Let's Talk All About How 1, 2 and 3 Can Benefit You in Copywriting!

Us humans sure like to complicate things…


Faced with a problem (say it’s a big one) quite often we second guess our initial ‘instinct’ and:

– Come up with

– Get more opinions, or

– Go searching for more solutions.


Maybe it is:

– An additional one (or two)

– 5 (or 6)

– 10 (or 20)…


Or maybe just non-stop until we find the:


Very Best Solution.


Whatever it is (for you)…


The Symmetry of 3’s in Copywriting allows you to:

1. Break down information overload (and that’s big time)

2. Focus on the big picture (critical to success), and

3. Simplify (drastically) any Copywriting task!


Let’s dive straight into it…


But first:

Take a deep breath 

Open your mind, and

Get ready to…


Embrace the symmetry of 3’s in Copywriting and win big!

1. What is Symmetry in Copywriting Anyway?

Picture this Stunning Beauty when it Comes to Symmetry in Copywriting!

Firstly no…


We are not talking about symmetry in mathematics (a type of invariance).


It is time to think ‘subjective’ because…


Symmetry in Copywriting is an ‘art.’


And as we discussed in top blog post – Copywriting is 80% Art.



Beauty, and ultimately



Is the end-result of “Symmetry” in Copywriting.


Spot on

Just Right







You nailed it

You hit a homer

You smashed it out of the park…

basballer smashing home run out of park

Are all examples of different human interpretations of what can only be described as the ‘holy grail’ of Copywriting and that is……




But what is it exactly??


Again (this is not science) but ‘art’ – therefore it is subjective and always open to interpretation by any reader.


However – let’s give some examples of symmetry in Copywriting and literally the sky is the limit (but will try not to bore you!).


 It could be a Copywriter’s ability to consistently…


– Write short 2-3 line ‘paragraphs’ always (using the beauty of spacing)

– Write with tremendous ‘flow’ (building serious momentum), or

– Write in a ‘way’ (that is understandable to all).


It could be a Copywriter’s ability to consistently…


– Deliver killer headlines (that immediately capture the target audience)

– Deliver intros, bodies and conclusions (that force anyone to read), or

– Deliver solutions to all reader problems (forcing them to take action!)


It could be a Copywriter’s ability to consistently…


– Prepare well (having done the right research)

– Execute (with the right strategy), and

– Fine tune (any content piece).


Maybe it is the:


Layout, or

Multimedia used.


Maybe it is the:

Word usage

Sentence structure, or

Examples used.


Maybe it is the:


Ability to Inspire, or

The “Ultimate Connection.”


Bored yet?

Enough examples??


Because whatever it is (and yes, we told you this was art – subjective in all its glory!)…


The result of symmetry in Copywriting is the ability to:



Engage, and



The target audience to take some form of action.


And that action is not always ‘now’ and could be:


At some point in the future.








Is exactly what you build with your target audience when you master the ‘art’ of Symmetry of Copywriting and that is of course key to:


Winning Copy that both your users and Google loves – hello high rankings!


That is “Symmetry in Copywriting” explained (without boring, overloading or confusing you) but now let’s take symmetry even further by explaining the…


“Symmetry of 3’s” in Copywriting!

Open Your Mind and Get Ready to Embrace the Symmetry of 3's in Copywriting!



Confused already?!!






Quite simply…


You take your Copywriting problem (no matter the size) and:


Simplify (from the very highest level)

Then simplify again (from a high level), and ultimately

Simplify your Copywriting task (one last time) by…


Breaking it down into:


3 Core Areas.

Ready to Break Down Your Copywriting Problem into 3 Areas with the Symmetry of 3's?


 It works because it is:

1. Simple (we can all count to 3!)

2. Effective (not too much or too little), and ultimately

3. Gets results.


Even write it down!


Because did you know (as reported by the BBC) that your brain benefits from good old pen and paper?

Put Pen to Paper with the Symmetry of 3's for Better Results!

And do not sweat it if you cannot initially break your Copywriting into 3 core areas.


3 = the ideal state (where you want to get to) to simplify completely.



A list of 5, 7 or 10 core areas is ‘easily’ and ‘quickly’ condensed into 3 through:



Patience, and ultimately

Focusing on what really matters = the big picture!

Whether it be:


Video script copy

Website copy, or

Blog copy


Email copy

SEO copy, or

Brand copy…


A small job

Medium job, or a

Large job…


Simplify the Task into 3 Core Areas and then:


Try again, again and again (not necessarily 3 times – but until you slowly have mastered the art!).

The Symmetry of 3's is an Art that Can be Mastered much Like the Art of a Samurai!
The Symmetry of 3's is an Art that Can be Mastered much Like the Art of a Samurai!

And then ask yourself this…


Does the problem seem…


Simpler now to solve??


And if the answer is YES…


Then try applying it your copy (again from the highest level) and not getting OCD about it…


In a micromanaging (and obsessive) way where you do absolutely all your copy in 3’s (something this blog post is not trying to do!).


Because the ‘magic of 3’ is that it is a number that is:

Not too high, and

Not too low (to state the obvious!).


Ultimately (and as mentioned in the intro):


Human nature is too complicate (as we are ultimately driven by emotions).




The “Symmetry of 3’s” uncomplicates with beautiful simplicity (something we all need in our life!).

And the evidence??


Scour the net and you will not find much but:




Works (3 words).


Sit down ‘Partner’ (you say to your misbehaving partner – 3 words)

Sit down ‘Samantha’ (you say to your 4-year-old daughter – again 3 words)

Sit down ‘Milo’ (you say to your disobedient pet dog – again 3 words)


And again 3 (is not too high and not too low) – forcing you to go to the biggest picture (as explained earlier).


Do I have a degree in psychology – no!




Do I believe in the Symmetry of 3’s – hell absolute 100% YES.


And the only way to find out for yourself is to give it a try on your next Copywriting project!
