    I'm very left brained. I'm intelligent and I can solve hard problems. I always aced analytical classes with concrete answers like Math, science, finance, accounting, etc. The classes I sucked in were anything that involved creative thinking, writing, art, etc.

    This is affecting me with my sales writing. I am offering about 10 different services on my website and I'm having trouble really selling them. I always wanted to mass mail businesses in my area.

    Anyone have any tips with sales writing? Any online guides? Or can someone recommend a service where people can write sales letters for you?

    I just had a read through a few of your other posts and I think you're being too critical of yourself. Your writing is good. It's clear you put thought into what you write and your punctuation, spelling, grammar and composition are all strong - and that's half the battle already won.

    The best way to improve writing your sales copy is practise. If you keep at it it will definitely get better and at some point it will become more of an automatic process for you.

    You could look at other websites in your niche and analyse their copy - both the good and the bad will useful to you. I have a folder where I keep sales emails and even the occasional piece of spam, if the content was good.

    There are no hard rules to writing sales copy, but in general, avoiding fluff, being concise, explaining benefits, including the all important call-to-action are all important. You will have no problem finding guides and information online.
