    Great overview of how to write sales copy. Note this is particularly written for people writing large sales pitches, and not as useful for snippets like Facebook ads etc, unless they are part of an overall lead flow. That said, you could use bits and pieces from this to build out shorter ad copy, but I recommend adding some additional understanding of psychology (for example, read the book 'Influence' by Robert Cialdini) and add the two together.

    I was directed towards this book for my Copy and Content Writing class and it was helpful in a multitude of ways. I am coming to copy as a beginner and didn't really understand what the difference was between it and content writing before reading this book. This had a lot of great tips and was formatted well for easy reading from beginning to end, but also for reference reading and topic choosing.

    This book offered some good takeaways, but it read more like a bunch of blog posts compiled into one book rather than a cohesive story arc.

    Ray Edwards is a great copywriting trainer, not a good book writer. The chapters give great ideas for improving copy, at the same time there seems to be a lack of cohesion between chapters. So read each chapter as a stand alone and you will learn a lot and get a ton of value.

PASTOR framework “P” IS FOR PERSON, PROBLEM, AND PAIN It’s a psychological principle identified by marketing wizard Jay Abraham: the more accurately you can describe your reader’s problem in terms they relate to, the more they instinctively feel that you must have an answer to that problem. Use the reader’s own language, the very words and phrases they use to describe the problem they want to solve As the great copywriting legend Robert Collier said, you have to “join the conversation that is already taking place in the reader’s mind.” Selling is transfer of feeling and you can’t transfer something you don’t have. “A” IS FOR AMPLIFY AND ASPIRATIONS You must make them aware of the cost of indecision S” IS FOR STORY, SOLUTION, AND SYSTEM There is always a story to tell. “T” IS FOR TRANSFORMATION AND TESTIMONY Has this person been able to do what they are describing for themselves? Has this person been able to teach other people to achieve the results they are describing? Will this person be able to teach me how to achieve these results O is for offer R is for Response The most boring, black-words-on-white-background sales page will outperform a flashy, colorful site every time... Chapter - 2 : Magic Building Block of a Perfect Sales Letter P : Person, Problem and Pain A. Pre-Head Eyebrow : Hey, Pug Owners. What’s in it for me? You are signalling by your message, do you belong to this group? Lead Listen to what questions people are asking Writing a letter Prospects never read anything at first; they never believe anything at first; and they never buy anything at first. They skim, scroll and scan Talking about the difference between manipulation and persuasion. In my opinion, manipulation is using tricks to convince people to do things they didn’t want to do in the first place, things that are not in their best interest. Persuasion, on the other hand, is using tactics to persuade people to do something that is in their best interest, and that they wanted to do to start with What we mean by rapport is relationship building. People like three kinds of people: one, those who are like themselves; two, those they would like to be; and three, those who like them back. Those are the keys to building rapport. Rapport is building your relationship, a friendly relationship that makes a person feel understood and valued. An example of good rapport building copy, from a sales letter about a gold instruction product: “If you’ve ever suspected — like most good golfers I know — that the best way to get really good at golf is to just figure it out yourself... you now have proof it’s true The goal when writing copy is to demonstrate the value to the buyer is at least 10 times the price The 15 Building Blocks of a Sales Letter 1. Pre-Head: Targets the prime prospect for your message and grabs his or her attention. 2. Headline: The “ad for the rest of the ad;” its job is to get the reader to keep reading. 3. Deck: Reinforces the impact of the idea proposed in the headline and arouses curiosity. 4. Lead: Sets the criteria of who this letter is for and what they stand to gain by reading it. 5. Body: The bulk of your text; it consists of all the elements below. 6. Subheads: Smaller headlines separating major sections; the “bucket brigade” of your copy. 7. Rapport: Demonstrates you know the reader, their pain and problem. 8. Bullet Points: Brief statements that arouse curiosity. 9. Credibility: Answers, “Why should I listen to this person?” 10. Testimonials: Third-party proof that your solution does what you claim. 11. Value Justification: Highlights the value of the offer & contrasts it favorably to the price. 12. Risk Reversal: Removes the biggest obstacle to getting an order, which is fear. 13. Bonus: Unexpected gift that enhances the value of your offer; the “extra degree.” 