Why Hiding Your Copywriting Projects Results In More Money In Your Pocket

One of the best ways to beef up the effectiveness and overall response of all your ads, sales letters and marketing promotions - no matter how big or small - is to actually not look at it.

Here's what I mean by that:

When you're done writing your ads, you will be doing yourself a HUGE favor if you put it somewhere you can't easily get to it for a few days.

If you write your ads on a computer, try saving it to a disc and printing it out, and then putting that disc and manuscript far away from you. Somewhere you can't really get to it without jumping through hoops.

Now why would I suggest this?

Simply because when you just finished your ad you are way to emotionally attached to it. You have to get away from it for at least a week (ideally a month or more) and look at it again through “fresh" eyes.

Doing so guarantees you will see things you missed - like misplaced details, facts that can't be backed up, sentences that make no sense, misspelled words, ideas that simply don't work, and a whole host of other elements too numerous to cover in an article like this.

Now, I'm the first to admit this is not easy.

If it's not a looming deadline breathing down your neck, it will be your own mind and emotions practically begging you to take it out and look it over “just one more time. "

Which is why you should try to find somewhere to put it you can't easily get to. If you're really serious about this, you can mail it to a relative who lives far away. That will insure you can't get to it until it's had time to “cool off. "

Whatever the case, it's always helpful to let an ad cool off. The longer the cool-off time the better. And if you have to go to extreme lengths to make it happen, it'll be well worth it.
