If screaming headlines and over-the-top phrasing make you want to hide your head in a bushel, get this guide to writing attention-getting yet honest and helpful sales copy.

Whether you're a coach, author, financial advisor, B-to-B product manager or simply a professional who values trust, dignity and respect for clients, you'll find a framework for setting down a solid first draft and tweaking it into an effective selling tool.

This concise handbook from a copywriting expert known for creative marketing leads beginning and intermediate writers through a three-step process of collecting the needed information, jazzing it up responsibly and then polishing it so it appeals to ideal customers.


  • The 5 inescapable components of a complete marketing presentation and another element that adds oomph whenever it's appropriate

  • 21 no-hype writing techniques that make dull items much more desirable

  • Dozens of illuminating examples (many structured as 'before' and 'after')

  • 11 kinds of unethical or disreputable marketing tactics to avoid so you maintain self-respect and buyers' trust

  • 12 methods of fine-tuning your headline for greater reader intrigue and curiosity

  • How and why to tinker with your tone

  • 8 techniques for making whatever you wrote more direct, clear and powerful

    This is a resource you'll want to consult again and again to transform a boring, weak promotion into one that sings you honorably into the profit column.
