Sample Ads, headlines and copywriting tips
Remember, these are SAMPLE ads and headlines. If everyone uses the same ad, the effectiveness can drop. Use the tips below to create your own ads based on these or based on your own experience and intuition.
On the other hand, there's not the same "burnout" with banner ads. Use the banners below wherever you can... on your own website, on other's sites, in banner exchange programs, etc.
Don't forget that, if you're a Member, and your on autoship, you get to use "tracking codes" after your SFI ID#. That way you know how effective your ads are. For information about upgrading to Member, click here.
These are ads that we have run in classified sections of websites, in E-zines, in opt-in list, etc. Remember, we're always looking for new, good ads! Also, there are other samples posted at http://sixfigureincome.com/affiliate/. In these samples, replace the xxxxx.xx with your Associate ID # and a 2-digit tracking code so you know how the ad does!
A totally generic ad we've used is:

Why do these work so well? My guess: because the people getting it are probably in an affiliate program, so they see the subject line and think this is about money owed to them. Then the copy just asks them to go somewhere to find out about the money that could be theirs. And the URL looks more official than the other registration page at sixfigureincome.com/affiliate/register.html. Sneaky.
Another one that works for a similar reason uses the subject line:
About your money-making affiliate website
Here are some other good headlines you can use to point to the affiliate registration, page or the product pages or the main page (you'll know which is which):
Double your downline in 7 days! FREE report!FREE home-biz Success magazine!Turn 25% of your prospects into distributors, GUARANTEED!Why your MLM business is FAILING!

The bottom line with ads is TEST THEM! Sometimes changing one word will double (or cut in half) your response rate. Run the ad, see how it does, make one change and also change the tracking code. Try it again and see if it does better or worse than the previous ad.
To use a banner ad, save it to your hard drive, then upload it to the website where it will be displayed.
To save an banner, either right click on the banner, or hold down your mouse button on the ad. When you see the menu of choices, select the choice that says something like "Save Image as..."
Below each banner is the code you would use to display the banner.
Anatomy of an ad -- how to write classified ads that drive people to your site.
If you want to be a HUGE success in this business, you'll learn how to write an effective, simple headline. If you want to me MASSIVE success, you'll learn how to write a good, short, powerful classified ad.
There are two parts to a classified ad, the headline or subject (if it's an email), and the body copy. This is just a teaser to get you thinking about creating your own ads.
When a prospect reads a good headline, she thinks, "That's something I need, something I want, something that solves a problem I have!" What makes them think that? Welcome to the art of copywriting. You want some ideas? What are the headlines that you respond to? Why? Copy those headlines (not word-for word!)
Offering something free is good, something new, something with insider secrets of how to do something. A good quote can work. Offer a benefit to the reader. Instead of more money, how about the thing they want to do with the money: "take your dream vacation" Use the words "you" and "your." Give away samples.
In the body copy, make it simple. Again, give people benefits they want -- time to spend with their family, a business they can be proud of, or do in minutes a day, respect from their friends and family, to provide for their children or parents, to wake up when they want to, etc.
Your ads need a "call to action" -- "click here now," "fill out this form," "send an email to me."
Include urgency and a fear of loss. "Act NOW, supplies are limited." "Offer ends in 3 days, CALL NOW!" "First come, first served, everyone who signs up after you earns you money -- SIGN UP FAST."
Include guarantees and ease their mind. "No risk. No obligation. Nobody will call you."
