The importance of a call-to-action in your sales copy

.
Do you make this mistake in your sales and marketing copy?

There are several key ingredients necessary for any sales copy to succeed.

And I’m talking about sales copy in…

.
They all need…

  • A powerful, attention-getting headline
  • Subheads that guide the reader
  • A provocative opening to get people to read
  • Sales copy that’s not boring
  • Proof with customer testimonials
  • And a kick-butt offer

But even if sales copy does include all these… there’s still one major blunder most marketers make.

And it’s a biggie! And it’s crucial to a marketing piece’s chance for success!

Making sure to include a Call to Action!

You gotta tell your readers what to do, because if you don’t guide them, they won’t do anything.

It could be as simple as “Call 1-800-111-1111 to get your free CD”, “Sign up for your free newsletter”,

Or you can tell them to come into your store before 12-22-11 and get your 25% discount.

Literally spell it out for them… but tell ‘em what you want them to do next.

So put a call to action in your next ad or letter, and watch your results soar.
