Why Long Form Copywriting WORKS

So you've got a high quality product or service. Now what?

In today’s world, everyone is seeking ways to capture and retain attention.

Amidst the infinite landscape of marketing strategies, one tactic continues to generate fortunes for businesses and advertisers:

Long-Form Copywriting

So, what exactly is long-form copywriting, and why is it so impactful?

At its core, long-form copywriting involves writing compelling and detailed ad descriptions to convey the value proposition of a product or service.

Unlike shorter forms of copy, which provide brief snippets of information, long-form copy allows businesses to dive deep into the benefits, features, and unique selling points of what they’re offering.

Providing in-depth information & addressing potential objections is the best way to build trust in your advertising.

Your potential customers have a TON of questions and they’re hungry for answers.

Your ad copy should address all of these questions and more, ensuring your potential customers feel confident and informed before they even set foot in your door, or press ‘add to cart’.

Renowned copywriter John Carlton, hailed as one of the masters of long-form ad copy and direct response marketing, explains the importance of storytelling in effective marketing.

He argues that long copy has the power to captivate a readers’ attention and drive them to take action. This has consistently proven to be true with our clients ads. Thanks Johnny.


The most important part of your advertising is to be truthful and back up whatever claims you make. Anytime you write something, picture your potential customer saying, “yeah right” and then immediately address their objection.

By the way, there’s no such thing as a perfect product or service. One of the most trustworthy things you can you is highlight any negative aspects of your product or service because this will lend you more credibility.

Restaurant Example: “If you come on Saturday morning then you might get caught up in a line that lasts up to 30 minutes before you are seated. Due to such high demand we are unable to take reservations – but we can assure you the wait is worth every second.”

People will DEVOUR advertising if it speaks to their interests.

In today’s information age, consumers are more discerning than ever before. By providing them with comprehensive information in your ad, you can address potential concerns and really showcase the superiority of your products or services.

In addition to better performing ads, long-form copy provides free search engine optimization (SEO).

Longer pieces of content tend to rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs), driving organic traffic to the your website. By incorporating relevant keywords and phrases throughout their copy, businesses can increase their visibility and attract qualified leads who are actively seeking their products or services.

By leveraging the principles of storytelling, transparency, and education, you can create compelling narratives that resonate with their audience and drive meaningful engagement.

Mastering the art of long-form copy can be a game-changer for your business.
