If you were getting divorced, how would you feel about this ad copy (copy shown a few lines down)?
Now it’s OK I’m not getting divorced.
I chose this niche because I’m working for a client in it.
So, I started with a search term ‘Divorce Lawyers Melbourne’. A competitive and expensive term for Google Ads.
No ad grabbed me. But this is a copy extract from the top ad (name removed for privacy).
“At XYZ Family Lawyers We Provide You with Efficient, Affordable & Painless Resolutions. Our Family Lawyers Ensure Successful Results. Call Us For A Free Consultation Melbourne.”
It’s either been written by a lawyer or a marketer with no experience. Here’s how you can tell.
It’s bland. It doesn’t understand what a potential client may be thinking. It makes a generic offer (free consultation).
Let’s try and imagine what someone about to get divorced might be thinking/feeling.
I hope I don’t lose the kids.
Where am I going to live?
How on earth did it come to this?
There’s no way they’re getting half my stuff.
That took me all of 30 seconds. Now if I’m writing a better ad for them (let’s face it worse would be impossible) I would do a lot more research.
But even with this limited research I can already write this.
