How to Write Killer Advertising that
Practically Forces People to Respond

By Terry Dean

Stop a moment some day and look at the kind of advertising you see in your mailbox, on your computer, on the radio, etc. Look at it and think, "Would I buy this or not?" If you say "No," then ask yourself why. If you say "Yes," then ask yourself why. What is it that makes this ad attractive or what is it that this personís offer unattractive. Do this regularly and you will start surprising yourself with what you will notice about advertising.

Most advertising you see today is written extremely poorly. It confuses the prospect, doesnít paint a desired picture in their mind, doesnít give a reason to order now, and focuses on features, not the benefits. Most failed businesses can be tracked back to poor advertising, although there are many other reasons for failure.

If you want to stay in business, you must learn how to advertise effectively and how to produce orders NOW! This is what we will be working on in this manual, so be prepared to change your advertising and to fill your mailbox with orders!

There is a creative money making genius on the inside of you. You just need to learn how to let it out. What we will cover in this short report is the purpose of advertising and the 12 Advertising Secrets you will need to know to become an effective advertiser.

No matter what business you do whether it be a small retail store, a consulting service, a house cleaning service, or a mail order business, you must learn to create advertising that gets results. If you donít, your business will be painful and short-lived.

First of all, let us look at the two major (And different) reasons for advertising. Number one is for exposure. Most television commercials and many newspaper ads and magazine ads are made for this purpose.

The Advertiser wants their name exposed to the public and for the viewer to think of them next time they are ready to make a purchase. Major corporations are the ones who will do this kind of advertising. They have the budget to constantly expose their name to the public and wait for their orders to come as people become more used to them and their advertising.

The type of advertising you and I are interested in is completely different. It is called direct response advertising. In other words, we are advertising and are motivating our readers to order now, to call our 800 number and order, mail us a coupon and order, or fax in an order. We advertise a product and service and seek for people to make purchases now. As a small or home business, a quick way to go bankrupt is to place full page ads without asking for an order NOW! You must cause the person to order today if you want to stay in business in any type of display advertising or direct mail.

Classifieds are of a little different nature, but they work on the same premise. You donít ask for a sale right from the classified (Which would be a large mistake because there just isnít enough room in a classified to make sales). Even asking for one dollar in a classified ad reduces your response greatly. You will have them call your 800 number voicemail or your fax-on-demand in which they will receive an offer and a chance to order NOW! In all advertising, you must ask for the order NOW or get out of business!

Many people have contacted me and said, "I know that I have a wonderful product, but I just canít figure out why I am not getting any orders." You may be the same way. Let me tell you a simple truth, It does not matter how awesome your product line is if your advertising doesnít cause people to see themselves using it and how it will benefit them. Your advertising, not your product in many cases, will determine the success or failure of your business. Yes, Your product needs to be awesome (Or you will experience a large number of refund requests and a short-lived business), but your advertising will make or break your business.

Before we spend too much time detailing why you should create awesome ads, let us just simplify the whole deal. You want your business to make money? Then, write money-grabbing ads!

Now, Let us reveal 12 of the major advertising secrets you will need to know and begin using in every ad you create:

1) Testing, Testing, Testing

In all advertising and mail order, the biggest key of long-term success is Testing everything. Test your ads. Test your sales letters. Test you products. Test the publications. Test everything. You will never be done. Learn to key all of your order forms and phone numbers to make sure you know which ad and publication is doing what. Donít ever leave anything to chance. Test everything. Great Advertisers and Mail Order Millionaires are people who have tested everything and have found what works. Your testing period will NEVER end!

2) Strong Headlines

The number two key to success is your headlines. You must understand that the wording of your headline is more than 70% of the effectiveness of your advertising. That means it is a BIG DEAL what your headline says. A note that needs to be added. In mail order, it has been our experience that Negative headlines often Out pull positive headlines. For example, one of the most popular and effective headlines in network marketing has been "Dead Downlines Donít Lie!"

Negative headlines force your prospect to identify with them saying, "That sounds like me. The main purpose of the headline is to GRAB their attention, so your headline must be attention grabbing and prospect focused. What are their needs? What are their Desires? What are their Fears? Pay attention. The upcoming secrets must be used when writing your headline also, not just your body. HEADLINES WILL MAKE OR BREAK YOUR ADVERTISING CAREER!

3) Short Words, Short Sentences, Short Paragraphs

Forget what your grammar teacher taught you in high school. When writing ads, you must make your ads simple: Simple to Understand & Simple to Order. Keep the level of writing 8th grade or lower. Use Short Words, short sentences, and short paragraphs. I know your literature teacher told you to not write paragraphs with only two sentences in them, but how much money did he/she ever make in advertising? The moment you confuse your prospect, their attention and the sale disappears!

4) Be Specific, Not General

Be specific in all of your advertising. Donít Say "Fill Your Mailbox with Cash." Say "Receive Up to $355 a day in your Mailbox Daily." Donít Say "Secrets to Making Money." Say "63 Year Old Man Tells You His Dirty Secrets to Making $578 a day!"

Being specific makes your advertising more believable. Being general makes your prospects say "He is just making this up." Being specific makes them say, "He must have counted it. I want to make that much."

Donít say "Fill your Downline with Distributors." Say "Add Up to 15 New Distributors a month to your downline." You get the idea now, donít you. Donít ignore the fact that Being Specific will beat being general every time. Go over your advertising copy and edit it to become specific.

5) Use Your Background & Be Unique, Not A Me-Too Ad

So many ads out there today are for just me-too products and me-too advertising. When I say "Me-Too Advertising," I mean that these ads or products have been so overused that they just donít pull anymore. People are tired of them. For example, People are tired of hearing how much more your network marketing company pays than the one on the other page. They are tired of hearing about how your products are the best in the industry. They have heard that story before.

You need to become Unique in your approach. Are you elderly? Are you Young? Are you Deaf? Are you bald? Did you flunk out of school? Do you only have an 8th grade education? Put something of yourself into the ad. A bald man could write an ad saying, "57 Year Old Bald Man Grows Dollar Bills Faster than Men Half His Age Grow Hair!" Be unique. Find something about yourself that is unique and put it into your advertising. Let people know who you are, then they will begin to trust you, and Trust spells orders.

6) Use Pronouns (I, You, He, She)