14. Explicit Offer (Call to Action): You “ask for the order” and tell the reader what to do. 15. P.S.: The place to sum up the top benefit of your product for your readers. Chapter - 3 : HOW TO WRITE HEADLINES THAT GRAB READERS BY THE EYEBALLS AND SUCK THEM INTO YOUR MESSAGE “If you can come up with a good headline and lead, you are almost sure to have a good ad. But even the greatest copywriter can’t save an ad with a poor headline.” —John Caples 5 ESSENTIAL QUALITIES OF A COMPELLING HEADLINE The headlines and subheads in your sales copy (and the post titles you choose for your blog and email subject lines) serve the same purpose as headlines in a newspaper or magazine. They either draw the reader in, or they push the reader away. Here are five essential qualities of a compelling headline: 1. Grabs Attention. Your headline’s number-one job is to grab the reader’s attention. To accomplish this, your headline must either: make a claim or promise, evoke an emotional response, or stir up curiosity. Examples Can You Really Be Younger Next Year? Which Of These Five Mistakes Do You Make on Your Blog? 2. Screens and Qualifies Readers. Choose specific words that segment out the exact “tribe” you want to reach. Headlines that apply to everyone can just as easily apply to no one. Examples: Why New Authors Fail, and What to Do about It Top 10 iPad Apps For Entrepreneurs 3. Draws Readers into the Body Copy. Remember you’re not selling your concept or proposition in the headline. You’re making one sale only: the idea of reading the rest of the post. Examples: How to Write a Book in Seven Days Does God Want You to Be Rich? 4. Communicates the “Big Idea.” What is the one true benefit of your post, and how can you communicate that to your readers in a way that is meaningful to them? Put that in your headline. Examples: Triple Your Productivity Instantly The Customer Is Not Always Right 5. Establishes Credibility. Authority is one of the most powerful ways of gaining attention. If you have an “authority card” to play, play it in the headline if possible. Examples: Ph.D. Psychologist Reveals Secret Of Self-Discipline Harvard Study Shows 3 Common Traits Of Successful People Incorporating these five principles into your headlines should bring you more traffic, and more sales. Using them on your blog will bring you more readers, and more engagement with your Key Qualities of Compelling Headlines 1. Grabs Attention. Your headline’s number-one job is to arrest the prospect’s attention with a single “big idea.” 2. Screens and Qualifies Prospects. Choose specific words that segment out the exact prospects you want to reach. Headlines that apply to everyone can just as easily apply to no one. 3. Draws Readers into the Body Copy. Your headline’s job is to convince readers to ... keep reading. 4. Communicates the “Big Idea.” What is the one true benefit of your offer, and how can you communicate that to your prospects? Put that into your headline. 5. Establishes Credibility. If you can establish some authority in your headline or pre-head, you will be far ahead of most copywriters. 5 Headline Templates to Make More Sales Today 1. The “How-To” Headline. 2. The “Transactional” Headline. 3. The “Reason-Why” Headline. 4. The “Probing Question” Headline. 5. The “If-Then” Headline. “I will read any email that requires my attention, any email that is positive feedback, or that will make me feel good about my work. I do not want to read any emails that are negative in nature. Please do whatever needs to be done to make that person happy.” 21 Keys to Persuasive Autoresponders and E-mails 1. Use E-mail Marketing to Build Permission-Based Lists. Prospects who give you permission to market to them are most likely to buy. Honor (and widen) the circle of permission. 2. Use a Reputable E-mail Delivery Service. If your e-mail doesn’t get delivered, you won’t make any sales; getting it delivered is a full-time job. 3. Give Web Visitors Reasons To Opt- In, And Set Their Expectations Properly. You must offer some sort of premium to entice visitors to give up their names and e-mail addresses. 4. Avoid Spam Complaints with Frequent, Consistent Mailings. Surprising as it sounds, mailing more often can reduce spam complaints. 5. Use Autoresponders as Robotic Sales Agents. A sequence of contacts is a powerful way of delivering your sales message. 6. Give People an Unusually Great Reason To Opt- In. Work harder than other marketers to create Lead Magnets of Unusual Value. 7. Give People Great Reasons to Stay On Your List. Don’t take it for granted that anybody is interested in reading your next email. Give them a reason to want to read it. 8. Ask for a “Sale” in Every E-mail. Treat each e-mail like a miniature sales letter; just be clear what the call to action is for that particular e-mail. Get them in the habit of clicking on your links! 9. Craft a Powerful Signature File for All E-mails. This is a powerful action device. Don’t forget it. 10. Use Broadcast E-mails for Promotions. Broadcasts are great for promotions and launch sequences (time-bound offers). 11. Know Your Most Wanted Response. If you don’t know it, how can you elicit the desired behavior? 12. Use Only One MWR Per Email. The confused mind never buys. 13. Craft Subject Lines Using the PAC Formula. Write your subject lines so that they are personal, fulfill anticipation, and arouse curiosity. 