Copywriting Tips


Today I am presenting you with my top 3 copywriting tips and ideas you use continuously to create charismatic and persuasive marketing campaigns.

As a direct marketer, you need to generate a lot of copy to generate leads and produce sales orders. To the point that eventually you will either burn out or run out of ideas. Unless you have a swipe file to get fresh ideas from.

And that’s exactly what I want to help you build – a swipe file of copywriting ideas that you can put into motion when running a campaign.

The sky’s the limit when you use creativity properly. And that’s where I want to help you.

Now, drawing from all the knowledge I’ve gathered in over ten years of marketing studies – as well as my experience as a direct response copywriter – here are the top 30 copywriting tips for direct marketers.

Promote Your Offers Effectively

Use your advertising to promote any product or service you offer – from newsletter subscriptions to advanced wealth management.

Your advertising should focus on getting the attention of your target audience. And here are some ideas that will help you do just that:

  • bring attention to a threat for the audience
  • draw a quick – yet appealing – picture
  • make a big promise
  • highlight a mistake they could be making
  • double-up on the benefits you offer

To promote your offers effectively, you need to get the attention right away with substantial content that will make them interested in what you offer. Remember – you’re not a comedian or actor when promoting. You are a salesperson, and you should conduct business accordingly.

Speak Directly to Your Audience

One mistake you could be making that you may not have noticed yet is that you are not speaking directly to the consumer. And by that, I mean that you’re either focusing so much on how awesome you are or that you’re being too stiff in addressing the market.

Have a conversation about what the consumer wants and how the advertiser can provide. These ideas will help you do just that:

  • delve into the fears that the audience has
  • tell a story
  • tell them what no one else will

You conduct business through conversation. If your conversation doesn’t spark interest within the prospect, you will not close the deal.

Make sure that, when speaking to the market, you know and understand their wants or needs first and foremost.

Use Your Cred

Credibility is an important aspect of marketing and advertising – now more than ever.

People don’t buy things blindly anymore. They understand the dangers of scammers more than before and do as much research as possible to know that they are getting what they’re paying for.

To establish your credibility, just go to your data bank and look for:

  • testimonials
  • statistics
  • experiments
  • templates
  • interviews
  • reviews
  • mindmaps
  • frameworks
  • surveys
  • demos
  • trends
  • and the likes

Never underestimate the intelligence of your market. Make sure that they get all the information they need to make the right purchase decision. And then, give them some more (just in case).
