What are the basics of writing an online marketing ad?
I want to start promoting/marketing products online for a company that pays cash. What are the basics I need to know to get me started?
Start with a ‘popping’ headline. Remember that people are browsing through multiple boring ads and you need to stand out to get noticed. Attract people with your selling points and use words with strong connotations in your favor. For example, people don’t simply say, ‘watches for sale’. Perhaps a good salesman would say, ‘High quality, precision watches at wholesale prices’ or ‘cheap designer watches’.
The ad needs to be short and sweet. Give them just a taste of the sweet stuff so that they will want to follow your link to your website. Just like the headline, give them power-packed words, but not too many of them. Give a BRIEF synopsis of why your product or service is what they want and what distinguishes it from the many other products and services listed in the classified ads.
You can post your ad in one of the ‘biggies’ like Craigslist and you can choose a niche market classified system. Always familiarize yourself with the rules of the system and follow them to the letter. Otherwise you may be dropped and you will lose this marketing avenue.
What kind of writing sample should I submit for online marketing job?
I’m applying for a freelance copywriting position with an online marketing company. What kind of writing sample should I send to something like this? I have a BA and MA in English. I have tons of academic research papers but is that what they want? I’ve also written press releases, memos and reports for my current job. I just don’t know what would be appropriate to submit. Please help.
It sounds like the press releases will be your most appropriate choice for this.
