“Advertorial” is a portmanteau (mashup) of the words “advertisement” and “editorial”.

They are adverts written in the style of an article, allowing brands to tell their story in an engaging, informative or credible way.

Much like your Facebook ads, the purpose of an advertorial isn’t to start walloping your prospects with a hardcore sales pitch.

Think of an advertorial as slowly seducing a prospect. You’d take them out, talk to them, make them laugh and show off your numerous charms. You definitely wouldn’t propose, sweating and fumbling, on the first date.

This slow seduction usually takes the form of about 500 to 1000 words. Any longer and you’ll risk the reader getting bored. With so few words, you’ll need to craft an advertorial with the same care as you would a short story.

The general rule for content is:

70% Good Content + 30% Sales Pitch = A Balanced Advertorial

Advertorials act as a sales funnel. If your prospect reads the information then proceeds to give their details after the CTA, you can be sure they’re a high-quality lead.

Why I Offered Leads For Free

Back in 2017, I took a huge risk by offering leads for free!

We had an offer that was dialled in and I simply took a gamble by offering thirty companies 100 leads for free. It was the offer to end all offers. Out of those thirty, only ten got back to us and five of them stayed on as regular clients.
