I absolutely love great questions. Asking the right questions can instantly put you in a dynamic state of mind. In fact, I have a list of them I look at every morning to get me fired up and ready to go. Here are a few to give you an idea of what I mean:
- What will be possible if I LISTEN TO MY HEART instead of the opinions of others?
- Where will my life go if MY HEART LEADS THE WAY?
- What abundance will emerge if I trust my PASSION and PERSIST?
Thought-provoking questions are also a powerful sales writing tool because they get prospects focused in your message. For example, you can use a question to draw immediate attention to your competitive advantages.
With the Quantum LQR, you can have aspiration speeds that are 20% faster than other devices on the market. So why are you still using yesterday’s technology?
This is a good question because it implies that users who don’t upgrade to the Quantum device will fall behind the technology curve. Software and cell phone companies use this “fear-factor-question” technique to great affect all the time.
A good question can also titillate and arouse curiosity to drive readers deeper into your sales copy. This can be a great technique when writing headlines.
