The 12 Reasons Why Most Ads Fall Flat On Their Face, Costing You A Fortune Instead of Making You The Money You Deserve!

by: Scott Wilson
1.You think you need ĎImageí or Ďbrandingí advertising because thatís all the so-called Ďtop gunsí use in their advertising. You donít use direct response advertising they donít and youíd think they know best.

2.You never offer compelling benefits that cause your prospect to want to do business with you of your competitor.

3.You donít use powerful, benefit driven headlines that literally stop your prospect in their tracks and draw them into the body of your ad.

4.You donít tell your prospect whatís in your offer from them. But you do ramble on about your image, your business and what you are trying to sell him.

5.You donít talk to your prospect like you know him. You donít get specific and donít motivate him.

6.You donít address your prospect needs, wants and desires in your opening headlines. Youíre to busying thinking about yourself or your company image! Remember, your prospect is thinking of one thing only WIIFM (Whatís I It For Me?)

7.Your ads are boring and dull and look like all the other hundreds of ads. You donít motivate your prospect to take ACTION. You donít use energetic, exciting, action words! Your about as exciting as wet paint!

8.Because you copy what everyone else is doing, or do as the ad agency suggests, your ads are full of ďwhite spaceĒ which leaves little room to add any benefits. (The only thing your prospect is looking for) You never have ads with a lot of copy. Itís the copy your prospects want. Information is King!

9.You donít give specifics in your ads. Your prospects want exact numbers, percentages, results and testimonials. They want all the facts before they will make the decision to move towards a buying decision.

10.You donít give your prospects any reason to act on your offer NOW. Tell them how to in a step by step process. Unless you tell them, them may not know what the next step is?

11.You donít see your marketing, sales and advertising as a total system. Itís this total system that can either make or break you as a profitable business. They are not separate functions, with separate goals.

12.You focus on YOU, YOUR COMPANY, YOUR LOGO, YOUR CREDENTIALS, instead of focusing on what all of this can do for your prospect. What BENEFITS will them get if they buy with you?

Now you know the 12 reasons why maybe, some of the ads you are running are not pulling any responses at all! In fact they will be costing you and your company money EVERY TIME YOU RUN THEM!
