80% of newbie copywriters make the mistake of starting from a blank page.

This leads to frustration, time wastage, and eventually giving up.

That’s why I use copywriting systems.

Here are 7 *creative* formulas to help you write copy faster (apart from AIDA & PAS)

1. The BAB Formula

Before: How life was before you tried the solution

After: How the solution changed your life

Bridge: What you sell that proved to bridge the gap Like

2. Three Reasons Why

Before you start writing, ask yourself these 3 questions from a reader’s perspective and answer them in your copy.

-Why are you the best?

-Why should I believe you?

-Why should I buy it right now?
