Step 2 Step 2: Determine the hooks

What is the most attractive aspect of your proposition? Every benefit or benefit of your offer

could be transformed into an effective hook to capture your audience’s attention.

Typically, you’ll design hooks based on these six results.

* Have. What do they get when they download and use your product? What will they get?

What do their lives look like in the past and do their lives look

* Feel. Do they feel more confident, more intelligent or more successful accepting

Let’s say your budget permits the spending of $10 per day. The daily spending will be $10.

It’s like the following:
