How To Write Killer Sales Letters by John Colanzi
I'm sure you've seen those ads that grab your attention and have you ready to pull out your wallet or credit card. They are literally making you an offer you can't refuse.
Don't you wish your ads were that persuasive?

Writing to persuade is a skill that can be learned, like any other skill. It's just a matter of breaking down process into four simple steps.
Step # 1.
The first step in writing your killer sales letter is to identify your target market.
This seems simple enough, but how many marketers do it?
When reading some of ads I get in my inbox, I have to wonder.
I don't want to burst your bubble, but truth is, not everyone on planet is a prospect. Concentrate on those who are.
Before you begin your ad campaign identify your target audience.
Step # 2.
Once you've identified your target market determine what their major problems are.
* Do they need more money?
* Do they need to save time?
* Are they interested in improving their health?
Sit down and determine every problem that your prospects have and decide how your product or service can help solve their problems.
There are no shortage of problems, but there is a shortage of problem solvers. Start thinking in terms of becoming a problem solver and you'll always be in demand.
OK, you've identified your market, you've determined what problems they have, now you're ready for next step.
