How to Write Great Website Copy
This is Emotional Direct Response Marketing (EDRM). Tactics
1. Talk first person as though in front of you
2. Identify the problem, compassion, know, feel
Some customer service would often say “I know how you feel” and oftentimes it’s just upfront but as a business, we got to be careful that we don’t slam them our customers. Show compassion.
3. Aggravate the problem— provoke action
4. Provide solution—this will fix problem
This is where we’re talking about branding yourself as an authority and you provide solution.
5. Answer every doubt, concern, fear
6. Be the logical choice/solution to problem
7. Relevant proof – back up every claim
This is where the testimonies and the evidence come in.
