Written by David Masachke

This is whererepparttar real meat of e-marketing begins. You have a list of hungry subscribers at your fingertips and now you need to convert them into customers. You want to send themrepparttar 108018 best offer possible, presented inrepparttar 108019 best possible light.

In order to accomplish this, you need to create effective sales copy.

Good copy includes many elements: voice and style, proper grammar, spelling and punctuation, emphasis on benefits and much more. Let's talk a bit about each of these.


Your messages should sound professional without sounding "stuffy'.

You need to find your unique voice to connect with your subscribers. Pretend that you are sitting acrossrepparttar 108020 table from a friend and write as if you were speaking to them (leaving out, of course, things like swear words or references to your personal life).

You should also keep close watch over pronoun usage. Talk directly torepparttar 108021 subscriber and avoid usingrepparttar 108022 word "I" as much as possible. Be personable, but not too personal.

English 101

We all make mistakes in our writing at times. Your subscribers will probably forgive you for a few gaffes. However, you don't want to send out horribly written messages. Always run your copy through a spell-checker. Brush up on your grammar and punctuation skills if you've gotten rusty.

Focus on Benefits

Never place your focus on sellingrepparttar 108023 product or its features alone. People want to know whatrepparttar 108024 product can do for them. For example: will it save them time? Will it save them money? Will it bring more love into their life?

The mind's always on a mission. Always. When faced with putting together a magazine-type product, a sales promotion concept, a new hype of some sort. It'srepparttar 108019 mind, that comes up with everything.

When brainstorming, think ofrepparttar 108020 stutterer. At all cost, do NOT work on losingrepparttar 108021 stutter if you wanna speak. It's only obstructing and keeping you fromrepparttar 108022 ideas labeled 'good' inrepparttar 108023 recesses you're trying to access.
