Stansberry's New 'Obama Third Term' Copy

by 19 comments
Just heard Stansberry's crazy effective radio spot.

"Obama's Third Term"

It aired on a large FM Talk station (:60) in my area, and
drove people to:

Stansberry's Investment Advisory

The landing page is a VSL that's a case study in direct response.

Close the page and there's a OTO and DSO that appear also.

Warriors, this isn't fancy graphics and heavy images, but study
how GOOD the copy is.

    Amen. I printed out the first version of his "End of America" letter over a year ago. That letter KILLED it. I agree... no fancy graphics, black and white copy. That's always worked best for me.

    I clicked the link just to see what it's about. I figured I'd take a look... and leave...

    I'm still listening.

    Bold, bold claims.

    The copy isn't amazing by any means.

    Don't get me wrong.

    It's good.

    But what makes the copy so compelling is the message.

    If we're really on the verge of the next big oil boom, which I've been hearing for over a year now, it will have HUGE political implications.

    Shale oil could very well rewrite human AND planetary history - instead of America leading the way in alternative sources of energy.

    Will this be good for the economy?


    Will this be good for the planet?


    Maybe I'll have to make a video on the environmental implications that the shale oil field discoveries create...

    ...and poise a question:

    Die in prosperity?


    Live in innovation?

    I'm only half an hour in.

    Maybe they already do that.

    Yeah this is a great copy...The only issue is that its WAY to freaking long.

    I would of actually bought this because I am really interested in oil right now...But theres no buy button and I have been letting it run for almost 30 minutes now

    Its like...Hey...Okay let me see what you got....Oh wait sorry I dont have a hour to listen to your sales pitch...later

    I could not get through listening to it.

    Opinions don't matter much guys. You can bet 1,000% if this is running, Porter has tested it to be the control... defined as it CONVERTS. A reminder to us all: who gives a flip if you think it's too long or controversial. TEST it to your audience for conversion!

    **Update: If you DON'T feel like wathching the entire VSL, close out. The full script is on the exit pop-up page. (Pretty typical of what Stansberry does.)

    I think this letter is over 10 years old. It has just been
    given a new introduction each time to fit with the current
    news--to get attention.

    The first letter I read used Canadian tar sands as the
    basis for its argument. So this can be considered
    a control and well worth the study if you are writing
    for the investment marketplace.