14. Start Each E-mail with Undeniable, Confirmable Truth. For instance, you might start with the date; subtle credibility. 15. Use Headline Techniques, but Not Headline Formatting. Avoid making your e-mail look like an ad. 16. Put the Main Benefit in the Lead, with a Link. The first paragraph is the lead, and you should have a link to your MWR in that paragraph (or following it). 17. Use a PS That Summarizes the Main Benefit and Provides a Link. Just like in your sales letter, the PS may be the only copy in your e-mail the prospect reads. 18. Place a Minimum of 3 Links to Your Call to Action in the E-mail Body. The first two will get most of the clicks. 19. Send Short E-mails That Create Zeigarnik Effect. Your MWR is most likely to get the prospect to visit a Web page. 20. Send Emails That Look Like They Were Sent by a Friend. You want your emails to look like those of a friend, not like sales fliers or newspaper ads. 21. Always Honor Unsubscribe Requests. Avoid needless headaches. The Zen Master’s Email Rule: Don’t Read Complaint E-mails. And whatever you do, don’t get involved in replying; have someone on your staff do it for you. Preserve your peaceful state of calm, relaxed creativity. One of the first “somethings” you can do, especially if you are at a loss as to where to start writing, is to just write ... something! I’ve gone on record as saying I don’t believe in writer’s block. It’s true; I don’t believe in it, and I don’t suffer from it. 1) Start a bullet swipe file I encourage you to start swipe files whenever you find good copy that you respond to. Start saving the e-mails you receive that catch your interest and make you want to read them. Notice the commonalities of those e-mails that make that happen. Start saving your snail mail. I’m not talking about the coupons you get from the pizza parlor down the street. I’m talking about promotions you get for magazine and newsletter subscriptions, information on products, bigger ticket items that really catch your attention and make you want to open the envelope. WHAT IS A “SWIPE FILE”? According to Wikipedia, “A swipe file is a collection of tested and proven advertising and sales letters. Keeping a swipe file (templates) is a common practice used by advertising copywriters and creative directors as a ready reference of ideas for projects.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swipe_file The key point to keep in mind is that s swipe file is a “ready reference of ideas,” not a file to use for plagiarism! Study and emulate the styles, techniques, and underlying structures – but never just copy another writer’s words. That’s stealing, and aside from being wrong, it’s also illegal. Swipe responsibly! A bullet point is simply a one or two-line sentence that’s defined by a bullet, a round circle, a checkmark, or perhaps a little box next to it, that sets it apart from the rest of the text. The reason for using bullets in our copy is very simple. Earlier, we discussed the fact that there are three things people never do when first reading your copy. They never read anything at first; they never believe anything at first; and they never do or buy anything at first. We know they don’t read your copy. They skim the copy. They scan through it. They scroll through it. To get them to start reading, we use devices to capture their attention. One of those devices is the headline. That’s what gets their attention initially to get them to read the rest of the ad, copy, or sales page. The next devices are the subheads, the smaller headlines throughout the copy that telegraph the message of your sales copy. The third device we use to get people to stop skimming, scanning, and scrolling—and start reading—are bullet points. There’s a “master bullet type” that most of these bullets will fall under, called the “blind” bullet. What is a blind bullet? A blind bullet is a bullet that tantalizes your reader with a curiosity-inducing statement, yet does not reveal the actual secret behind it, in effect setting up an “open loop” that the mind longs to complete. A void of curiosity that leaves the reader thinking, “I want to know the answer behind that particular bullet.” That is one of the things that make bullets so incredibly effective. The only way to know the answer for sure is to buy the product! 21 Bullet Point Templates You Can Use Today 1. The “Wrong!” Bullet. When you can contradict a common assumption, use the “wrong!” bullet. 2. The “Themed Sequence” Bullet. For instance, “7 Deadly Diet Sins” or “3 Humiliating Secrets Men Don’t Want Women to Know.” 3. The “Two-Step” Bullet. A two-step bullet offers a parenthetical elaboration on the main benefit statement. This parenthetical statement is the real “magnet” in the bullet. 4. The “Giveaway” Bullet. Every now and then, “give” them something. 5. The “Reverse Hook” Bullet. Interesting fact plus unexpected benefit. 6. The “Naked Benefit” Bullet. This bullet makes a direct benefit claim, but it must be supported by some additional facts or intrigues that deepen your reader’s interest. 7. The “Transactional” Bullet. Simple transaction: “Give me ... and I’ll give you...” 8. The “If... Then...” Bullet. Give the prospect something easy for him or her to do or comply with—and associate it to a benefit.

