501 shortcuts to compelling copy
Not only that, but there are a million other things you could be working on to grow your business and sitting down to write just seems so slooooooow.
If you’re a blogger or business owner having a headache trying to find persuasive, conversational and descriptive words at a moment’s notice, then the Copywriting Phrase-Book is for you.
As a copywriter, I spend a lot of time writing and a lot of time studying copywriting. To save time I began building a reference of some of my favourite phrases and words (that I sometimes forget I know after a 12 hour day) and some words and phrases I notice a lot of the blogging and copywriting giants used.
I have over 50 copywriting-related books and printed downloads in a plastic basket near my desk. However, I keep 8 of the more important ones that I need to reference often, on my desk. Your phrase-book just joined them.
Also, I have multiple headline cheat sheets, but I especially like the way yours is arranged. Thanks for offering. – Dale. L. Sims
I started adding words here and there, then phrases, then bunching them into categories until I had 501 little shortcuts to use in my copy when my brain wasn’t as alert as it could be.
Everyone’s always talking about automating business processes, this was my way of finding a writing shortcut that didn’t make me sound like I’d used a formula.
I knew so many people who could do with shaving a bit of time off their writing (and saving their mental energy) but didn’t want to necessarily spend $1,000s on a copywriter, so I decided to share.
(Already know you want it? Save the scrolling and buy it here:)
So, what’s inside?
Just like a phrase-book, it’s packed pretty full of words and phrases in the following categories:
30 Ways to a killer headline
Here you get 30 templates (and suggestions of what words you need to use to fill in the blanks) so that you can come up with a headline for your business or blog that tells your customers what you do (and why they should keep reading) in seconds.
I LOVED this Copywriting Phrase-Book! It was fantastic and is a must for anyone who blogs or writes marketing material. I am going to keep this on my desk to use anytime I have a blog post, sales copy or even e-mail that I need to spice up a little bit. I especially liked 30 Ways to a killer headline because I pound my head against the wall trying to think of headlines. And I loved how short and to the point it was – I don’t have a lot of time here, people. Thanks Amy for this amazing guide!. – www.GrandmaMaryshow.com
