Is Your Mind Set To Say Yes To The Yes Set?

Yes SetNow there’s a title that makes you think, doesn’t it?

A great sales person knows how to sell to people whether face-to-face or on the phone. But how do you sell on paper or on a website?

Ultimately, running a business online means you want to sell something, right?

This is why you should learn ‘how’ to write persuasively. The better your sales copy, the more conversions.

Here’s a great technique that will persuade your audience to buy.

Let me ask you a question first. Answer it for yourself, and you don’t have to pull out your wallet.

Let’s say that you sell a digital video course worth $47 and you normally sell 100 copies per year. Would you be willing to pay $100 for a sales copy if you knew for sure it would boost your conversions by 10%?

Duh! The answer is “Yes, of course.”  You’d be selling 10 more copies at $47. You’d be a thief of your own wallet if you didn’t.

Fortunately, there is a very effective method that we can use to create more persuasive sales copy.

It is guaranteed that this technique will get you more conversions. I don’t want your money, but I do want you to make a tweet, a Facebook post,  or a Google+ post about this article. Fair enough?

10 Powerful Tips to Increase Readability

The impact of readability is highly underestimated. You get an instant advantage if your blog is more readable then those of your competitors.

You need your visitors to do three things in order to get a good website ranking and making your blog or emails more readable is going to help a lot.