    Copywriting means writing blog post, articles, social media posts, and … in a way that convince readers to do something or do specific action. This action could be buying a product or service, help a charity, joining the army or etc. Copywriting somehow is a form of writing, and copywriters are commercial writers. Book explains the copywriting basic concepts. It includes excellent and practical examples.

    How do you express your big idea in a brief crystal? Describe their experience as it currently is. Then join the conversation that is going on in their mind. What is that person's problem and pain? Once you understand their issue, then share excitement that you can solve it. Then exaggerate the problem they are facing once more.

What is that person's problem and pain? Once you understand their issue, then share excitement that you can solve it. Then exaggerate the problem they are facing once more. You can't just paint a beautiful picture alone, they need to believe they need it. What does it cost them not to solve their problem? Price of long term cost of not solving it. Not getting to invest in VC anymore through their mandate. Listen to the questions people are asking. That’s how they know what to create. People like people like them, who they want to be and who like them back. Always add in a P.S. at the bottom. For people who skim, that could be your take home point. Everyone reads the P.S. PS started with handwritten in ink. Couldn’t add something after written. So added a post script. Headlines that apply to everyone apply to no one. How to headline. How to read more without reading more. Give people something to click on. Every time they get an email from you there should be an interesting or funny thing to click on. Keep emails to one point or ask. Don't have 2-3 requests per email. One call to action that you’re asking for. People remember things more when they are unresolved. Say something like "Free up space in your mind. Subscribe here." Tell a story - if you want to find out what happened to Zach, read tomorrow. Or click here to finish. We need to close open loops. When someone opens your e-mail, act and write like they want to buy. Ask for the sale. People hate hassles more than losing money. How do you make everything easier? Scarcity, urgency and need. Show those three in whatever you are selling.

I am a WordPress developer looking to offer sales/marketing copy to extend my product offering and not outsource some of the writing. This was perfect for that.

He warns that some of the techniques CAN be used to manipulate, but strongly urges the reader against it. This hammered home his authority on the subject. Furthermore, he gives real examples the whole way, instead of just talking through points at a high level. I listened to the audiobook, but will be purchasing a hard copy to keep as a reference as well. I don’t write a ton of reviews, as my profile will indicate, but I simply had to for this one.

    This is an audiobook read by the author and he does a fabulous job of it. However, if one wishes to actually use his advise on how to write advertisements to sell your product, I suspect you will need the buy the book as well. Any problems with this book? Nothing serious. There is an occassional subtle message that one might want to sign up for his seminar as well. It was not crass. Just informational, but given the advise he was giving in the audiobook, it was no doubt intentional. I'd listen to This is an audiobook read by the author and he does a fabulous job of it.

    I found the book to be very useful in quite a few places. The organization was well done, making it easy for me to skim over the parts that weren't as relevent to me, and the writing was concise. I felt the first half of the book was the best part, with the second half containing a lot of repetitive ideas already covered earlier in the book. It is definitely a useful book if you are wanting to learn how to write basically anything for your business. I found the book to be very useful in quite a few places.

    Excellent book. Quick read, and formatted in a way that it can be used as a reference easily. Just reading a few chapters fundamentally changed the way I write ad copy. I ended up making new flyers for my business during the reading of the book. I feel like I know the fundamentals of ad copy and I feel way more confident about writing it. Great book, would recommend to all entrepreneurs.

    Well written, gave great tips, methods and did NOT pitch any paid for services. If you are into sales or copy writing nothing that odf rhe wall. A good addition to my collection because it does talk about how to do it in print, online blog etc

    This book comes highly recommended by quite a few online marketers. After reading it, I know why. It is second to none, and can propel you ahead in your journey as a professional or hobbyist marketer. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

    Solid This book covers a lot of ground. Perhaps too much. There's lots of actionable advice (as the phrase goes) and I had the highlighter finger out. However, (even) more examples would have been helpful. Also perhaps more focus on the sales letter with a deeper dive. Solid This book covers a lot of ground. Perhaps too much.

    Although this is list-oriented (21 points on this or that), the book moves along well. It works in audio, but I'll likely get the paperback to use as a reference copy. A solid guide for first-time copywriters. Although this is list-oriented (21 points on this or that), the book moves along well.

    This book nails it Easy to read, and filled with helpful exercises. I recommend this book for beginner and experienced copywriters. Fundamental concepts, and techniques with a twist, or different angle for the experienced copywriter. So good, I plan to read it again.

    "Remember that whatever you're selling, whether it's a home study program, a book, a seminar, your consulting services--anything at all--what people are buying is not the 'stuff,' it's the transformation."

    Great book on how to write copy. Some top takeaways: Most powerful headline: Any (audience) can (solve problem) by using (product) because (how it solves).  It's good to leave the reader hanging.
