Copywriting for Sales: You Can’t Bore People into Buying

There is no other skill that will reward you as richly as being able to write compelling words.

“Emotional direct response copywriting uses attention-grabbing headlines, strong sales copy and compelling calls to action. It’s what’s known as “salesmanship in print.” — Allan Dib

Using a boring, monotone professional sales copy is the fastest way of losing the interest of your customers and prospects.

People love authenticity, personality, and opinion. Even if they disagree with you, they’ll respect you for being real and open.

“People buy with emotions first and then justify with logic afterwards.” — Allan Dib

The five major motivators of human behaviour are:

  1. Fear
  2. Love
  3. Greed
  4. Guilt
  5. Pride

If your sales copy isn’t pushing at least one of these emotional hot buttons, then it’s likely too timid and ineffective.

Headlines are one of the most important elements in your sales copy.
