The Secret Behind Million-Dollar Ads

Written by David Garfinkel

Continued from page 1

The brutal reality of advertising: An ad with a good headline, and even mediocre copy, will get you a response and generate sales. But with a poor headline, evenrepparttar most brilliant copy will get you little or no response. Why? Because without a good headline to get their attention, most people won't read any further.

The good news is, once you have identified a good headline that works in one industry or market, you can adapt it (like we did withrepparttar 101078 Dale Carnegie headline, above) for your own business. Great headlines work as subject lines in emails, titles on Web pages, and of course as headlines in print ads and sales letters. Great headlines will literally transform your sales.

How does this work in today's economy?

Recently a client asked me to help him introduce a new service to Internet Service Providers. (Note: To understand what you are about to read, you should know that ISPs call their suppliers "backbone providers.") I wrote a direct mail letter and my client sent it out to ISPs. Because my client was revealing new information his prospects hadn't heard before, we usedrepparttar 101079 following "teaser headline" onrepparttar 101080 front ofrepparttar 101081 envelope:

What Your Backbone Provider Isn't Telling You

Was this an entirely original headline? No. I had seen a similar "teaser headline" on a successful mailing to promote an investment newsletter:

What Your Broker Isn't Telling You About High-Tech Stocks

So I merely identifiedrepparttar 101082 "secret code" inrepparttar 101083 original winning headline, and applied it to my client's market, ISPs.

The response torepparttar 101084 mailing was overwhelming! Nearly 10% ofrepparttar 101085 entire ISP industry responded to our letter -- and my client has added eight figures of new annual revenues as a result ofrepparttar 101086 business that developed.

I'm telling you this not to brag, but to point outrepparttar 101087 awesome power of good headlines. While many people spend hours and hours trying to come up with "the perfect headline" for their ads, there is an easier way. Find proven headlines that already work for another business in another industry, and adapt them to your business.

Then prepare for a flood of new customers!
