I have recently posted a number of articles intended to assist you with self-promotion and the marketing of your books, blogs and other writings. (If you have not read them scroll down and take a look after you have read this).
In this post I am not going to get technical or start preaching, but simply ramble away about how you can use the oldest attractor to help generate many more ‘hits’ to your site, Blog or book promotions.
It is something you know well, even intimately! Yet are still hesitant about showing it off to the public at large!
You will, no doubt be aware of the old saying that ‘sex sells’.
It is one of the most truthful quotations ever and one which continues to prove its own legitimacy on a daily basis.
Now before you go off in a huff of indignation or embarrassment let me make it quite clear this is not a post about sex per se, but the use of sensuality and titillation to initially attract readers to your works.
I have already demonstrated the simplest of these methods, the word itself.
In this case the word ‘sexy’ made you stop and read this blog today. Okay I teamed it up with a few other words to make a sentence, but it was that single word ‘sexy’ that has bought you right here, right?
Therefore, as long as you employ some link however tenuous it may be, to lead the reader from the ‘sex’ word to your content you have made the first step, you have attracted another potential follower, or purchaser of you goods.
If you are averse to using the word directly you can substitute it with other words which create passionate or sensual imagery adopting a subtle ‘softer approach’. The outcome however will be the same to the reader, a mental stimuli which is difficult to ignore!
The next step is to add an image, which again I have done here, (at the top of the post).
Whether you use the soft curves of a female torso or the squarer, muscular masculine is dependent to which audience you are directing your writing towards.
Although overall the female form has a greater impact on the general populace as both sexes are attracted, albeit for a variety of reasons, including gender and sexual persuasion, which I shall not endeavour to delve into in this particular post.
Once again however, I am not speaking of pornography, unless you are solely directing your work to that market, in which case I would then suggest looking at a very different approach altogether so as not to become enmeshed in the mass of generality.
For the most part soft suggestive stimuli is all that is required, after that it is you work, your content and presentation which must endear your readers.
Basically I am saying that, yes…SEX does sell.
Do not be afraid to use it for your own gain; after all you won’t know how good it is until you have tried it!
