If not, you’re missing out on one of the top-secret weapons that copywriters have used for years to get their prospects to act accordingly.
So, what do master copy-writers do to move prospects to action? They ask them to act.
That’s right. You simply need to ask your prospects to do what you want them to do. It really is that straightforward.
But, most landing pages, sales pages and emails don’t utilize this bizarrely simple technique (which is also why most ad-copy performs so poorly).
According to usability expert Jared Spool www.uie.com/about/consultantss, when visitors find powerful action words on a landing page, they are successful at completing their task 72% of the time; if the action word isn’t on the page, they are only successful 6% of the time.
Obviously, it’s in your best interest to ask your prospects what you want them do, how to do it, and that you want them to do it immediately.
Here is a list of 50 powerful “call to action” phrases that you can use in your future ad-copy:
