2. Use effective words: Some effective words to include are FREE, Easy, New, Now, Save, Revolutionary, Today, You, Yes and Breakthrough.

3. Make your paragraphs short:
Limit them to seven lines or less.

4. Use simple words: Make your copy familiar to your readers. Don't use jargon or difficult words. Most people won't know or care what you're talking about.

5. Focus on benefits:
"Sell the sizzle, not the steak." Focus on the benefits of your Offer, not your service or company, but what they'll get.

6. Be honest: Be honest, straightforward, upfront and true. Don't ever mislead your readers.

7. Use easy-to-read type:
Use sufficient size type, easy-to-read type. Don't use fancy font types.

8. Include a P.S.: Call attention to a major benefit in your P.S.

9. Use specifics:
Make your Offer specific. Use "10 tips to eliminate . . . ," rather than "some ways to eliminate . . ."

10. Don't waste money: Don't spend lots of money on expensive stationery. Expensive paper won't get your prospects to respond. Your Offer is the key!
