If you want to make your sales copy better, you need to put forth some real effort and make sure that each of the individual portions of your sales copy are balanced and compliment each other. The process is far more involved than picking a couple of things you don’t like and tweaking them. Keep reading to learn a few things that you can do to start making your copy even better.
Don’t Make a Promise You Can’t Keep: The fact is, when someone reads your copy, they expect to get something out of it. Try to remember that people are going to read your sales reason for specific reasons. Your headline grabs the attention of your prospects and the rest of your copy is supposed to support the things you write in your headlines. Your headline is vital because it is what gets the reader interested in your offer and what you have to say about it. If you can’t get your copy to keep up with the headlines you’ve created what do you think is going to happen? Your sales prospect is just going to feel like you’ve deceived him (or her) and is going to lose interest in the actual offer that you’re offering. You won’t get more sales if your headline makes crazy and outlandish claims; being honest and transparent in your copy takes care of that. Do everything you can to ensure that the end of your sales copy is just as fun and awesome as the beginning and the only way to do that is to be as straightforward as possible without using hype as a crutch.
Write for People: There’s all sorts of talk throughout the SEO world about how best to include targeted keywords in your sales copy. It is a good idea to include some targeted keywords in your text but don’t forget that it is your actual readers and not the search engines that take priority. Take a sensible approach with this because your readers are not stupid; they want something that is interesting to read. Let’s face it, no matter how many keywords you try to stuff into your copy, if the people aren’t going to read it, it’s not worth it. It is important to focus first on perfecting your writing not your keywords. Good writing helps your target audience know what you want and it helps you make use of the best marketing method out there: word of mouth. The more energy you put into your copy’s quality the more people will be convinced of your quality as well.
Fear of Loss: Many direct marketers employ the “fear of loss” factor in their copy to help them get faster sales in shorter time periods.
By making your potential clients fear loss you help them believe that they only have a short amount of time to decide whether or not to buy from you and this helps them click “buy” faster. Nobody wants to miss out on a great offer or deal so adding a sense of urgency to your copy can help you seem even more irresistible to potential buyers and clients. To sum up, in this article we can see just what it takes to make sales copy better and take your business to the next level.
