The Best Time to Write Your Headlines and Leads It's important to know (1) what your most productive hours are and (2) to spend those hours on your most difficult mental tasks. For most copywriters, the hardest part of writing a package is getting the headline and lead – the hook into the promotion. I'm a very disciplined writer, so once I get that, I'm rolling. Because my most productive time is early in the day, that's when I tackle that part of the package. If I don't get it the first day, I move on to other parts of the promotion: sidebars, bios or credibility features, the offer, the close, whatever. Then, I come back to the headline and lead again the next morning. And the next, if necessary – until I get it.

Don Mahoney: Cabinet Maker Turned Six-Figure Copywriter “Businesses don’t stop advertising just because the economy takes a turn for the worse. If they did, they wouldn’t be in business very long. When money is tight, business owners spend their advertising dollars where they can get the most bang for their buck. And direct-marketing advertising has been proven to be the most cost-effective way to advertise. Another great thing is that the companies that’ll pay you big bucks to write sales letters don’t care if you’re 25 or 75 … thin, fat, male or female. They only care how your work performs. If you have the desire, you can always reinvent yourself. I did … and you can too!” — Don Mahoney

DON MAHONEY is a co-founder of AWAI. As a one-time cabinet maker in upstate New York, Don barely eked out a living, getting sicker and sicker from the lacquer fumes and other chemicals he’d breathe in every day.
