As you know, trade leads are actually a good thing for your business. However, are you that you’re taking full advantage of their benefits? Follow these six things when writing trade lead ads.
You don’t need to spell out every single little detail when writing out an eye-catching trade lead ad. Simpler is better. Remember that this is a quick introduction of sorts between you and potential partners. You don’t want to overwhelm them.
Just give enough of the facts to whet their appetite. Once you have them hooked, you can gradually feed them more information. In the beginning, though, keep your message tight and concise.
Double check all your trade leads for typos or other errors. Then check them again. What might seem like a small error can speak volumes to potential customers or business partners. Spending just a little extra time making sure you have everything correct can go a long way in making your trade lead more successful.
There’s a time and a place to be informal and joke around.
Your trade lead isn’t one of these places for this type of behavior. The more professional you are, the more serious your offer will be taken. The more serious you’re taken, the better chance your trade lead will lead to an actual trading agreement between you and another company.
Don’t be too Professional
While you want to be professional, you don’t want to be too uptight. There’s a very fine line here that you don’t want to cross too much in either direction. On the one hand, if you’re not professional enough, you won’t be taken seriously. On the other hand, if you’re too professional, you might turn off some types of potential partners.
You’ll want to go with your gut instinct here, but be aware you’re walking a fine line when fiddling with the professional settings in your trade lead.
Ask your friends of co-workers (at the appropriate moment) what they think. Does it make sense to them? Even if they’re not in your industry or business? Would they be intrigued by the offer if they ran a large company looking for your product or service? The people around you can be a great help with fine tuning your trade lead to make sure it’s right on target.
Read it Out Load
Reading the text out loud gives you a better idea of how the words sound. If you have trouble saying it out loud, chances are you could re-write the trade lead to be a little easier to read. This does not take that much more time and let you better experience how well the text flows. If it doesn’t sound right, you can always go back to correct it.
