Words That Sell

The words and phrases you use in your marketing and advertising copy are very important.

Words can either add power (and hence increase your success) to your copy or help to kill it off (reduce your success).

Over the years I've collected and "swiped" a list of power-packed words that sell and words that hinder the sale.

Familiarise yourself with both these types of words and phrases and your writing will burst with power.

Don't Use These 'Killer' Words

These words make people lose interest and even stop them reading. They are a collection of negative words, and words that imply "work" for the reader.


Buy Decision Worry
Obligation Deal Contract
Failure Liability Pay
Bad Hard Owe
Sell Death Earn
Loss Order Read
Difficult Fail Spend
Wrong Cost Learn


In some cases it will be impossible for you to eliminate the word, but make sure you're not using any of these words needlessly.

The key is to familiarise your self with both the killer words and words that sell. This may seem insignificant, but I guarantee you will see a noticeable and surprising difference to your sales and profits when you start using words that sell!
