5 Copywriting Tips to Win More Customers

Writing Copy

Few businesses fully recognise the power of good copywriting.

A well-written sales script is very often THE difference between a conversion rate of 10% and a conversion rate of 0.0001%.

This is your opportunity to convince people to buy from you.

To explain to them why your product or service matters, and to hold their attention.

How do you do it? Here are five strategies that make a big difference.

1. Make Your Copy Clear and to the Point

“Vantage media uses innovative thought-leadership and a collaborative attitude to push forward into new frontiers! We provide cloud based solutions for small-to-medium businesses that want to see real change in their strategy and mindset.”

What’s wrong with this opening?

Simple: it doesn’t tell the audience what they need to know.

Specifically: is fails to communicate what your business does and why your audience should care!

Too often, we get caught up trying to “sound professional” or show off, and fill our content with jargon and nonsense.

In the worst case scenarios, you can come away from a homepage none-the-wiser as to what the business is actually offering or what it does!

Good sales copy and copywriting in general doesn’t deal in flowery language but rather communicates CLEARLY what the business does.

And it gets there quickly.

2. Use Storytelling

Storytelling is “SEO for the human brain.”

We are hardwired to respond well to stories: they engage us and keep us reading, and they motivate, inspire, and influence us.

If you want to make sure that people don’t leave your sales pitch halfway through, find ways to relate to it personally then create a narrative around it.

3. Split Testing Your Copy

A split test means creating two slightly different versions of your copy to see which one sells best.

This way, you can test different headers, different opening lines, etc.

This allows you to see what is actually working, rather than forming subjective opinions.

4. Add Social Proof

Including stats, figures, and quotes can make a big difference to your sales.

Not only does this back up what you’re saying and give you much more credibility.

It also creates social influence: people think that this is now what everyone is doing.

And when everyone else is doing something, we always want to get involved right away!

5. Find the Value Proposition

Most important of all, is to find the value proposition.

That means understanding what it is about your product that is going to drive sales.

This should mean finding the emotional hook and getting your audience to imagine how their life could be better as a result of buying from you.

You aren’t selling a fitness book: you’re selling an amazing, ripped body.

You aren’t selling an app that handles web design: you’re selling a more beautiful, modern, and efficient website.

You’re selling the dream of a successful business!

You need to understand this because it is ultimately emotion that drives sales.

Not logic.

Tap into your audience’s emotions and get them excited for the future you are offering!
