What is Direct-Response Marketing?

The traditional direct-response letter comes through snail mail. It might have a message on the envelope to rouse your curiosity about what's inside. 

The letter inside tells you about their product or service. There's an order form and often a toll-free phone number.

A lot of people send these straight to the trash because they're so poorly written.

While snail-mail sales letters are still a thing, most sales letters are now on the web. You click on an ad or a link in an email, and boom - You're on a sales page.

But it's gotta be well-written. Otherwise, the reader surfs away.

Essentials for Your Direct-Response Letter

 Headline. A unique, attention-getting headline that makes a big promise.

A Message That Focuses on Your Customer. A one-on-one conversation with your prospect. You reach the reader with a story, a testimonial, or getting the reader to picture his or her life with your product or service.

Scannable Format. People are really busy, and they don't want to read everything that's put in front of them. You have to give the reader a look at what's in there and why he or she should read it now.

Call to Action. Your goal is to convert your prospect into a paying customer, right? So you surely want to urge your customer to take action - buy a product, sign up for a membership, download an ebook, get your free newsletter ... depends on your goal.
