Personally, I know how frustrating it can be when a copywriting client gives you 1-2 day deadline to write a sales copy and thinks that you can do everything in this short period of time.
It really hurts when you have this crazy idea in your mind, but you don’t have the time to implement it in your sales copy.
When this happens…you would rather choke the copywriting client (don’t do that.) But it happens and we have to deal with that.
Writing master sales copy takes some time, but you can cut that period of time extremely by using the things I will show you.
With them you will be able to handle even the most crazy copywriting client deadlines, and laugh all the way to the bank.
But first, you need to pay attention. Also remember, nothing works unless you do. So, don’t just read about these awesome things, but use them.
If you won’t nothing will improve. Excited to see these stunning copywriting techniques that will let you write killer sales copy faster? If yes, let’s dive in!
1. Use Proven Copywriting Formulas
Because only rookies write sales copy from scratch, you need to use copywriting formulas so you will be able to skyrocket the speed of the writing process…
There are tons of copywriting formulas and many copywriters are making their own copywriting formulas.
But I’m only going to share things that I know that actually work.
The first copywriting formula is the most famous one and it has found it’s way to the copywriting hall of fame.
I believe you know it. It is called AIDA (Attention-Interest-Desire-Action)
Here is an infographic with a brief explanation of how it works and how to implement it in sales copy (you can download it below.)
AIDA works incredibly and if you want you can discover deep insights in my copywriting formulas blog post.
But it is not my favorite copywriting formula. The favorite copywriting formula I use the most of the time for writing sales copies is P-A-S.
Copywriters can use formulas like PAS to save time and energy versus brainstorming completely unique combinations.
Copywriting formulas use proven and effective strategies that act as fill-in-the-blank templates.
So, while many copywriters are using the same formula, the sales copy will always come out unique.
You don’t have to worry about looking like everyone else because you’re writing sales copy for a completely different audience, product, etc.
The sky is the limit!
In this section you want to dive deep into all their biggest problem you can solve.
Without a problem the reader has to face, there is no reason to buy at all.
“Don’t you hate it when your light bulb needs replacing? It is so annoying having to go to the shop and buy a new one.”
(Example from copywriting formulas blog post.)
In this section you want to inject emotion into that problem.
What makes the problem stressful? What emotions do people experience when they face this problem?
This stage also resonates with the reader because the reader sees that you understand the things they are experiencing by having this problem.
“Don’t you hate going to bed once the sun goes down? It’s like you’re living in the 1300s. Yes it is stressful not being able to turn on the light. Light bulbs should be easy to find and install.”
(Example from copywriting formulas blog post.)
The last part of this copywriting formula is to offer a solution. This is where you will present your offer, price, and tell them how you can solve their problems.
This is also the part where you will ask them to take action. Here you will make it rain!
“Our light bulbs shine brighter and longer than any other and will have you enjoying the evenings again in no time. You don’t have to lift a finger! We will send an experienced light bulb installer to your home to install our genuine light bulbs.”
(Example from copywriting formulas blog post)
Well, copywriting formulas are the first thing that can save you mountains of time when writing sales copy. Without them you will be writing longer than you could ever imagine, and the worst thing is that you will not sell a thing.
So, never forget to use them!
2. Build Your Own High-Quality Swipe File
Every copywriter should have his own swipe file. It is the main source of inspiration of every copywriter when writing sales copy, and it can save you hundreds of hours of time.
A swipe file is a collection of proven-to-convert copywriting examples.
These examples can be anything from headlines to blog post openings, and from sales emails to landing pages. Pro copywriters use swipe files to inspire their content and improve their skills.
To build a swipe file you have to stop reading and start analyzing content.
The examples in your swipe file are only useful if you will use them.
So, try to figure out why a piece of content is engaging or not, why content is persuasive or not, why content is inspirational or not.
If it is, replace the words in the phrase, sentence, or part of the sales copy with your words.
For Example, if I would be writing sales copy about dog food that makes your dog live longer, and if I would have a headline…
“Discover How This Miracle Formula Can Improve Your Kids Marks In School…“…
I would transform it into…
“Discover How This Miracle Dog Food Can Make Your Dog Live Ten Years Longer…”
Do you see how much time can you save by building your own high quality swipe file?
It is absolutely necessary to have your own swipe file because it can save you an extreme amount of frustration and worries when writing sales copies…
And where can you find these letters, ads, etc.?
Simply give it a Google search, find some websites with these ads, look for famous copywriters like Gary Halbert, John Carlton, Joseph Sugarman, etc.
There are thousands of these ads on the Internet. And every day there are new sales copies that you can add to the swipe file.
When some company announces a new product, they need to create a sales page to persuade readers to buy that product. And you will put that sales page into your swipe file.
There are also websites like swiped.co that will provide you with an archive that has hundreds of sales copies.
There are no limits when it comes to building your own swipe file.
3. Use Proven-To-Convert Fill-In-The-Blank Copywriting Scripts
