    • London | 20–24 Feb, 2012 | #seslondonCopywriting for ConversionDr Karl BlanksChairman (and Resident Rocket Scientist)
    • What you’ll get from this talk 1 Proven strategies for increasing sales 2 A template for ensuring your writing is effective 3 How to get someone else to do it for you
    • Step 1: Become able to sell the product face to face
    • Your robot salesperson will be no better than its creator
    • Mental shopping list This site looks relevant—like it will provide what I’m looking for (i.e. will satisfy my visitor intention). I believe that this is the best site of its type, so I won’t be considering the competitors, (which include doing nothing and ordering offline). I can easily find what I’m looking for I understand which product is best for me, because the site makes clear recommendations. I believe that this type of product is what I need. I believe that this particular product is what I need. I believe the claims that the site is making, about the company and about the products, because they’re supported with proof. All of my miscellaneous product-specific objections have been overcome I found the whole experience pleasurable, and I’d happily do it again.
    • Don’t start writing until..  You know everything about the product  You have bought and used the product with your own money  You can understand why people buy it  You could sell it to yourself or friends  You know all the objections and have great counter-objections  You have gathered proof to support all your claims
    • Step 2: Write it down
    • The act of writingturns many a genius into a moron
    • Write like a human
    • Use at least as many words as you’d use when selling face to face
    • Be concise

    • Five most important aspects
    • 1. The “angle”
    • With your permission, I am going to makean analysis of the soil of your lawn todetermine—at my own risk and expense—what elements are lacking in it, what youneed for stronger, healthier, more closelygrown turf.
    • Angles Main benefits—and how they’ll be reached with certainty and ease For inevitable, high-risk sales: The perils of making a mistake Entering the conversation that’s already going on in the prospect’s mind  How to buy X  How to choose between vendors  The guarantee  The offer  The proof  The urgency  Anything else from the mental shopping list
    • 2. The things that get looked at first
    • 3. The offer(s) and calls to action
    • 4. The weakest aspects
    • 5. The proof
    • Outsourcing or delegating your copywriting Someone with a track record of getting wins Ensure each change is split tested Ensure the person follows this process Need someone who can  sell (would you buy from them?)  write (can you understand what they write?)
