Words That Work: Copywriting to Sell to CEOs, CFOs & CIOs; Copywriting to Sell Entrepreneurs
Stop! Before you write any marketing copy, sales presentations, email or ads to impress CEOs, first find out what trigger words and phrases will work. And which “sales-killer” words to avoid in your copy. Critical for lead gen and sales campaigns.
Is your company trying to sell products or services to CEOs, CFOs, CIOs or entrepreneurs? Now there are copywriting guides to help you:
- Write headlines for email, direct mail, PowerPoint slides, ads, and Web sites that galvanize C-level execs’ attention … so you can generate more leads and close more sales
- AVOID words you think are “great copy” that actually make your sales prospects flinch
- Make your prices seem like a true bargain – even if they’re higher than the competition’s
First, understand the psychology of company leaders … what motivates and what scares them:
You can write incredibly powerful copy only when you can get right inside your prospect’s head to understand what motivates and what worries him or her. That’s why Words That Work Guide starts with an easy-to-scan psychological profiles of your prospect, plus a words and phrases list for copywriting to them.
CEOs are not all alike – for example words that impress leaders with tech backgrounds might turn off CEOs with financial backgrounds – that’s why Copywriting to CEOs gives you separate profiles and words lists for:
- CEOs with General Backgrounds
- CEOs with Financial Backgrounds
- CEOs with Engineering Backgrounds
- CEOs with Operations Backgrounds
- Chief Financial Officers (CFOs)
- Chief Information Officers (CIOs)
Plus, entrepreneurs are utterly, completely different psychologically from CEOs of established companies. Your copywriting also has to be very different for this demographic – or you’ll lose the sale. Period.
That’s why Words That Work: Copywriting to Entrepreneurs guide includes separate profiles and words lists for:
- Entrepreneurs with General Backgrounds
- Entrepreneurs with Financial Backgrounds
- Entrepreneurs with Engineering Backgrounds
- Entrepreneurs with Operations Backgrounds
- Franchisees and Potential Franchisees
Now you can get the insights and powerful copy points from focus groups — at a tiny fraction of the cost of holding focus groups yourself.
How to make your price (no matter what it is) feel like a “true bargain” to your prospects:

So, Words That Work includes specific copywriting tips, tactics and phrasing that makes your pricing seem like a true bargain. Instead of fixating on your price tag, your prospects will see your unique benefits.

Plus, you’ll learn how to include key unique benefits in your copy — not just features, tech specs and descriptions of what you’re selling but the powerful reasons why your prospects should select your product or service. (Note: This is especially useful for high tech marketers.)
