When You're Trying to Write, but Just Can't Start: How to Write the First Few Paragraphs

Don't you hate it when you're supposed to write some content for your business, but you just can't figure out what to say in the first few sentences? One of the biggest challenges for a writer is knowing where and how to start. I've noticed this in my capacity both as a marketing copywriter and a novelist - sometimes, the first scene or paragraph is the hardest. This challenge stems partly from the fact that the first sentences are the most important. They're the ones that help your readers to decide whether or not to keep reading,... Read More

Do Your Clients Think They Don't Need Your Product?

Are you selling something your clients know they want? Or are you offering a cure for a disease they don't know they have? A little while ago, I was scrolling through my Twitter feed, and I came across this gem from Calvin and Hobbes: It reminded me of a recent conversation I'd had with one of my clients when I suggested that she change the name of a chapter in her course. Why did I want her to change it? Because her potential clients don't know that they need the mindset she was describing. And if they don't know they need... Read More

One Selling Point You Should NOT Use in Your Marketing

When you're describing your product and how it helps your clients, there's one "selling point" that you should seldom or never use: "Why you should/shouldn't X". Seriously, this is a sale-killer. "Why you should never do __"... "why it's vital to __ after each meal"... "why every business needs __"... those are all examples of phrases that DON'T belong in your emails, sales pages, blog posts, and other marketing materials. Why is "why you should/shouldn't" such a bad phrase? I'm going to be a hypocrite for a minute here, and... Read More

A Harsh Truth Every Business Owner Needs to Understand

When I teach people how to describe their services, or when I write their materials for them, I often end up having to tell them a certain harsh truth: Unless they know you personally, your potential clients probably don't care about the things you care about. You know these things are important. I know they're important. But your clients don't know, and therefore, they don't care. At least, not until you give them a reason to care. Here are three things your clients don't care about as much as you might think. 1. Your... Read More

How to Concentrate For Long Periods Without Getting Distracted

In today's distraction-packed world, it can be a challenge to focus on one task for a protracted period of time. You're just getting into the groove, your train of thought is leaving the station, and you're ready to be productive... and then an email comes in, someone messages you on Facebook, or you think of something else that has to be done, and the next thing you know, you've lost half an hour. Now, not only are you behind schedule, but you're wasting even MORE time on mentally kicking yourself! This challenge comes up a lot in... Read More

Avoid Losing Leads by Using the Scavenger Hunt Principle of Marketing

Are you giving your leads the best possible chance of becoming customers, or are you needlessly losing them somewhere along the way? The answer to that question partly depends on how well you use the "Scavenger Hunt" principle when creating your sales funnel. What is the Scavenger Hunt principle? As kids - or as adults - you may have played a game where one person made and hid a series of clues, and the others had to find them. Each clue led to the location of the next clue. Sometimes, if you were lucky - or unlucky, depending... Read More

´╗┐Should You Outline Your Marketing Materials, or Fly by the Seat of Your Pants?

For every writer, whether in the field of fiction or nonfiction, there's an important question that needs to be asked: "Should I outline my material before I write it, or fly by the seat of my pants?" If you write blog posts, web pages, articles, video scripts, sales pages, training programs, courses, or ebooks for your business, this question will probably come up for you. Both methods have their merits. Flying by the seat of your pants - or "pantsing", to use a more concise and funnier-sounding term - allows for a greater degree of... Read More
