Your copy should address 3 key questions: Who am I writing for (audience)? Why should they care (benefit)? What do I want them to do (call-to-action)?

Create a great offer by adding words like "free," "personalized," "complimentary," or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take action, so consider inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"

Female Golden Conure

My beautiful girl, Dutchess, passed away. Her mate Duke is very depressed. I am searching for another female to keep him company. Age does not matter. Just a buddy. He is almost 9 years old. I never bred them and have no intuition of breeding. I just want him to be happy. 

Thank you Vicki Meyer
