4 P’s (PICTURE | PROMISE | PROOF | PITCH)

Now, Let’s rewrite this with the 4 P’s. Here you simply create a picture in the reader’s mind. You deliver a promise on that picture and provide proof. Afterwards, you tell the reader what you want them to do with the pitch

PICTURE

Imagine how you’d feel if you could churn out good copy every day?

Could you write a compelling long form promo for $10000? Could you write effective and short Facebook ads that drive traffic to your client’s business?

Can you picture the validation you’d get and money stuffing your pockets because you know how to create value with just words?

And imagine being able to do that anywhere in the world.

Do you have it in you?

I like to think you do. Because it’s really easy…

PROMISE

If you use these 3 copywriting templates…

You’ll squash any objections that your readers may have. You’ll write with laser-like focus because these templates keep you in a straight line. This way, you get the customer from point A to B.

You’ll finally turn out copy on time and make your clients happy.  

How?

PROOF

If you’ve been staring at a blank screen for more than an hour or you keep making edits then your copy doesn’t have any structure.

Without structure, you give your brain….

Too many options, too many ideas, and too many words.

It’s ironic how your brain is imprisoned with limitless possibilities when you need to free it with the shackles of structure.

Think about it…

A basic song has structure.

It’s got two verses, a hook, and a bridge.

It’s got components that are sequenced and put together to build out a fully fleshed out package of emotion and science. And then it finally becomes a song.

You must have a similar approach with your copy.

That’s why you need basic copywriting templates such as:

  • PAS (PROBLEM | AGITATE | SOLVE)
  • AIDA (ATTENTION | INTEREST | DESIRE | ACTION)
  • 4 Ps (PICTURE | PROMISE | PROOF | PITCH)

When you use these templates, your copy and ideas flow more easily.

This way, you transition to your lead, customer concerns, offer the solution, and make your pitch seamlessly.

Just like I’m about to do now. So here’s the…
