What is this one thing that practically any webmaster can do - today -
dramatically increase the conversions he gets from his
website? Learn to
write better copy!
I know, you're saying, 'I knew that Willie, but writing copy is hard.'
I've talked to some very high paid copywriters, and I've read what many
to say. I own complete copywriting workshops on audio and videotape.

Some actually teach that you take a winning sales letter or ad, and you
out over and over. In the process of writing good copy over and over -
hundreds of times, you begin to get a feel for the flow. Soon
you see the
patterns. Soon the things that the high-priced copywriters are doing
jump out at you.
This is the secret to doing a lot of things by the way.
Repetition is the
mother of mastery. So you develop or copy a system, and then
you do it the
same way, over and over again. Soon it becomes a part of you. That's
how I have
practiced karate for over 20 years, and that's how you master

There are some basics that are universals in good copywriting though

system that I recommend to all of my private coaching
clients. It breaks
things down for you into a simple, easy to follow, 32-step,
One of the things you must remember in all of your copywriting is to
benefits to your buyer rather than product features. Make a
list of every
feature that you can think of, and then take every item on that list
and turn it
into a benefit. So, for
example, 'available for download in PDF format' becomes 'instant
that you can use these killer techniques within minutes.' Do
every feature. Turn it into a benefit that the customer *cares* about.
Many copywriters teach that people respond better to moving
away from pain
than they do to moving towards pleasure. So your copy should make the
aware of the pain he is in. For example, point out that without website
visitors, nobody sees his website, and he just sits and waits, with
no sales. Then
go on to point out how your product solves that problem for him.
Notice I said 'to him.' What I mean there is that your copy
needs to read
as if you are speaking directly to the reader. You are not
writing for an
audience of many. It's individuals that make decisions and you must
with the individual. It may help to imagine that individual sitting
you. Some copywriters actually have a photo of their ideal
hanging on the wall across from them as they works. This keeps them
'who' they are 'talking' to.
Have a guarantee that embodies complete risk reversal. All of the risk
transaction should be on you. Your prospect should feel that there is
no way he
can loose. I do this with a full, one year, no-questions-asked,
guarantee. That conveys that you know your product is good enough that
deliver tremendous value. You should convey that if you don't deliver,
demand that the customer ask for his money back, and he gets to keep
or gets something extra for his trouble.
With guarantees, also avoid time-frames that are too short. If you only
your customer 2 weeks to decide whether or not he likes your software,
quickly decide that he probably doesn't. If he's like me, he
downloads it into a folder on his computer and may not even get to look
at it in
those two weeks. Give you customer time to feel ownership of the
product and to
see the benefit of using it.
Alex Mandossian teaches that you should also 'teach your prospect to
product.' You can do this with follow-up emails that point out how to
most out of the software, or some type of training. If the customer is
benefiting from your product, he is going to keep it!
Use testimonials. Having someone else say how great your product is
tremendous credibility. Having someone 'just like your prospect' saying
great your product is shows your prospect that he too can benefit from
Use testimonials from someone your prospect can relate to as well as
testimonials from recognized experts or authorities.

example, if you want him to click on the link and use your secure order
tell him that. If you want him to print out the order form, fill it in,
and fax it to you, tell him that. Don't make them guess what
they need to
do. People like to be told/reassured that they are doing it correctly.
The other thing you seldom see discussed is 'the offer.' You literally
make the customer an offer that he would be crazy to refuse. This is a
balance though. If you make the offer too good, then the customer
it's so good. For example, if you offer too many bonuses, that conveys

Bob Serling, one of the greatest copywriters I have studied has an
course on web copywriting. It's one of the few that I have studied that
