I was looking through some of my old copywriting books the other day in search of a little inspiration for a sales letter I was working on, but in the process I ended up stumbling on something even more powerful
…and what I discovered will teach you one of the most important lessons about copywriting I think you’ll ever come across.
Secrets that made me question everything I thought I knew about writing effective copy and forced me to deep dive into dozens of books, hundreds of swipe files, and thousands of words of copy in order to confirm if what I found was true, and to see if there were any more clues, patterns, or phrases that ALL of the best copywriters in the world used and swore by to help make them richer than they could have ever even imagined.
And I couldn’t believe it when I discovered … .that they did.
All of them used the same hacks, every time.
So in this video I’m going to show you what those hacks were, how you can use them in your copy, and how to use them to grow any business you apply them to.
So, let me show you how it’s done.

First person to reach the South Pole While both eventually succeeded in Reaching the South Pole the two Explorers experienced wildly different Outcomes on their return Journeys back To the safety of base camp the first red Amonson a Norwegian Explorer succeeded The second Robert Falcon Scott a British Naval officer died tragically along with Five other members of his team both men Were equally capable equally equipped And equally experienced on paper they Each had an even chance to accomplish Their goals and survive so what happened Why did one succeed and the other fail And more importantly what does this have To do with copyrighting and marketing And making more sales the answer to this Question and the secret behind our Explorer success and failure as well as Your future success or failure as a Copywriter can be found in the following Word sequence in any given situation There are a number of things that need To be done in order to accomplish the Goal in the case of our explorers both Had a strategy to place Depot to restock Supplies along their path but only Amon Ensured they were placed in the right Sequence and were as easy to find as Possible as well as stocked with Sufficient supplies if we look at a Copywriting or direct response marketing Campaign for example well the first
Thing you need to do is determine Exactly what you're trying to promote From there you need to decide what kind Of customers you want to attract or what Target segment to go after then it's Time to figure out the message this part Is incredibly important so that's what The rest of this video is about because It's here that you're going to lay out The specifics around the offer and Messaging that will allow you to clearly Communicate the value that you're Offering and why someone should care Enough to actually take action but Simply knowing what the steps are isn't Enough you need to know the right order And the right sequence that they go in Like baking a cake things need to be Done in the right order otherwise you Just end up frosting an empty cake pan Or serving your friends a raw uncooked Puddle of cake soup uh yeah I'm uh I'm Not going to eat that and this is why The next thing I need to show you is why You must always write your first draft On sticky Notes In the world of copyrighting and direct Response marketing there is perhaps no Bigger name than Agora a truly Fascinating and polarizing billion dooll Publishing company that generates Anywhere from 20 to $50 million a week Through the sale of its newsletters
Books and information products and one Of agora's most valuable copyrighting Secrets was shared in a little known and Hard-to find book called The Secret copy Boarding system a system I've used for Years now and that has indeed held up to Its promise of helping me to write copy That's generated millions of dollars in Sales and I found this technique to be Useful not just for sales letters but Also emails social media posts sales Pages webinars pretty much anything else You can think of the best part is that It gives you a structured and Streamlined system to follow ensuring That you present your idea well with one Convincing argument leading perfectly Into the next so here's how it Works the first step is to come up with Your big idea this is what makes your Offer different unique special for Example I'm not just telling you a Copyrighting technique here I'm sharing With you a multi-million dollar Fill-in-the blank outline step two is to Do an objection audit this is where you Want to list out on sticky notes all of The possible objections someone might Have against the claim or the big idea That you're making the big ones here are Typically something like why should I Listen to you and what's in it for me Does this actually work how are you any Better than your competition and why
Should I act now but don't stop there Try to list out as many objections as Possible step three is to then organize These objections in the order that a Customer is likely to experience them From start to finish for example if your Big idea is the claim that you just Discovered a revolutionary new system That's allowing business owners to Generate 300 new leads for just $1 a day Then the first objection is likely to be Something like that's not possible or That sounds like too much work the next Objection from there could be okay but Why don't I just do XYZ instead and from There all kinds of other objections Could arise like it sounds like too much Work and the infamous sales killer okay But I'm too busy right now the power and Importance of writing these all out on Sticky notes cannot be overstated here As it's the visual element of Reorganizing your arguments that makes It compelling presenting each point Strategically and sequentially in the Order they're likely to arise in the Customer for example nobody's going to Think it's too expensive as the first Objection before they even know what it Does how it works or what it even costs So thinking things through this way Helps make sure you're not bombarding Your reader with ir relevant information Way too early in the process step four
Is where things start to get at least in My opinion pretty fun because it's here That you're going to overcome each Objection by rewriting that objection as A benefit-driven subheading sounds Totally confusing though let me explain What that means let's say that we've Figured out the first few objections we Want to overcome and have arranged them In this order first that sounds like too Much work second okay but why don't I Just do XYZ instead third it's too Expensive and fourth I'm too busy right Now well sticking with our or original Example of an offer that's claiming to Be a revolutionary new system that's Allowing business owners to generate 300 New leads for just $1 a day that sounds Like too much work objection turns into A subheading like effortlessly integrate Our system into your business in less Than a day the okay but why don't I just Do XYZ instead objection turns into our System is proven to outperform XYZ by 200% it's to expensive turns into invest A dollar gain a fortune and I'm too busy Right now turns into in the time it Takes you to read this you could be Generating 300 New Leads or too busy to Succeed not anymore step five then is to Fill out the rest of the body copy using The Cppb loop which stands for claim proof Proof proof benefit the first part
Claims are easy to make you just say Something true about your product or Service that relates to the subheading Proof is easier to find than ever before Thanks to the internet and the ability To get your hands on research and Articles as well as easily reach out to Customers and benefits too are Straightforward enough to come up with You just ask yourself what are the Advantages and outcomes or how is the Customer going to be better off Afterwards thanks to your offer copy Boarding is a powerful tool and a good Step towards making sure you hit all of Your persuasion points and don't go off On any irrelevant or confusing tangents That will most assuredly lose you sales That said it still misses answering a Few important questions like where and When should you talk about guarantees Bring up pricing bonuses and the all Important call to action all important Elements that are necessary to guide a Reader persuasively through your sales Copy and make sure that they end up at The end pumped primed ready to buy so Next I'll walk you step by step through A complete sales page template and Blueprint that'll make writing High Converting copy faster and easier than Ever Before imagine for a second that you Woke up one morning and found yourself
