Get More Sales With The Right Copy

If you want to improve your sales, or get sales at all, then there are some simple steps that you can take, to take your copy to the next level, and to make sure that you are creating the type of copy that motivates people to buy your products and services. All you have to do, is work on the presentation. There are some simple, yet effective steps that the copywriters use, in order to ensure that people respond to their sales copy.

First, you need to present and state the problem. There has to be a problem, because otherwise, people won’t seek out your web page! So, when you state the obvious problem, you capture attention.

Next, you need to present sympathy, and empathy. Let the readers know that you understand what they are dealing with, and that you feel their pain, so to speak. This is important, because in order to respond to what you are saying, people need to know and feel that you understand their dilemma, and the problems and pain that their issues are causing them. Having said this, you never want to come across as condescending or condemning.

Show that you are on the same wavelength as them. Then, they will become more open-minded to you, and they will begin to trust in what you are saying.

Keep in mind that when you writing sales copy, is that you have to write crisp, short sentences. People lose interest very quickly. The more efficient that you present yourself, the better.

So, write in a style that is crisp, to the point, and with lots of short paragraphs. This allows the reader to digest what you have to say better, without feeling overwhelmed, or bored.

Try using headlines, and sub-headlines. Bullet points work well also. They highlight specific points, and they break up the length of your copy.

Next, create what is known in sales as a call to action. Do so in a way that isn’t cliche. For example, “Buy now!”, or “Try Risk Free!” are phrases that are worn out, tired, and too salesy. Why don’t you create a call to action that makes the reader agree with your over all sales pitch? For example, if you are selling acne cream, you could say, “Yes! I want this acne off of my face now!”

The key to creating a call to action, is to empathize with the customer’s emotions. How would you feel if you were in their shoes? What thoughts would you have in your mind, regarding a product that promises a solution to the problem?

Here’s one more tip: Use a P.S., or a P.P.S at the end of your copy. It draws attention, and it can summarize the preceding sales pitch. It can also detail the consequences of what will happen, if the reader doesn’t buy your sales pitch.
