Practical techniques for effective advertising

Copywriters are characterised by various qualities such as creativity, feeling for language and writing talent. In addition to their know-how, they can use some tried and tested techniques to create inspiring advertising. Learn more about the 4U formula and the 4P method here.

The 4U Formula

The 4U Formula is a technique for formulating headlines that create awareness.

Useful

The headline should convey the benefits of the product - what's in it for the user?

Unique

Emphasise the uniqueness and speciality of the product and include a surprise effect in the headline.

Urgent

Convey a sense of urgency so that users read the ad now and don't put it off until later.

Ultra-Specific

Do not write texts that are too general. The more specific the topic, the more likely the target group will feel addressed.

Keep in mind: At best, you can include all four U's in your headlines, but you don't have to. Always make sure that the headlines are short and appealing.

The 4P Method

The 4P Method is a technique for creating effective advertising copy.

Picture

This is not an actual picture or photo, but the textual image, which can be formulated either negatively or positively. Paint a picture for the reader, showing them their current situation and addressing their current problems. Or imagine a future that could be so beautiful thanks to the advertised product.

Promise

Convey the promise to the reader. How will the product solve their problem?

Proof

Prove the impact and success of the product.

Push

Conclude the ad with a call to action such as a call to action button with a corresponding landing page link.
