    The Secret To Copy That Converts

    ChatGPT will tell you the secret is:

    1.) Know Your Audience:
    Understanding the target audience is essential for crafting copy that resonates with them. Research their pain points, desires, and motivations. Speak their language and use words and phrases they are familiar with.

    2.) Use Clear and Concise Language:
    The copy should be easy to read and understand. Avoid jargon, buzzwords, and complex sentences. Use active voice and keep the sentences short and to the point.

    3.) Highlight Benefits Over Features:
    Instead of just listing features, focus on the benefits the product or service can provide to the customer. Use storytelling to illustrate how the product can solve the customer's problems and improve their lives.

    4.) Use Persuasive Language:
    Use language that persuades the reader to take action. This includes using action verbs, creating a sense of urgency, and offering a clear call-to-action.

    5.) Provide Social Proof:
    People are more likely to trust and buy from a company that has social proof. This includes testimonials, reviews, and endorsements from satisfied customers or industry experts.

    6.) Test and Optimize:
    No copy is perfect from the beginning. Continuously test and optimize the copy to improve conversion rates. This can include A/B testing headlines, call-to-action buttons, and other elements to see what works best.


    ....those are all correct, but I would ask if your copy does this:


    Does it make people do the thing you ask?

    If the copy convinces a large amount of people to take the specific action you asked for (call, click this button, signup email etc), then you've succeeded!

    "Does it make people do the thing you ask?"

    This a great question to ask yourself after you finish writing your copy.

    It's so easy to get lost in your own head when writing. This brings the focus right back. What is the one thing I want them to do.

    Totally @Hitesh Rana! Many people get caught up in "is this good copy" when they should be asking "Does it make people get on a call?"


    If the answer is no.  Then you're not done.

    I wrote some copy yesterday.  I asked myself that question.  My answer was kinda.  

    I know I can do better...

    So I'm still working on it. 

    Thanks for the tip, Neville!

    I think so often we can get caught up in something being pretty, or sounding nice, when basic Direct Response principles are:

    Did it sell?
