One thing all successful Internet marketers have in common is that they're good copywriters. If you want to have a profitable online business, you need to know how to write a copy that motivates people to buy your product... a copy that sells!
In this article, I'm going to reveal 3 important rules that you should follow to write persuasive copy. Put these tips into practice, and watch your sales start climbing almost immediately!
#1. Believe In Your Product
It doesn't matter how many books you've read about copywriting... your copy won't sell if you don't believe in your product. It's very important to believe your product will help your customers solve their problems and give them what they want.
You should believe that it's worth much more than they pay for it. What you think about your product and how much you believe in it is very important -- as much as success of your copy depends on it.
Let me give you an example...
Let's say you want to sell an ebook titled How to Become a Professional Writer in 90 Days. You've never read this ebook and You don't know if it's good and worth price. It's just an affiliate product that you've decided to sell to make money.
You create a website and write a sales letter to motivate people to buy it. You implement all tips and tricks you've heard about copywriting: a killer headline, short paragraphs, etc. Now you expect to make a lot of money. You wait and wait. But what happens is... nothing!
Do you know why?
Yes, because you didn't believe in product you wanted to sell. You didn't believe in what you said in your sales letter because you hadn't read ebook yourself and had no idea how it was.
If you don't completely believe in your product, reader will know this through every word of your copy. He understands that something is wrong and it makes him hesitant to buy from you.
After all, if you don't believe in your own product, then how are you going to make them believe?
#2. "What's In It For Me?"
"What's in it for me?"
These are questions people keep asking while reading your copy. All of us look for benefits in everything we do, so do your customers. They want to know how your product will solve their problems. Basically, they want to know "what's in it for them".
... And you should certainly answer this extremely important question.
Explain what problems they have right now and convince them that they should do something about them. Create a sense of urgency to solve problems. Then give them solution: your product!
Tell them how your product will save their valuable time and money, bring them more happiness, money, health and so on. Make them imagine how wonderful their life will be with your product. Make them excited, very excited!
I give you an example...
Let's say that you want to write a copy for a very effective sleeping pill. First, you need to find problems of your target market. What problems do people have who can't get a good, restful sleep?
