4 More Ways to Turbocharge Your Writing

Came across this excellent article on copywriting. And I thought I share this with you. Enjoy!

Sales copy can make or break your marketing campaign. That’s why it’s so important to ensure that it is as strong and persuasive as possible.

The first step, of course, is to get the first draft of the copy down on paper (or computer screen) as quickly as possible. I always tell copywriters not to worry about getting every word right. Just "let it all hang out."

Then, the real work begins: the editing. That’s when you transform your copy from decent to good - or even great. As copywriting expert Clayton Makepeace says, "The more compelling you make each section of your sales letter, the greater your response and average order will be."

In my last article for ETR - "4 Simple Ways to Turbocharge Your Writing" - I said that the best way to do the editing is to focus on one thing at a time. And I walked you through the first four phases of the process.

Long Sales Copy Don’t Work? Think Again.

You know, I have been before in quite a fair number of marketing discussions whereby the opposite party will frequently say, "Why bother writing a long sales copy?"

"Nobody will read it."

"It doesn’t work."

"Nobody is going to wade through the pages of words"

Is it really so?

Will interested buyers not even read it at all?

Here’s the truth - long sales copy has been around because - it works! It as simple as that.

I’m not saying long sales copy out-pull short ones ALL the time. But generally, it does.

Here’s a simple example to illustrate my point.

Nothing beats face to face selling where you can see the person, talk to him and address his concerns up front right? There is an inter personal connection you can forge more easily.

Now say you are going to sell a 50 dollar product to a prospect…how long will you take to convince him (assuming that you do)?

10 minutes? 15 minutes? Half an hour?

Okay…let just assume you are a pretty good salesman…and you take ONLY 5 minutes to convince your prospect to buy?
