Most people have got copywriting all wrong.
Most think that expert copywriters just sit down and bash out sales letters in an hour or so. That couldn't be further from the truth.
Usually the finished sales letter is the result of hours of background reading, half a dozen drafts, and a huge pot of coffee. Below you'll find one of the drafts I wrote recently.
It is not complete, nor is it polished.
However, it's about 80% of the way there, and uses copywriting principles that I learnt from the masters, like John Caples and Claude Hopkins.
This was what my client told me:
- This is a real offer, from a real company, based in the same city as his office, so he wanted to ensure it looked different to those ‘internet offers' (as he called them)
- Please address common objections in the letter (this was an actual mailed letter, so it cost money to send each one)
- Link to an online sales page
He ultimately chose a different version than this, but I still like this one for being punchy, gutsy and confident.
As ever, steal whatever you like the look of. No credit required.[thrive_text_block color=”light” headline=””]
