Do you find yourself staring at a blank screen, wondering how to get started writing your copy?

I've found that I get much better results if I use some “jump starters”–they keep me focused, and get me started on the right track with a copy project.

Here are 3 “tricks” I use–maybe they'll work for you, too:

  • Write the benefit bullets. Don't worry about writing body copy just yet. Just start banging out all the benefits of owning the product. This will be more extensive list than the one in the order box (which is our next “jump-starter”).
  • Write the order box copy. This is the part of the copy where you clearly spell out the price of your offer, and the bullet points of all the main benefits of owning the product. Select the MAIN benefits (the one with the most “persuasion power” for the order box.
  • Write 10 possible headlines for your copy. Don't worry if they're not “good enough”. You can even use some of the bullets you've written as starting points. Use a headline “swipe file” to spark ideas. Just get 10 headlines written.

Once you've finished the 3 “jump-starters” above, you will have written quite a bit of copy. It will be focused on the benefits of owning the product. You'll be off to a good start on your copy project.
