Many people don't write a book because they doubt it will sell well enough for all effort, it may not be significant enough, it will take too long, cost too much money, and they really aren't writers. One, by one, your sales letter addresses their concerns and shows these potential buyers how they can become an excellent author and make their books more salable, while building their profits.
4. Sprinkle Testimonials Throughout your Sales Letter.
Potential buyers who visit your site or another one that sells your products are more pulled to buy when they think other people have already. If other people are happy with your product or service, they will be too.
Include testimonials from experts in your field, celebrities, man/woman on street, and other people who have profited from your advice. Learn how to approach influential contacts through email friendly notes and requests. Ask them to look at and give their opinion on your table of contents, one chapter, and your back cover or sales letter information
Make it easy to buy. Add a few sample phrases and benefits they can use to save these busy people time.They want to help, but consider it's difficult to create testimonials, or it will take them away from their priorities.
Give as you receive. Give that person something of value. Study their Web site or read their ezine, and send them a short helpful tip or joke.
5. Offer your potential clients three or four chances to buy..
They may have already decided to buy before coming to your sales letter, so offer a "Click Here," "Buy Now" near top of letter. Offer more buying opportunities along way after a list of benefits, what's in this book (features),and testimonials.
6. End your Sales Letter with your 100% Money-Back Guarantee.
When you offer an iron-clad guarantee, people see your book as so valuable that you put yourself on line for it. They will be more likely to buy and be satisfied with their purchase.
"This product comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee. Read book cover to cover, and if strategies don't work for you within 60 days, we'll cheerfully refund your money, and you can keep product too!"
7. Make your Sales Letter Credible.
To boost sales, authors need to add free bonus reports related to their book. Make sure your free bonus reports do not cost more than price of your product. Would you believe this offer "order this for $49 now and receive 4 special bonus reports worth $395?"
8. Share downside of your book to create empathy.
For example, "this ebook won't write book for you, or even get it published, but it will show you steps and resources to write compelling copy, finish fully and sell well."
9. Include your expert credentials
"I spent 6 months researching this book and 3 months writing it. My background includes 20 years coaching, presenting 70 writing seminars a year, and 27 published clients since 1999."
Without a sales letter to guide your potential buyers on your Web site, you leave them bored, uninspired, without enough information to make that decision to buy. Your Web site and ezine must entertain, inform, and give enough benefits to convince your readers to order your book.
For all email promotion campaigns, without a short or long sales letter for each product, your unique, useful and inspiring information will not get read, people won't know you as expert, and you won't make sales you want.
