Use short paragraphs to get your point across with in the article. Placing bullet points with in the ad is another great idea. Anything is acceptable, even using all capital letters with a sentence to attract attention to a certain line with in the solo ad.
You can make this as short or long as you would like, but generally about 500 words works best. Just make sure you cover everything in detail.
Here are some important parts of a solo ad, make sure you hit all these points.
* Headline – This is the subject to the e-mail so make it something that grabs the attention of the reader so they do actually open and read it.
