Address your ad to a typical customer.

Each sentence or paragraph must be aimed at that typical shopper. So many ads are not motivation enough to tell the consumer what he needs using a profile of what is necessary. Write down the profile of the customer and emphasis when writing your ad. Make sure that you don’t miss what the patron wants as opposed to what you as the seller wants.

There must be a feeling of urgency for the buyer.

Tell your customer, “You need the product today because it will make you reach your goals.” Don’t tell your customer tomorrow; they must buy today! Urgency! Study how successful ads make the customer act now.

There must be a list of benefits.

Will you be smarter using the product? Or richer, or healthier, or faster? Focus on the client, not the advertiser. Most benefits are skillfully integrated into the ad. IT IS A WASTE OF TIME AND SPACE IN AN AD if you don’t work in benefits.

The customer must be told what to do.

Tell your customer to order now. So many ads assume that the customer will guess to write, email, or telephone for the information, or product. They may because publication ads charge by the word, but on the internet you have more words. Tell the customer what to do. Provide the customer on how to respond today in several ways.
