127475 five deadly sales copy sins above, it's not to late to repent and reform.

Remember, you could be driving hundreds of hot prospects away with each one ofrepparttar 127476 flubs above. Takerepparttar 127477 opportunity now to fix your sales copy before you forget, and start increasing your hits to sales ratio immediately. I'm rooting for you!
