Cheat sheets are now commonplace with some eBooks and guides, and they can be an invaluable asset when you are getting to know a new marketing method or if you are learning how to craft sales pages for example. The vendor will usually bundle some cheat sheets in the package, so all you have to do is copy and paste them to get the desired effect. Of course, you can change the items on the sheet to your requirements, but naturally the stuff on there has probably been split tested, time tested and more. It is usually best to go with the actual original.
So how can you make use of the best cheat sheets out there? The first thing you need to do, is find all the free ones you can get hold of, and put the to good use wherever you are struggling. For example, I once wrote a great email to my list, and then got stuck at the subject. I did a quick search on Google to get my juices flowing, and I happened across this great little resource:
“Here Is An Example Of What Works For___________”
Something Every____________Needs to Know”
Here’s A Short Cut For______________”
“Here Is Your____________Checklist”
Now these short little subjects gave me some great inspiration for the actual mailing, and you can see how they might help. We all get a little stuck when it comes to creativity. Even Dickens got writers’ block at some point.
The best thing to do, whatever you are struggling with, is to search the Big G for the type of cheat sheet you need in quotes. For example:
This is a Google search for: Email Marketing Cheat Sheet
You can find them for whatever you need. Social media, SEO, writing a blog post and much more. The question is – what are you struggling with?
