    43: Don't Bombard Your Audience With Needless Information

    43: Don't Bombard Your Audience With Needless Information

    Let’s get physical! Today we’re going to talk about the physical parts of your offer- i.e. anything tangible (think workbooks, swag, meal plans, etc) but also the modules of your digital courses. Essentially, anything that the client gains access to after they purchase your offer.
    But how much emphasis should you be placing on those tangible things in your sales copy? What should you be highlighting on your sales page and in your sales emails to emphasize the big picture results you’re promising? 
    In this episode, we’re going to take a closer look at:
    Why knowing your audience is critical  How taking into account their past experiences can help you in your offer Becoming more familiar with your audience helps you know exactly what parts of your offer you need to emphasize to get them to buy. Remember: you’re selling a possibility, and you don’t need to clutter that up with endless lists of all the things your clients will get. The desired transformation will look different for every customer, so paint them a broader picture, and let them fill in their own blanks.

    42: I Couldn’t Help but Wonder: Is Narrative Structure the Secret to Effective Sales Page Copy?

    42: I Couldn’t Help but Wonder: Is Narrative Structure the Secret to Effective Sales Page Copy?

    One of the most common mistakes I see in sales copy is a lack of narrative structure. Most of the time, this issue lives on the sales page. I’m not saying you need to weave an epic tale of love loss and adventure), but infusing key storytelling elements into the foundations of what you’re offering goes a long way in enlivening your copy and making it more likely to connect and convert. In this episode we’ll talk more about:


    Why a narrative structure is important in your copy
    How informative, engaging copy can save you time and energy

    Again, I’m not telling you to tell a tale worthy of an Oprah endorsement… but some well-crafted, compelling copy that reveals a bit more about YOUR story can go a long way in attracting clients. It makes you relatable, and makes your potential customer feel like they know you and can trust your intentions.

    41: Uncovering Your Unique Competitive Offer

    41: Uncovering Your Unique Competitive Offer

    Figuring out your offer differentiator is CRITICAL. It can really make or break your launch. Why are people going to choose YOUR offer if they don’t know why it’s better than all the other ones out there?
    In this episode we take a closer look at:
    How to identify the ways that your offer fills gaps that no one else does Ways to capitalize on that in your copy Making your program’s differences obvious for the client will go a long way, and reinforcing those differences on your sales pages and emails will drive your point home. 
    It also helps take the work out of the process for the buyer; their mind is made up before they even feel like they have to go look at an alternative program.

    39: Giving Your Audience The Info They Need to Say YES

    Sales objections are a tough thing to face, but you don’t have to handle them in a way that makes you feel…for lack of a better term…icky. In today’s episode, I’m giving my best pointers on how you can overcome objections in your sales copy in an empathetic and ethical way that you can feel GOOD about.
    You’re probably feeling hesitant to believe that it’s that easy. And I don’t blame you! But for what it’s worth, looking at objections from a different angle and understanding their validity also helps you understand that there’s a valid way to address them productively. 
    The specifics I discuss in this episode are:
    What are Buyer Objections? The Importance of Overcoming Objections Overcoming Objections to Spur a Deeper Connection Don’t let buyer objections intimidate you in 2022! Make this the year of conversions. Give your audience everything they need to get off the fence and say YES to what you have to offer.
