How to Write Great Sales Copy Fast
And how to do this? Well, I use the old fashioned method. First I just jot down what I want to say. The sentences might not be complete, they might be long, they might be not so clear. And then I rewrite it – and rewrite it – and I also read the text aloud to see if it flows, and if it has a good rhythm. So the art of writing short sentences is the art of giving your text time to mature. If you clearly understand what you want to say then it’s easy for you to find the right words – the most precise words – and to write short sentences. And to get your message through in a short period of time. Thank you for watching this video about how to write great sales copy. See you in the next video.
