This Email Copywriting Formula Will Defeat Writer’s Block
This podcast episode will help next time you have no idea what to write!

Picture this: You fill your mug with piping hot coffee and sit down at your desk to write a sales email. You fire up your laptop and open a fresh draft.
But, you find yourself staring at a blank screen — unable to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). You have writer’s block.
AWeber’s Liz Willits recently joined an episode of “Beyond the Hustle” — a podcast for entrepreneurs who hustle to make their dreams a reality — to share an email copywriting formula that helps her eliminate writer’s block.
“When you want to transition from providing value to selling your product or service, just remember ‘P.A.S.’ — problem, agitate, solution,” shared Willits.
Start an email by highlighting a problem your audience experiences, and then agitate it by explaining why it’s a pain point for your audience. This demonstrates that you understand their struggles, and sets you up to sell your product or service as a solution, said Willits.
“The goal is to show how your product or service is going to change your readers’ lives.”
