Writing a sales letter is time consuming, stressful but very worthwhile especially if you make sales out of your sales letter.
Here are a few tips which should help you create a powerful successful sales letter:
Make every sentence you write clear, concise, easy to read and informative, don’t babble and don’t tell lies, describe what your product or service is and how it could benefit the end user.
Keep people interested, don’t make your sales letter too lengthy or else people will get bored and lose interest, keep it to the point and easy to read and digest.
Make your sales letter memorable, use hard hitting keywords that will reach and have an impact on your target audience and market. Sell the benefits not the features in every single word you write.
Read out your sales letter and get others to read, make sure they are able to understand what you are trying to sell after reading it once, if this is not possible then keep tweaking it until you get the desired results and effects.
Test out a few different sales letters, see which are the most successful and then implement these to advertise, promote, market and sell your business, product, service and so on.
Always set goals for your sales letter, create a plan as to what you want to include in the letter where and why, use this plan as a basis or guide for your letter, work around it, but remember it is there only as a guide, get across key points, facts and information that will all help you sell more.
Always add or incorporate a guarantee within your letter, for example a 30 day money back guarantee, as most people will not buy or even finish reading your letter if they cannot see a guarantee that ensures they get there money back if they are not happy with your product, offer or service. Guarantees are very important they help build trust and reassurance within the customers mind, they definitely help increase and make sales.
Read, read and re read your sales letter make sure it sounds like a letter to a friend or family member rather than a sales letter that just screams buy me now! People don’t like being forced into buying something so never write a pushy sales letter. Do inform your readers that your product, offer or service is only available for a limited time only, this will help customers make a decision and more than likely buy what you are selling.
