6 Critical Components of Captivating Content

When you think of copywriting one of the more important questions to keep in mind is this: How can I get more traffic to my site?

The thing is there are hundreds of thousands of content roaming the world wide web begging for consumer attention just like you.

The good news? Copywriting is all about gaining the right attention from the right folks. CopyBlogger is sharing copywriting formulas to cut the clutter and create a thoughtful, well-designed path. Let’s break down those formulas!

Original Persuasion Formulas

“Attention — Interest — Desire — Action” or “Problem — Agitate — Solve”

AIDA is an old as time formula that focuses on a beneficial promise (attention), the ongoing momentum (interest), a stirring emotion (desire), and expressly asking the reader to do something (action).

PAS, on the other hand, starts with a compelling audience problem, slides deeper and deeper into the issue, and shows how the business solves said problem.

A Formula for the Middle

This is all about offering value generously to nurture your audience in the “middle” of your content strategy.

  • Peak interest by teaching readers how to do things
  • Show who you are and what you believe
  • Let your audience dip their toes in the water with small, low-risk commitments
