Copywriting Process In Advertising
Shock Therapy Ad Approach
FACT: Most Copywriters Write Ads Backwards
“Is writing Facebook ads a waste of time?”
I ask because, if you’re like most copywriters, you probably start a new Facebook campaign by brainstorming ad angles… writing countless variations of copy… and then picking images and videos that fit with the text.
But if you’re doing it that way…
Your process is DEAD wrong. You have the copywriting process in advertising backward.
Especially when you consider that 70-80% of an ad’s success comes from the image or video you use (also known as the “creative”).
…NOT the copy!
So it begs the question…
“If ad creatives are so important, why would you ever write the copy FIRST?”
Well, that’s exactly what Kenneth Yu – the former Copy Chief at MindValley and the founder of the “Holy Grail Copywriting” System – wondered when he realized that almost every copywriter creates Facebook ads BACKWARDS.
Instead, he developed a proprietary process known as “Shock Therapy.”
…Which begins by finding specific images and videos that provoke visceral reactions and immediately grab your prospect’s attention – BEFORE they’ve read a single word of copy. Truly copywriting skills.
And – once you have the most eyeball-grabbing creatives you can find – only then do you write headlines and body copy that pair with your arsenal of compelling images and videos.
And when done correctly…
You can TRIPLE your campaign’s click-through rate and lower your cost-per-lead by up to 75% like Kenneth.
…Which is why he recently sat down with Rich Schefren to reveal the full details behind his “Shock Therapy” method, including:
