Copywriting Guide – How to write content that sells?

What Is Copywriting, exactly?

Let’s begin by defining what copywriting isn’t. It’s not a novel, a blog article, or even a clever Instagram caption. Copywriting is the form of writing that sells.

Its copy written to persuade customers to do a specific action. When done correctly, it encourages people to buy, subscribe, or opt-in to your company’s offer.

Persuasive writing is a skill that takes years to acquire and involves a lot of behind-the-scenes work. We’ll go into these specifics later, but for now, keep in mind that good copywriting:

  • Encourages users to take action
  • Makes users want to purchase a product or service
  • Emphasizes the importance of problem-solving products and services.

Copywriting Styles

Copywriting can be found in any of the following places.

  1. Copy for a website (homepages, other pages, etc.)
  2. Advertisements (social media, print, digital)
  3. Product or service pages
  4. Email marketing campaigns

What are the similarities and differences between these? Their goal is obvious – and it’s always to get the reader to the next step in the sales process.

The buyers may not even realize they’re buying until they’ve clicked the buy button. But there’s a catch. It’s more than simply words on a page when it comes to copywriting. The Lilo Seo Team told us that it takes years to develop copywriting skills and be a professional copywriter. However, if you want to increase sales or user conversions, it’s well worth the cost.

What are the Differences Between Content Marketing, Copywriting, and Content Writing?

There are three primary stakeholders when it comes to advertising, marketing, and writing. Don’t be fooled by the jargon; the distinctions between each form of writing are significant.

Copywriting is compelling, motivational, or inspirational writing that pushes potential buyers and clients to complete a transaction.

Content writing is a term that refers to a variety of written formats on the web, such as blogs, infographics, digital books, and more.

Content marketing is a broad term that refers to a plan for leveraging content to promote a service or product. Different content types, levels of testing, and useful Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) should all be part of a comprehensive content marketing strategy.

Easy Ways of Converting More Readers using Copywriting Formulas

Here’s some excellent news: outstanding copywriting rarely begins with a blank page.

To make the process easier, some of the greatest copywriters in the business use copywriting formulas. These formulas are for various text places on pages, advertising, and emails, among other things.

Formulas for Headlines

Copywriting headlines can greatly affect your writing. What is the reason for this? Professional copywriters estimate that up to six times as many readers read the headline first before the body material.

The eye-catching items at the beginning of pages or sections are called headlines. That explains why visitors should engage enough to continue scrolling and what the page’s main aim is.

Copywriters place a lot of emphasis on the capability to write compelling headlines. While part of the pressure is justified, there’s no need to start from scratch.

Copywriting professionals and leaders in professional marketing writing, provide a few typical headline techniques for maximum effectiveness. For ideas, look at the following templates:

Although a competition [does this unfavorable thing], [your brand] [does this extremely desirable item].

For example, while Pepsi’s bubbles fade, Coke’s continue to dance.

[Name of the service] is a [category of the service] and they provide [awesome results for consumers] while avoiding [typical objections, pain points, or worry].

Example. Google Drive is cloud storage that provides you with limitless quantities of data to save your files.

Notice how the writer uses emotional language to illustrate just what the customer needs.

Formulas for Websites in General

Let’s speak about webpage formulas now that you know how to write a fantastic headline.

Complete web pages, on the whole, give the reader or potential buyer more content and body copy. It’s critical to keep the reader engaged until the very end of the page.

You can achieve this by using one of two widely used copywriting formulas such as the PAS formula.


PAS is a basic sales formula that is noted for its excellent conversion rates and ability to persuade users to act. The letters are an abbreviation used to represent each element in the formula.

P (Problem) – Describe in detail the issue that your potential consumer or client is having. What stage of their journey are they on now?

A (Agitate) – This is where you have to put in a lot of effort. To make your point, use vivid visuals and details. Their issue is significant, and they require immediate attention.

S (Solution) – The solution should resolve the issue while also calming their anxiety. This should be obvious in how the dots link to complete the circle and solve the problem. The user should feel at ease, knowing that they have finally found the solution to their problem.
