The Words On Your Website Make A
"MASSIVE" Difference That Will Either Compel Your
Potential Customer To Take Action Or Turn Them Away In Just A Few Seconds... So It's MUCH Better To
Use Words That Attract Customers - Here's How
These principles also apply to any
classifieds add you write, magazine advertisement, billboards and any written advert of any
the thing, if the words on your website don't
compel the reader, if they don't capture the reader and compel them to read on they are simply
going to hit the back button and you will loose them forever. That is bad news if you are paying
for PPC (Pay Per Click) On any of the search engines.
If you have
doubts then think about how many times you have hit the back button because a website didn't grab
you, interest you or make you feel like you will be missing out if you don't read
Here's a Real Life
example of two real advertisements
that were used for the lawn mowing and garden industry by a friend of
The first add
is the one my friend wrote and the second add I wrote.
The goal was
to mainly promote his new service that makes peoples lawns green and keeps them green. He also
wanted to attract more customers to his lawn mowing service.
Now I have
kept his details blank for privacy reasons but you will get the point after reading these two
first advert that he wrote and was not doing so well:
Here's the second advert I wrote that brought in a
ton of business:
Here's the results of both
1: This add cost
Adam just on $200 each time. Adam placed in his local paper five times a month which totals
$1,000 a month. He averages $80 a job and gets 12 to 15 jobs a month which at best for 15

- There's no compelling
- There's no reason why potential
customers should use Adams lawn mowing as opposed to Adam's
- There is no guarantee of any
- There's absolutely no benefits at
- And there is no call to
Adam is doing just what everyone else
does... he is advertising his name, what he does and his contact information... Nothing
more. Unfortunately this just doesn't cut it in the real
world and he diminishes his chances of gaining customers because his add is just not
So I sat down
with Adam and worked out an effortless and very easy plan which resulted in add number
2: Lets look at the
second add more closely - First add 2 has:
- A heading
and sub heading that grabs the attention of anyone who is looking to own a green
- It has
bullet points that outline what problems
- The add had another heading under the
bullet points that is FULL of benefits and a KILLER guarantee
- Lastly it has a really good call to
action which involves the customer making a phone call or making a website visit for a $50
If you were looking for someone to mow your lawns or
to make your lawns green again and you read both adds... which add do you think you would
