Teach Yourself Copywriting: The Main Ingredient For Copywriting That Makes Money Instantly

Aug 18, 2007
Copywriting should not be difficult.
Copywriting should make money.
Copywriting should be emotional.

Why? Emotions are strong. Emotions are what drive sales. Emotions, with the right understanding and argument, can be directed, molded, and shifted in your favor.

Plain and simple emotions will make more sales than logic ever could. It's what drives us. It's what we crave and feel.

Dictionary.com defines emotion as:

A mental state that arises spontaneously rather than through conscious effort and is often accompanied by physiological changes; a feeling: the emotions of joy, sorrow, reverence, hate, and love.

and they define "emotional" as:
...appealing to the emotions.

When you learn to write copy that appeals to one's emotions (emotional copywriting), then you will instantly get more of your prospects and customers to do whatever you want them to do. Sign up for a free report, buy a product, or make a referral.

When you write copy that taps into the emotion of the person reading it, you make a connection with the reader. It is with this connection that you are able to control the mood and their actions. It is with this connection that you are able to obtain influence over the decisions that your prospects and customers make.

You can do this without the prospect even knowing what's happening. If you noticed in the definition above, emotions arise spontaneuosly without conscious thought. The key to writing effective emotional copy is "understanding your reader". You must understand your reader. You should know as much about them as you can.

What does this mean? Well, first of all, it means that you should be targeting a specific market and have a picture of them in your mind when you are writing your copy. It also means that you should use your understanding of them to enter the conversation that the reader is already having when they start to read your copy, and use this understanding to create empathy.

It is with empathy that your connection and influence are solidified.

...And when you combine emotion with direct response advertising and marketing, you have a powerful combination that brings in instant leads, sales, and profits.

Learning how to connect with your readers' emotions is the first step to teaching yourself copywriting. Emotional direct response marketing is the easiest and most effective way of writing copy. Learn the secrets of this, and you will discover a world of success in your small business that you never thought was even possible.
