Think Like a Reader description

In tough economic times, the communicators who thrive — and those who help their organizations thrive — are the ones who know how to write copy that sells: not just products and services, but programs, plans and positions, as well.

Let’s face it: In this environment, organizations can’t afford to communicate just to get the word out. They need communicators who know how to move the needle on the bottom line.

Sadly, most communicators were taught to report and inform, not to write copy that drives readers to action. In fact, many of the standard practices in business communication and PR writing today actually do more to put readers off than to persuade them.

But now there’s a way to master the art of writing copy that sells …

Learn to change your readers’ minds, hearts and actions

The secret to writing to persuade is to position your messages in your audience’s best interests. (Most communicators position their messages in their organization’s best interests.)

In this toolkit, you’ll learn a four-step process for making your message — and your organization — more relevant, valuable and rewarding to your audience by thinking like a reader. Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • The formula readers use to determine what to read — and what to throw away
  • Two rewards of reading you can tap to boost reader interest in your story
  • What your readers are looking for in information — and what they’ll avoid
  • The No. 1 question your readers want answered
  • A simple switch in focus — it takes no more than two minutes — that can help you put yourself in your reader’s head
  • A simple translation process that pushes reader benefits to the top of your message
  • Two quick formulas for writing the second sentence in your very next piece
  • A three-letter word that can focus your copy on the relevance to the reader
  • Questions to ask your source or subject matter expert to uncover reader benefits
