How to Create Ads that Sell with Little Effort

One of the main problems people find with marketing, is the actual selling. How can you create ads which sell?

Well there are tons of articles, and pay for e-books to help you create ad copy, but there is a free and easy way to create your own ads which sell, sell sell.

Swipe them

I don't mean word for word, not even close, but keep your eyes and ears open to ideas. We are all bombarded with adverts daily, and these are a goldmine to anyone trying to sell something.

The hard work's already been done, ad men have been paid small fortunes to make an ad which will sell something, all you need to do is modify it to your own product.

Don't feel guilty about it either, even those highly paid advertising companies do it, it's not unusual to see one company using anothers successful campaign to piggy back their own ads onto giving them an instant boost.

As someone looking for ads which will make sales you have a myriad of resources to swipe from, just keep your mind open, and if something catches your eye make a mental note (or physical one) and see if you can't adapt it to your own products.

Before long you'll find yourself looking at newspaper television and magazine ads in a whole new light. No longer are they getting in the way of your passtime, now they're the beginnings of new ideas for you to use in promoting your business, or products.

All the best advertising and marketing men have their swipe files, start your own today.
