Have you ever wondered how your copy sounds to your prospects when they're reading it?
If you have, here's a little-known trick to making your copy sound as clear as a bell, and feel as comforting as a warm fireplace in winter.
The very best way to figure out how your copy sounds to your prospects, is NOT to read it, but to read it out loud. And actually, if you can have someone read it to you, preferably a child, that's even better.
When I first started writing copy, my 2 sons were in elementary and middle school. They were excited about my new career and were more than happy to read back my copy out loud to me.
Fortunately, my career progressed pretty rapidly, and it wasn't long before I was writing 13-page long-form sales letters.
Well, needless to say (and understandably so), my kids weren't as excited about reading their dad's 17-page "FREE Reports" and long-form sales letters, as they were about reading half-page newspaper display ads.
But luckily, I found a little tool that comes in handy, exactly for situations like this.
And, price is right -- it won't even cost you a penny!
There's a software company out there called Read Please (www.readplease.com), located in Ontario, Canada, that's come up with perfect tool for writers.
Not surprisingly, program is also called "Read Please" and here's what it does: You copy text from your document and paste it into Read Please program.
Then, in any one of a number of different voices, program reads back your text out loud over your computer's speakers, word-for-word.
