You could spend thousands of dollars on advertisement and have
extremely low or no results in sales because of your
poor-planned copy. You shouldn’t be amazed by the fact that
huge corporations all over the world do that mistake and waste
millions of dollars on false advertisement campaigns.
However, how can you write a good sales copy and killer ads
that get the attention of people? There are no magic recipes
for that, but you can follow some fundamental rules, which can
lead to you to success if you adopt them properly.
1) Have a good product. Be honest and mean what you say or
you offer. Avoid the exaggerations and hyped claims. You stake
your reputation and your business offline or online it doesn’t
make any difference.
2) Have a plan on your trial and error period. Don’t expect to
write your first copy and be a golden one. You will alter it
many times, test it, retest it, try a new one and so on. Set a
schedule for that. Do not fool around.
3) AIDA. It’s the proven and the bedrock of the copy process.
Always follow it. AIDA
A= Attention. You must grab it instantly or you don’t have a

A= Action. You must convince them to act now. Not tomorrow,
next week e.t.c. They will forget it a few hours later.

something emotionally and then justify it rationally.
5) Headline is the Key. If it doesn’t grab their attention
they‘ve gone away. Your headline must be a killer one.
6) Promote your best and strong benefit at first, not last.
That’s how you are going to create interest and then desire.
7) Tell stories. That’s an excellent way to rekindle their
emotion or even their passion. Stories always inspire.
8) Answer all the objections and questions you think your
prospects would have. In that way, you will gain their trust.
9) Use bullet points for each of your benefits and bold,
italics fonts for your text. Use the underline feature but not
10) Give time limit. This is an excellent tool for calling
prospects to act now!
11) Offer testimonials. It is the mother of gaining-trust
tools. Especially, if it is from someone important in your

site. Make it as easy as possible.
13) Avoid graphics. They won’t help you. People are looking
information not images.
14) Give guarantees. Research has proved that when you have a
long guarantee, your client will feel safer and that leads to
fewer refunds too!
15) Never assume that your prospects know what you want to
Always be specific and clear about your product or service.
16) Have your copy or ad checked by your friends, colleagues
e.t.c. It’s better to have other views, after all, it’s a part
of the testing process.
