Freelance Copywriting:Direct Mail

Direct mail copywriting requires quick-hitting cover headlines, strong benefits copy and a powerful call to action. It's all about getting the reader to do something NOW. Whether it's a direct mail brochure or a direct mail post card the goal is getting hits on your web site, filling your email box, or having your phones ringing - the work you see here did just that. Here's a rule from a direct mail Jedi: "Be positive and specific. One clear, firm statement is stronger than many paragraphs writing around the point. Why flood the reader with weak overwritten arguments when instead we could pierce him with the needle-spray of a fine-tuned message?"*
