No matter what people think or say about copywriting formulas, they are a great tool for copywriters, marketers and solopreneurs.
I love them because they can be used in many different ways:
- To design your landing page
- To write tweets
- To write a sales page
- To practice writing about your product.
Copywriting formulas are an essential part of my writing process.
You’ll find a wide range of formulas online. These six are easy to get started because they’re common, short and effective when done right.
- AIDA: attention – desire – interest – action
- PPPP: picture – promise – prove – push
- BAB: before – after – bridge
- PASO: problem – agitation – solution – outcome
- FAB: feature – advantage – benefit
- ACCA: awareness – comprehension – conviction – action
Let’s take one example (my newsletter 😉) and write a few lines about it following each formula.
AIDA stands for attention, interest, desire and action.
The first goal is to grab your reader’s attention. Then spark their interest and make them desire your solution. Finally, invite them to take action.
