I learned a lot from a sales pitch I got at a gas station. I'll tell you the story, and the valuable lesson (which will help you!)

Feature Story: Gas Station Sales Lesson

Here we are, in a time when a lot of people are being washed out of all kinds of businesses, online and offline.

The excuse given is usually: “the economy”.

I’ve addressed the use of those two words as excuse elsewhere.

You see, the very qualities exemplified by a couple of gas station pitch-men are the same qualities that could save a lot of businesses from going under.

Listen to the story – and learn!

Persuasive prose produces profits. Writing persuasive copy gets your emails opened and read, your ideas shared and promoted, your blog posts ranked in Google, and your products and services sold. Today's episode gives your 3 “tricks” to make your writing more persuasive.

Feature Story: 3 Powerful Tricks For More Persuasive Writing

Writing persuasive copy is simple – but not always easy.

The most persuasive techniques usually are the ones that are simplest. Here are three simple tricks the top copywriters know will help them sell more (of whatever they're selling)…

  1. Know your prospects. This means doing your homework, and knowing the audience you're writing to (and selling to) inside out. You must know, at the very least their FFA's (fears, frustrations, and aspirations). If you know those three things, you have some powerful mojo at your disposal.
  2. Speak the language of your audience. If you are writing to golfers, for instance, you absolutely must not call the instruments of play anything other than clubs. Referring to “ball striking sticks” will earn your copy a quick trip to the trashcan. I know the example is ridiculous, but I see copywriters making mistakes equally as ridiculous all the time.
  3. Know your product. Again, a seemingly obvious point, yet one of the most frequently violated principles of writing persuasive copy. The more you know about your product, the more persuasively you will be able to communicate about it. Newbie copywriters would do well to study the greats, particularly Eugene Schwartz, who often read a book four (or more) times, and had 100 pages of notes written in his own hand, when he finally sat down to write the copy that would sell the book.

As I said, simple. Not necessarily easy.

Listener Questions
