Here's a fast... easy... "no-brainer" way, to make more money by improving selling power of your sales copy... "pulling" your prospects closer to you... and upping your credibility.
Many years ago, I was riding subway downtown to work one morning, and I overheard a woman saying she felt "naked" because she forgot to wear her earrings that day.
Since then, I've heard that expression used on other occasions, if someone's forgotten to wear their wedding band... their watch... or even their pantyhose.
Now of course, when you say you're feeling "naked", what you really mean, is... you feel "incomplete".
And whether you know it or not, you may be leaving your prospects feeling "incomplete" in your sales copy.
Here's why: Listen to each of these very familiar phrases, and tell me what they all have in common, O.K.?
Here you go:
"A B C"
"on your mark... get set... go" (in UK, that would be "ready... steady... go")
"first, second, third"
"3 blind mice"
"3 wise men"
"The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" O.K., that's enough.
You see what each of these expressions has in common, right?
They each contain a sequence of three items, stated back-to-back.
Why is this important to know, and how can you use this to improve your sales copy?
The answer is simple: Because of all these common references you've heard over-and-over again throughout your life, your brain's been programmed to accept and understand things, when they're given to you in "threes".
You just feel more "at ease" processing information that's given to you in blocks of "three".
So make sure to use this “power” of three... in your sales copy!
Because if you want to make some money using your sales copy, you must get your prospects feeling as relaxed and comfortable as a grizzly bear, all snuggled up and hibernating in his nice warm cave.
Think about it: Whenever someone starts giving you a list of things, once you hear second item on that list, don't you automatically anticipate, there's going to be a third?
Here's an example of what I mean: Let's say you own a hotel, and you're listing some of benefits of staying at your hotel, and you present them in bullets.
If you say this...
75 over-sized comfy rooms that each face ocean! You'll want to make sure you've got your video camera handy as you're unwinding on your private balcony watching daily sunset, listening to waves roll up against shore right outside your window! 3, 5-Star restaurants! And each one of them offers you a minimum of 27 tasty meals and 11 local desserts, all prepared fresh, daily. (Plus, you get our "If you don't like it -- you don't pay for it, guarantee!") If you stop here... and then you move on with some other copy... it somehow leaves you with that "incomplete" feeling we just talked about, right?
However, if you said this:
