The Structure of AIDAS... For Successful Sales Letters

Staying on the topic of sales letters, there’s a well-known structure in successful sales letters described by the acronym AIDA.

AIDA stands for:
• Attention
• Interest
• Desire
• Action

First, you capture your prospect’s attention. This is done with your headline and lead. If your ad fails to capture your prospect’s attention, it fails completely. Your prospect doesn’t read your stellar copy, and doesn’t order your product or service.

Then you want to build a strong interest in your prospect. You want him to keep reading, because if he reads, he just might buy.

Next, you channel a desire. Having a targeted market for this is key, because you’re not trying to create a desire where one did not already exist. You want to capitalize on an existing desire, which your prospect may or may not know he already has. And you want your prospect to experience that desire for your product or service.

Finally, you present a call to action. You want him to pick up the telephone, return the reply card, attend the sales presentation, order your product, whatever. You need to ask for the sale (or response, if that’s the goal). You don’t want to beat around the bush at this point. If your letter and AIDA structure is sound and persuasive, here’s where you present the terms of your offer and urge the prospect to act now.

A lot has been written about the AIDA copywriting formula. I’d like to add one more letter to the acronym: S for Satisfy.

In the end, after the sale is made, you want to satisfy your prospect, who is now a customer. You want to deliver exactly what you promised (or even more), by the date you promised, in the manner you promised. In short, you want to give him every reason in the world to trust you the next time you sell him a back-end offer. And of course you’d rather he doesn’t return the product (although if he does, you also execute your return policy as promised).

Either way, you want your customers to be satisfied. It will make you a lot more money in the long run.

Long Sales Copy vs Short Copy... The Debate Continues...

In the last couple of days, I've been involved in a discussion on a popular forum about Long Sales Copy vs Short Copy... and it inspired this post...

The More You Tell, The More You Sell. Period.

The debate on using long copy versus short copy never seems to end. Usually it is a newcomer to copywriting who seems to think that long copy is boring and, well…long. “I would never read that much copy,” they say.

The fact of the matter is that all things being equal, long copy will outperform short copy every time. And when I say long copy, I don’t mean long and boring, or long and untargeted.

The person who says he would never read all that copy is making a big mistake in copywriting: he is going with his gut reaction instead of relying on test results. He is thinking that he himself is the prospect. He’s not. We’re never our own prospects.

There have been many studies and split tests conducted on the long copy versus short copy debate. And the clear winner is always long copy. But that’s targeted relevant long copy as opposed to untargeted boring long copy.

Some significant research has found that readership tends to fall off dramatically at around 300 words, but does not drop off again until around 3,000 words.

If I’m selling an expensive set of golf clubs and send my long copy to a person who plays golf occasionally, or always wanted to try golf, I am sending my sales pitch to the wrong prospect. It is not targeted effectively. And so if a person who receives my long copy doesn’t read past the 300th word, they weren’t qualified for my offer in the first place.

It wouldn’t have mattered whether they read up to the 100th word or 10,000th word. They still wouldn’t have made a purchase.

However, if I send my long copy to an avid die-hard golfer, who just recently purchased other expensive golf products through the mail, painting an irresistible offer, telling him how my clubs will knock 10 strokes off his game, he’ll likely read every word. And if I’ve targeted my message correctly, he will buy.

Remember, if your prospect is 3000 miles away, it’s not easy for him to ask you a question. You must anticipate and answer all of his questions and overcome all objections in your copy if you are to be successful.

And make sure you don’t throw everything you can think of under the sun in there. You only need to include as much information as you need to make the sale…and not one word more.

If it takes a 10-page sales letter, so be it. If it takes a 16-page magalog, fine. But if the 10-page sales letter tests better than the 16-page magalog, then by all means go with the winner.

Does that mean every prospect must read every word of your copy before he will order your product? Of course not. Some will read every word and then go back and reread it again. Some will read the headline and lead, then skim much of the body and land on the close. Some will scan the entire body, then go back and read it. All of those prospects may end up purchasing the offer, but they also all may have different styles of reading and skimming.

Let the debate continue...

Article Writing Tips - 3 Simple Tips to Improve Your Articles

By Steven Wagenheim

Not everything has to be complicated. Lots of folks who I speak to, when looking for article writing tips, expect to discover some complex formula for churning out killer articles. Well, as much as I hate to have to disappoint you, there is nothing complex about writing a good article. Writing is as old as mankind itself. There is no mystery to it. Yet, it seems that many beginning article writers don't have clue one where to begin. Well, this article is going to provide you with three simple tips to improve your articles...dramatically.

The first tip actually starts before you even write one word of the article itself. I'm talking about the title of your article. Just like the headline of your sales letter, your article title is critical to getting people to actually read your article. It's very simple to write a good title. Just tell the person what they're going to learn from reading the article. It doesn't have to be fancy. For example, the title of this article makes it perfectly clear what you're going to find out from reading the article...3 simple tips to improve your articles. No mystery there.

