Selling online is no different than selling in person…your main goal is to identify problems and provide a solution.

1. The first step is to get into your prospects head and figure out what their biggest problem is. Your challenge is to make your prospect recognize the problem and build on the emotion of their situation.

2. Go deeper and explain to them the main reasons that they haven’t been able to get rid of their problem. Also, talk about why prior attempts to solve the problem have failed.

3. Your next step is to make them imagine what their life will be like when that pesky problem is gone from their lives forever. Paint a rosy picture of how great life will be and how great they will feel in their newfound freedom.

4. It’s time to introduce your offer and differentiate it from the products or services that, prior to yours, gave them little or no results. Make your intro simple and to the point, concentrating on the main benefits rather than features of what your offering.

5. The last step is to have a clear and concise call to action. Don’t leave any doubt in your prospects mind as to what you want them to do.

Using this approach is what separates the ‘pros’ from the amateurs. Start every copywriting project with these easy to do steps and you’re definitely on your way to building a thriving online marketing business.
