What is the first goal of any email you send to your mail-list, customers or prospective clients ⁉️
To get it read. 👀 Makes sense, right? So what’s the primary goal of your first sentence?
The surprisingly simple answer is…to get the second sentence read.
Each line of your email must persuade the reader to read the next one, all the way through to your close.
In the next few days, I’ll be sharing a few tips on Email Copywriting Strategies and Techniques that make me and my clients money — simply via the power of emotional, mental, intellectual and cognitive persuasion.
You can use these strategies for your email campaigns / sequences and begin to see results immediately! ✅📈💵
🥇Here’s the first one
💥 1. Before-After-Bridge (BAB) 💥
Before — Here’s your world now
After — Imagine what the world would be like if you solved this problem
Bridge — Here’s how to get there
Open by describing a problem that is relevant to your prospect, and then describe how the world would be different if that problem didn’t exist. Close by explaining how your product/idea/service can help them get there.
Why it works: According to behavioral psychologists, humans are motivated to take action by two things: pleasure and pain. The BAB formula uses this universal trigger to compel readers to respond.
📊 Example: See the screenshot example of the BAB Formula (2nd pic)

How to AVOID Serious MARKETING Accidents! (And get home safe, with money in your pockets) 💰🔈🚙🚧✍️🤕
It honestly makes my blood boil when I see talented business owners with amazing products or services, marketing themselves like a person with the intellectual range of a rotting onion.
It’s NOT cool!
💡⛔AVOID Empty Words or Phrases! 🖋️📒
Keeping in mind your readers’ fragility of attention is CRUCIAL! Avoid writing like this:
🔍Example # 1 “Always striving for excellence, from our very inception, a visionary, vigilant, and flexible approach has ensured that we are awake to the exciting possibilities science and technology allow, so that we can offer you beautiful, precise, and high-quality hardwood floors.”
I know. It’s hard to imagine that sentence ever got to see the light of day. Forty-one words that tell us absolutely nothing. But yes, that’s a real example, taken from the wild.
Here’s another one:
🔍 Example # 2 “These changes reflect our view that tighter integration and closer collaboration between our teams is a critical component of sustainably growing our business. While this process has required us to make some really tough decisions, we believe that rigorously ensuring our team structure always aligns with our goals will make us stronger.”
This is what they were trying to say … (in my own words, not theirs):
✅“Yeah, we had to fire some people.”
The point being, all that blah blah blah is a great way to drive people away! 😱
Long phrases and sentences with almost zero meaning instantly dilute your readers’ interest and attention.
They don’t have time to listen to your life story. Just as you don’t either. See the human commonality? You are selling to HUMANS. Not Drones or Robots.🤖
SPEAK the human language. And get home safe without colliding with other onion-minded peeps on the information highway! 🛣️⭐
