10 Steps to Advertising Success

Millions of people marketing on the Internet try to
grab the attention of all the rest daily. How does a
beginner, a "newbie", if you will, figure out how to
write an ad that pulls in responses?

First, do we even want to write our own ads, what with
the so-called tested ones that come with our affiliate
programs? The answer to that is, "Yes!" Your
individual ad writing ability can mean your ads get
noticed and leave the prewritten ones behind.

Here are 10 steps to writing ad copy that will work
for you and increase your profits immeasurably.

1. Narrow your market to a specific group of
prospective clients. Find your niche market.
2. Analyze your website. Does it appeal to your niche
market? If it does, tailor your ads to relate directly
to your website.
3. Appeal to the impulse in the viewers of your ad.
Call your readers to action * now*. Cause your readers to
click a link to your sales letter. Emphasize the benefits of
reading that letter. Offer something free in the ad itself,
"just for looking". Perhaps a free copy of your newsletter
or a free Ebook you've added to your site would do the
trick.
4. Use outside resources to create your ad.
Draw from sources like junk email and free classified
ads. Analyze the work of others. Notice ideas that
grab you and call you to action now.
5. Design "killer" headings. What types of headings
get more attention? Headings with all capital letters?
Headings that take up the entire heading

field of the ad?
Use caps sparingly for emphasis, and don't pile on words
just for length.
6. Avoid hype. Don't over sell your product or service,
discouraging your prospects even before they get to your site.
Relay your excitement about your product through your own
experiences, not unbelievable exaggerations.
7. Proofread. It's crucial to your success in ad writing,
and online generally. Check your spelling, grammar, and
punctuation. Be rigidly careful. Test links to make sure they
work *and * actually lead to the places you intend them to
go.
8. Test your ad for efficiency. You can't over-test. Use
your ad in many media, including the newspaper classifieds.
Track where your ad pulls from by using free or paid tracking
services that are out there. Look to your affiliate program for
good tips and instructions on ad tracking.
9. Keep a winning ad working for you. Keep submitting
it to new places. A few sales will never wear out a good ad.
10. Submit only to places where your target market will
be looking. This will save you time, money, and unwanted
attention from would be spammers.

Now promise yourself this: You're going to get your
ads noticed by writing them yourself and taking these
steps to advertising success.
