Direct Response Copywriting Tips From The Dating World

Face it.

When it comes to dating, looks matter.

Or, at least, how you present yourself matters.

If someone doesn’t find you attractive to look at, nine times outta ten, they’re never gonna go out with you.

Blunt? Yes.

But truthful? Absolutely.

And here’s the thing…

When it comes to your sales copy, or any copy for that matter, it’s the same principle.

You see, when it comes to writing high-converting copy, your first task is this:

Make sure your ideal prospect reads it.

That’s it.

After all, if they don’t read it, they’re not gonna buy from you. Just like it doesn’t matter how great your personality is, if someone doesn’t find you attractive, they’re not gonna go out with you.

How To Get More People Reading Your Copy

I get it.

You’re probably worried. You’re thinking, “How on earth do I make sure my ideal prospects read my copy?”

It’s a good question. And there’s a couple of things you need to do.

1. Write A Great Headline


I could spend hours going over sales headlines. They’re vital.

But, because I’ve written other posts showing you how to write great sales letter headlines, I’m not gonna cover it in much detail here.

Though I will say this:

You must know your market.

You have to know what problems they’re facing. You have to know their pain points. You have to know what drives them.

If you do, then writing headlines isn’t difficult.

Though if you don’t?

Then your headline’s probably gonna suck.

Moving on.

2. Make Your Copy Easy-On-The-Eye

Here’s where the dating comparison comes into play.

If your copy isn’t “attractive” to look at, then people aren’t gonna read it.

And why should they? They’re busy. In their minds, they have far more important things to do with their time.

Plus there’s so many distractions around; Facebook, Google, smartphones, t.v, you name it.

Distractions everywhere.

And if people take one look at your copy and think, “that looks hard to read,” then I’ve got news for ya:

They’re not gonna read it.


Why People Ignore Great Copy

“But my copy’s AMAZING!” I hear you cry.

“And it’s something that will really benefit my prospects. Surely they will read it even if it isn’t appealing on the eye, won’t they?”

Let me be straight:

No they won’t.

Remember, in the dating world, someone’s gotta find you attractive to look at before anything else matters.

Sure, personality comes into play. Heck, in the long run, it’s way more important than looks. But people judge looks first.

Anyway, you need to see your written words as the “personality” part of your copy. They’re vital – but only after people have judged the “look” of your copy, first.

So how do you make your sales copy look appealing?

First, when writing online, use page margins. Don’t let your copy fill the whole screen.

White space is attractive. It makes things easy to look at. And you’ll get more readership.

Second, again when writing online, use short paragraphs. 1-3 sentences. Like this one.

And the third thing you can do?

Use Sub-Headings


Couple of reasons.

The first is from a pure “looks” stand-point. It helps create more white space. And it makes things easier to read.

However, there’s actually another reason you want to use sub-heads in your copy. And if you’re not already doing so, this is gonna be a game-changer.


Good. You should be.

Anyway, most people won’t actually read your copy word-for-word. Instead, they skim it. They want to get to the main point to make sure your message is relevant to them.

And that’s a problem.

Why? Because you want your prospects to devour every last word of your copy, in the same way a Monk would the Bible.

But fear not, ye squire.

There is a way around this. And it’s where sub-heads come into play.

See, you need your sub-heads to sum up the story you are trying to tell the reader, because when people skim through your copy, they’ll read the sub-heads.

Then, if they like what they see, they’ll likely go back and read the whole thing.

Meaning you can get your whole sales message across in all its glory.

But if your sub-heads don’t sum up your story, then your reader won’t have any real idea as to what you’re selling, how it works, and why he should buy it.

And they’ll just click the “x” at the top of the page. Goodbye potential customer.

Introducing Mauritius

One captivating island that is not yet discovered by a lot of people is Mauritius Island. Although not as popular as the other islands in the world, Mauritius has its own promise of enchantment you would not want to miss.

Mauritius is an island in the Indian Ocean. It is located off the coast of Africa and lies east of Madagascar. Long before it was named after Prince Maurice, who was the Prince of Orange and Count of Nassau, it were the Arab traders who set foot on this island back in the 10th century.
