7 Recent Posts On Copywriting You Don’t Want To Miss Out On

1549986

If you want to become great at writing persuasively, then you’ll need to improve your craft regularly.

If you don’t exercise enough, you’ll lose muscle and your stamina decreases. It’s the same with your writing skills.

Reading books and blog content is one of the ways I keep improving myself. I come across some amazing content from all around the web.

I realized I’ve never created a round-up post like this, so I think you’ll appreciate what I’ve put together for you today.

So, are you ready to jump into these 7 recent blog posts on copywriting that I think you shouldn’t miss out on?

1. The Biggest Lie In Copywriting by Peter Boyle

In this post, Peter challenges the idea that copywriters are primarily artists and says that instead, we’re more like scientists.

He distinguishes 2 types of copywriting: direct response and creative brand advertising and explains the one problem with the latter…

You’ll also find helpful guidelines for scientific copywriting and discover the one mistake few avoid.

2. How to Nurture Empathy for Your Readers (and Craft Messages That Resonate) by Henneke Duistermaat

If you’ve read my previous post, this quote by Robert Collier might sound familiar:

“Study your reader first – your product second. If you understand his reactions and present those phases of your product that relate to his needs, then you cannot help but write a good letter”. – Robert Collier

One of my favorite writers, Henneke Duistermaat, makes a solid case for empathy in this post. She also mentions that it is not a technique. You can’t sprinkle your sales letter with a little empathy here and there. Nope, doesn’t work like that…

If you want to discover what empathy truly means in the business context, I recommend you read this post.

3. A Scammy Insurance Company Prompted Me to Action—Against My Will by Chelsea Baldwin

If you want to get a good impression of the true power of copywriting, read this post. Chelsea calls this a *rant* — and it is! However, this short but powerful post will suck you right in and leave a strong impression on you…

My heart skipped a beat by just reading the copy, even though it wasn’t personally addressed to me. It’s the perfect example of unethical marketing wrapped up in a good story.

4. 10 Classic Copywriting Books for Results-Driven Content Marketers by Demian Farnworth

If you want to dive deep into the rabbit hole that is called copywriting, these are 10 classic books you should put on your to-read list.

I have personally read multiple books listed in this post, including Influence and Ogilvy on Advertising. And you know what? They all massively increased my knowledge and skill level. Trust me. You can’t go wrong with these books.

But for now, let’s move on to the next post…

It’s hard to find a solid resource on storytelling out there one the dark and confusing web. Well, guess what? The drought is over, because this month I’m going to share not one, but two fantastic articles on storytelling!

5. Storyhacking: Cracking the Code Behind the Irresistible Selling Power of Stories by Alaura Weaver

You’ve probably heard it many times: you need to start telling stories! 

You know how persuasive stories can be, but you just don’t know enough to start creating them yourself.

I may have touched on storytelling here and there, but it’s nothing compared to this monstrous (yet elegantly executed) 7000+ word post by Alaura on Copy Hackers.

Grab a drink, relax…and enjoy the read!

6. 5 Steps To Transform Your Personal Stories Into Sales Machines by April Dykman

If the Copy Hackers post left you a little overwhelmed, you’re gonna love this fantastic resource written by April Dykman.

In this post, you’ll discover a simple formula and loads of actionable tips you can use to start telling stories today.

I recommend you read both articles on storytelling because they complement each other perfectly.

7. The 7-Step Formula for Writing Copy That Sells by Eddie Shleyner

The previous post and this post are written in the same fasion. Each element is explained, and at the end the finished product will be put together. It makes for an engaging read and the perfect way to get a deep understanding of the topic.

I know quite a few copywriting formulas, but this one was new to me. It’s very straight forward and effective looking at the finished product. If you follow this formula, you will naturally write copy that focuses all on the customer and what’s in it for them.

 Conclusion

That’s it for now, guys and gals…I’d love to receive your feedback.

Would you like me to create round up posts more often? Did you enjoy this or not?

Voice your opinion in the comments (and be honest, okay ;-).

I look forward to hearing from you!

What a great share, love these article. But let me share something, learning from them. Definitely agreed that writing a longer piece of content can 10x the traffic to blog.

and everybody should definitely try it out, start up small reach from 500 words article and slowly add extra great content to it and slowly boost from 500 to 1000 or more.

But it’s not about word count it’s the value in the post.

Thanks for sharing this great post,
Have a great day,

Hi Jasper,

It is said that when you want to be successful then learn from those who have already done it. In this way we are able to find our faults and improve our performance.
Yeah it is true that hundreds of articles may be already available on the same topic.
It has most of other blogger; they have not received the appreciation as expected. They spent so much time and effort in writing beautiful post but did not get the attention. It is frustrating and many of Bloggers quit their job at this stage.
So a proper strategy is must if they don’t want this to happen.
The headline of topic is important as it draws the attention of people. It should not be a common Headline otherwise it will not get attention. Use of link to other website and intelligent use of graphic and images is also important. Readers always likes to read interesting and funny stories thus reading your story should make them happy.
Thanks for sharing.

With regards,
Saurav
