Eliciting Emotion In Your Copywriting

We’re going to address the factor of emotions in copywriting; copywriting being the text of your frontline marketing materials whether it be a direct marketing campaign or a direct mail campaign. Whatever it may be, emotions and addressing emotions can be very important. When you’re writing copy there are several things you want to factor in and dominate resident emotion is one of those things that should be a front lying factor. Emotions help people make buying decisions; people buy from an emotional aspect so you want to tap into that appropriately to sell your product or service.

If we look at the information for today, what dominate resident emotion do you want to evoke? Frustration? Happiness? Whatever emotion it may be that is related to the problem that you are trying to solve with your product or service. It can be a good experience or a negative experience. There could be a mix of emotions depending on how long your marketing piece is. Understand that has a very front lying part of your marketing piece. The copywriter that you’re going to hire should understand how to tap into emotions.

Not only do you want to tap into their emotions, you want to use emotional trigger words for that emotion. There are words that will hone into that emotion even more or initiate an emotion that you want to communicate to that particular audience. You also want to savor that emotion in order to persuade them to make an emotional buying decision.

It’s very cut, dry and to the point when talking about emotions. Your product or service needs to provide the resolution to a problem they may have or want. You want to tap into that desire.

Marketing Truths: Capture And Correspond With Your Community

Good morning, this is Granison Shines, CMO at Direct Business Marketing. We’re going to continue discussing marketing truths; marketing truths being the truths that we’ve extracted and use over every single campaign that we launch for our clients. We took a look at our business and what makes us successful and extracted a few different ones that we’re going to continuously go over so that you can capitalize on them.

We’re going to talk about capturing and corresponding with your community. With your business, you must build your list, which means you need to build a list of clients and prospects. Invest in a good email system or a CRM system that has the ability to create web forms so that we can put those on your website. That’s what we use to capture their information. Number two, send out non-sales emails to build your community. Offer very good information, which I can’t emphasize enough; we don’t always want to ask for the sale. It’s a good idea to build the trust within your community. Number three, you have to ask if there are built-in social communities for the people you are targeting. These are groups that you can join, market to, and that they belong to. You want to position your marketing in front of those groups. These communities are ones that you can tap into, give information, demonstrate your expertise and build your products and services later on. Finally, community equals value equals sales; if you have a community of people that you deliver valuable information to them, this equals sales.

If you have the value-added proposition, preferably for free, it can equal sales. You do have to be diligent about it meaning providing good information should be a constant. We do want the sale, but we’ve proven over the life of our campaigns that this works. When you provide information to a community of people it equals sales.