The next tip is to keep the article structure simple and well broken up. By simple I mean, provide the reader with a brief introduction telling them what they're going to get out of the article and then, taking a paragraph for each point, give them what you told them you're going to give them. So if you write an article, "3 Ways To Wash A Cat" make sure you have one paragraph for each way. Yeah, I know it sounds simple, but you'd be surprised how many people don't do this one simple thing.

The final tip has to do with your summary. Yes, you want to summarize your article. Why? Because people have short memories. So you want to reinforce, briefly, what you told these people in the body of your article, in the summary. The summary should be very short. Remember, you've already given them the meat of the information so there is no need for a long dissertation.

I told you it was simple. By providing a good title that tells the reader what he's going to read, a simple structure that's easy to follow and a summary that goes over the main points of the article, you'll write articles that people will enjoy reading and actually get something out of.

To YOUR Success,

Steven Wagenheim

The Best Affiliate Program On The Internet
The 5 Pillar Club

I see this question on many forums every day...

What is The Best Affiliate Program On The Internet?

I'll tell you...

The SiteSell 5 Pillar Club

Try and find any other affiliate program on the Internet that offers:

- High Commissions
- Lifetime Customers
- 70 Deep-Linked Landing Pages
- A Powerful Toolbox of Help
- And Best Of All, It's a 2 Tier Program

And It's FREE to Join!!!

Those are Critical Differentiating Points... Lifetime and 2nd tier commissions are not offered by most affiliate programs. Heck, even basic commissions are often not "really" offered. The tracking cookie is so short, terms of use written in fine print, that you often don't get credited when you refer a sale.

When you promote SiteSell's 5 Pillar Club and you make a sale, that customer becomes your Lifetime Customer... he is tagged with your Permanent Cookie... so you earn commissions on the first sale, renewals and multiple sales of SBI! (more than half of all SBIers own more than one!)

It's no wonder Super Affiliates promote this program!

Join the 5 Pillar Club Today and Kick Start Your Affiliate Career into High Gear!

A Powerful 3 Word Formula To Help Increase Your Click-Through Rate (CTR)

Relevancy – Content – Copy

Though it consists of just 3 simple words, it’s not that easy to master. However once you’ve mastered and combined them into one force, your click-through rate WILL massively skyrocket from your current levels.

Relevancy
Here’s something to think about…

There are hundreds of message boards or forum online. Each forum is geared towards a certain topic or interest and those who register are obviously interested in that particular subject. Every now and then, someone may make a post and will introduce this by labeling it as an ‘off topic’ subject. The point here is that the poster knows before hand that the subject of his post is out of context and so ‘apologizes’ for the post.

The subject of this Blog is on making money Online from home. If I suddenly told you about how to make my grandma’s secret recipe you’ll think that I was losing my mind. At least you’ll look for the lesson from what I told you. If there was none then this will confirm your belief.

If you blog on subjects that are totally unrelated to your readers interests then you’ll likely lose credibility.

Every magazine covers a particular subject and you expect the editor to keep foreign stuff out. In this case you are your very own editor and should write to the interest of your readership.

In other words, be relevant! Give them what they want, remember?

Content
Content is what remains after you’ve stripped away all the ‘fluff’.

For example, right now you are reading this post. The words go together to form sentences and the sentences express complete thoughts – hopefully ;-) What you really want are not the sentences but the ideas that they express. That’s the content.

I’m sure that you’ve listened to speeches or presentation where the person said a lot but you were left with nothing in the end. Some people refer to this as a lot of hot air - just a lot of sentences but no new ideas.

Your subscribers will be after content.

If there is just a lot of flavor but no nutrition then you’ll be filling them with a lot of junk food posts.

Your readers will look forward to reading your stuff if you can give them solid information that will bring added value to their businesses and lives.

It’s not that much of a revelation that content is king not only for the search engines but for your profits as well.

Copy
By ‘copy’ we mean the art of writing persuasively.

Yes copywriting applies to blogging as well. You must understand the hot buttons that motivates subscribers to take action and click through the links in your posts or your emails for that matter.

There is a formula that you can follow which we’ll discuss later but you must be aware that a post that aims to get people to take action must be carefully crafted.

On the surface the post may appear to be a simple message but the writer must know that there are psychological triggers within that copy that will get people to act.

The basis of writing good copy is to realize that your subscribers have mental barriers that must be broken through if they are going to buy your products or services.

These are some of the main objections that you have to address when you need them to take a desired action, for example:

- "I can't afford it.”

You must show them that they are getting more value than the price they are paying right now. It’s best to show a dollar example of how the product can save them or make them more money or whatever benefit you are promising.

- “How do I know you're qualified to make this offer?"

Show that you are qualified to make the offer by listing your qualifications, experiences.

- "I don't believe you."

