Use these formulas to:

  • Capture and lead your prospect’s attention
  • Build their curiosity
  • Create fascination and desire.

Here’s how…

Begin with one of your benefits that solves a big problem or gives a positive result. Add a generous amount of instant gratification.

Finally, put it all together in a phrase that creates curiosity by promising the payoff – but not giving away the entire technique.

The “formula” for creating a fascination is:

Specific Benefit + Instant Gratification + Intense Curiosity.

A key element of my marketing process is generating a list of “bullets” that are written in this style, then building “around” them.

The art involved here has to do with the level of specificity that you use when describing your benefit and your technique, and the emotional words and phrases that you use in your bullets, headlines or other “Fascination Phrases.”

NOTE: The master of “Fascinations” was Mel Martin, a copywriter for Boardroom. Check out Denny Hatch’s book “Method Marketing” and his chapter on Martin’s style (which includes an entire sales letter written by Martin).

Fascination Bullet Formulas

Start with a problem that your prospect would like to solve or an outcome they’d like to achieve.

Next, add how you solve it.

Finally, include the result/payoff or “benefit” that your customer will receive.
