How to write Killer Classified Ad Copy

Written by David Bell

I'll never forget what my accountant said five years ago when he sawrepparttar ad I wrote for my services: "How many scotches did you drink before you wrote this?" He was kidding aboutrepparttar 135330 scotch. But he just couldn't believe anyone in their right mind would write such a bold and outrageous ad for their own writing, consulting and speaking services, as I had. Well, I spent $300 on that ad -- $200 to run it in a local trade association directory, and $100 to have it reprinted as a flyer. The following year, that $300 ad turned into $12,341 in new business for me. And $12,341 was just a tiny fraction of my total business that year. Why did I make so much money myself while there were so many thousands of "starving writers" inrepparttar 135331 world? The answer may surprise you. You see, it's not because I'm a better writer. It's not my schooling. Not my resume. Not any talent I was born with. It's all because I learned how to write "killer copy." How do you write killer copy?
