There’s one reason why AppSumo has some of the most die-hard fans (affectionately known as Sumolings) compared to all other companies on the internet. It’s the same reason they can convert email leads into over $250,000 in sales when they send one email.

The reason: Copywriting.

AppSumo has developed a unique brand voice. It is a personal voice… a good friend of yours from college who can explain things simply and you enjoy interacting with them. Some key characteristics that make AppSumo’s copy so compelling include:

  1. They don’t make you feel stupid
  2. They joke around
  3. They can make the boring seem exciting
  4. Not too cheesy or meme overload
  5. Not too wordy or corporate
  6. Show real results
  7. No over-promising
  8. No clickbaity
  9. No used car salesman
  10. If it’s a serious topic, they’re more direct

Here’s an example of a very well copywritten headline that matches AppSumo’s brand voice and audience (if you don’t understand the DJ Snake and Lil Jon song reference, you likely aren’t AppSumo’s ideal customer anyway):

AppSumo is like the golden retrievers of the marketing world; reliable, friendly, personable and a little silly, but wise, loyal and humble at the same time.

TIPS: Don’t write your sales page in Google Docs, Word, or your email editor. Write it inside Facebook messenger. It will help you write like you’re writing to a friend (then copy it across to your website).

You don’t need a long sales page to sell a lot of product, but it’s critical that you have every element I covered above if you want your sales page to convert people.

The takeaway: Use the AIDA formula to write short 500-word emails and sales pages that capture attention and inspire action. Tony Robbins uses the AIDA formula to generate leads on his home page with his AIDA lead generation quiz. AppSumo uses it to sell millions of dollars worth of products via email, with this 15-part AIDA sales page framework:
