2 “Must Know” Copywriting Secrets that Guarantee Success

There are basically 2 kinds of buyers:

  1. The Impulsive Buyer
    This is the kind of guy with “places to go and people to see” and not a whole lot of time to do it in. Typically, he’ll skim the headlines and subtopics, glance at the photos and captions, and make a snap decision.
  2. The Analytical Buyer
    This group of buyers believes that the proof is in the details. They’ll read everything… including the fine print.
