Here are 5 Psychology hacks you can use in your marketing to improve the impact of your copywriting.

Using a P.S. in your writing is the final moment of influence your writing can have on the reader. Post Scripts capture the attention of your readers. According to research 79% of people who receive direct marketing, read the P.S. first. P.S. can be used to reinforce your Call To Action to increase conversions.
