If you are a decent copywriter, it’s not unusual to charge and receive $5000 or less for your services. Copywriting is much like an art form, and those who are competent in it are in demand because they can sell almost anything with words they write.
An experienced copywriter can always write for other businesses, however that person is in a great position to create as many online businesses as he/she wants. If there’s one thing that you should keep in mind about copywriting, it’s that it can make you achieve real Internet marketing success, and help you achieve your online goals easily. But this isn’t for everyone because so many people are not willing to be devoted to learning it. So if you are willing to put in the hard work, then the following tips will prove to be helpful to you.
A good sales copy is all about emotions. You have to write words that can persuade your prospects that you have an answer or solution to their needs. They should be ready to take action and buy from you without hesitation, and this can only be achieved when you know how to inject emotions into your words. You can’t write copy that’s monotonous, it has to be compelling and fascinating. Copywriting is not about just educating people or giving them facts, it’s about getting a specific reaction from them. On the other hand, stick with the truth and don’t use too much hype. You can be emotionally persuasive without being dishonest. Try to establish a feeling that you can understand and sympathize with their situation. This helps to lower their defenses and respond to your words emotionally. Taking the risk off from the shoulder of your potential customer will increase the chances of getting sales. The standard approach is with the money back, risk free guarantee. The less experienced marketers tend to be afraid to offer a great guarantee by thinking they’ll get ripped-off. But it’s quite the opposite; you’ll be able to get more business when you have a strong guarantee to support your product. If it ever does happen, just forget about it because really it happens very infrequently. Make sure your guarantee does not read like the shuttle launch menu. Here’s a small tip – the longer guarantee time you will have for your product, the less refund requests you will get.
The AIDA concept is an important writing guideline you would be well-served to learn about. Attention, Interest, Desire, Action is what AIDA is, and that represents the process you take the reader through in you sales material. What’s important is that your message is being delivered. It will also help a good deal to address any possible objections your reader may have. Copywriting is challenging and sometimes hard, and a lot of people try learning and writing it only to quit – so be it. The thing about copywriting is it’s critical for success to learn the most basic principles and concepts, and they you move on to more “heady” stuff. There are no shortcuts available, not even software, so just do what those who know advise you to do.
