The First Words Out of Your Mouth. By Jenean Matthews Copyright 2001
Advertising is such an important part of a business. If you don't get the word out about what you're offering you won't make money. There's plenty of opportunity to advertise on and offline line. When you meet someone in person you have the opportunity to speak with him or her verbally. The first words out of you mouth are very important. When you advertise the words in your ad are similar to the first words out your mouth. Make them important.
How many ads have you seen in your lifetime? Some were very effective and may have even caused you to get more information or make a purchase. I guarantee you those types of ads aren't thrown together in a matter of seconds and put out there for the world to see.
It's important to spend time writing effective ads. You want the readers to visit your site to get more information and eventually make a purchase. Next time you read an ezine or see advertisements don't by-pass reading the ads. You may think that you're not interested in other opportunities so you will skip the classified ads, but you're missing out on a learning experience. Read the ads and note how they make you feel. Are they good, effective ads? Why? Are they lousy ads? Why?
What makes a good, effective ad? If you can answer this question, you've just increased the visits to you site. When using classified ads you have a limited time to get someone to view your site. That's the primary purpose.
Don't make obvious mistakes when writing your ad.
@ Don't try to sell you offer in your ad. Think about this, would you walk up to a stranger and ask them to give you $20. The purpose of the ad is to get the click.
@ Don't use unrealistic hype. Can you really believe you're going to make $1,000,000 next week? (If you do I have some land in Florida for you.;-))
@ Don't be so vague. Some ads don't give you a clue of what the offer is about. Your asking someone to spend valuable time viewing your site at least give him or her a preview.
Listed below are ten things to consider and ask yourself when writing a good, effective ad, or reading ads for a learning experience. I've used some of the ads from previous issues of my ezine, The Primary Spot (email@example.com), as a demonstration.
1. IS IT BELIEVABLE? Can you really get guaranteed visitors, do you need them, and do you at least want to find out more details?

2. WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE OFFER? Before you accept a new job one of the first things you want to know is what are the benefits. Are training and support good benefits?

9. DOES IT MOTIVATE? Do you want to take action after reading the ad?

10. IS IT INFORMATIVE? Will you gain information you can use? Is it easy to get to the information?

Of course a short, attention-grabbing ad can't incorporate all of these points but these are certainly things to think about when you write your next good, effective ad or view others.
