Default Something Important (Please Read)

I know sometimes we as copwriters go back and forth about issues...

...and I don't visit other sections of this forum often, but I read something that is important for everyone to know...more important than how we feel about certain issues...a fellow copywriter needs help.

Some of you may know about this...maybe I'm just behind...but it's worth bringing up.

I read a post by Ken Strong:

I Have Cancer | Kenneth Strong

I can only imagine the thoughts and fears one must have when dealing with something like this.

I'm hoping for the best...and know that a positive attitude can work wonders.

There's a way to help:

Please don't thank me for this post...it's not my intention.

More important is to show your support by buying the WSO...it's one of the best deals you could possibly get.

Why not? I am thankful. I'm glad you drew attention to this, because it's important. I haven't seen it brought up here in the CW forum yet.

I'll add one more to it. You can also contribute by purchasing Fast Effective Copy, through the link in this post:

http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post4962591

Direct Link To Buy

...which is, in my mind, is not only an irresistible offer, but an awesome copywriting resource.

But wait, there's more...

Check this out:

http://keepkenstrong.com/

All the guys doing this are awesome... for real... now THAT is a no brainer.

So there Max (sorry, I already forgot your real name, Mark?). I do believe you're entitled to that "Thanks" up there and hopefully this post will help further the cause.

Now, there is one more thing in the works... but it's not my place to talk about it. Keep your ear to the ground and hopefully someone else will come along and talk about it.

So there Max (sorry, I already forgot your real name, Mark?). I do believe you're entitled to that thanks up there and hopefully this post will help further the cause.
Thanks for the updated info.

I found the second offer and just updated my OP. It's something no one around here should miss out on.

Thanks for posting this, Max - and thanks AA for the heads up.

I was going to make a specific thread in here today anyway, but this is much better!

Here's the story...

Think of it as our own copywriting Live-Aid to support Ken Strong's cancer treatment.


Click below to read all about The Crazy 8 Sales Video All-Star Jam:

==> The Crazy 8 Sales Video All-Star Jam to benefit Ken Strong's Cancer Treatment

And look at who's involved:

John Carlton, David Garfinkel, Kevin Rogers, Ben Johnson, Brian McLeod, Million-Dollar Mike Morgan, Jimmy Curley and Stacey Morganstern...

We're all on-board for this one-time-only live webinar and it happens this Thursday, November 17th at 6 PM Pacific (9 PM Eastern)....

We're going to reveal The Crazy 8 Sales Video Formula
anyone can use to get a powerfully persuasive, high-converting
video sales letter (VSL) done in record time.


Plus - Kevin and Ben have donated an amazing bonus Cheat Sheet where they completely deconstruct and walk you through their most recent #1 Clickbank sales video script.


And David and I are also giving you another juicy bonus right away. Interesting side note - this was the first thing David and I ever did together.



And the best part is...

The cost for this one of kind live event?

Only $27.

It's all for a great cause because 100% of the proceeds go directly to Ken's medical fund.

No administrative costs, no overhead...

Every penny goes straight to Ken's family so he can get the treatment he needs to save his life and - do it RIGHT NOW.

Kevin Rogers made this quick video to tell you all about it:


Register right now, while you're thinking about it.

All the details (as well as the bonuses) will land in your email inbox immediately.

@Brian -- this sounds like something that's too good to be true.

I'm signing up.

I imagine this will probably sell for much more after the offer...

It's not often you can get a star studded list of people like this giving away big money ideas for only $27.00.

Anyone into marketing knows that video is where it's at...most (like me) just don't know how to connect the missing links.

This is a no brainer.

Thanks for being so giving for a good cause.

If you'd like to be a part of the program but don't have the funds for one reason or another...send me a P.M.

I'll pay for 10 others to take part of this.

The only thing I ask is that you pay it back to someone else by doing something helpful with the the money you'll gain from the knowledge you learn.

Thread bump.

Not only have I signed up the Crazy 8 Webinar but I've sent an email to my lists alerting them about the event.

Ken's one of the good guys and I believe everyone donating their time is going to bring their A-game to make it a great webinar.

You'd be hard-pressed to get access to any of these copywriters for such a tiny investment. And as the numerous weekly threads in Warrior Forum show, video salesletters are probably the HOTTEST type of marketing right now. And knowing how to write them is a very valuable skill to have.

Take care,

Mike

Hey gang,

The response to this webinar has been inspiring - I thank you, Ken thanks you, and Ella (Ken's beautiful 5 year-old daughter) thanks you.

