Copywriting is one of the most important aspects of any online business. If you can’t write persuasive copy, you won’t be able to sell your products or services. In this blog post, we will discuss 10 tips for writing copy that sells. By following these tips, you will be able to create compelling and convincing content that will help you increase sales and grow your business!
1. Know your audience
You can’t write copy that sells unless you know who you are selling to. What is their age? Are they male or female? How much do they make? If you don’t know the answer to these questions, then you need to do more research about your potential customer or clients. You can use Google Analytics or Survey Monkey to find out more about your audience, whether it’s an offline or online business.
2. Know your product/service
It’s impossible to write copy that sells if you do not know anything about the product or service that you are offering. Before writing any content, make sure that you have a good knowledge of what your offering is all about. You don’t want to waste your time and effort writing content that isn’t going to help push your product or service.
3. Use benefits and not features
People don’t care about what your company offers; they only care about what it can do for them. They don’t want to know all of the features and specifications; they want to know what the benefits are. When you are writing content, make sure that you are using benefits and not features. For example, “Our business is committed to making your life simpler” is better than saying “We offer great customer service.”
4. Place the most important points at the beginning
People don’t have all day to read about your product or service. They are browsing the internet, waiting in line at the grocery store, or on their smartphones while sitting on the bus. You need to make sure that you are placing your most important points at the beginning of the copy so they can get a good idea about what your offering will do for them and whether or not it is worth their time and money.
5. Use a natural and conversational tone of voice
People don’t want to read textbooks when they are browsing the internet. You need to write copy that sounds like you’re having a conversation with your customer or client, instead of writing content as if you were writing an essay for school. The more informal and relaxed you are, the better.
6. Keep sentences and paragraphs short
According to studies, people have a lower attention span than goldfish. You need to make sure that you are keeping your sentences and paragraphs short and concise so that people can easily read and comprehend what you’re saying in a very limited amount of time.
7. Don’t be afraid to repeat
Some people are tempted to avoid mentioning the name of their product or service in copy, but you need to remember that repetition is key. If you have a popular product or service, then chances are you already have a following. You can mention your brand in your content multiple times without being annoying. It’s simply not possible for people to forget about your brand, even if they really want to.
8. Ask questions
You need to ask questions in order to engage with your audience and get them involved in the copy you are writing. Asking questions will also help push people towards making a purchase or signing up for what you’re offering because they will want answers. For example, you can say “Are you struggling with making sales?”
9. Use numbers and data
People are more likely to believe statistics than just some random person telling them about what’s good or bad. When you use numbers and data in copy, then your audience will trust what you’re saying because it is backed up by facts. You can use tools like Survey Monkey to get the data that you need.
10. Have some sort of CTA at the end
At the end of your content, be sure to include some sort of call-to-action (CTA) so that people know what they should do next. You can tell them to sign up for your email list, visit your website, or purchase right away.
