Marquel: Hey, what’s up, my friend? Marquel Russell here. Welcome to this brand new episode of The School of Client Attraction podcast.
In today's episode, I want to share with you some nuggets from a copywriting legend that you can apply to your business immediately and some proven advertising methods that have stood the test of time for probably hundreds of years probably at this point. Right? I want to share with you what these nuggets are and I'm going to share with you the book as well. But stick around to the end. I'm going to tell you what the book is and how you can get it also. Some of the nuggets I took away from it, number one is the power of a headline, why that's the most important piece of your advertising, and, two, the most powerful components of a powerful headline. [01:09.7]
Those two most powerful components, the most powerful headline has self-interests in it and combined with some kind of curiosity, so showing people how they get something specific out of it, that's number one, and also some kind of curiosity. So, how can you leverage some kind of unique mechanism that doesn't sound like everything else is going on? So, it creates some curiosity, but it also shows them a benefit to keep reading or to click, or to opt in or something like that. Okay? That's number one.
Number two—I’ve got it on my phone, so I'm looking at it right here. Number two, it says, remember that the reader, and I’ll add it, or the viewer, because right back then it was just like written copy and typing, and the beautiful thing is that we live in an amazing time to be alive. We can launch an ad today and be in front of people. We launched an ad earlier and, within an hour, we were already getting like clicks on the ad. [01:58.8]
Back then, they used to do mail order, so they would make an ad for a newspaper or a magazine or something like that, and then once they sent it out, they had to wait for people to respond in a way they’d respond. They just had to cut the advertising out of the magazine, get a stamp, go mail it back to receive the things they wanted. So, they didn't really know if an advertising campaign was working for maybe a week or two, all right, and so they didn’t even know they could scale or whatever. We are living in a time where we can press “go” on an ad and we're live. That's crazy. So, I had a view to make this, to modernize this thing.
So, it says, remember the reader or viewer’s attention is yours for only a single involuntary instant. They will not use up their valuable time trying to figure out what you mean. They will not. So, don't. So, I added on and I said, they will simply turn the page, keep scrolling or stop your videos. So, I closed it with be clear, not clever. Be direct. Be direct and not deep.
Most people are trying to be too clever in their marketing and too deep instead of just being clear, clearly communicating, clearly speaking to the benefit and showing people how they can get something from it. [03:07.2]
He also shared a quote by Mark Twain and Mark Twain said, spiders find businesses that don't advertise and they build webs on their doors, so they can live a life of peace. So, what is he talking about? Businesses that don't advertise, don't have to worry about anybody coming into their doors.
All right, so those are three powerful nuggets that you can immediately implement into your advertising to quickly get a lift. Okay. In the book, you're probably wondering, Okay, what is this book? The book is called time-tested advertising. It’s called Tested Advertising Methods and it's by John Caples, legendary copywriting expert that I highly recommend going and checking it out.
