Dallas Clayton: An Awesome World of Book Marketing


  1. I’ve read in other marketing reports that “Now”, “Learn”, “Secret”, “How to”, “Get”, and other action words are the most persuasive words to use when attempting to elicit an action.

  2. Well, now we have 10 very powerful and persuasive words. So perhaps go with now, new, secret, free, and how to.

  3. Oh, but then you miss YOU. That word is just too important to miss.

  4. Yes, it is indeed very difficult to choose only the five MOST persuasive words in English! :-)
