One of the things you see amateur copywriters do (including people who know better) is put the gay little “as seen on” logo at the top of their ads.
“As seen on…”
Then logos of major news sites, publications, shows, etc.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Like a great idea.
I’m not saying it won’t increase conversions.
But, when people haven’t actually been seen on those places except because they ran paid ads there, it’s pretty shady. Yes, it’ll work on the weak-minded and hyper buyers who buy everything.
But the skeptics?
Which make up as much as 2-5 x’s more people than hyper buyers?
There is a much better way to use credentials like that.
(Assuming they are true.)
A way I’ve used to make ads that would otherwise seem mundane and boring sound suddenly exciting and, dare I say it, sexy? A way I taught the Ben Settle Show announcer chick in today’s podcast. A way you, too, can use, as well if’n you want.