I'm working on the webinar slide deck today and this stuff is bottled lightning, folks.

And I'm not sure how we'll be able to ignore some of the high-profile peeps that have bought a slot and are going to be in attendance Thursday night.

I don't feel comfortable naming names without permission - but there's a veritable who's who of copywriters registered for this thing... and momentum is climbing.

Also...

Lots of private emails wanting to mail for it and promote to their lists - each greatly appreciated (and needed).

We're doing great but we've still got a long way to go and not long to get there.

Please share on FB, Twitter, your blog - wherever you can:

The Crazy 8 Sales Video All-Star Jam:
==> http://KeepKenStrong.com

Thursday Nov. 17th at 6 PM Pacific (9 PM EST)

You can share the logo or bonus graphics if you want (just right click it to copy the image url), you can share Kevin's video if you want (just click through to youtube)

Talk more soon... BUSY!

Best to all,

Brian

Just signed up for this, if it helps Ken out, count me in for definite.

Who else is going to sign up?

Anyone?

Come on folks, with this line up of the creme da la creme of copywriters, your $27 (all of which goes to help Ken Strong directly to help him pull through this very difficult period) will pay for itself within minutes - literally.

Don't sit on on the fence, just go for it, this is just 2 days away now - take this positive action instantly and help a fellow copywriter out!

It's all for a very good cause!

Best,


Mark Andrews

Is there anyway to get this spotlighted?

At the very least stickied here in the copy forum? At least for the time being?

Site being revamped.

If you want help with copy stuff, pm me.

Cool.

Brian,

Are you going to record the call for people who can't be there?

I didn't see this mentioned on the sales page and thought it may be stopping some people from ordering.

Has Ken got a donation link set up anywhere, BTW?

Hey Daniel,

It's mentioned in either the thank you email or in the download area (I forget which).

Ken has a donation button on his blog (the "I have cancer" link above).

Hope that helps,

Mike

YES, Daniel... there will certainly be a replay for those that buy a seat. No plans to release it afterward.

As an added bonus, we've been compiling the emails each copywriter is sending to his list about this. It's fascinating to see the different directions all have taken. Also some eye-opening in house discussions about how to best inspire people to donate for a cause such as this.

Carlton, in particular, has some very strong insight and opinions on this.

I've sent 2 radically different emails to my list over the last 2 days... one focusing on the event and only bringing in the charity angle about half-way through...

... and another testing a "transparency" angle that's all about Ken, but with a twist on why they should buy even if they have no reason (or lack the ability) to sympathize with Ken's battle.

Garfinkel's emails have been more emotion driven, while John's lean heavily on curiosity and cause.

When else to do we get to see copy tactics like this happen in real time?

Sure, top dog copywriters might all promote a product simultaneously, but I can't think of a time when this many have been personally vested in a project the way we are in this one.

There's been loose discussion about compiling all this and releasing it as an unannounced bonus. I think that will be incredibly cool. No promises (the whole ensemble would have to agree to it)...

... but I wanted to point out that there are many great lessons for all of us (I know I'm learning a ton) in how this whole project is playing out.

Most of all, just support Ken however you can... it'll come back to you in spades.

Kevin

Just about to buy my ticket.

I'm out in London on Thursday and won't be home until the Friday, consequently I won't be there when it's playing live.

Can I assume a link to the replay will be emailed to me or something similar?

If not, I'm more than happy to chuck another $27 at the Ken Strong fund but I sure would like to hear this line up as well.

Meantime, another get well and stay strong to Mr Strong.

Wibble, bark, my old man's a mushroom etc...

WOWWWWW!

Thank you gentlemen one and all. The information contained in this webinar? Priceless.

One nugget banged out one after the other worth many, many times more than the $27 investment asked for. And all for such a good cause.

You guys just blew my socks off.

Thank you ever so ever so ever so much.

Kindest regards and all best wishes,

You're very welcome, Steven.

Glad you dug it - and thanks for supporting Ken's cause.

We all had a blast doing it. Tons of fun, hopefully that shows too.

Best,

Hi,

I'm In!

Exceptional value for the price! Great Stuff, well worth the investment.

Ken, you are in my thoughts and prayers too! (And I am sure in many of the members of this forum!)

I have had 3 sisters with cancer and they all beat it. It wasn't easy for them and I am sure it won't be for Ken either. My sisters all told me that the warmth and support of friends and family is what helped pull them through...

Ken will see and feel the healing strength from the kind support from so many here on the forum who really do care about him.

I am sure with all of our help and support, he will feel encouraged to beat his life challenge!
