  1. You need short and concise along with sufficient ad copy to allow everyone to make an informed decision. I rarely read a salesletter, web or written in its entirety anymore. I get too many of them, maybe I built a resistance to them. Maybe they have all become redundant being built on cookie cutter software packages designed to make the newbie write like a guru. Who knows, but I tend to skim. If the writer fails to inspire I am gone.
    Of course I have to also remember I am not my prospect. They are most likely not a student of direct response marketing. Therefore they may not be subscribing to as many list as I have and receiving 150-200 sales messages in their inbox each day.
    So what do we need to do as marketers?
    For me, the most successful marketing pieces revolved around a story. Or the story around the event. I would fill that story with several benefit laden subheads. Enough to make a bullet point sales pitch to people like myself whether through time constraints or ADHD have a short attention spans.
    The space between the subheads will be filled with enough copy to let people who got hooked into the story to have enough info to make a purchasing decision.
    Of course the whole thing is useless unless you ask people to buy. Most marketers lose me when they ask for the order at the end. I never get there. Sales 101 has you asking trial closes throughout the entire presentation to take the temperature of the prospect. Put in the trial close throughout the marketing piece.
    So whether you write in paper or on the web, you need to follow the concept that what you are doing is salesmanship in print. So start selling.
