- I want to sell benefits of my business, not the product (business details below)
- I would like to point out why they should call me and nobody else
- Need a headline on the top of the ad that sells benefits and assures the prospect will ad (The rest of ad should expand on the benefits you've presented in your headline and show specific ways my business can help prospect fulfill their needs)
- Please avoid bragging, don't boast "biggest" or "best" or anything similar, ad needs to be personal, simple language, using short sentences and words.
Ok, about my business. Pretty simple, similar to GAF but on city scale rather than global scale. I am setting up brokerage business where my clients in a need for similar services as GAF offers but in Graphic Design / Web Design / Printing industry would come to me, and I would be the link in between designers and printers, charging comission to clients rather than designers and printers. Targeted audience; small to medium size businesses, sole traders and anyone in a need of graphic design / web design services that would not normally walk into design studio... Key wors is affordable for everyone and we can work with your budget!
Name of the business is A la Cart Art, I have logo which will be supplied.
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions and I'll do my best to answer it.
I would like to see your suggestions before choosing provider (you can watermark them, submit low res files - I will not use your solutions, I am just on tight deadline so I would like to choose provider based on proposed solution).
Looking forward hearing from you : )
