Sure-Fire Copywriting Tips

Written by Angela Wu

As you know, good sales copy is critical to your success online. Although it's not something that you can learn overnight, here are a few pointers to increase your response rates ...

__1. Focus on benefits, not on features.

For example,repparttar specialty pet bed you're selling might have a durable polar fleece lining. That's a feature. The benefit is that it will keep your pet warm, snuggly, and happy on cold nights. Another benefit would be that it saves you money because it can withstand considerable wear & tear from your bouncy pet.

__2. Focus on your customer - not yourself.

Who can resist a conversation about themselves? ;-) Prospective customers want to hear about how your product is going to help or benefit them personally.

__3. Use emotionally-charged action verbs where appropriate.

Strong words that evoke images and emotions are great at getting a prospect to respond to your ad. Words like "smash" are examples of action verbs.

__4. Be ruthless - edit out all unnecessary text.

You want a tightly-focused sales letter that leads your prospect to complete one action. That could be signing up for your newsletter, filling out a form, or ordering a product. Don't try to sell everything within your sales letter; concentrate on getting your prospect to do just *one* thing.
