When Wrestling and Writing Headlines Collide

Hi

While I don’t get to watch much TV these days I do love the wrestling shows such as WWE and Raw.

 

I’m not a hard-core fan of the actual wrestling but what I do love is the marketing strategies they use… the atmosphere they create and the show they deliver for an army of fans.

 

So how do wrestling and writing a headline collide?

 

Easy?

 

When wrestlers get up there and talk about themselves you can almost feel their credibility taking a nosedive on air and throughout the crowd. The heckling… booing, hisses and shouts of ‘get off’ must be heard from miles away but…

when other announcers, wrestlers and people endorse them in a tag team match or something else, that changes everything.

You can feel the excitement of the crowd as each wrestler talks each other up… you can feel the passion of the crowd responding to the wrestlers and you can almost hear the cash registers ticking over!

So how do wrestling and writing headlines and sales copy collide?

Well, when you talk about yourself, product or service in any copy you will naturally raise doubts in the minds of your prospect or audience. It’s human nature. Human beings are skeptics especially with all the snake oil salesman and promises being made out there these days.

Anyway when you have something else talking you up, that’s an entirely different thing altogether.

Here’s an example to work from…

Maybe you have a mortgage service business and a print ad or website headline that says…

“Want a Quick, Fast and Easy Way to Pay $12,000 Off Your Home Loan in 12 months?”

It’s okay but I do have my doubts because I’m human.. it sounds a little bit too good to be true and I’m asking myself whats the catch.

So let’s take that same headline idea and use the third party or break the ice headline concept…

“What’s The Secret I Used To Pay $12,000 Off My Mortgage in 12 Months Without Taking A Second Job Or Cheating The Tax Man?”

 

See and feel the difference?

When a living breathing customer is saying these things about you, your product or service using his or her own story using their own words… their real name and a photo of themselves it’s more believable and credible and goes a long way to overcoming people’s doubts about you, your products or services.

Key elements to making this headline pay off and work for you

1. Make sure you feature the persons photo who’s talking about you next to headline

2. Open your ad or copy with their story. Example. My name is Peter Rickson. I recently had an amazing experience where I paid off an extra $12,000 on my mortgage. How’d I do it? Simple, I used Joan Sloan and the team at <company mortgage centre>.

And so on, keep it short, keep it simple.

Good luck and give it a go. It works and if you need any further advice, help or support drop me an email or give me call on: 0412 288 339.

Happy to help.

    Thanks Eddie,
    As always you hit the nail on the head with practical, wise words of wisdom. You remind me that it is better to have a “listening” conversation rather than a monologue. It is amazing what you can learn.
    Regards

    This has been quite open-handed of you to make openly all that most people might have advertised for an e book in making some money for themselves, and in particular seeing that you could possibly have done it in case you decided. The strategies as well worked like the easy way to realize that other people have a similar eagerness just as my personal own to know whole lot more when considering this issue. http://www.louisokay.com

    You genuinely can make your baits really seriously enhanced in every way to
    be detectable as easily as possible and as active in water as possible,
    to highlight your baits to fish senses. With the high temperature
    sensitivity of some perishable goods, it’s easy to understand why so many companies
    rely on vacuum insulated panels such a Thermo – Cor to ensure the quality of their products.

    Of course, lots of methods have evolved to try to avoid spooking fish out
    of your swim or even stop them from stopping feeding in the possible case
    of some line shy fish, and having them leave your swim.

    It is defined as the lowering of the core body temperature.

    Players doing solo or non-healing players benefit most from this profession as they can replenish themselves with