Testimonials of others who used your product or the product you are promoting will help to dispel this one. If it works for others, they’ll think, then it can work for me too.

- "I don't need it right now … maybe later."

You must provide an incredible incentive to act now by adding bonuses for the early birds or show that it's limited quantities. Show what they will continue to be like if they don’t get the product.

- "I doubt this will work for me"

Again testimonials will help to dispel this one. Be sure that your testimonials have “average Joe’s” that used the product and had great results.

- "What will happen if I don't like it?"

Here is where you must provide a strong money-back guarantee. The stronger and longer the guarantee the more you’ll help them over this barrier.

- “You don't really understand my problem."

Try to show how much like your potential customer you are. How you’ve walked in their shoes and know where the painful spots are but most of all have the solution.

Keep in mind that people are motivated to buy based on their emotions and justify their purchase later by using logic.

You have to appeal to your readers emotions first before logic.

The two primal motivators are…

The hope of gain and the fear of loss.

Fear of loss is the stronger of the two. In other words people will be more motivated to save the money they already have than gain more money.

Here are the ways in which you must show that the product or service will benefit your readers: to increase wealth, to look better, to be popular, to reach inner peace, to have more time, to be secure and to have more fun. These are the things that people ultimately want so show how your product will eventually help your following to achieve these things.

It’s not difficult to learn the principles of writing good copy but it takes practice to get the feel of the methods. With continual practice and some trial and error you’ll soon discover what approaches works best with your readers.

How Is Your USP ?


What is a USP? If you don't know the answer to this question, you're business is in serious trouble! Again, an entire book can be written on this subject (many have been).

Your "USP" is your "Unique Selling Perspective".

In other words...Why is your business Unique?

What does your business possess that separates it from the rest of your competition?

Why should a customer buy from you instead of your competition?

What do you offer your customers that your competition doesn't?

If you’re going to be successful online, you need to learn more about how to develop a strong USP. This one aspect of your business could determine your success or failure.

Here's a good example....

Amazingly enough, a once failing pizza shop used the power of a strong USP to turn their struggling business into an empire. They decided to become unique and capitalize on one specific aspect of their business that no one else had yet capitalized on. Once they did, their profits soared!

Who is this pizza shop? Domino's Pizza.

How did they turn their business around?

With a simple, clever, slogan combined with a strong USP....

Delivered Hot And Fresh In 30 Minutes Or Less... OR IT'S FREE!

The young owner of Domino's Pizza didn't capitalize on fresh ingredients, the ripest tomatoes, 5 different cheeses, or special offers.... Everyone else was already doing that! This "college student" realized where the need was and hammered home his simple message! What did folks want from a pizza place?

They wanted their pizza FAST! This simple slogan and USP alone turned a once failing business into a MEGA MILLION DOLLAR FRANCHISE!

If you really want to discover how to develop a USP for your business, FOR FREE, you must read Dr. Ken Evoy's ebook, Make Your Site Sell, widely recognized as the "Bible For Selling Online". Although the last edit of this book dates back to 2002, it still contains a great amount of evergreen information and fundamentally sound ways to think about selling online.

Dr. Evoy is a master at his craft and over-delivers on every one of his e-books. He's propelled his business into one of the most visited sites online. Get His Book Today! You'll thank me tomorrow!

Relationship Marketing With E-mails


Let's take a look why E-mail marketing is so effective in the Internet marketing industry.

E-mail marketing is one of the fastest ways to leverage on the Internet. Because all you do is compose an E-mail, customize it to suit the reader (their first name or last name), and click the broadcast button to reach thousands of people instantly!

E-mail marketing is highly scalable. Unlike an ‘offline’ business where the more customers you have, the busier you are, in E-mail marketing, it is much easier because regardless of the size of your mailing list, whether it is 100 or 10,000, all you need to do is click broadcast and everyone on the list gets notified – all for the same effort!

E-mail marketing is highly targeted. One of the reasons why E-mail marketing is highly effective at getting sales is because the recipient of the E-mail gets a kind of ‘in your face’ promotion. You are marketing directly to the customer through their PERSONAL mailbox. Not only will you grab their attention firmly, they will tend to respond with the right buyers mindset because they are marketed to directly (unlike other advertising where the buyer might not be in the frame of mind to buy things).

E-mail marketing is personal. Autoresponders allow you to customize the E-mail in such a way that it allows you to connect with the subscriber individually. The more personalized your E-mail, the better the result (treat it as though you are writing to your best friend).

You can automate many tasks with your autoresponder. For every new opt-in subscriber, you can time your E-mails for you build a relationship with every new opt-in subscriber – what to send to them, when to send it to them and the frequency between each E-mail.

E-mail marketing acts as a good pre-sell. You might not be able to cram a sales letter into your E-mail, but at least you can pre-sell your subscriber and lead them to your blog, sales letter or website to check out what you have to offer and set them in the right frame of mind before they evaluate what you have to offer.
